Tracey was born in Whangarei, New Zealand, but grew up in Tauranga, New Zealand. Max was born in Nowra, Australia, but spent the majority of his childhood in Noumea, New Caledonia. We met in Rotorua, New Zealand in 2013 at a Tough Guy running race. We spent 2 years living, exploring and working in Tauranga, Max as a Structural Engineer and Tracey as an Accountant, saving to fund our travels for the next few years.

At the end of 2016 we escaped the rat race (THERE’S SO MUCH MORE TO LIFE) to follow a shared dream of travelling the world.

The squirrel and the raccoon plan to travel the world, chasing our dreams, meeting new friends and making lasting memories.

Never completely satisfied with 2 week/month long holidays we decided to pull the pin on working and get on with what life’s really about – having a good time! Now that we can, we plan to spend the majority of our days exploring/beaching/snowboarding.

We hope you enjoy our blog!
