Part 1


Ross and Lianne “Nug” Loehr


We are newlyweds who love travel, adventures and trying new things.  This blog will follow our travel and experiences as we explore the world and enjoy “retirement from our 20’s”.


We leave November 13th and our current return date is yet to be determined.  We expect to be away for the next 12-18 months.


We start in Rarotonga (Cook Islands) which will be our “honeymoon”.  Next, we have several weeks in New Zealand and then we are off to Australia for a yet to be determined amount of time on subclass 462 holiday and work visas.  From there we plan to work our way back west through Asia and end our journey in Europe before heading back home to the good old U.S.A.


“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
~Mark Twain


For several years we have been contemplating and discussing taking a year or more to pursue our dream of an extended overseas journey.  We have packed, sold, or given away all of our stuff and bought one way tickets on Air New Zealand.  The rest is TBD along the way!
