Who are we?
We are Kristen and John. Two thirty-somethings from Sydney, Australia. We left home in November 2013 and our travels to date have taken us to Patagonia, Antarctica, Easter Island, Bolivia, Albania, Turkey, Taiwan and more.
In November 2013, we decided it was time to see more of the world and so quit our jobs, sold our car, packed up our rented flat, said goodbye to family and friends and boarded a plane for Buenos Aires. Click the Map link above to see where we’ve been so far.
Who aren’t we?
We aren’t digital nomads (we wish), we’re not permanently traveling (again, we wish) and we didn’t sell everything we owned to travel the world (although we got rid of a LOT of stuff).
We have a packed storage unit back in Sydney which we’ll need again one day, as our money won’t last forever. But we hope to be lucky enough to live this dream for a year or two (or as long as the money lasts..) before settling back into work and life.
Travelling is what we love. We’ve been to over 56 countries between us, 53 of those we’ve traveled to together.
You can read more about our decision to leave Sydney and our adventures in these pages.
Why the blog?
Did I mention we’re thirty-something? Yep, we’re not as young as we used to be, so the main purpose of this blog is to help us remember the details of our trip in years to come, as well as keep family and friends up to date with our travels.
This blog is also a way for us to learn new skills while on the road, as we have no idea how to do this. So it’s a fun way for us to to improve our photography, writing and learn how to build a website. We’re amateurs and new to all this – so be kind.
If you are visiting our site and we haven’t met – welcome! If you’re looking for information about somewhere we’ve been, more than happy to answer any questions you have.
Thanks for visiting.
Kristen and John
