We’re on a creative journey around the world, tracking how far from home we can get. We have quit our jobs, sold our shiny belongings, and packed up our lives into four bags (one filled with camera gear, of course). We are now on a journey to see how far we can get physically from Johannesburg, South Africa, and figuratively from our comfort zones.
0 km, Johannesburg, South Africa
After nearly 15 combined years of work in the advertising and branding industries, we felt we needed to do something that would charge the electrolytes in our veins again. As creatives, our need to experiment and create is strong. When we’re not cramming kilometers in busy cities, we’re finding every opportunity to experiment and brainstorm. We encourage the community to send us challenges and give us things to do.
The route of our journey is dictated by our “Wanderlist” (this is our version of a bucket list) directing us across the world. In the 2 months of traveling we’ve covered just over 11 000km, traveling around Austria and Germany, and now we’re staying at a Husky farm within the Arctic Circle. We’ve managed to tick off some items, including “standing on a peak in the Alps”, “dancing in Berlin”, “taking a selfie with an Alpaca” and “mushing with Huskies.”
