When Things Start Lining Up for Long Term Travel
One of the places that we are really excited to visit while on our round the world trip is Australia. Two years ago, we meet this fabulous couple from Australia, Marcus and Yvette, while visiting Palm Springs and quickly became friends. They just came and visited us this past week here in Portland, OR and got us hooked to Tim Tams in the process.
We haven’t made the big announcement, yet, to all of our friends and family that we are leaving in three years. However, we have shared the information with a few select others. Two of those people being our Aussie friends while they were here during their visit. Sharing the information with them now gave us the opportunity to talk to them about Australia, as well as working while traveling there.
They were able to share a ton of information with us and answer a bunch of our questions about being in Australia. They even offered for us to stay in their guestroom while we are in Brisbane. If needed, we can also stay two houses down at their neighbors’ house who we also met in Palm Springs and came to visit Portland with them. Now the icing on this cake is that, if all goes as they are wanting, they will be opening their own business in the next couple years and said we could work there to earn some funds while on the road. I just love it when everything lines up and falls into place for you while going after your dreams. I like to believe it’s the universes way of nudging your forward.
To top it all off they told us that while we travel to other parts of Australia that they have lots of friends through-out the country that they can hook us up with. If Marcus tells them to take care us, then they will. We are so looking forward to our time in Brisbane, but also getting to see more of Australia. Knowing that we will have places to stay, a way to earn some income on the road and many people to connect with gives us a great peace of mind and makes us feel like this is all supposed to happen. We can’t wait to see the land of Oz!
