Stand back, avert your eyes 🙈!!! Us Blondies are all shiney and like new again ✨!! We've just spent an awesome week with Robs parents on the Gold Coast and have done 'All The Things' ~ We've cleaned the car, inside and out, got new clothes, had our hair done, nails painted ( Trace, not Rob 😜) and even cleaned our jewellery💍👊!! …So, if you see us as we continue to cruise down the East Coast you should shield your eyes as we are the brightest and sparkliest we've been in a looong time and it feels AMAZING 🙌🤙!!! Now, it's back to the very important business of adventuring, exploring and vanlife'n something we take very seriously 😁✌️. P.S. right after this pic was taken Rob jumped into the muddy mangroves behind us chasing a big mud crab he spotted… So he wasn't clean for long 🙈🙄!!!🦀🦀🦀 Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

中国这句老话,因为缘分才成为夫妻,对西方人同样适用。

Rob和Tracy都是在喜欢旅行的家庭中成长起来的,各自的父母在他们小的时候就常带着他们四处旅行。10多年前他们相遇后,怎么交往的呢?就是驾车在澳洲旅游。最后两人安定下来,结婚,生子。

Rob是木工,搞建筑行业的。Tracy是摄影师,平面设计师,并写作博客文章。有了两个孩子后,为了使他们的四口之家在这个激烈竞争的社会里保持较好的生活水平,Rob需要非常努力地工作,这使他身心都感到疲惫不堪,而Tracy则需要全职在家照顾两个年幼的孩子,还好,她的职业让她能够在照顾孩子的同时在家里兼顾着做些工作。但是这样朝九晚五的现实生活让Rob和Tracy感到厌倦而无奈。

两人身上户外冒险的血液让他们在女儿才2岁,儿子才5个月大的时候,就带着两个孩子开车在澳洲旅行了半年。

This is us! The Blondies in action on our recent adventure to Heron Island to photograph baby turtles! Travelling with 2 small adventurers is not an easy task. It takes a great deal of team work, patience, sacrifice and energy to get through those long days. We have learned to slow down in all that we do and to stop and appreciate the small things and see the world through their eyes… even if it's 5am and we have been kept awake all night by a teething baby!! This shot is a perfect example of when we may have pushed it a little too far – baby turtles like to emerge from their nests just on what us parents call 'the witching hour!' (sunset) … so after witnessing the most amazing first moments of the hatching turtles we had to pack away the cameras, grab our over tired hungry kids and head back to our room for some must needed dinner and rest! No time to sit and watch the romantic sunset!! We love being able to share this amazing country and all its wonders with our little ones and even though some times we are shattered at the end of it, we'd do it again in a heart beat just to see their excited happy faces! Heron Island, Southern Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia.

他们把房子租出去获得一些收入,还建立了自己的博客网站:The Blonde Nomads(金发漫游者)。通过经营博客网站,写旅游文章,为旅游景点拍照片,为旅游用品做广告等,也能给他们带来一些收入。

再后来,他们干脆变卖了房产,夫妇俩带着他们的孩子,开着房车,继续漫长而富于冒险的公路旅行。如今已经1年多了。

Tracy和Rob卖房子时,还将孩子们90%的玩具捐赠给了慈善机构,因为他们发现大自然是孩子们最好的游乐场。

为了让旅行的时间更长,他们一直严格控制每周1000元的生活费, 但有时就偏离了这个数字。

比如圣诞节和新年期间,塔斯马尼亚州的那些新鲜的产品就让他们买超支了。

他们在网络上分享开车漫游澳大利亚的生活,吸引了很多粉丝。各项收入加起来也颇丰厚。

虽然在Instagram上的照片展示了他们旅行中的完美生活,但夫妻二人也遇到了一些挑战。

他们全天候的带娃体验,也让他们摸索出能让孩子溶入旅行生活的好办法,可以分享给其他想带孩子长时间旅行的的父母。

因为在旅途中让孩子长时间静坐或者耐心等待是很难的。所以他们要准备很多孩子的小吃,陪他们做游戏,而且他们还要准备所有的相机设备,这些都是挑战。

Tracy和Rob每天都非常的忙碌。

Tracy和Rob告诉dailymail:“我们的工作经常需要拍摄一些照片,而每天光线最好的拍摄时间是落日后,这时孩子们经过一整天探索后又累又饿。日落后,我们拍到需要的照片,孩子们的零食也吃完了,我们赶快冲回车上,晚饭,洗澡,睡觉。”

但还好Tracy和Rob都喜欢「慢旅行」的概念,因此他们不会做太多的规划,行程也常视孩子们的状况而定。

很多时候Tracy和Rob都会有意识地停下他们手上的工作,放下手机或关掉电脑,参与到孩子们的活动中。这对于他们来说是最重要的。

Tracy和Rob希望在孩子上学之前与他们拥有一段美好的记忆。

除此之外,他们还表示,这次旅行让他们高兴地目睹了孩子们惊人的成长。

在这种生活方式下,他们的孩子非常自信而且社交能力非常好,面对成年人他们不会害羞 ,可以与他们交谈。

而且孩子们在旅途中学到了很多宝贵的知识,比如他们知道食物真正来自哪里,可以制作篝火等等。

他们通常都去免费营地,房车营地,国家公园停车,这样他们的花销就主要用于食品和汽车燃油。

这对夫妇表示,孩子们成长得如此之快,在他们上学之前,像这样共同创造记忆是最重要的事情。

他们每天追逐太阳,在海洋中游泳,享受沙滩和阳光的亲吻,享受篝火、钓鱼等活动,并且会放慢脚步,一起享受这些简单的事物。
