14 YEARS OF LIFE, LOVE AND TRAVEL

August 25, 2018

14 YEARS OF LIFE, LOVE & TRAVEL WITH THIS LEGEND

 

We met 14 years ago while both travelling solo in Europe on a Contiki tour of all things - one from Australia, the other from NZ.

 

The romantic version is we got together in Paris.

 

The less romantic but perhaps more accurate version is we were bats**t wasted and hooked up on the first night of the tour in the bar of the Paris caravan park (it was a camping tour).

 

You can choose which version you prefer 😉

 

We've had some fantastic adventures over the years. We've travelled to 51 countries together, working in many of them, fit in a unversity degree, & a couple of TAFE courses, bought a house and had a child (just the one, unfortunately)

 

But despite owning our own home, in the last 14 years we've spent just 3.5 years there. 


We've also lived in two campervans and 3 campertrailers across Europe and Australia, plus lived in share houses in Melbourne, Geelong, London & Edinburgh, student accommodation in Viborg (Denmark) and staff accommodation in Darwin.

 

We've backpacked through Asia, trained through Scandinavia and across Siberia, bussed through China, campervanned around Europe, and of course camper trailered as a family extensively around Australia working in almost every state (except Tas & Canberra!).

 

And next year we're jumping the ditch to NZ to do it all again there.

 

I couldn't think of a better way to live our lives or a better person to share it with, so here's to many more excellent adventures to come!
