About Us

We are a Canadian trio. The girl, the beard and the dog. We moved down to Australia at the end of 2012 and we’re still here. For how long? We don’t really know and we like it that way. Last year we got our PR (and Medicare) woot woot!

If you had asked me five years ago if I ever imagined myself moving to another country, the answer would probably have been no. But then Brad was offered a job in Australia and we decided to give life abroad a try. My only condition was that we bring along our beloved furbag Sargent Pepper.

The last few years have been a bit of a whirl wind. We’ve lived in a few places around Sydney, Australia and travelled on a regular basis. So far, I’m loving every minute of this adventure.

About the Girl

IMG_3765I’m obsessed with taking photos. Seriously. I have to make a conscious effort to put that camera! I love to travel as often as my bank account will let me. When I’m home I love trying new recipes. I’m also EXTREMELY passionate about discovering pet friendly places to explore in Australia. It’s a toughie but I’ve managed to find some awesome spots! I spend lots of time outdoors running, beaching or hanging out with my furry friend Sargent.

About the Dog

Sargent Pepper aka Sarge is my ridiculously super-sized border collie cross and the love of my life. He loves to swim — but is afraid of waves; he loves smoked bones — but you have to hold them for him; he loves to cuddle — but only if you’ve got something tasty to share. He gets brief jolts of crazy energy and then passes out for hours. He also has no problem telling me off when he wants something.

Behind the Beard

So the bearded guy you’ll see pop up in a lot of my photos is Brad. My partner in crime, my long term lover and my best friend. He works hard, dreams big and pushes me to do things I never thought I’d do. He isn’t officially part of the blog (yet!) but he’s a big reason for why it exists.  If I had to pick three ways to describe him I think these work best: adventure seeker, lover of fine whiskey and motorcycle enthusiast.

We’ve all got stories to share, these are just some of mine!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy following our adventures!
