Travel Adventure With The Wandering Asian Couple

Who Are We?

My name is Alicia and my husband is Ernest and we decided to retire from the rat race to slowly travel the world. We both worked for one of the big six banks in Canada. At the beginning of my career, I looked forward to working in a fast paced, high energy environment. After several years into my working life, I came to realize that the corporate world was not my thing. I struggled with the thought of going to work from 9-5, Monday to Friday. My main concern was the repetition of it all and it made me question what life was really all about.

”Adventure may hurt you but monotony will kill you.”

We did fairly well in that we owned a home, had nice things and travelled whenever we had time. However, in the past few years, the “nice things” that made me happy, didn’t have the same effect anymore. This was when we worked towards achieving passive income so that we were not dependant on our income from our daily jobs. 

I hope to have finally found the path to finding meaning in my life. In my mind, I believe that everyone makes their own choices and those choices paves the path to your current life. Lucky for us, some of the choices we had to make led us to being able to get out of the rat race and start our travel adventures.

No one knows what the future holds. And this is probably the reason why I’ve never really set specific goals. For example, in interviews, have you ever been asked “where do you see yourself in 5 years?”. If I was a psychic, I’d probably be able to tell you, but I’m not so I hope my bullsh*t answer will let you know that I’m a high achiever. Just what I know you want to hear.  😛

So What’s The Purpose Of This Blog?

Our main purpose for this blog is to share our slow travel experiences. When we were looking into living the nomadic life, we loved watching and reading bloggers living this lifestyle and that’s how we were inspired to do the same. We want to live like the locals in our chosen place which could mean living there for a few months at a time. In doing so, we want to document our experiences and provide our insights, tips, travel hacks, as well as, beautiful pictures and foodie shares. 

We hope you will join us on our travel adventure! Come along for tips and insights about the different destinations. Or just join us for the beautiful pictures of the scenery and food! =)

Hopefully, we can inspire you to explore the world!

P.S. – Feel free to contact us at any time, just to say “Hi” or if you have any questions or concerns.
