Who are we?

We are Lauren & Benjamin, but if you have the link to this blog, you probably know that 🙂 Indeed, this blog doesn’t appear directly in the results of a standard Google search – it looks like one of us knows something about cybersecurity and privacy … !

Travel and mountain lovers, we chose to leave our jobs and life in Brussels to wander around the world for a few months.We wanted to discover new landscapes and cultures, but also take the opportunity to do some volunteering, and learn more about permaculture & eco-building techniques for possible future projects.

Of course, we had no idea that Covid-19 was going to happen and our plans were completely turned upside down! So this blog is not about a world tour at all… we’ll let you discover the rest by yourself 🙂

And by the way, why cazdal-austral? A clever combination of our surnames and the hemisphere we were supposed to discover! We had several name ideas in mind but we had our friends vote on them at our going-away party and this one won 🙂 It was found by our friend Julie.
