I met Anne and Nico the last day of their long journey in Australia. Anne spent 2 years in Australia and Nico one year and half. Each of them wanted to share with me a different story. Anne : ‘Australia … What a good country to meet someone you will love forever… I’m joking ! We met in Margaret River, best place to stay for a year and discover the Australian lifestyle. Good walk, good beaches, no one, good wine, good experiences …’ Nico : Nico wrote a poem. I unfortunately can’t translate it in English in order to not misrepresent the meaning and each word he chose. French speakers, this is for you. “A l’orée de tes jours Me voilà sac à dos $ Respirant l’avenir d’amour Nourrissant l’envie de mes mots J’arrive à Perth et reste Deux jours sans respirer Et des poussées à retraite L’aventure nous inspire La routine s’installe Et les rencontres se mêlent D’un coup je croise tes sommeils Alors nos rêves d’un râle Nous promettent le voyage Comme si sur ta vague La lumière sans ombrage Guidait nos pressages”
Marco, 40 years old from The Philippines 🇵🇭 & Fran, 28 years old from Argentina 🇦🇷 Traveling the world full-time for 2.5 years. We met because of travelling. From opposite sides of the world (The Philippines and Argentina) but united because of travelling. We experienced international dates in many different parts of the world (India, Thailand, Brazil, Argentina, etc.), and we went through a long-distance relationship until 2017.
I flew to Australia in March 2019. I have been working as a criminologist for the past four years with people that are at their lowest. And then, I realized I had the urgent need to think about myself for once. It was now or never. I left with a heavy heart and the world’s weight on my shoulders with one goal: free myself.
