We are a Canadian couple who decided to take off on a one and a half two year trip from Asia to Oceania to refocus and renew our passion for the world around us.

We saved up for a silk road, self-discovery, food and music adventure from India to Indonesia and found out along the way that we could easily live and work in Australia for a while.  A little over five months of work in Melbourne covered the cost of our entire trip and we came back with more money than we left with.  Even on a shoestring budget we managed to scuba dive some of the world’s finest places, take elephant safaris, buy a motorcycle and drive it the length of Vietnam, go skydiving and visit world class monuments like the Taj Mahal and Angkor Wat.  We’ve met incredible people and hiked stunning National Parks in Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.  We want to encourage everyone we know to travel.  If you are thinking about it, there’s no better time than now to start planning a trip.

Happy travels!
