It all started with a pretty serious case of AdventureAche.



In order to combine a love of travel with our passion for design and photography we decided we needed to come up with an alternative plan for our life.

By simplifying our lifestyles and ensuring we are meeting what we essentially need, we free up space in our minds and lives to discover what we want. By doing what we want we are inspired to create, innovate and work.


 Watch a short talk Laura did about our plan below . . . 




Adventure Ache




1.  An urge to travel, experience new things.

2.  A feeling of fear or excitement in the pit of your stomach at the prospect of embracing uncertainty. 

3 . The act of scrolling through online photos and longing to be in them.


‘This Instagram profile is giving me a serious case of adventure ache.’

‘They are gripped by adventure ache and firmly believe that the world is their oyster.’


Wanderlust, unsettled, itchy feet, restlessness


Stagnant, bored, latency, discontentment, dead.




We document our travels on Instagram @yellowmatilda and we'd love to see what your adventures look like so be sure to tag #Adventureache.
