Life is short – live it! That’s why we decided to throw everything on its head, pack up the house, rent it, sell the car, leave work and get on a plane. There, you have the short story. On this blog you won’t find posts that follow a day by day account, this is not anecdotal writing. Instead, wander around a collection of short stories all themed around the people and the places we have bumped up against. So, if you’re interested in a wide variety of seemingly unconnected subjects ranging from Polynesian celestial navigation to surfing the world’s longest wave to volunteering in India to following the Mississippi Delta Blues Trail then you are in the right place.
As for us. We are David and Grace, two years into this fabulous journey which is as much about us as everything else: as we like to say “wherever we go, there we are”. Call it a modern walkabout, not focusing on any particular outcome but being very involved in the process. We travel, we volunteer, we seek out people from all walks of life and are also managing to tick off some major ‘bucket-list’ items. This lifestyle is not for everyone but if you have ever wondered about leaping out into the unknown then grab a glass of wine, make yourself comfortable and start at the beginning.
