Oranges Everywhere

The first of the three gorges we passed through was the Xiling Gorge. Truly beautiful with its ruggedness mixed with greenery. It was fascinating to see the ingenuity used to incorporate as much farm land into the topography as possible. There were orange groves planted in every imaginable nook and cranny. This was of course necessary because all of the original farmland is now under 100 metres of water.

Welcome to our travel blog. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to say, "I'm out of here?" Well we did, and in 2013 we made it a reality. We sold or gave away all of our possessions other than what fit in our luggage and we set off on an endless adventure. Part of our goal is to share our experiences with others and hopefully provide some information, motivation, or just a moments escape. The general idea was to look for a place that would be ideal to settle down in. However in the meantime it is about experiencing life in different countries amongst different cultures and learning how to understand and appreciate each other. A large part of our time is spent housesitting which provides an excellent opportunity to experience more of the "normal" neighbourhoods as opposed to the tourist locales. Though we make sure to enjoy those as well. So through plenty of photographs and a running commentary come and share with us our life on the road.
