Meet Rich East, the man who quit his job and sold his house to travel around Australia…with his cat!
A change of scenery
Although Rich liked the company he worked for, after 10 years in the same job he felt like he needed a change.
In a life altering decision, he left his job, sold his house and decided to go on an adventure, travelling around Australia in his van…with his cat Willow of course!
East told The Dodo that Willow loves exploring the places they go. Although they can’t always go into national parks or reserves due to restrictions, East finds places that Willow can happily walk off her lead, under supervision of course.
Judging by the pictures, she loves her little motorised home too!
The benefits of a travel companion
As for East, he says she’s brilliant company, snuggling up on his feet at night.
He adds that travelling with Willow helps him to see things in a new light, “it slows me down and makes me enjoy the moment more. I really love the time we spend in the evenings exploring.”
Whether it's walking, climbing or exploring in the woods, the pair are inseparable. We wish them the happiest of travels together!
East loves showing the world their adventures. On his blog, he writes about why sharing photos and stories of their travels is so important to him.
“[His social media is]…a place where you can forget your problems even for just 3 minutes and breathe the same air we breathe, look out over the same horizon that we see, and know that things are going to be alright.”
Would you drop everything to go travelling with your pet?
