When the virus hit In early 2020, we found ourselves in a strange position. We were intending to spend the year travelling the world as a family, heading overland from Capetown to Nairobi, then onwards through Asia before finally arriving in Australia. We had quit our jobs, rented out the house, taken our kids out of school and put everything we owned into storage.
Then the world went a little crazy. Borders started closing, hospitals filled up and entire nations moved into lockdown.
We were homeless and jobless. Our flights and accommodation were cancelled, but we still had a car, some surfboards and a couple of tents.
There was nothing for it but to push on anyway, search for new adventures and make the best of the situation.
