Interview with Australians who sold everything they owned three years ago to travel the world. They know how to sell everything and travel different countries and continents.
We have been travelling continuously since leaving Australia and never looked back. (Link)
You have an unlimited travel budget for 24 hours. Give me your itinerary.
Alaska to see the polar bears or Rwanda to see the mountain gorillas. Can we go to more than one place?
You have won the lottery. Tell me where you want to live.
Nowhere. We would just keep doing what we are doing except maybe flying first class.
Your favorite travel resource on the web?
Vagrants of the World Travel.
What is the superpower you most want?
Teleporting, anything to avoid airports and long flights.
What’s fuels your passion for travel?
Red wine, it is what usually helps in formulating our travel plans.
Why do you write?
We hope by writing about the places we visit we might inspire people with their travel choices. We love writing about the more unusual destinations we travel to. The ones people may have never thought to visit. It’s also a great way for us to remember our travels.
Do your family and friends support your traveling escapades?
Absolutely. We think maybe we have even inspired a few of them to get away more often. Life is too short.
What is the title of the movie about your life?
‘Vagrants of the World’ of course.
What’s on your bucket list?
We don’t have one. We just see where things take us.
Can you imagine life without travel?
No. We get restless staying in one place for too long. We like to stop now and then but we both know when it’s time to get moving.
If you were not travelling what would you be doing instead?
Probably still working. We did talk about opening a cafe on the beach before we did an about face and packed our lives into one bag each.
If you could be transported to one place at one time, what would it be and why?
Who wouldn’t want to be transported back to Woodstock. It was the music festival to start all music festivals.
Single thing you miss most from high school?
No responsibility and tuck shop.
Do you have any advice or tips for aspiring travellers?
There is no doubt travel can seem inaccessible to many but it is achievable. Don’t ever be deterred, there is always a way to visit that place or take that trip. Life will still be there when you get back.
Your single most treasured personal possession.
A stove top Italian coffee maker…Perhaps not the first travel accessory people would think of but an essential for us.
Language you’d most like to be fluent in?
Probably Spanish. It is the one we come across most often.
Funniest person you have ever met or seen in person
Sometimes the funniest thing is simply a matter of hitting it off with people who have a similar sense of humour. We met a a couple on a cruise last year. Funnily enough, his job was representing some pretty big name comedians but he was hysterical in his own right. We spent the better part of the cruise with the four of us in hysterics about one thing or another. We are still in contact and still have a laugh.
Can you tell us about your next adventure
We have such a big year planned on the travel front including northern and eastern Europe, Israel, the Greek Islands and SE Asia. We are currently taking a break in Cape Town South Africa before our next adventure, a road trip through Namibia and Botswana in March and April. It’s going to be very exciting.
