About Me

G'day, we're another pair of bloody Aussies overseas.

My wife Phillipa and I have been living overseas for a couple of years now from Canada, France to the UK. Unfortunately our visa opportunities have now ended and we're making our way back home - the long long way. Travelling around Europe and then Canada for the rest of the year.

We love meeting people overseas, grabbing a drink and sharing cool travel tips and experiences.
We're also both musicians and play in a band and sometimes as a duo.

We love music, drinking and picnics and speaking French!

G'day! On vient d'Australie.
Je m'appelle Harley, ma femme est Phillipa.
Je suis avocat et Phillipa est scientifique. Nous sommes aussi des musiciens.

Nous avons vécu à l'étranger pendant plusiers d'années, mais nos visas sont maintenant expirés et nous sommes en train de voyager avant de retourner en Australie.
