HI THERE...

HAMILTON AND CAROLINE here, simpler lifers at heart but currently stuck in Melbourne suburbia.
We have four great kids, backyard chooks (chickens), a free-range guinea pig and some other pets too! We love red wine, homegrown food and the simple life (And gettin' caught in the rain of course).
We are on a journey to leave city living and live a less stressful life.
Follow us as we make tough choices, downsize all our things and leave the big smoke for a simpler, more self-sustainable life in the country.
ITS TIME TO START LIVING AND EMBRACE A LIFE WE LOVE!

    WALKING THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO
