(Last time I looked, I had a lot more hair than this! Perhaps its just bad lighting:-)

We spend our time living, working and travelling Australia in a large converted Bedford bus motorhome called Hobohome. Here in Australia there are many people who are full-time travellers - people who choose to live on the road. We enjoy the lifestyle, the freedom, the adventure, and of course the challenges that it brings.

Tracey is a trained operating theatre nurse. She is also an accomplished photographer and web designer (and her camp oven cooking is not too bad. :-))

Gavin - I am a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer and worked in the IT industry for 16 years. I was employed as the Infrastructure IT manager for a large Sydney based corporation before taking to this life on the road. Prior to life in the computer industry I worked as an electrician and electronics tech.

I love photography and all things technical. I enjoy building (electronic) things for the motorhome and developing websites and web applications.

We were both born in New Zealand and moved to Australia when the company that Gavin worked for (BaycorpAdvantage) moved their head office to Sydney in 2002.

We have been married since 1996 and make a pretty good team, we have travelled to many parts of the world together and even worked together in some fairly interesting places - Egypt (as SCUBA diving instructors and dive resort managers), England (living in a 16th century castle working as assistants to a Lord and Lady).

Tivoli - our burmese cat

This is Tivoli. She came to Australia with us from New Zealand and has been travelling with us since we left Sydney in 2003 . She is a very dedicated hunter and seems to forget that she is not very big - I think that she would quite happily take on a Great Dane. Tivoli has an array of bells on her collar placed there in a effort to stop her catching birds and other wild life. Like us Tivoli enjoys being a full-time traveller.
