Aaron and Tine met in Australia but chose to start a family in Tine's native Copenhagen. While life in Denmark is pleasant, limited work opportunities for expat Aaron have made a lucrative job offer back in Australia too good to pass up. But Australia won't be easy. The young family will have to live way off the grid in Coober Pedy, a remote mining town in the middle of the Australian Outback and 1,000 miles away from any sign of civilization. To make matters worse, daytime temperatures can reach 116 degrees, driving much of the population underground where they live in cave-like homes called dugouts. With two young children in tow, Aaron and Tine will have to consider this unique living if they want to beat the heat and make life comfortable in this isolated outback town.
