Born and bred in Penang, Malaysia, Debbie has spent the last decade in her second home Brisbane, Australia as an engineer. Her professional experiences have taught her how to plan efficiently and manage effectively in the various aspects of her travels. She is an experienced minimalist traveler who believes in keeping it simple yet fun. You will not find a fixed itinerary sheet on her and definitely no alarm clocks or wake up calls when she travels. After spending most of her adulthood in a highly analytical and tightly regulated environment, she currently revels in a a good adventure and spontaneity when least expected.
Robin first traveled overseas at the ripe age of 24, giving up everything in his hometown Penang, Malaysia for a new life in the foreign city of Brisbane, Australia. Unlike Debbie, even though he comes from an engineering background as well, he has never worked professionally as an engineer before. Instead, Robin decided to pursue his passion for entrepreneurship and digital marketing. Today, Robin is the Director of his online marketing consultancy and works independently (and remotely) with international clientele. During his travels, Robin gets to explore his creative side as the Head Photographer of the trip.
Seeking beautiful unseen scenery, embarking on never-ending adventures in life, pursuing ‘impossible’ dreams, and generally enjoying a good meal everywhere we go
We want to start exploring now, instead of when we have a head full of grey hair. We want to explore, live in different countries, experience different cultures and meet different people from around the world in our own time. We are not ‘running away’ or taking a ‘break’ from life. If anything we are taking a break from routines and status quo. We are moving on with our lives, just in a different scenery and still pursuing our goals but working from a laptop instead of being in a cubicle. As Rolf Potts puts it, “Why should we spend the best part of one’s life earning money in order to enjoy a questionable liberty during the least valuable part of it?”
