Funding the Dream

We have travelled in debt in the past and would love to travel debt free in the future. That is our plan. Can we do it? Of course! Will itchy feet push us on regardless. Who knows. We don’t regret throwing in the towel when we did, selling everything, buying a new car and hittingContinue reading “Funding the Dream”

Living the Dream

What is living the dream? Is it the Great Australian Dream of owning a house, raising a family and having a successful career? Or is it being happy? Pursuing what you want to pursue? When you want to pursue it? Who know’s what they want? Really? Who? Tell me? I sure don’t. I love theContinue reading “Living the Dream”

Twenty-Fifteen

Where have we been? What’s happened to Norris Around Australia? We are still in Australia and still in the same place we wrote about 10 months ago…. still technically settled.

Off Centre

After seeing where we live and surrounding areas from the air I have finally realised how remote we really are. I mean we aren’t days and days from anywhere but with more than half of Australia’s population hugging the coast line we are worlds away from that. Currently we are at Tartlon Downs and have beenContinue reading “Off Centre”

Up In The Air

My body tensed up and I could feel myself struggling to breathe. This happened only at the thought of it. It was the day before I was about to tick an item off my bucket list. This item involved two of my biggest fears;  confined spaces and heights! I have always been a consequence person. IContinue reading “Up In The Air”
