If you’ve browsed our site for a bit and find yourself with some nagging questions, you’ve come to the right place.

Here are the most common questions people ask…

How did you two meet?

We actually met in high school. It’s a pretty cute story, get the mushy details here in ourhthvip华体会 page.

When did you start traveling?

Unlike many other travel bloggers out there, neither of us grew up traveling internationally. For us, it came a bit later in life.

Our entire world changed during our senior year of college when westudied abroad for a semester. We boarded an international flight – a first for both of us – and landed in the cobblestoned streets of Florence, Italy. We spent the next four months traveling around Europe and discovering a world we never knew existed. And we’ve been hooked ever since.

How would you describe your travel style?

We seek adventure and off-the-beaten-path experiences. We travel on a budget, but are happy to splurge on once-in-a-lifetime activities, like ahot air balloon ride in Turkeyor ascuba diving liveaboard in Thailand.

And whether our travels take us to small villages or huge cities, we always try our best to travel responsibly.

How many countries have you traveled to?

While counting countries has never been the main goal for us, we know some people are curious about where in the world we have traveled.

To date, we’ve traveled to 4 continents and visited 47 countries. We feel very privileged to have been able to take so much time to dedicate to traveling.

How do you afford to travel so much?

This is the question we get asked most often.

No, we don’t come from rich families. No, we’re not drug smugglers, nor did we win the lottery.

We have earned every single penny that has funded our travels. We actually have a buttload (pardon my nerdy curse word!) of student loans that we have been paying since we graduated from university. Yes, even while traveling.

I won’t ramble on here much longer other than to say that we never could have afforded all this traveling withoutteaching English in South Korea. In just one year we saved $44,000 together (not just earned, SAVED), which gave us a jump-start on traveling and putting time into growing this blog.

Do you make money on this blog?

Yes. We have been blogging full-time since October 2017, and oh my goodness, has it been a crazy. We have learned so much about the world of blogging (and about ourselves). It has been so much work and very difficult at times, but now we can’t imagine ourselves doing anything else.

It has given us a sense of freedom that we never thought was possible, and allows us to work from places like cute cafes inChiang Mai, Thailandor near thebeach in Bali. Plus, we get to work together on building something we love and believe in.

Our roles are changing and overlapping all the time, but we do have very different skill sets (aka journalist vs. engineer), so we work really well as a team.

Katie= content creating queen!

She’s typically the one writing the articles, taking and editing the photos and managing social media.

Ben= behind-the-scenes extraordinaire

He’s the SEO expert, the one looking at analytics, contact-point for companies, and the one handling all things technical having to do with the website.

What was it like living in a campervan for 3 months?

Oh my gosh, it was the best 3 months of our lives. Yes, seriously. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t seriously uncomfortable times, like getting woken up at 5 a.m. by a park ranger who was about to release snakes and lizards into the vicinity for a “raptor avoidance training”.

Yes, that’s a true story.
