Hey , thanks for joining us!
How’s it going? We’re Leah + Declan! In 2017 we were bored of our 9-5 jobs so we decided to pack up and hit the road to start an adventure of a lifetime in Australia. We’re now living in our beloved campervan ‘Mighty Mo’ leaving tracks, not growing roots. There’s nothing we love more than exploring the great outdoors with a bag of snacks and our cameras!
We started Officer Travels as a way of documenting our adventures and hopefully encourage you to take the leap into doing what you love! We’re not perfect, we don’t always get it right and heaven knows we’ve been truly lost a few times. That’s all part of the fun for us!
Through Officer Travels, we are dedicated to bringing you destinations guides, tips on sticking to a budget and of course amazing pictures, we know you’ll love! Do you want inspiration for your next trip and to find out how to do it? Then you’ve come to the right place!!
