Hi everyone!

My name is Jide. December 16th 2013, my girlfriend, our friend, and I plan on moving to Australia! 

The Story

 For those who know me, I've been planning on travelling for quite sometime. At first it was to Korea to teach English! Unfortunately I didn't graduate on time and plans fell through; but as they say, everything happens for a reason! Shortly after, I met my amazing girlfriend, Kirstin, who had been planning on travelling to Australia in the fall. Seeing as how we had only met in the begininng of summer that gave me little time to plan and save up to join her! (she has been planning for over a year!)This is where you come in!! 

As of November 11th, I am officially an Alumni of The University of Toronto, graduating with a Bachelor of Science. As of November 24th, I will be 24 years old. The way I see it, I'm not getting any younger, so my opportunity to travel the world is growing smaller by the day. I have been working two jobs every day for the last 4 months in order to save for my trip.  My friends and family can vouch for me when I say I have been working almost nonstop in order to make this trip a reality! Unfortunately, once you factor in transportation, food, and all of lifes other daily expenses, I still don't have enough!  

The Trip

   Incase your curious!

Our trip will begin with us going to Australia on working-holiday Visas for up to a 12-month period. (Meaning while we are there we will supplement the trip expenses with jobs) We plan on documenting the trip fully through a vlog/blog updated weekly, if not daily so be sure to keep watch! Kirstin is a professional photographer and is excited to be able to capture the world through the lens. I, myself am just looking forward to meeting new people, and seeing all that the world has to offer!!

We will be starting our travels on the south-east side of Aus and slowly working our way up to Cairns where we plan on doing odd farm jobs and learning the culture! Then we will head west to Perth and visit some friends and explore! After Australia, we would also  like to backpack Europe and visit our newly married German friends! We have already made arrangements for living in both continents just in case we get the chance. However, the priority is Australia.

The Request

 The money I am hoping to raise through this website would go a long way towards allowing us to experience the country while we are there. Also, we want to be prepared for the unexpected. The Goal is $3000 through the site but everything helps.  Whether you donate $50, $20, or $1 dollar, it goes a long way and we would be ever grateful. I would also like to add that I would NEVER forget your kindness and we would guarantee a mention in our blog and we also plan to do volunteer work during our travels in order to give back! I understand nothing in life comes free and am just grateful for the chance to be able to do this! Even if you cannot donate, please spread the word. The more people that know about this, the better. 

Thank you all for your time and effort in advance!

Love Always,
