I recently received an email from new blogging duo Chanel and Steve who are embarking on a How Far From Home journey which they will be documenting on their blog and found it a fascinating idea.
I’ll let them explain…
After nearly 15 combined years of work in the advertising and branding industries, our lives were pretty set. They were filled with family, friends, amazing jobs, shiny cars and a beautiful home. Sounds pretty great, hey? Well we thought so too…until we felt the routine of perfection creeping up on us and aging us with its complacency. We were no longer feeling challenged, and thinking back to the last time my life hit a little wall, the ‘Yes Man’ theory had risen its shiny head again, except this time, there was two of us saying “yes” to the world, and all it has to offer. We’re looking at a journey that allows us to live outside of the shuddering comfort zone, and gives us the opportunity to say “yes” to a whole bunch of crazy cool experiences whilst fueling our creative needs. So on March 2nd 2015, we waved goodbye to sunny South Africa, and said “yes” to the next available flight.
Now read on to find out a bit more about this cool, crazy couple and don’t forget to check in on their blog occasionally to see “how far from home” they are!!
Know – Creative thinking can solve absolutely any problem.
Love – The sound of our cameras’ shutters at 5am, as we overlook yet another sunrise.
Want – To successfully tick off our entire Wanderlist, and then create another one.
Wear – Not much, unless we’re in public. Then we’re probably sporting some jeans, t-shirts and hoodies.
Need – To collect more memories, and not things.
