We are Katie and Alisdair and we met the good old fashion way drunk in bar in Wellington, New Zealand back in 2012. Katie is from New Zealand and Alisdair is from Scotland and despite the geographical differences we found each other and have never looked back.
We both have an interest in travel and living the best life possible, not only for our own health and happiness but for the wellbeing of the plant.
Combined we have been to 45 countries in North, Central and South America, Europe, Asia, Oceania and Ali has even been to Africa! We have travelled alone, with friends and family but we have recently returned home from 8 months of travel which we completed together.
Our 8 month trip took us to Canada, Central America, Mexico, Cuba, the UK and South East Asia. We saved for a year and sold pretty much everything to be able to complete this trip and it was the best thing we have done for ourselves. Not many couples are lucky enough to say they spent 24/7 with each other for 8 months.
Our goal was to come home happier, travelled out, poorer but knowing what we want from life. We haven’t quite mastered the last part but we are a few steps closer. We have come home a lot more appreciative of our life in New Zealand (especially the coffee) and vegetarians…
We aim to continue to document our continued travel adventures, our new vegetarian lifestyle and other bits and pieces as we aim to live the best life possible!
