about-us

A bit about ourselves

In 2008 an Australian boy met a Brazilian girl in a Sydney pub. What started as a casual encounter led to many Skype conversations, some international changes of address, and ultimately this round-the-world adventure.

Both of us have learned and loved the other’s culture, language, friends, and family. Karen was born and raised in Brasilia where she learned her trade as a digital account manager. Like most Brazilians, she loves music and dancing. Her interest in football, however, was not due to her Brazilian blood, but her Australian boyfriend. Meet Liam, a Sydney-born graphic designer with a passion for football and food. If you have food left on your plate, expect to hear Liam say, ‘are you gonna eat that?’ And like most Aussies and Brazilians, this travelling couple doesn’t mind a nice cold beer or two.

We both see this trip as a test. If we pass the test, we may just continue to ‘Work as we go.’
