Our first real taste of travelling as a couple was in December 2013 when we took a road trip along the East coast of Australia.
We had 2 weeks off from work over Christmas so we decided to hire a camper van in Brisbane and make our way down to Sydney for New Year’s Eve.
Travelling together for the first time was complete and utter bliss.
As we moved our temporary home along the coast we’d wind down the windows, feel the summer air against our skin and sing out loud to our favourite songs.
Whenever we got hungry we’d stop to eat at local cafes,
Whenever we got hot, we’d stop for a dip in the ocean.
We visited famous Australian landmarks…
…and many secluded beaches.
Every day we’d wake up somewhere new, with an amazing view and hear the sounds of waves breaking on the shore.
The best part was knowing that we didn’t have to rush our day and could completely live in the moment.
We were experiencing true happiness and freedom, and we never wanted that feeling to end.
So this trip was the spark that ignited our passion to travel the world together.
When we came home we made the decision to quit our jobs and sell everything we owned to pursue our travel dreams.
Not only did we fall more in love with each other on this trip, we fell in love with travelling together. Looking back at these photographs brings back many memories. Ones we definitely want to relive again in the near future, and ones we’ll never forget.
