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.
