WHO ARE THE FREEDOM TRAVELLERS?
One Brit, Victoria, and one Aussie, Elaina. We’re a couple, and we LOVE traveling the world. And each other! 😉
Not so long ago, we were slogging our guts out in the corporate world. We had promising careers, nice pay checks and fancy job titles but something was missing…
We knew there was WAY more to life than that stuff. We wanted MORE than sitting behind a desk for 40 hours a week! We wanted to explore the world and have amazing adventures.
So that’s exactly what we did.
At the beginning of 2014, we quit our jobs to live a life of FREEDOM and CHOICE…and we haven’t looked back!
You can read more about how we quit our jobs to travel the world here.
WHAT WILL YOU GET FROM THIS WEBSITE?
The Freedom Travellers started back in 2013 as a bit of a passion project for us. Combined, we had a love of writing (that’s Vic’s forte!) and a keen eye for photography (EB is a whiz behind the lens of a camera!) so we decided to start a blog. Just for fun.
Over the last couple of years, something really cool has happened. Our digital nomad adventures have inspired a whole bunch of people just like YOU to start thinking different.
So, in short, this website is here for you to use as you wish. You’ll find a heap of cool stuff here from travel inspiration, tips for living an amazing life, our crazy travel stories on the blog and, our favorite, a whole community of peeps who are all coming along for the ride too!
Our goal is to inspire you to step outside of your comfort zone, have more FUN and take a few risks…your dreams depend on it!
Embrace the Unknown!
Vic & Elaina 🙂

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US!
Despite the fact that we live, work and travel together (some may think we’re crazy!), the two of us are in fact very different. Guess that’s why it works so well!
So, here’s a bit about each of us so you can get to know better…
Vic was born in the USA, raised in England and relocated to Australia 6 years ago. You could say that she’s a bit of a world citizen.
With a degree in Brand Promotion & Journalism, Vic is a talented wordsmith and as such, is our resident writer and editor.
One of her favorite things to do at anytime of day is to enjoy a good breakfast accompanied by an equally good coffee. In fact, since moving to Australia she’s become a self confessed coffee snob!
She loves a good road trip where she can rock out to good tunes (and some not so good, ahem, Taylor Swift fan alert!). She’s a demon on the squash court and loves to scuba dive. One of her dreams is to cage dive with great white sharks…way outside her comfort zone!
She LOVES to travel (as you’ve probably guessed!) and has lived in 5 countries so far. Her plan is to add a few more to the list.

Elaina escaped from her senior management role in the corporate world so she could spend more time doing what she loves…traveling the globe!
She grew up in Australia and has lived in both England and the USA where she was a snowboarding instructor. As well as her passion for travel, this cheeky Aussie loves hanging out with friends and meeting awesome new people.
Her greatest travel adventure to date was cycling her bicycle all the way from China, through Vietnam and into Cambodia. All done with no clue about how to change a tyre!
Elaina loves to push her boundaries and is a total sucker for adrenalin sports including rock climbing, surfing and snowboarding.
She’s also pretty happy behind a camera lens and has snapped some pretty epic shots all over the world. That made her perfect material to assume the role of photographer for The Freedom Travellers!
