We aren't your typical world travelers. Both in our 30's...in 2016 we had a perfect home (with a big yard, pool and mortgage), a corporate job and a start-up business, a dog and no plans to travel extensively.
People ASKED US when we were going to start a family...but we knew it wasn't the right time. we had ALWAYS DREAMT OF TRAVELING AROUND THE WORLD TOGETHER, AND KNEW IT WOULD NEVER BE EASIER THAN RIGHT NOW.
FAST FORWARD TO ONE YEAR LATER...DEREK QUIT HIS CORPORATE JOB, WE SOLD OUR HOUSE, PUT EVERYTHING IN STORAGE AND ARRANGED FOR OUR PARENTS TO TAKE CARE OF BARNEY (THEIR DOG-GRANDSON).
We are off to explore the world IN 2 carry-on SUITCASES AND 2 BACKPACKS. WE AREN'T BACKPACKERS, BUT WE ARE TRAVELING VERY LIGHT.
We travel because we love meeting new people and learning from them.
OUR GOAL WITH THIS SITE IS FOR YOU TO DELIGHT IN OUR ADVENTURES, LEARN from our mistakes, AND SEE THAT YOU TOO CAN TAKE SMALL STEPS TO REACH YOUR BIG DREAMS.
