We are currently
Sarah: I am a data analyst who is travelling Australia with my partner Nick throughout 2021. It is something that we often spoke of doing and we decided there was no good reason not to go ahead and do it now while we are young! I am really looking forward to getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city as I am a country girl at heart having grown up on a property in NSW riding motorbikes and being out in nature. I am really looking forward to seeing this beautiful country, meeting new people and learning new skills. I am a hard worker and much prefer a busy and productive day than a lazy one, so I am ready to get out there and explore!
Nick: I am a scientist travelling Australia with my partner Sarah in our 4WD. I love working outside and spending time hiking and exploring Australia's beautiful countryside. I can't wait to get out and meet new people and learn new skills along the way.

What else ...
Sarah: My main hobby is going to the gym - I love working out, both weights and cardio. I am looking forward to getting out and exploring new hiking and walking trails on our travels. I love to cook, it brings me a lot of joy to make food for people and eating together. I also love trying local produce, particularly cheese and wine :)
Nick: I also enjoy heading to the gym and running. I hope to run often while travelling but am most excited about seeing the wildlife while hiking. I enjoy growing vegetables and am particularly proud of the potatoes I managed to grow on a 7th story rooftop in Melbourne! I love baking new recipes, with apple tart being my go to. I also enjoy reading and trying new Australian wines and local foods.
