You know that feeling of driving home from a long workday and you’re thinking, “What if I just kept going? What if I don’t go back?” We’ve always had that urge- to grab a backpack, cram in the essentials, and jet (or drive) off to nowhere in particular- never to return. There comes a point when you have to stop asking the question and start living the life you crave. Even if it’s only for a week(end) at a time to start out.

It wasn’t until a year ago that we acted on our passion for travel and each other. We have been best friends for over ten years, so traveling the world together was discussed more times than can be counted. Finally, we stopped talking about our dreams and started making them happen. Taking sayings like, “there’s no time like the present” or “life is either a daring adventure or nothing” to heart and remembering that tomorrow, or even today, could be the last is all the motivation we needed to get off the couch or from behind the desk and start to live. What I’m trying to say is that as you’re taking your last breath, you don’t want to have the regret of never doing the things you always said you wanted to.

We aren’t wealthy, we’ve never had money and all the material “richness” that the world offers, but we make travel a priority. Besides food and gas and bills, all we spend our money on is travel. When it’s our time to go we won’t be worried about those things that have never truly mattered. We will feel happiness and satisfaction, because we made our dreams come true. We traveled, we grew, we met new people, explored new cultures, we lived the life we love. Hopefully, this blog can give you the inspiration and tips to help you live your happy existence.
