But it is also the hardest thing that we have ever done in our life ! In a really short time, we were in a new place with an another language looking for job completely alone ! From this time our relationship changed forever. We started to be each other more than being lovers only, we started to be a real family ! We used to speak, sing and drive 24/7 during our road trip and this is the most beautiful time we spent together. We started to learn to be happy in the nature without technology, party or friends and so we got to know each other better than ever.

For us becoming backpackers is more than a dream is a way to live. Sometimes is not easy at all but thanks to this experience we will be stronger and ready to do everything together all around the world !’

After we drove from Darwin to Cairns and we are now traveling on the east coast …
