Stacey was born and raised in Los Angeles, California until she ran away in 2013 never to return again. (overdramatic intro–✓, 😉) Since she was a little girl travel was a giant part of her life. Her parents loved exploring and would take her every summer somewhere new. At the time it seemed like torture being dragged away from friends as a teenager, but as she grew older she appreciated it. After graduating from college she was working as a waitress and had no idea what was next, but she knew something needed to change. She quit her job and found a passion in teaching which led her to various locations across the globe. Little did she know that traveling would also lead her to meet the man of her dreams!
Alex comes from Freiburg, Germany where he grew up with his parents and two brothers. As a child he loved getting lost in the forest with his brothers, riding bikes, and playing music. Growing up his family only took short day trips, but he always knew there was more in the world that he wanted to experience. After hearing about Australia’s work and travel visa he started planning an extended trip of his own. It took him about 6 months of working two jobs to save up enough money and in 2013 he set out on his journey. He has been globe trotting ever since.
