Hi, we’re Lars and Shelley

Founders of Lifejourney4two

We’ve sold all of our belongings and are road-tripping our way around the world.

Along the way, we’re sharing our road trip journeys, destinations, travel tips and our photography.

When our adventure began, it was going to be for a year …but the paths less travelled still call our name…

So, our lifejourney4two continues.

We took a leap — way out of our comfort zone —  and made it happen.

In traveller terms, we are neither your youthful backpackers nor your retirees; we fall into that illustrious middle-age bracket. We didn’t win the lotto and weren’t born with a silver spoon, but we both desired a different kind of fulfilment from what we were living.

Back in 2016, in Perth, Western Australia, we sat down one afternoon with pen and paper, and we mapped out our hopes and dreams for the future.

We wanted to travel and volunteer overseas. So we listed all the countries we’d like to visit … the list became bigger and bigger.

We felt so excited about the future, of all the things we wanted to do… One day!’


Once we retired?

When we won the lottery?

We turned to each other – both knowing what the other was thinking,

‘Why not now?’

After saving like crazy for about a year, we sold everything we owned (even down to the plant pots — every dollar counted!), quit our full-time professional jobs and set forth.

Our first trip was an epic camping road trip across Australia from Perth to Melbourne, to say bye to friends, many of whom thought us either crazy or brave …



We don’t think so.

We followed our hearts, took the decision and made that dream a reality.

During the journey, our plans have chopped and changed, but that’s all part of the adventure.
