My life was fairly typical until around the age of 30. I attended university, got a job in banking and joined corporate America. Then one day I was plodding through some marketing proposal and suddenly became disillusioned with my career and a future that seemed all too predictable.

I quit my job in San Francisco, sold everything, and set off for Asia. While backpacking around Laos, I met my future husband. One year later, we were married and building a life together in Europe. Travel was always central to our relationship and from the beginning we were plotting ways to become financially free in order to explore the world.

We started off as your typical backpackers, not bicycle travellers. After ticking off all the must-do destinations in Asia and South America, we were keen to experience more of local life and escape the travellers’ hangouts in which we so often found ourselves.
