Moving Out of Our Apartment
Now that we have the process started with the government, we went ahead and moved out of our apartment, our first home together. It was a two bedroom apartment that we had filled and painted, so there was a lot of cleaning, painting, and purging to be done before we could leave. In order to make it a quicker, less stressful moving process once the actual flights are booked, we decided to downsize A LOT!
For the short time that we’re still in Oregon, we’ve moved in with a nice couple that has been family friends of Taylor’s for generations. We sold most of our furniture, gave a lot of household items away, and we’re now in one bedroom with a shared bath at their house. While we miss our privacy a little, it’s been a great move to save money and take this move one step at a time. It won’t be long and we’ll be moving again!
In 2016, our founder, Bailey Smith, finagled her way into moving abroad with her husband. In their off time, they were able to travel all around Europe. Many of Bailey's travel experiences during those two years have shaped Indie Travel Design into what it is today. Follow along with their story of negotiating jobs, applying for visas, and living in Germany.
