Fresh out of university after four years studying ecology, zoology and conservation genetics, I was well and truly ready for an adventure.
I wanted to book a plane ticket, pack my bags and head out the door as soon as possible.
But two things were stopping me. Firstly, money. Spending four years studying doesn’t mean you’re exactly raking in the cash. Secondly, when I got back and started looking for jobs, what would an employer think of a recent lengthy, self-indulgent holiday?
Then a solution came to me:
Why not combine some adventurous traveling with work experience?
Soon I will be embarking on a somewhat spontaneous and loosely planned two and a half week trip to Japan, where we’re spending a week skiing in the beautiful Niseko and another 12 days touring the bustling cities of Tokyo, Hakone, Osaka and Kyoto.
Meet the adventurers: Katie and Ben from Two Wandering Soles. They're a couple that travels the world together, figured out how to earn a living while traveling, and are a couple of genuinely positive people!
Fun fact, Katie is also Tree Tribe's Instagram community manager! (thank you Katie, you're awesome!)
Two years ago, Pete and Tay skipped class for nine months to backpack Southeast Asia. This is where they realized how naturally suited they were to the nomadic lifestyle. Collecting memories, immersing themselves in new cultures, and making lifelong friends on the road became second nature.
So after graduating college, they decided to stray away from the conventional path and buy a sprinter van, convert it into a mobile home and travel wherever roads take them. And they strive to continually live life that way: Two people driven by curiosity, pursuing the unknown like the mavericks they are.
Here's there story:
Imagine quitting your job, leaving your home, purchasing and converting a van, and hitting the road with your adorable labrador. Spending the next months and years traveling with no set plan, working on a permaculture farm, falling asleep and waking up in the wilderness...
Meet Marina, the girl who's done all this and more!
