Wales will forever have a very special place in our hearts. Our childhood was spent on the beaches of Gower, exploring the beauty of pembrokeshire amd hiking the mountains of Snowdonia.

At every turn there is breathtaking scenery...but even though our motto has been "dream it do it live it" we have never forgotten the beauty of Wales. And to this day our favorite place is the Gower Peninsula!

Our dreams grew and led to us traveling Europe during university and after graduating we both decided to take a chance and move to Australia. From the vibrancy of Melbourne, the wilderness of the outback and farming in the rainforest, our thirst for adventure continued to grow.

A short trip home had us restless and led to me undertaking a solo cycle tour from Canterbury to Malta covering 3000km.

In 2015 we moved back to Melbourne for 12 months, the cultural richness of the city was incredibly stimulating and constantly enriched our lives each day, it was an incredibly sad day when we left. After a short time back in Wales we moved to Queenstown (NZ) in 2017 and on our 9th anniversary we were engaged atop a mountain.

At every turn there is breathtaking scenery...........but even though our motto has been "dream it do it live it" we have never forgotten the beauty of Wales. And to this day our favorite place is the Gower Peninsula!
