Travel can be a lifestyle

Caz and Craig Makepeace have a great philosophy on travel, “Travel does not necessarily always have to take the form of packing bags, crossing borders or being nomadic. It’s an act and a feeling that can happen in every given moment. It’s about living a full life, being connected to the present moment, experiencing unbridled joy and creating and sharing profound memories.”

This married couple, originally from the Central Coast of Australia, have lived in five countries and had adventures in 52. They believe life is about moments and experiences; not things. They offer inspiration and ideas on how to have a travel lifestyle without a trust fund. Check out their website YTravel and find some inspiration for your next campervan Australia trip.

Travel is a great way to test a relationship

“Before every couple settles down and gets married they should experience couples travel together for at least six months.”

Cole Burmester, Four Jandals

Cole and his girlfriend have been traveling together for some time. While not every couple can travel together for six months, taking some kind of vacation with your significant other may be a great test of how you’ll do in life. After all, things rarely go perfectly on holiday so it forces you to work things out.
