Man Quits Job And Takes His Cat on Amazing Adventures Around Australia

Meanwhile in Australia...

In the world down under, Richard East from Tasmania, Australia is fast becoming the object of every cat lover’s dreams after saying goodbye to the corporate life once and for all, selling his home and making the decision to travel across Australia armed with little more than his VW and a wonderful travelling companion – his black cat, Willow.

Together they make an adorable duo, living a simple but fulfilling life on the road. And boy have they clocked some serious mileage, travelling to some of Australia’s biggest and best icons like the Great Barrier Reef, the Big Banana, and the Whitsunday Islands. They often find other cat owners on the road “tucked into bed in camper vans across Australia.”

Who said cats don’t make the best travel companions?
