There are so many stories and experiences we would love to share with others, from all of the adventures that we have coming up, but also all the ones we’ve had since the start of 2015, two full years of craziness before we even started this blog. So our goal is to inspire people, and for them to realize that travelling is possible- whether it be a week in Hawaii, a month in Thailand, a year or two in Australia, or making travelling your living….we’ve done it.
We have seen 14 countries in our first two years of travel, and with the launch of our new blog, that number is actively growing.
Travelling just seems to be home for Robin and I. Seeing new places and meeting new people leaves us with such a sense of adventure and wonder. There is so much out there, so much more than the small towns we’re from. I (Sarah) come from a little valley in Atlantic Canada and let me tell you, it is absolutely beautiful. It has so many great things, but it’s also small. It’s the ultimate comfort zone. But where is the excitement in that? Everybody is different, but I personally just could not find the excitement anymore. But I didn’t realize that right away. I didn’t realize that until I left for the first time. It was supposed to just be a fun 6 month trip, and I would get back home and “start doing something with my life.” Once I got out of my comfort zone, I just knew. I knew I wouldn’t be getting on that flight home, and I knew I’d opened up something completely new inside me. I realized that I didn’t need to go home to do something with my life, I WAS doing something with my life. For years I was stressing about what in the world I was going to do after high school (because we all know that the idea of going to University/College starts getting pushed down our throats from since we can remember…or at least here where I come from it is). Even when I was in the beginnings of my travels, I would tell people “Yeah, I don’t know what I want to do yet…” but it took me a little while to realize that I was doing what I wanted to do- and I still am. I love travelling. I love meeting new people, and experiencing new cultures and food and wildlife and everything that this planet has to offer.
So- We’ve learned so much from travelling so far, but we still have so much to learn. I still get stressed, I get uncomfortable, I get homesick….but it’s all part of the experience.
Here, we begin to tell our many stories and we hope that we can inspire at least one person to just go. Go for it. Get out of your comfort zone, and feel some excitement.
We will talk about our tips and tricks, budgeting and how we’ve managed to do this money-wise, equipment we use/have used, our countless stories, what its like travelling as a couple and being from two different countries, our experiences with obtaining visa’s…and so much more. So…come along for the ride.
We hope you are as excited as we are!
