  • Description

    **Not Currently Available**

    We are a young Australian couple that quit our jobs in December 2018 to travel. We started in Morocco and Spain and enjoyed plenty of outdoor time completing different walks and day hikes and loved the different cooking styles and flavours of food! 
    Our greatest travel achievement was completing the Camino de Santiago Frances and Finisterre. We had a great time enjoying the mental and physical challenge while meeting people from all over the world and were excited to continue travelling.
    We have since traveled Portugal, visited family in England, explored Prague, drove a campervan around Slovenia, spent 6 weeks in Italy, caught a glimpse of the Northern Lights in Finland and traveled South through the Baltics and Poland. We loved the snow season in Slovakia, skiing in our free time while volunteering at restaurants/bars and helping in skischool, we enjoyed the peace and quiet of Austrian countryside waiting out isolation restrictions while giving a helping hand at a horse stable and volunteering at a guesthouse in the Austrian mountains. We have now returned to Poland while we await a flight home to Sydney.
