About us

Hi there! A little bit about us. We are Jasper and Tessa and we created this growing community called Backpacks & Jetlags. This year couldn't have started any better as we were finally about to start a new adventure.

Currently we have travelled a bit more south and arrived in Port Macquarie. In order to complete our 88 days of farm work for our visa, we found an avocado farm nearby. Guess we get the best of everything, sunshine, a beautiful environment and delicious fruit to enjoy everyday.
