Hi, we’re Jeremy & Kate!

We are full-time travelers dedicated to following our passions to wherever sounds funky or fun, dazzling or delicious, wild or whimsical, ridiculous or romantic.

Our lives haven’t always looked like this, though: in our decade together, we collected a couple of degrees, logged too many hours in office jobs, bought a house, sold a house, and much more before eventually making our way from having never left the USA to being full-time travelers.

More than two years after leaving on that first one-way ticket, we’re still all about working together to explore this incredibly beautiful world that we are lucky enough to live in.

We’re particularly crazy about colorful cities, majestic mountains, beautiful beaches, delicious delicacies, and each other.

Join us as we continue to live out our escape clause from the predictable life that we once laid out for ourselves, wherever the wind takes us.

  • You & me & a cottage by the sea 😍 .

We loved our little beach cottage in Vilanculos! Everyday, we sat in the hammock and admired the gently rustling palm trees, the bright turquoise water, the boats going by, and, of course, the warm glow of the sunset .

It was incredibly relaxing to have a little home all to ourselves for awhile... Even if we did have our share of mishaps in it. Click the link in bio to hear all about what we got up to in Vilanculos (including how Jeremy got broken out of the bathroom with a sledgehammer πŸ˜‚) .

  • Being on this uninhabited island in Vilanculos felt like being on another planet .

There was no other life as far as we could see. The wind blocked out any noise. The sand pelted us constantly, ranging from feeling like a slight caress when the wind was quiet to a painful slap when it picked up. And these sandbars? They seemed to go on forever .

Though we visited the island with a group, most people didn't choose to hike over the enormous dunes, so we ended up with this view all to ourselves for an hour .

It's times like this that make us remember how truly gigantic the world is, and how tiny we are inside of it .

  • There are so many sailboats in Vilanculos .

Because of the tides and the dozens of sandbars around Vilanculos, the sailboats are often sitting right on the sand in the morning... But by afternoon, they're bobbing happily in the water again .

Most of these boats are used in the fishing industry, but a few are used for tourism as well .

  • Empty beaches & wide open skies, as far as the eye can see. 😍 .

We really didn't know what to expect from Tofo, Mozambique--would we like it? Would we feel safe? Would it be boring? Most importantly, would it be worth the 14-hour ride to get there? .

What we found quickly had us charmed: we practically had several miles of beach all to ourselves. The town consisted of a few sand streets. A humpback whale migration was in town that kept us endlessly entertained. Jeremy saw a manta ray while diving. The wifi was weak, but the cell data was strong .

There were downsides, too, like battling nausea from the anti-malarial medication and some annoyingly persistent touts--but we're glad we came... and we're glad we ate a week's worth of meals overlooking this beach .

  • New month, new continent (on Instagram, anyway--our real life selves touched down in Africa in August!) .

We had exactly 20 hours to make the most of Cairo, and for such a short trip, I would say we definitely succeeded: we managed to visit Giza, the Egyptian Museum, and a beautiful bazaar all in one day--and yes, we totally felt like falling over with exhaustion by the end of it .

It was a dream come true to finally stand in awe of the pyramids--our childhood selves would be thrilled to know that we made it here .

  • Can't resist posting just one more photo from Paris! We adored our August trip to the city .

Paris in August doesn't have the best reputation, so when we arrived to sunny days, flowering gardens, and lines easily surpassed with inexpensive skip-the-line tickets, we were in heaven .

I wrote all about it (link in bio), and we are already dreaming of our next trip back to the City of Lights .

For now, though, it's all about our current destination--southern Africa! 😍🌍😍 .

  • Before visiting Paris in August, we were a little concerned about it: there is plenty of advice out there that says Paris in August is a hot, sticky mess full of long lines at tourist attractions and closed restaurants elsewhere .

And sure, the lines at the Arc de Triomphe were insane (hello, skip the line tickets!) and just about every street had at least a couple of restaurants boasting signs saying "Be back in September!", but literally none of that mattered to us .

Why? Because the sun was shining, the flowers were blooming, the cafes were hopping, and hello, it's Paris! Paris in the summer! How could we not adore it? .

We love this city more than ever, and have tons of photos to share... After all, it's practically a travel crime to put away the camera when there's a blue sky behind the Eiffel. πŸ˜‚ .

  • Oh, Paris, it is so good to be back. 😍 .

There's something about this city that keeps us moving a mile a minute. In most destinations these days, our average is about 3 hours of sightseeing a day, but in Paris, we are always desperate for more, more, more .

It keeps us busy (and ensures we have plenty of work to catch up on when we leave), but somehow our list of things we want to do in Paris never seems to get shorter .

This is a city that will take a lifetime to conquer, and it's a challenge we consider well worth the effort .
