We are Bevan and Jill, a husband and wife team originally from South Africa but currently living in Taiwan. Growing up in South Africa almost certainly means a life of outdoor activity, and that was definitely the case for both of us. From hiking to surfing to weekends in game reserves, our lives revolved around the outdoors, and it was fantastic!
