Join Us On Our Journey
We quit our jobs, sold our belongings, and left our home in the USA to travel the world. We’ve created this blog as a space to share our travel stories and help others who aspire to travel. We keep a blog, share photographs, and update our route regularly.
With only our packs on our backs, we’ve traveled to over 40 countries in 5 continents. We’ve volunteered along the way helping to rebuilding after an earthquake in Nepal, getting our hands dirty on an organic vineyard in Argentina, and teaching English to a family in Vietnam. We love to hike and adventure; we’ve gone caving in Borneo, hiking to Everest Base Camp, and road-tripping around Belgium to different Trappist breweries. We’ve slept on top of a chicken coup, onboard a houseboat, in a tent at the base of the Andes Mountains, in tea houses in the Himalayas, on Indian sleeper trains and under the stars of the Thar desert. We celebrated our recent honeymoon with a 100 day road trip across the US and are now traveling internationally once again. Join us on our journey as we strap on our packs and ditch the map.
