… hitting the world’s roads…
How would it feel to live a life with no commitments? With no alarm clock set everyday at the same hour? With no need to take the metro at peak hours? A life with no boundaries? A life on the roads?
To find that out we have decided to leave our jobs (Tom has taken a sabbatical and I took the quitting option), moved our stuff out from our flats, bought a one-way ticket to Melbourne, organized a big party to say goodbye to everyone and worked on this site to share our adventures. We have of course spent time buying cool (and probably useless) travel gear, identifying what will be the perfect 13kg wardrobe for one year (a tough task if you ask me), read a lot of travel books and blogs and worked on some cool playlists to accompany us in the planes, cars, buses, trains that will be carrying us on these roads.
… around the world!
And here you are, your new home on your back (a.k.a. backpack), with a one-way ticket to Australia in your hand and your whole life now only weights 13 kg. Yes, you did it. You are going on a 10-month trip around the world. Challenges? Yes, there will be a lot. Obstacles? Our roads will be packed with them. But we are willing to take our chances for that exhilarating thing called Freedom. So where will Lady Freedom takes us to? We will learn to say “Merhaba” in the beautiful hills of Istanbul, “Howdy” in a local pub in a faraway Australian beach, “Ni hao” in a Chinese temple that has seen its share of history or “Hola” in a vineyard in Chile. So hasta la vista baby and we hope to see you on these roads… Follow us around the globe and catch us if you can!
WE ARE TOM AND NATH.
TOM IS MY TRAVEL PARTNER AND NATH (MYSELF) WILL BE WRITING THIS BLOG.
WHERE DO I COME FROM? IT’S COMPLICATED. I’M PART FRENCH, PART BRAZILIAN, PART BELGIAN. WHAT DO I DO? SINCE I’VE QUIT MY JOB, I WORK ON THIS WEBSITE. BUT BEFORE I HAVE WORKED DURING 8 YEARS IN MARKETING IN THE COSMETIC LUXURY BUSINESS AND AFTER THAT IN THE ART BOOK BUSINESS.
AND NOW I AM STARTING THIS NEW ADVENTURE.
WE ARE LUCKY AND WE KNOW IT.
BUT DON’T FORGET, YOU CAN MAKE LUCK HAPPEN!
