About Us

Hello, Hola, Ciao! We are Tim & Eva, a couple of kiwis who have spent the last few years saving for and planning our epic year-long adventure around the world. Our goal is to inspire fellow wanderlust souls (just like you!) to Make Cents Of Travel by sharing our experiences and strategies we used to turn our dream of long-term travel into a reality.

Where in the World have we been?

Eva bought this light-weight travel towel from Amazon before we left Australia. It dries quickly, is packed away tightly into a small pouch, and looks amazing in photos!
