    We'll have work to go, thanks

    Two young Auckland graduates have tossed in their tedious 50-hour-a-week desk jobs and hit the road expanding their new international business from a campervan.

    In Queenstown yesterday, Jason Flaherty and Jen Ranada, both 23, said their new dream lifestyle, operating their business on the move, began two years ago.

    "We wanted to be able to wake up in the morning and choose whether we want to work or spend a relaxing day at the beach," Ms Ranada, a Unitex Diploma of Architecture graduate, said.
    She had been made redundant from jobs four times.
    "I just didn't enjoy sitting in my box and being told what to do all day," she said.

    Mr Flaherty, who had a software engineering degree from Auckland University, said halfway through his studies he realised "this was no way to get ahead, working long hours for money".
    He decided he did not want to get paid a high wage in exchange for his life. So he read books and attended seminars before realising he needed to start his own business.
