Living out of a Backpack

It's Time To Go

AUSTRALIA | Thursday, 18 December 2014 | Views [760] | Comments [7]

After years of saving and months of preparation, so we are off again for a new adventure and what a start it has been to our 2 years away from Australia.

Shawn finished worked on 18th Dec 2014 and a lot of Andrew's family came out for an Aussie Christmas which was closely followed by a New Zealand wedding on Waiheke Island.

After 2 weeks in the South Island of New Zealand catching up with friends//family, we returned to Sydney to move out, pack our packs and we are now ready to go.

We just wanted to share our whereabouts (every few months) via this blog, and please if anyone would like to join us on route, please do so. Friends and family are very important to us.

Please leave comments at the very bottom of this page.

Hope everyone's new year has started well.
