Back in the November of 2008, we embarked on an adventure that would take us out of everything that we were so familiar with, a comfortable life in the UK, friends, family and the English countryside. Some call it brave, others thought that we would be back, but above all, most people helped us embrace the challenge that lay ahead of us.
Weary of corporate life, we emigrated to Australia, with the notion of buying a 4 wheel drive and camper trailer and a 12 month trip to explore our adopted country, Not an easy thing to do as we had to start from scratch, simple things like knife, fork, spoon etc.
A lot has happened since then, we achieved our initial goal and had the most amazing time on the open road, which can be read in our blogs, we have lived in Canberra for nearly 3 years, which is roughly 2 years and 9 months longer than anticipated, but work beckoned and even that was an adventure and afforded us more challenges in travelling around Australia.
Along our journey we have been to the most amazing places, and met the most amazing people (and the amazing people we have not met), but we feel have come to know so well because of the blog) who have given this journey its colour and we thank you for that.
The Journey has been unimaginable, and never in our wildest dreams did we ever think it would have developed the way it has. We built a new life and in in our adopted country, and in February of 2013 we achieved another goal to become Australian Citizens and to hold Australian Passports.
What next? You may well ask, despite having travelled a fair proportion of this huge country and discovering this new continent together, there is more to be done.
