OUR FAMILY

We are Renee, Nathan,Ryan and Rosie - a young family travelling indefinitely since Jan 2016. After three years travelling Australia as a family of three, we moved to NZ and added Rosie to the mix!

Renee is a Registered Nurse (one of those crazy ones who prefers to work in Emergency) and picks up short term rural/remote contracts as we travel, taking us to some more ‘off the beaten track’ parts of the country.

Nathan is a Carpenter who is actually from NZ, but on the road he is predominantly ‘tent husband & general fix-it/improve-it man’.

Ryan is now 6 and generally spends his days asking ‘what are we going to do today’, making instant friends with any other kids he meets & getting dirty. It’s a tough life!

Rosie is a new bubba who spends her days smiling at anyone who looks at her, never sleeping, and laughing at her big brother

We decided to leave because we had been settled in Melbourne for a few years, and life was feeling a little bit 'same same'. We needed a change and this seemed like as good an idea as any! Once we had decided to go, we just wanted to go. So within 3 months we had sold most of our stuff, rented out our house, and hit the road. Unfortunately because we didn't do a whole lot of planning, we also didn't have a ton of money. Which is one of the reasons why we work as we go, to pay for the trip.

Our aim is to give you a glimpse of life on the road, and hopefully inspire you to think about living life a little differently.
