Nic and Paul of the Roaming Renegades
My First Trip to New York and How It Changed My Life: Years ago I could never have imagined the places I have travelled to, I had a desire to see the world but no idea of how possible it was, it was an abstract thought I had but never really believed in. I thought travelling to faraway lands was something only the rich did. My dream back then was that one day, if I got a good job and saved up for several years or even decades, I might get to experience New York! That was my ultimate goal for my future travels. Then, when I was 19 and in my second year of University, I had an opportunity to make this dream come true. As soon as my feet touched down in Manhattan the world opened up to me, it was everything I ever imagined and more, I could go anywhere I wanted. I explored every inch of that city and fell in love, not only with New York but with the world, with travel. Suddenly I realised that if you wanted something bad enough you could make it happen… 5 years later we got married in New York, we honeymooned in Tokyo and began to plan our long term travels all around the world!
About Nic and Paul
Hi, we are Nic and Paul, the ‘Roaming Renegades’ we are travellers, adventurers and explorers and our blog chronicles our escape from the 9-5 and round the world trip. We came to realise we would never be satisfied with a “Normal” existence in which your life was controlled by work and money, in which you spend most of your life doing something you hate only to retire too old to enjoy it! We decided to do something about it and want to inspire others to believe they can too. We believe the “safety net” most people live their lives by is a myth; what is the bigger risk, settling for a life of dissatisfaction and regret, or going out there and taking the chance to create the lifestyle you could only dream of?
We report back on our experiences, give advice and destination guides and talk about our motivation and ideas about travel and what inspired us on!
So join us on our adventures, escape the 9-5 and create a life less ordinary!
