When I was growing up, I always wanted to be one of those people who traveled all the time. My family did some cool trips, like visiting our family in South Carolina, vacationing in Disney and strolling down the streets of San Diego in feathered boas. But that barely satiated my need to see the world.
Then I met Alix, who seemed like she traveled ALL. THE. TIME. Needless to say, I was jealous. Lucky for me, we both now share in the adventure of travel. Since college, I've traveled more than I probably did if you add up all my trips growing up. I've gotten to go on a rock tour to Cardiff, swam with sharks in Punta Cana, climbed glaciers in Iceland and jet-set for a week-long California tour.
At the same time, Alix has made it her hobby to hit up Vegas on what seems like a monthly basis, led club crawls in Canada, picked grapes during a champagne harvest in France and pet wild horses in Iceland.
You can say we've caught the travel bug, and we welcome you to join us on our adventures going forward. Every week, we'll each feature some of our favorite stories from our excursions, to tips about how to travel on a budget and where you should be heading next.
While we're working on our first posts for you, we want to say thank you in advance for your support! Feel free to leave comments with your commentary, and we hope to see you back here every week. Thanks for letting us into your lives and traveling with us!
