We are often asked how we are earning while we travel the world. We've been on the road a little while now and I haven't yet shared our story about this. Because we set off with a bit of savings, and a plan to build an online business and travel blog before our savings ran out.
Back in February 2020, we sold everything we owned. This consisted of: one 9 year old small SUV (which didn't sell until three months after we left) and a PURPLE 1995 Hyundai Lantra (honestly, it was the best car I've ever owned and people on Facebook Marketplace were fighting for it) 😂
We sold our 2011 iMac and then it broke the day after the guy paid me, so I had to refund him. Our 2011 50" TV was awesome, but it died two months before we left. That was all our 'expensive stuff'.
We didn't own a house, or have stacks of shares or investments to sell up. It was literally our household items we put on Facebook marketplace.
So what did we sell? Everything but the kitchen sink. Beds, mattresses, some stuff we had to giveaway, other stuff we had to throw out. We sold my husbands shoes, desks, tables. You name it, we sold it. We made a few thousand from selling everything inside our home. which was awesome 🎉
All our savings plus everything we sold, was a total of about $20,000 AUD. Which was less than our goal of $25,000 😲
It was freaky as getting on a plane knowing we were going to New Zealand where yes, we spent a fair bit of our savings in only a month 🤦♀️
We were so lucky our first stop was the wonderful Vietnam because it is affordable here. And we are blessed to be stuck here during Covid 💯
We were also grateful to be able to access some extra cash when my car sold (just under $9,000) and a bit more from our Super (mine didn't have that much to begin with, so we took all of it) ✨
Now we've been abroad seven months and we still have a fair amount left. However, it's time to get serious. Travel blogging isn't cutting it (even the most successful blogs aren't making their money, so it's unreasonable for me to think I can make $5,000 a month blogging in the next 18 months)... So we needed SOMETHING, ANYTHING. FAST. And something that wasn't going to take too much time from me ⏳
I've been dabbling in Crypto and Shares for ages, but I'm just not an active trader. So when this opportunity crossed my path, my heart exploded. An opportunity to invest a small amount (only $300 USD), and allow some pro traders to reinvest that for me over a few weeks or months to double our return. They trade Forex, invest in Crypto and shares while I just wait for the moment when my return is double what I put in. I don't have to stare at screens all day. Instead, I get to watch my balance grow and when it hits 2 x my initial investment, I get to cash out and reinvest to grow some more 💸
For our family, this seemed perfect. I get to log in each day, have a little look at what's going on, and then share a bit of our story on social media. I don't have to spend a whole lot of time which makes my heart happy 🥰
Even more exciting, is I shared this straight away and had so many people interested I made my first $45 USD on the first night I started. I bet there is more to come 😍
I'm going to be regularly sharing my journey about how we are earning while we we travel on our Instagram stories. All you need to do is check out our stories (I'll create a highlights reel soon) 📹
If you'd like to see an overview about what we've been up to, please send me a private message. I'd love to share this with you too. It's an incredible opportunity with only a small initial investment and the possibilities are endless 🦄

We'd love to introduce you to this opportunity which I think is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow (especially for people who only have a little to invest and don't have the time resources to spend hours learning the in's and outs of investing or trading) 🌈
