Hello beautiful people,
as most of you may have deducted from our last few entries our lives have changed dramatically. From not knowing what the next day would have in store of us, worrying about job security, not having a place to call our own or a mode of transport, we suddenly have it all. But as flawed human beings, we will of course strive for more, ever pushing ourselves to be the best we can be. And so, rather than the expected fleeting visit to earn some much needed cash, we have found ourselves committing to a stay of around three years in this bizarre tropical capital. Funny how life rarely respects your well-thought plans for the future!
For that reason, we feel as though the “Ben & Emilie Down Under” travel-blog no longer fills its purpose. Sure, the title is still very relevant, but we are ready for a new blog; a fresh start to illustrate this fresh new chapter in our lives. See, the other evening, we were reflecting on the many years we spent together and came to the conclusion that it feels as though we have lived so many lives already, the last of which have been recorded (in excruciating detail - I admit) in our many blogs. And these past months, it has definitely felt as though a new life has unfolded itself before our eyes, so a new blog definitely seems to be in order. But worry not, despite having moved away from our nomadic tendencies, and despite this new travel blog being a little less focussed on the travel and a little more on the ordinary, traveling will without a doubt remain an important part of our lives and identities.
So, why don't you join us in our new adventure – I'm sure we will have a lovely time together
