Who Are We?

We're Krystal & Eric and we're so happy you're here.

We had been dating just over a year when we took our first trip together back in 2018. Where did we go? The desert...to get married! A week later we took off again, this time to get our passports stamped for a tropical honeymoon. We've been obsessed with travel (and spontaneous decisions) ever since and decided to start sharing our love for adventure with the world.

Everything changed for us in 2020. Just as we kicked off our YouTube channel, countries started closing borders due to COVID-19. Suddenly, our plans to travel across Europe were cancelled and we were left isolating at home in our tiny New Jersey apartment. We spent about 4 months working from home when we decided going back to our corporate jobs wasn't an option for us. We decided to prioritize our dreams and go fully location independent. Career shifts, going location indie, and starting a travel blog all in the midst of a global pandemic? What can we say, we love a challenge!

 

Nothing about our story is typical, and we don't plan on becoming "normal" anytime soon. Our philosophy is to make every day an adventure, whether that means international jet-setting or just hanging out in our hometowns. We inspire each other to live life to the fullest and experience as much as we can - and we want to do the same for you!

We also love making new friends, so be sure to reach out & introduce yourself if you enjoy our stories!

The planner & travel hacker

A project manager at heart, I'm only happy when details are in a spreadsheet. This extreme and sometimes annoying ;) attention to detail makes me great at travel planning and finding the best deal.

Part time video editor and full time goofball.  I'm practically allergic to project management but am always workshopping our next big adventure!
