A couple who left behind successful careers
to travel the world and post enviable
pictures online at every destination, have
revealed they are funding their trip by
Chanel Cartell and Stevo Dirnberger, from
Johannesburg, have built up a following of
more than 68,000 for their
‘howfarfromhome’ Instagram account.
The page features snaps of the couple in
various locations, holding up signs showing
how far away they have travelled from
home, by the kilometre.
Both 29, the pair left their director
positions in advertising and branding to
embark upon their travels six months ago,
after feeling fed up with the status quo and
wanting to challenge their “creative minds”.
However, despite their stream of beautiful
pictures, the couple took to social media to
dispel perceptions of luxurious travel
blogging, insisting their trip hasn’t all been
yoga on the beach, sailing in the Med or
playing with husky puppies in the Arctic
