Introducing

who are small and tall?

In early 2015, three Dutch surfing nomads (@dboontje & @guchtere) went on a roadtrip with their windsurfing gear, a tent and a sense of adventure...

set up gear

In early 2015, on the other side of the world, an Australian girl left her home in Tasmania to take on the world solo. Taking a boat from Denmark to Iceland without any plan seemed both adventurous and romantic (and nothing she couldn't handle with her summer jacket)...

Thankfully, somewhere between Denmark and Iceland, these two very different trips crossed paths. Despite different hemispheres, languages, cultures and heights, a tall-Dutch-wind surfing-adventurer saved a small-hitchhiking-summer jacket wearing-Tasmanian from a -12 degrees first night.

small was rescued by tall and, from that moment, the real adventure began

small:

Katie: 26yo Australian expat living in The Netherlands; a designer, cook, gardener and avid explorer.

tall:

Toby: 29yo hardworking kid; a master renovator, ex-swimmer but still half fish, lover of everything active and motorbike fanatic.

Together we explore the world both on and off the motorbike, renovate our 100yo house and navigate an international relationship and life together.

We hope to post about the adventures we have around the world as well as closer to home. Meaning traveling, motorbiking, outdoor sports, renovating, designing, gardening and cooking are some of the things you can expect to see from us here on steemit. Katie has kept a space online for her travels that she uses to record her adventures and share her memories with family https://purposefulserendipity.wordpress.com. We would love any advice you have for how to get started in these topics so please get in touch!

We're excited to see all the great content here on steemit and are very happy to be new members of this community!

a note from tall:

Must admit...I'm pretty into @steemmonsters already. It kept me up til 2am the first night - got any tips?!?


Thank you for taking the time to read our post. We'd love it if you left a comment, resteem and upvoted this post!

Hey hey Small & Tall! Glad to see you arrive on Steem! That's a great history to read, to meet like that must be really special <3

Steemmonsters is mostly a matter of putting a Tank in the front, a ranged attacker in the back, and a bit of luck your opponent doesn't have better cards than you :P I made it do Diamond II last season, and since I meet up better and better opponents I won't make it much further without buying many more cards ;-)

Good luck on Steem and hope to see you around a lot! Cheers!

·

Thanks for the welcoming words! It was a pretty amazing way to meet each other, what are the odds hey? @dboontje, @guchtere and I are quite competitive so I expect we'll have a lot of fun with steemmonsters :D Looking forward to seeing more of you on here!

Hi! Thanks for the tips. We will definitely take a look at your posts to see a glimpse of India - we're hoping to head to that part of the world later in the year :D I have made a switch to photographing with my iphone rather than camera in the last few years - I find it so much less invasive and touristy than carrying a bulky camera. See you around!
