Hey there! We’re Dan and Lindsay McKenzie.
We’re just an ordinary couple living an extraordinary life…
We’re full-time adventurers, who are crazy about life and each other. Our goal is to share tips and resources that have helped us follow our detour in hopes that they help you follow yours!
Follow Your Detour is about creating your own path in life.

If where you’re at isn’t where you want to be then it’s time to follow your detour…
Finding the courage to make big changes in our lives and chase our dreams can be the hardest part. Here’s everything you need to finally take action!
We love sharing about all the different aspects of our lifestyle. From marriage and budgeting as a couple, to living life on the road, and how we fund our travels.
We can inspire you to plan your next trip! Find out where to go and what to do!
Perfect for couples.
