Traveling is our life!! With this website we want to share our raw and honest encounters of life on the road. We aspire to inspire others to live a minimalistic lifestyle and to save for experiences that matter, not stuff. Volunteering with Workaway has allowed us to travel longer and have more meaningful interactions with each new country we visit. Thanks for following along and we hope you enjoy our stories as we continue our journey around the world!!!
