Work once consumed us. There was a time when we had a mortgage and cars, good jobs and expensive things, but in realizing the futility of material possessions, we gained a new outlook on life itself.
We are the architects of our own reality and we are here to inspire you to create a happier life for yourself. Happiness comes in many forms, but for us, we find joy through travel and eye-opening experiences.
We wander the globe in search of off-the-beaten-path destinations, authentic cultural experiences, exotic cuisines, beautiful beaches and wild adventures…
When I decided to break away from my cubicle-bound life, I was 23 years old, the daughter of a protective family in India and had graduated from university in Singapore only two years earlier with a not-so-helpful Economics degree and a not-so-comforting amount of student debt.
In retrospect, though, my decision was not impulsive: the universe had been giving me signs all along. I had entered the job market in the middle of the financial recession and felt lucky to land the role of social media strategist at the Singapore Tourism Board.
Especially lucky because, as it turned out, this was the first sign pointing me toward my true passion…
As our ideas about a less conventional life became clearer, Ayaz and I debated whether to leave behind all that was certain – our apartment, jobs and steady salaries, family and friends – to chase our passion for traveling.
Despite feeling terrified, in April 2012 I made the leap into freelance work and spent a number of months accruing steady contract gigs as a digital content producer and writer.
After Ayaz quit his job in February 2013, we packed our worldly goods into a storage unit, bought a car and set out to see more of the world…
I had no savings (and only pennies in my checking account), plus more than $10,000 in debt, including a bill from my divorce lawyer that still needed paying.
I had been abroad exactly four times, including just once as an adult. I had a comfortable income as a wedding photographer, complete with a three-storey house with two cars; I’d never stayed in a hostel or travelled alone.
I didn’t even own a traveller’s backpack. What I did have were two assignments as a travel photographer under my belt – and with that alone, I thought, it would be easy…
I haven’t been able to keep my feet firmly in one place since the age of 18.
I have only once tried to conform to a regular nine-to-five desk job at a travel agency – an endeavour that failed within six months.
Instead, I have made a career out of travelling the globe, I have recorded my adventures in my blog, making money through any random odd job I can find in foreign lands and spending only $100 each week on all of my expenses…
