I first decided to take the leap of faith in trying something new when both Hayley and I started to get bored with our jobs. There had to be something more to life than just working our boring (or stressful) jobs. Hayley was the Customer Service Manager at a grocery store and I was doing a desk job for the government of Canada. Boring as hell when you just finished college and are looking for some fun.
Deciding what to do on the large scale was quite easy. We wanted to leave the city and experience something else. We knew we didn’t like the cold and we both don’t know any other languages but English.. sorry my Quebecois friends. So it came down to two things: What country is English speaking AND has nice weather most of the year? AUSTRALIA.
A year before we actually left we decided that we were going to save up as much as we possibly could, pack only the essentials, and leave everything else behind for the time being. We’ve been having a blast and we haven’t regretted a thing. It took a lot of courage to make the huge change, but once we made that change it has been an addictive path full of new things. This has sparked the idea to keep trying new things and eventually making this blog.
