  • Description

    After 5 years together, 3 different cities in France and a few trips abroad, we took the plunge : we have left our flat and jobs to experience Oceania during one year!
    Originally from France and previously living in Bordeaux, we are a friendly and close-knit couple who love food, nature and outdoors, and discovering new things.
    Through this exciting adventure, we wish we will make new friends, see the world and most of all : experience the local way of life in the place we visit.
    We first visited Perth region for about a month and are now travelling in New-Zealand for a few months from mid February.
