Hi! It’s been a while since we’ve introduced ourselves, so here we go! This is us. A multinational family of three who bought one way tickets, left our jobs, our friends, our family, and our beautiful seaside New Zealand town to take an unforgettable trip around the world.
Sarah is a 28 yo freelance photographer + designer, a classic INFP + Scorpio, loves spontaneous adventures beneath big skies and bright stars and appreciates a good espresso. She is American by birth, spent her childhood in Southeast Asia and all her teenage years as a Floridian beach bum until she married this handsome, bearded devil and left the USA with four suitcases, a few hundred bucks and a dream to live in the most beautiful country on earth. She now calls New Zealand home, but has an eternal wanderlust that most likely won’t ever be satisfied.
Josh is a 31 yo kiwi carpenter + previous construction manager from a small South Island town. He is the friendliest guy you’ll ever meet who can strike up a conversation with anyone! He’s happiest when he’s meeting new people, hiking amongst the mountains, and being productive. He can fix just about anything and can build a house in under 4.5 months while working full time, studying part time, and being an awesome, super involved dad. He’s stoked to be exploring this big, wide world.
Lena is a 5 year old extroverted explorer who lives for people and a good adventure. Born and raised in Timaru, New Zealand, she is a kiwi through and through. Her favourite things on earth consist of riding horses, chocolate ice cream, hiking in the snowy mountains, rock climbing, dinosaur fossils, any excuse for a party, and a good yarn! She loves telling people she is worldschooling this year! You’ll most likely find her striking up a conversation with elderly ladies in supermarkets, cuddling strangers’ babies, lovingly smothering any dog she sees, dreaming of riding horses through the West, singing “you are my sunshine”, explaining facts about Big Horn Sheep to whoever is sitting behind her on an airplane, & picking up any rubbish she sees!
We are almost two months into this crazy adventure around the world!
