TL;DR (too long, didn't read) is our monthly recap in case you'd like to know what we've been up to. And if you don't care, too bad. We're tellin' ya anyway.
After spending much of December and January with family and friends, February 2020 saw us back at work, harder than ever. We achieved the long-awaited soft-launch of foreverbreak.com, and you can now read through our helpful travel guides and travel tips, handy lifestyle advice, tech and product recommendations, and much more.
Since we only have 4 hands between us, there's a limit to how much typing we can physically do in 24-hours (although we do like to push that limit!). We decided to focus on travel and have soft-launched with in-depth travel guides for Thailand and Malaysia as well as tips on what to do and where to stay in Western Australia and Bali.
It's impossible to open a newspaper, turn on the TV, or scroll through CNN online without seeing the global impact of COVID-19 (the coronavirus). Thousands of would-be-tourists have canceled or postponed travel plans, and the tourism industry is reeling.
Flight and accommodation bookings can be snatched up at ridiculously low prices for those brave enough to travel. Check out our pages on Bali, Malaysia, or Thailand if you're planning to take advantage of these discounts.

The 2020 Academy Awards saw Joaquin Phoenix named the best actor for his compelling role in Joker. Instead of the traditional 'thank you' speeches actors chime on the Oscars stage, Phoenix spoke from his heart, using the opportunity to talk about issues that really matter, to be a "voice for the voiceless." Humbly, he listed several issues humanity is facing collectively, acknowledging how disconnected we've become from the natural world and promoting shared love and commonality.
These issues reflect the core values of Forever Break, and we couldn't agree more with Joaquin Phoenix. Watch or read the full speech here.
