Dustin Hollick and Rhian Slapp leave home to learn the secrets of a well-balanced life by reconnecting with nature, a feeling lost with the advent of modern convenience.
How can we consume less, live our dreams, meet new friends, adventure more—and have a bloody good time doing it? Dustin Hollick and Rhian Slapp have the survival skills of well-trained house pets—on a two-week lap around Tasmania with no cash, no car, no technology and just 10 personal items each. These scruffy surfers leave home to learn the secrets of a well-balanced life and aim to get back a connection with nature that has been lost with the advent of modern convenience. They reconnect with nature, but it is the goodwill and generosity of the quirky humans that inhabit this remote island that makes their journey and survival possible.
