“There comes a time to set down the book, stop thinking, quit talking, and GO!”
Hello! My name is Sarah, and I am so happy you’re here!
In September 2015 my husband, Taylor, and I said YES to a lifelong dream of ours: to travel the world together.
At age 26 we packed our belongings into a storage unit and dropped everything we were doing in Minneapolis, Minnesota to gain an adventure that would undoubtedly shape who we are and define what we do for years to come.
When we left home we had no idea what the future would hold. With hands held, we took the leap of faith together, expecting to be gone for 3 or 4 months. Little did we know, our adventure of a lifetime would continue on much longer…
The journey began in England when our sister and brother-in-law offered us a place to stay at their home in the Cotswolds. We had a hard time saying no to the opportunity to spend time with family, all while at the doorstep of the UK and Europe.
We were happy and comfortable with our lives and work at home, but felt a call for something unknown, something greater. As hard as it was to leave and uproot ourselves, we knew we needed to answer this call. If we walked away from this opportunity we would regret the decision forever.
After 4 wonderful (but also challenging!) months of life and travel in Europe, we were ready for a change. Instead of heading home, we decided to continue our adventure by purchasing one-way tickets to Sydney, Australia on work-holiday-visas. We aren’t made of money, and needed some more of it in order to continue funding our dream.
We currently live in Surry Hills with Taylor’s previous co-workers from Apple, Geoff and Jenna. Thanks solely to their kindness and generosity we are able to extend our travel. Thank you, Geoff + Jenna!
If there is one thing I’ve been reminded of throughout this process it is that knowledge without action is worthless! There comes a time to set down the book, stop thinking, quit talking, and go! In our lives, in this adventure, we don’t really know what we are doing or where it will lead, but by faith have decided to answer the call to move.
We hope the same for you. Not necessarily to move in the literal sense of relocating to a different country, but to take whatever action you know will elevate your life in the direction you choose. As we take this time to reflect on our lives, we ask that you do the same. When you look, what do you see? What action can you take now to move towards living your greatest life?
We love meeting people and making new connections. If anything in our story inspires or resonates with you, please send us a message and let us know! We love listening to dreams, and learning what gets you excited. We’re here to help and support you towards these goals however we can.
Cheers to taking action and igniting the spark that sets you on fire to your life’s dream!
