Thanks for popping by. My name is Oli.
I started travelling in the 90s. As a teenager, my biggest dream was to go to California and New York. As soon as I finished high school, my sister and I packed our suitcases for our first overseas trip. It was to the U.S.A.
We hired a car in California and drove across the country to New York, where we rented an apartment and partied every night. A month later, we found ourselves a free relocation vehicle to drive back to California, completing a 22 state North America road trip.
The travel bug set in, and two years later I travelled as a solo traveller through Europe and the Middle East on a 2-year backpacking trip. It was the trip of a lifetime! I had grown accustomed to the nomadic lifestyle, and above anything else, I desired to live my life being able to roam around the world.
But first, I needed to save some more money. I lasted 9 months back home and then headed to Asia.
It was in Thailand I met my life partner, Geoffo. We found we both loved living the free-spirited lifestyle. Since then, we have taken every opportunity to travel the world. We have travelled as a couple, as a group, and as a family. We have backpacked, we have camped, we have enjoyed luxury travel, we have been lucky to enjoy business travel, and we have even slept in our car.
More recently, we have spent the last 10 years doing all the smart, wise things that you should do as you head to middle age, such as growing our resume and saving for a house.
However successful we may have been in these jobs that we nurtured for 10 years, it was not living our dream. And, the call of the unknown and curiosity of our world beckoned us.
We have been to over 50 countries around the world. Returning to the places that we love is one of our favourite things to do. We have been to Thailand 19 times! We have found that the more you travel, the more you get addicted to it. Once that travel bug bites, the travel bucket list starts overflowing.
After over 20 years of travel being a huge part of our lives, we have joined the travel blogger community to share our stories, tips, ideas, hacks, highlights, places to go, adventures and inspirations to inspire you to live a travel life! Whether that is giving up your job and travelling the world, taking a gap year or two, annual vacations to beautiful, exciting new locales or just random local holidays in your own country.
Travel broadens your horizons and opens your mind to endless opportunities. It enables you to live a life of adventure, exploration and passion.
This is what makes us truly happy. If you have the burning desire, calling or pull to live a life less ordinary, just go out there and do it. We will show you how to do it. And you do whatever it takes to achieve these dreams!
