Hey! We're excited to see you here! We’re Dan and Dee, but you probably knew that already :) In case you don't know us, or what we are doing, we’ve made the video above to bring you up to speed.
2018 is shaping up to be a massive year of travel for us, with adventure, new beginnings, & loads of uncertainty (in the best possible way!).
It has been said the key to fulfilment is to find something you love and do that everyday.
We love traveling and sharing our experiences, but like many we found “work and commitment” got in the way.
We recognised every decision we make in life is a choice and we’ve chosen to get out and explore this big beautiful world while we’re still young enough to take advantage of everything she offers.
We’ll upload all our adventures to YouTube - free for everyone to enjoy, so you don’t have to contribute on Patreon to follow along...
Becoming a Patron is a choice and there’s no obligation to assist in any way.

Why Patreon

We love Patreon because nothing here is an obligation. Most importantly - we’re not looking for a hand out and truly believe in the model of fair exchange. We want to inspire you with our travel videos and exploits. We aim to bring you experiences of something new and different that perhaps you haven't experienced yourself. If we can do that and entertain you, and you feel drawn to, you may consider contributing a few dollars (or many dollars!) to help us bring it all to you.
Some of the costs incidental to our video productions include obviously the camera, editing equipment and software, drone, storage hard drives, mobile internet, and website hosting. This stuff’s not cheap and surprisingly (to us at least) it can cost over $20 just to upload 1 high definition video to the World Wide Web in some areas. We do everything related to the production of the videos ourselves but as we grow we’d love to outsource parts of this as well so we can concentrate more on bringing the best content to you. It all adds up of course and we want to be able to continue for as long as we’re able. The fact is it costs money though so Patreon and its contributors could just be the tipping point between us having a finite period that we can do this, or being able to continue indefinitely. Whether you can (or want to) help or not, we are grateful that you are even here and considering it! So thank you :)

A little more about us

We have been married for 8 years and Dan has adult children (now 23 and 20) which Dee has helped raise for the past 11 and a half years.
We’ve always been drawn to Europe (heck, Dan’s dad was born in Belgium) and this is our 3rd and obviously longest trip here.
Now that the kids have left home and are pursuing their own dreams and goals it’s a great time for us to do the same!
We closed the family business and sold up almost everything we own back at home on the Gold Coast in Australia, and are going all in to create the life of our dreams - to travel the world and experience all she has to offer.
Dee is a writer passionate about empowering women and sharing their stories. She starts every day with meditation and loves yoga.
Dan grew up cycling and sees nothing at all wrong with pedalling 100km before breakfast. He loves exploring someplace new - on or off the bike.
Some people are calling us brave, some crazy - We just know we are called to this, and have to do it now while we can: in great health and while it's just the 2 of us.
To the people who say we are lucky, well yes we are - but we all are!
We all prioritise everything in life and focus on the creation and attainment of those things. Some people value the security of owning their own home, some a nice car, others like to eat at fancy restaurants regularly…
We value traveling and even though we value all those other things too, we value traveling more and would rather have a passport full of stamps than a house full of stuff.
We literally don’t know where we will wake up tomorrow and we love it!
Again, thank you for taking a look at Patreon, and we look forward to you following us, whether as a Patron (double thank you) or simply a subscriber on YouTube.
All the Best,
Dan and Dee xx

Tiers
CREW
$2 or more per month
We are so excited you have chosen to come aboard and can’t wait to share new videos with you.

As a crew member you get access to our Patreon Only Feed where we can chat and interact in the  intimate setting the Patreon platform creates. You’ll also have the knowledge that it’s people just like you who make all this so very real for us!

MANAGER
$5 or more per month
Your pledge is accepted with gratitude and warmth. Your assistance helps us keep the main thing the main thing.

As a manager you’ll get all the $2 rewards plus you’ll be emailed our favourite high resolution photo each and every month with a detailed description of where it was taken and the experience surrounding it. It's the next best thing to being there right? Print it out or make it your screensaver and feel like you were there :) 

DIRECTOR
$10 or more per month
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Do you know how special you are? 

$10 can pay for the fuel to drive us to the next awesome little hidden town or buy us a couple of juices so we can sit in an incredible little cafe while we edit the footage we bring you.

You’ll get all of the $5 rewards plus invitations to meet up in person along the way where we will regale you with wonderful stories of wonderment! We’re talking one on one time here people!

EXECUTIVE
$20 or more per month
You are truly changing the quality of our experiences here!

You can expect all of the above listed rewards plus a personally chosen quality souvenir posted directly to you from the next beautiful place we visit. This will be your own keepsake to remind you of the exact place we were when you helped us to make magic happen.

PLATINUM
$50 or more per month only 10 left
Let’s be honest, this level of support is a game changer. Just 1 Platinum Patreon will allow us the freedom to employ the services of an editor to take our videos to the next level!

Your support at this level earns you unrivalled access to everything we do.

You can expect all of the above listed rewards plus a face to face catch up so we can thank you eyeball to eyeball anytime we’re in the same town.

Our unending gratitude and thankfulness.

A personal, hand written postcard every month sent the old fashioned way with a stamp!

A monthly phone call from us (only if you want to hear from us of course) where you can ask us anything!

You will receive credit on each video we produce (you can remain anonymous if you prefer), AND... AND, we would love your input on the direction of our content... Want to see more museums or cafes? We'll do our best to make it happen!

Words would barely do justice to the depth of our gratitude for everything you help us to achieve!

Goals
0 of 100 patrons
When we reach 100 Patrons, we'll employ the services of an editor to help us release more videos more regularly. This would be huge for us because a large chunk of time goes into editing content that is pleasing to watch with good story lines and flow.
