Who are we?
We are a couple in our early thirties who love getting out there and seeing Australia.
Way back in 2011 we packed up our everyday life back and hit the road.. The normal life achievements weren’t doing it for us. We were happy newly-weds, had good careers, a lovely house and everything a young couple could ask for…….but we wanted more……and we were restless.
We quit our careers …… cue crocodile tears.
We sold up everything we owned ……. cue minor tears.
We left behind our families, friends and beloved petcat ……. cue heavy sobbing.
All so we could throw caution to the wind and set out on the trip of a lifetime.
An all Aussie adventure; travelling and working around our beautiful and vast continent. We figured a year or two would be our limit and thought we would be settled back into our old life. Alas, destiny or whatever is out there had other ideas. Five years on the road and we have settled in the beautiful Northern Rivers region of NSW…..for now.
We are a plant with shallow roots which is easily relocated.
Let’s go back to the beginning:
We were married in January 2010 and set out officially in 2011 after various short term trips. We thought marriage was an adventure – but life on the road well that takes adventure to a whole new level. Check out our actual home on the road here. Shaun is a qualified Boilermaker and loves everything mechanical and Sarah qualified in Comms, Relations and Marketing who loves all things photography and writing. Together we love travelling, camping, four-wheel driving, hiking and exploring our country – every single inch of it.
Our travels began as a quest to find a place to call home, to settle down and raise a family. The only problem was our nomadic lifestyle became so addictive, and now we have ‘settled’ our life is never going to be ordinary, it is going to be extraordinary!
We started our blog for the following three reasons:
1. to document and share our travels
2. to share our travel tips, tricks and secrets to our loyal followers and visitors
3. because we believe that Australia is THE destination – it has everything the keen traveller needs; from the coast to the outback, the desert to the rainforest, from the city to the sea, Australia has so much to offer. Whether you’re backpacker, a millionaire, a family, a single-person, a twenty-something, a grey nomad or anyone else you really need to see it for yourself. You simply must SEE AUSTRALIA.
We are currently based in Northern NSW. At every opportunity we hit the open road to explore Australia.
Next trip: OUTBACK NSW & QLD CORNER COUNTRY – 2018
We work to live, not live to work.
