Update | Where Have We Been?

Hello old friends.  So I’ll admit, we’ve been a bit elusive lately.  While we’re still living in Australia and traveling, we haven’t been writing about our adventures as intended.  If you follow us on Instagram we’re still pretty active and you may have gotten a sneak peek into our current lives, but we haven’t been spending much time on our other platforms.

There are a couple reasons for this—first and foremost has been a personal need to distance ourselves from social media, and really the digital world altogether.  I’ve previously written about what I feel is a definite dependence on technology in most of us these days, and I’ve been experimenting with how to properly find balance in my life.  That can be hard when you run a travel site, but I felt the need to take some time to be present IRL.  The other reason for our absence has been a lot of change in our lives these past few months.  We left Port Douglas and spent a few weeks traveling in Indonesia.  When we came back to Australia we had family visiting, so we spent a week in Sydney before moving up to Brisbane.  For a month or so everything revolved around getting settled--finding work and a place to live.  It can be difficult to maintain an active online presence through all this.

The short of it is that we’re back now.  We’ll be based in Brisbane until at least early next year and I’ve got tons of content in the pipeline.  We’re also looking ahead to the end of our Australian visas and there will likely be some big changes in store for us by this time next year.  But for now, the lights are back on and I’ll be posting much more regularly.  Thanks for following along <3.
