About
Us

Hi there! We're Maxine and Andrew. We've been travelling around the world together for over 20 years, exploring unique destinations, cultures and adventures.
Since 2020 and the start of COVID, we have been limited to our home state of Western Australia.
So we bought ourselves a little Jayco Dove pop-up caravan and started our caravanning adventures.

How it all began

Maxine

I’m sure Andrew has already mentioned it. We are married and have been for a long time. We both share the same interest. We love to get out about being on a camping trip in the bush, a luxury international holiday or a weekend away in the caravan.

Family is the most important thing to me. Our daughter, her husband and our two grandkids are number one.

My second passion is travelling and enjoying life, making lasting memories. It doesn’t matter if it’s a day in the park with the kids, a weekend away in the caravan, or a staycation at the Crown Towers. They are all adventures. I hope you enjoy reading about our life’s experiences. Please keep coming back as we will regularly add new stories and photos.

Andrew

I am Maxine’s husband. We have been married since 1987. We have one daughter (Chloe). She is married and has two children, so yes, we are Grandparents.

I work in the mining industry for Rio Tinto. I’ve been in mining for over ten years. Before that, I had a couple of businesses. Way before that, I did an apprenticeship. I’m an Auto Spray-Painter by trade.

I love anything to do with IT/Technology. I also love to get out and about and travel around the place and enjoy life to the full. I have used my two passions together here and created this blog. It was initially going to be a travel blog to post all our adventures. Still, life is an adventure. I will blog anything interesting about any part of our life.

I hope you enjoy reading about our life’s adventures, and any feedback would be great.

Our travel philosophy

We believe in just getting out and having fun in everything we do. We are here for a good time, not a long time. Life is short. We are enjoying it to the maximum.

Since Maxine and I got married back in 1987, we have been travelling the world. I think from memory. Our first adventure was a camping trip to the South West of Western Australia. Once our daughter was born, we didn’t stop our adventures. We just took her along with us. She now has two children of her own, and they are also creating their family adventures and memories.

We are very fortunate with my type of work to have been able to have the time to be able to travel a lot.

Over the years, we have been to some great countries and stayed in some fantastic hotels. On the flip side, we’ve been on some great camping trips sleeping in a tent in the middle of the bush. It doesn’t matter where you are or who you are with; enjoy every moment and create great memories.

We have now bought a small pop-up Jayco Dove. We enjoy every opportunity we have to get away and relax, meet new people and socialise.

We love to travel as much as we can. One day we will do it instead of having to work our day jobs. We will be able to say, don't know where we'll be in a week or a month. We do what we want for as long as we wish to, always trying out new experiences.
