I’m a freelance music journalist, born and raised in the comforts of Orange County, California who decided to leave it all behind to follow my dream of seeing the world. I quit my jobs, bought a one-way ticket to Bangkok and took off. With no plans, no travel partner and only a few thousand dollars I embarked on what was supposed to be a 6-month-long Southeast Asian adventure. After traveling for a few months through Thailand and Cambodia, I ended up in a little beach town in Vietnam, where I fell in love. I was only supposed to pass through on my way up north but three weeks later I boarded a plane to Sydney with my new Aussie boyfriend and his Swiss best friend.

With an expiring visa and three months of exploring Australia’s eastern coast under my belt, I decided to fly home to see my friends and family and save money for an Australian working/holiday visa. Now, with the Australian government’s permission, I’m starting this new chapter of my life. With limited funds but a van armed with a queen-sized mattress, a pull-out refrigerator, a WIFI hotspot, a portable stove, a killer sound system and a solar panel on the roof, we will spend the next year traveling the country, working when we can and living the simple life. This is our story.
