18 Months, a 6×2 Meter Campervan, 20 Countries
Some say it can’t be done!!! But that is the plan. Starting on January 6, 2011, we have left Australia, purchased our new home, a Fiat Ducato Campervan, and we are off on our latest adventure. In between planning and executing adventures we thrive, with our horses and chooks, on a 7 acre property in one of the most beautiful places on earth - The Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia.
I met Antonio in November 2007. Since then, we have traveled to Europe together twice. We were engaged in October 2009 and immediately undertook a 10 day, 3 horse packsaddle adventure, on our own, in the Alpine National Park, Victoria, Australia. We married in May 2010 and honeymooned on a two month trip to Europe that included walking the Camino de Santiago de Compostella – an 800 km journey, west to east, across the top of Spain.
Our latest adventure is a change of lifestyle – MAJOR. We will travel to at least 20 countries over the next 18 months, living in a 5 x 2 meter campervan. We want to go slowly, to meet and absorb the locals where ever we can, to live, to learn and to share.
Tony is most looking forward to the gourmet experiences – being a butcher of Italian descent, there is, I would say, nothing he will not eat. If he needs to he can catch, kill, dress and cook it.
I wish to create an account of our travels, tell our story via this blog. A record that will hopefully inspire and evoke happiness.
So ………………. here it is!
