AHHH, THE GOOD LIFE!

Over the past few years, a big part of our travels has been volunteering – it gives us the opportunity to learn, to grow, to give back and to take it all in too. We’ve been fortunate enough to work with Indigenous Mayan children in Guatemala, with local, rural children in a village in India and on numerous sustainable farms. Work exchange programs like WorkAway, WWOOF and HelpX, are all incredible opportunities not just to have deeper travel experiences, but especially to have deeper life experiences. We come out of each one with new skills, friends and a sense of pride. Volunteering definitely isn’t as daunting as it might sound – set up a profile online, search through the amazing opportunities out there and when you connect with one, GO FOR IT!  ...

Since we met we both really knew that there was a way much better than how we had previously been living. Working fulltime 9-5 jobs in the city, spending another couple of hours commuting each day and feeling like zombies by the time we got home, cooking a boring weeknight dinner and zapping out our brains by watching rubbish on TV. It is an all too familiar story. Fast forward a few years and we have time in our days to do whatever our hearts desire – study, volunteer, yoga, hike, and even write this blog!...

One part of travel, and the reason which it is such a fulfilling and wholesome endeavour for many, is the incredible lessons which we open ourselves to learning - through the wonderful, to the powerful, to the unconventional; to the just plain uncomfortable. It is vital to be ready and open to face these challenges and learn about yourself endlessly, in the ways in which you deal with them. Leaving home/ backpacking/ moving overseas, whatever the framework of 'being away' - packing it all up and riding the wave of freedom has as many downs as it does ups. That is okay though. That is one of the lessons. To be able to accept the good, the bad and the ugly all at the same time, helps us to approach our lives with the same courage and tenacity, however they unfold down the track....

How ever it is that you choose to travel – whether its solo, with friends, family or as a couple, each path has its own dynamics and excitement that comes with it. Making the choice to travel with somebody is such a personal and deepening stage of a relationship. Committing to being by somebody’s side 24 hours a day, regardless of if they frustrate the hell out of you (a lonnnnng way from home) is a really big step. So, travelling as a couple seems like an ideal situation. Deep in love? In a rut? Seeking to turn over a new leaf? If there is one way to figure out if it is meant to be, take a 40 hours bus ride together through the Andes in Peru, that should probably give you the answer!...

Españaaaaah! This is more of a work in progress than a reflection of a time gone by. We write this as we housesit a stunning permaculture alpaca, olive and almond farm between the border of Catalunya and Aragon. We are currently gazing at the pink-hued...

Sri Lanka was all that I dreamed of, and some. I felt so welcomed and safe throughout my entire trip. More excitedly, there were so many untouched, secluded beaches where I could watch wild sea turtles splash in the waves. I ended up coming into...

If there is a place to start in Australia – it would have to be Tasmania! This tiny island packs a real punch – it is like a fun size version of Australia, only with more fun. You can find real untouched forests (about one-third of...
