Mid-2000s, mid-winter (Toronto)
Early 90s (Toronto)
Mid-2000s, beach trip (Grand Rapids)
Five years ago Tory and I (sisters) were in very different places, leading very different lives. We’d done everything ‘right’, but nothing felt right about it…
We weren’t happy with the way our lives were going – we’d had enough and we had each other – so we decided to jump off the high speed bullet train and see what was out there beyond the only route we knew. What followed was the most interesting experiment of our lives.
Hi, I’m Alex –
a half Japanese, half Serbian girl who was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. I now live on the other side of the world in beautiful Bondi (Australia), with bouts of Bali in between.
I live in the sun, five minutes from the beach, work flexibly as a freelance UX/UI designer and yoga teacher and I can truthfully, honestly say that I am happy – happy and free.
Favourite pastime in Canggu (Bali)
Cruising down the coast (Gold Coast)
Hi, I’m Tory
Where to begin? I was the quiet, well-behaved, smart kid growing up – pretty much just like all of my friends since I was in the gifted program. My report cards would always say wonderful things about me followed by ‘Victoria needs to be more assertive’ – still working on that one.
I always loved reading, writing and languages. As an 8 year old, I wrote poetry and short stories and was mesmerised by astronomy. Definitely a sensitive soul (and a giant cry baby according to my dad)…
