Ozroamers: Caravan Lifestyle Choice For Young Couple

The following article was provided to us by TIffany & Matt and at Ozroamers. If you want to follow their adventures look for the links at the bottom of the article. 

Lifestyle ? What is it? We say ours is our life, our way, and we created it with a caravan, a car and a tinny.  

We were just your average couple, who were working long hours in a trade and in an office space. We both decided that we needed a change in our life so decided to head off in our caravan for three months to reset and enjoy some time together. Two years later, we were still travelling and could not get back into the regular 9-5 grind of what some people classed as a regular lifestyle. This was our new lifestyle and we absolutely loved it. 

We have travelled to some amazing places around Australia including our top 10 favourites moments so far:

But how do we afford to keep doing this life for two years?

This is something that so many people ask us. Here are some things that worked for us and we would love to share to help make it possible for you to get out on the road travelling.

Pregnancy in a caravan?

To give us another challenge we were really excited to announce we were expecting our first baby whilst travelling on the road. A lot of people commented and said “ well I guess you had no tv or radio reception that night”, and of course a few giggles were had as we shared the news with strangers during our travels. A new little life to bring into the travelling world, and we could then do all these exciting things again and watch them witness it for the first time through their eyes.

Pregnancy in a caravan? Some people thought we were crazy and should come home to the comforts of family, friends and a house. But we were happy to  keep travelling as we are very lucky to live in a country where our medical facilities and care are amazing.  

Here are some tips how we got through the first 28 weeks of pregnancy whilst travelling: 

Plus heaps other things we did. Our pregnancy journey has been low risk, and we always listened to doctors advice and listened to my body. We always knew where the closest hospital was, and if we would tailor activities around how I felt. Including not going fishing in Cape York which was a bummer for me as I absolutely love fishing!

Which brings us to my favourite part in this article on this lifestyle of ours. FISHING!!!

Fishing has been a big part of my life ( Tiffany) since I was a very young age. Six years ago I got involved in a program called the WIRF Network ( Women in Recreational Fishing), which was an initiative by the Victorian Government body Victorian Fisheries Authority to get more women fishing. I flew up to the Gold Coast on scholarship with other likeminded women who wanted to change and pave the way for women in the industry to give fishing a go, voice opinions in round tables, break the stigma of it’s a man’s sport and challenge industry leaders on marketing/ access to fishing apparel etc for women. All we want is a fair go and to be recognised within the sport and recreation, and not sexualised through the industry. Let’s change and break the mould for future generations. I continued to attend events, talks, radios and more Queensland trips to further mentor new women into the program. The skills, leadership and friends I have made have been amazing.
