About

Who are we and why leaving everything behind? Well, there are a tons of reasons but for now let’s leave it to “Why not?”. What we know so far is that we are both French, expats for 6 years and we love vagabonding!

 

//UPDATE//

We have settled in Montréal but welcome weary travellers and people who want to explore our city.

Vag·a·bond·day·s

/ˈvaɡəˌbändˌdeyz/
noun

    • A particular period to discover and experience the world on our own terms.
    • An era where a person wanders from place to place with an independent spirit.

OSCAR

Oscar’s path led him to Boise, Idaho, where he started his own production studio for a couple years. He then joined his significant other in Montreal and, from there, took the opportunity to work in NYC where he got real serious about digital production and web marketing (and rock climbing, and building stuff, and inventing cocktails, and taking pictures of everything (literally)…).

SOLENE

Solene started her expat life in Germany and Brussels (not so far from home) but little by little expanded her horizons and decided to settle in Montreal, a place she often calls home. Following Oscar to New York City, she turned her skills and expat experience into a Global Mobility career. (That’s convenient, she takes care of everything boring – insurance/visas/administrative stuff… but guess what, she enjoys it!)

Over the past 6 years living abroad, we met amazing friends, opened our minds to new lifestyles and cultures, had fulfilling work experiences, but now is the time for a new challenge.


The turning point

Turning 30 in 2015 made us rethink the notion of time, we realized that we had put a lot of things aside because of our jobs and our routines. We felt the urge to get on some new adventures and break from our ultra connected, competitive and frenzy north american lifestyle.

So we set Australia as a destination and defined a journey to get there, across the US and through South East Asia. Nothing to set in stone though!

  • Southern states of the US
  • Hawaii
  • South Korea
  • Japan

  • Singapore
  • Vietnam
  • Loas
  • Cambodia
  • Thailand
  • Malaysia
  • Philippines
  • Australia

Our challenges, goals and dreams

The goal of this journey is to enjoy a road trip together. It will also help us stepping back and gaining awareness of other lifestyles and cultures. We want to meet locals, get to know communities, step out of our comfort zone, experience new things/foods/ways of thinking.

Let’s Go!
