AFTER spending their first days as a married couple on the road Jean and Bevan Kubler have loved travelling.
The couple, who celebrated their 50th anniversary on Wednesday, spent their honeymoon "on the road from Cairns to Ipswich".
They were married in Cairns, where Jean's family is from, in 1963, but moved to Ipswich just before the wedding.
"We met in Cairns, where Jean was nursing, and I was briefly working a job up there," Mr Kubler said.
"We were married up there a few years after we met and we spent our honeymoon on the road from Cairns to Ipswich. We were married on the second and I think we were back in Ipswich on the fourth."
With extended family scattered across Queensland, the pair have travelled across the country however they're looking forward to spending more time seeing Australia.
"We travel up north to see Jean's family almost every year," Mr Kubler said.
"We're hoping to see more of Australia. We've been too busy trying to make a living after we started with nothing.
Some of my in-laws even gave me a bit of money for petrol to get back to Ipswich after the wedding, so we really did start with nothing.

According to the couple, friendship and trust have been the two important parts of their 50 year marriage.
"We've always remained friends and we do everything together," he said.
"We don't have any problems. I think that's the secret."
