Travel Inspiration

 

With the excitement we experienced during our big lap of Oz, we made a conscious decision when we got home that we wouldn’t go back into our stressful corporate jobs again. Before then, our holidays were a means of escaping the day to day treadmill. So we decided perpetual travel is the lifestyle for us, and today we’re all about creating a life we don’t need to escape. We love any excuse to hit the road, and here’s some of our amazing adventures we hope will inspire you to become urban escape adventurers too!
