The Concept

The Plan in Brief


The 'Melting Pot'

Its a simple recipe really – take 24 months. 1 Japanese female & 1 Australian male in their 30’s with all their respective cultural quirks and pending issues; add 2 backpacks; a limited budget; a willingness to experience and desire to challenge ourselves…… Then slow cook together across numerous cultures, languages, continents and other unknowns to see what comes out the other end.

We very much look at this adventure as our own little petri dish, a “melting of plots” and personal experimentation zone if you will, that puts everything on the table and through a range of challenges and experiences looks to evolve us as both individuals and a couple.

This website is really where we simply seek to organize our thoughts and give some structure to our adventures and proceedings. It is as much for ourselves, as our friends and family and really an experiment in itself. We look forward to the result and hope you follow us along the way to see how the plot thickens….

“20 years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
