  1. So true Dani about our wacky country, sorry we didn’t get a chance to warn you about Adelaide’s crazy weather, if you stick around in summer they can also get 40 degree heatwaves for a week at a time. Also true about our coffee, but I can’t wait to get back to Edmonton and have a pumpkin spice chai latte from Goodearth!! Stay safe and keep dodging the shit!!

    1. We plan to be out of SA by mid-November at the latest, and then back to Bris to fly out to NZ for a much milder summer! 😅☀️
      GoodEarth is good coffee, I approve of that!
      Thanks so much! We’ll do our best. 💩🐮


  2. Thanks so much for writing the bit about feeling lost, I thought I was the only one!

    Having come out here as a typical “finding yourself/ figuring it out” backpacker, I was surprised how lost I’ve felt, even when I was doing my eighty eight days and exactly where I wanted to be. I mean it’s not surprising to feel lost on a farm if you’ve never worked on one ;P

    Excellent as always guys, you make me want to step up my game!

  3. “Honestly though, we’re in Australia, getting the chance to try new things and live in a different country, so we can’t complain.” You two are awesome. Smile through the shit! I respect the highlights of good and bad, and honestly, I love the way you always wrap up a negative thought with a positive twist. Stay warm, and do not forget how mediocre a routine life can be. Truly, I hope you are having the time of your lives.

    1. Thanks so much Zac, I think it’s easy to get caught up in where you’re at that we tend to forget it could be way worse.
      I’d rather be experiencing new things and growing than living the mundane!
      Hah, smile through the shit is just too fitting. 💩
      Thanks so much, miss you! 😘


  4. I am currently doing my regional work, picking berries in Coff’s Harbour. I laughed and smiled the whole way through this post, as I could relate to almost all of it. The power of travel is truly amazing, and I love hearing how much people lose and find themselves!

  5. Wow, so incredible to read about your perspective as i’m currently living the opposite life to you (i’m an Aussie on a working holiday in Canada). Luckily for me, Canada doesn’t make us do any farm work to stay for the 2 years. Looks like you are having an amazing journey though! All the best, Amritta 🙂 p.s. glad to hear you are a lover of the coffee!

    1. How cool!! It’s like we did a switch-a-too! Hope you’re looking forward to Canadian winters! 😂⛄️
      I so wish we didn’t have to do farmwork- but it’s a learning experience I suppose!
      Love love love Aussie coffee. ☕️👌🏽
      Thanks so much Amritta! 😊
