Welcome to our page and Blog. Jolene and I are a married couple who have had a dream for many years to travel. We never knew how it was going to be possible but we knew that the “Travel Bug” was a part of us and always will be. I am currently 27 and Jolene is …. (Hmmm, on second thought, let me not say.)
During our engagement party we were sitting and talking to one of my Cousins about our dreams to travel. We were saying how it is hard to do it when you want to buy a house and keep up with all the monthly debit orders for cars and credit card repayments. She turned around and just asked why on earth are we even worrying about purchasing a house and worrying about keeping up with the Debit Orders etc when we were not even going to need these things to travel… “you can’t pack your house or car in a backpack”.
It was like being slapped in the face, but with words!
During the drive home Jolene and I decided we are going to travel! That was in April 2014. We never bought a house, we payed up a car and Sold it, payed for our wedding, got rid of any debt, saved like crazy and started a travelling fund with friends of ours. We went through some family tragedies which stalled our plans and life got harder, we even started to lose our faith that travelling was even possible.
Finally we said Screw It, everything we do MUST be with purpose, and that purpose was to go travel. We had to start making decisions that did not cater to other peoples needs and only to our need to travel. Since then it was actually quite easy.
I will not bore you with anymore details but leave you with this:
LIFE HAPPENS AND TIME GOES ON, YOU MIGHT AS WELL LIVE YOUR DREAMS SOONER RATHER THAN LATER.
