We’ve been very fortunate to have traveled to some beautiful and interesting places over the years and we’ve always wanted more.
In June 2015 we left our jobs, we sold the car, rented our home, gave away or sold most of our stuff and packed our few remaining possessions into a small storage unit. And now we’re on our way to wherever, with just a small suitcase each.
With our 4 kids settled in their own adult lives and Dave’s elderly Dad in reasonable health, we felt that now is the perfect time to take off for a while.
Our new lifestyle started with a few months traveling and house sitting in New Zealand then we headed over to UK & Europe. Now we’re doing it all over again.
Along the way we’ve been loving our house/pet sitting gigs and have fallen in love with so many gorgeous animals. plus we’ve made great friends across the world.
When not house sitting we mostly stay in Airbnb apartments. We prefer slow travel, so staying in a house or apartment enables us to unpack, relax and prepare our own meals. We explore the neighbourhood and live like a local.
Making it up as we go is a fairly good representation of how we approach our current life. That’s not to say there isn’t some planning and structure around our decisions, we’re certainly not completely winging it without some order.
We’re hoping to keep this little blog going so that we can look back on our travels and our own personal journeys.
