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!

We can inspire you to plan your next trip! Find out where to go and what to do!
Perfect for couples.
