If you haven't yet seen us talk about our 6 month update on YouTube - with a guest appearance - then you can watch it below.
If you follow our Facebook page you will notice that we have been posting a lot of photos of the stunning Flinders Ranges in South Aus. We have been captivated by this great land and we can fairly say that it's the most amazing place we have been - thus far! Where we are staying -Beltana Station Homestead - It's beyond limits of Adelaide ... 6 hours to be exact. The closest major town is 2 hours away and the space here feels incredible! There is no ocean, infact not much water at all except for some creek beds and natural springs - few and far between. There is 1/2 million acres with thousand of sheep, cattle, goats and alpacas. This place was NOT where we thought we would want to stay for very long... I mean what for? We couldn't figure out why residents here loved it so much... The land is barren... Yes the ranges are beautiful but beauty can be found anywhere right?!
This land has captured our hearts and has drawn us to a place which we did not expect to stay a long time!
Always expect the unexpected if anything at all!
At first we resisted the thought of staying on the station for a while. We were doing a work exchange for accommodation (they are willing like that!) and Sam was enjoying it while I was pluggin away at my biz! It was harmonious and we were happy to be here. As a few weeks went on and Darwin was on our minds for the winter we were trying to make it happen. We tried to plan our trip up there giving ourselves 4 weeks. We thought that it would be better to spend the winter in a warmer place... That things would be much more manageable. We TRIED to plan but blocks would come up like money, travel time and working in with my building business plans, we needed new tires for the rig, we needed more fuel cams, we needed more supplies... Things just kept coming up! When we finally gave into the fact that we were NOT that inspired to go we said the words (which were hard to say by the way as we felt we had something to live up to) "why don't we stay here for a few months!?" it's like something lit in our hearts even though we felt that this was against who we were as the Freedom Family! But thinking and feeling through it some more we realised that "yes! We are the freedom family! And we live from that place in our hearts where we can CHOOSE what and where we want we want to be... There are no limits and we should always expected the unexpected!" this is what changed for us... This allowed our minds to be even more open to new opportunities and magical possibilities!
Since Making the quote above ring in our hearts and minds we have had the opportunity for Sam to live out one of his dreams of working as a station hand! His working full time here on the station -which can be a little challenging for me trying to run a biz too - but we make it work for us!
About 2 months ago I was dreaming of some office space to get some of my important work done. I was getting frustrated that I had lack of Rhythm and focus time... I was - wait for it..... Dreaming of living in a house again!!!! Feeling into it more it was not a house I wanted but a space to feel creative and to have some focus time.. That's what was really important! Being here at Beltana has created that space for me. I feel creative and more determined than when we were moving every 1 to 2 weeks! I've got a business plan in place to create eBooks, eCourses, personalised coaching program's, they are all coming into fruit while being here as I have that extra time as space to feel 'at home' and just get my shit done!
Soooo it seems we are going to be here for a while :-)))))) which feels VERY good to us! We are thinking close to the end of year to make away across to Vic again and get on the 'Spirit of Tasmania' and spend some of the summer in Tasmania - which is just a little bit dreamy for us ;-) since we wanted to do it this year. All in good timing! And you know what.... We are NOT in any rush - this is a lifestyle for us! And if you're sitting there reading this thinking "I would give anything for that kind of lifestyle" then I can tell you that you're in the right place! The unique thing about us - the freedom family - is that we are so passionate about our lives that amongst all our passion is our desire to help people like you who also want freedom! Over the next few weeks we will be re-vamping our Freedom Family break- free program in a way that will make it absolutely life changing for you and your family as well as that we want to offer a simple eBook that will help ignite your fire and get your arse in your freedom travel life : eBook will be on 'How to make money while you travel' offering really practical steps to take!
