Two people exploring the world, seeking adventure & unique experiences.
The name of Tora Adventure comes from the mix of our first names, Toby and Rodora and our love of Adventure.
Toby is originally from Adelaide, Australia and spent the last few years living in London, UK, Vancouver, Canada and Toronto, Canada working as an Accountant.
Rodora is originally from Sydney, Australia and also spent the last few years in London, Vancouver and Toronto working as an accountant.
We met each other while both living in London and on a trip to Running with the Bulls Festival in Pamplona, Spain in 2008. We actually got engaged during this trip on top of a volcano in Nicaragua on Valentines day (see this blog post).
This “big trip” that we started the blog for began on August 30, 2013 and will take us from what we called home in Toronto for 3 years through the United States for 3 weeks, then onto Mexico and south into the rest of Central America. The plan is to continue south until we get to Chile. We still haven’t really decided on when we’ll end the trip officially, but we’re currently aiming for about 15 months and December 2014.
We’ve never done anything like this before in terms of a blog or travelling for so long; so any constructive comments are openly accepted.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
