Who Created Travelling Tradies?
Created for Tradies, by a Tradie!
It all started…
After working in the industry for nearly a decade, (Plumber by trade) I was earning good money, but could never seem to fill the void inside myself. Always searching for something more I suffered severe depression and after 2 fellow tradies on job sites I was working on took their own lives in the space of a week, it was the straw that broke the camels back for me. I spontaneously booked a one-way ticket to South America where I disappeared for nearly 3 years.
Whilst overseas to ensure I didn't have to return home sooner than I wanted, I would approach hotels and hostels and offer my skills to fix and build anything and everything in exchange for food, accommodation tours, experiences, drinks, local insight, guidance and knowledge. On returning home I realised other Tradies wanted to do the same and that's how Travelling Tradies was born.
