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.

  • A few days ago, we left Italy (and Europe in general) for 2018, and it was bittersweet to say goodbye 💕 .

We ended up spending around 3 months exploring Italy this year, checking out both new destinations and returning to old favorites .

Some of our favorite new Italian cities of the year? Stunning Siena and vivacious Verona--both cities charmed us immediately, and we know we'll revisit them both again many times in the future .

  • We could never get tired of wandering streets like this. #ad .

Over the last 2.5 years, we have been lucky enough to travel to SO many amazing places... but as we've started working on the road, our travels have become both slower and less spontaneous. Typically we don't mind, but it was so much fun to let loose for a few weeks with our @eurail passes and travel wherever our whims took us .

Randomly spending a night in Linz because they are famous for a specific pastry at their Christmas market? Absolutely. Heading to a completely different country because Cesky Krumlov looks too beautiful to ignore? Sure thing. Booking a couple of days in beautiful Bolzano on a whim because we'd like to see it in winter? Why not .

Sure, we were tired by the end... But also, so very giddy and missing plane rides exactly 0%. Charming trains > cramped planes. 🚂 .

  • Rainy days & hidden views in Salzburg ☂️ .

Of all the cities we saw in Austria, Salzburg quickly became our favorite: between its beautiful architecture, amazing natural setting, looming fortress, delightful music, and of course its epic Christmas markets, there was just so much to love .

We'll probably plan a summer trip back before too long--we can't wait to see the rolling hills truly alive (with the Sound of Music). 😜 .

  • Me to Jeremy: "The first year that we have a home again, we're coming back to Salzburg with like 150 Euros in cash and going crazy over the ornaments. I need that ice skates ornament." .

Him: "Yes. Don't we need that hedgehog too?" .

Me: "Obviously." . ... This is why we can't be trusted with a home base at the moment. 😂 .

  • Today was a fairytale, I wore a dress (and 10,000 other layers to avoid freezing to death) ❄️ .

We loved our time in the absolutely adorable village of Cesky Krumlov--so much so that we didn't even mind the temperatures that stubbornly refused to rise above being literally freezing and that we, in an effort to be vaguely spontaneous, neglected to realize until after we arrived that the Christmas Market didn't open until the day we left .

None of that mattered, though, once we saw this view: this is one of the prettiest storybook towns we have ever seen, and several coffees, hot chocolates, and generous servings of hearty Czech food were enough to keep us reasonably cozy underneath our many layers .

  • It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Vienna!❄️🌲☃️ #ad .

Even though we've traveled throughout Europe more than any other region in the world, we've never been here during the holiday season, and we are so excited to finally be changing that .

For the next 2.5 weeks, it's all Christmas markets, all the time. 😁 We're going to be focusing on Austria, but also hitting up Cesky Krumlov in Czechia and our beloved Bolzano in Italy--can't wait to see it all decked out! .

We've partnered with @eurail to make all the bouncing around easy: other than a couple of train rides that we needed to make reservations for, literally all we need to do is go to the train station with our pass, hop on board, and head off to our next winter wonderland. We may even add an extra spontaneous side trip or two along the way... just because we can. 😍 .

  • Happy Thanksgiving from Budapest! 🦃❤️🦃 .

This is our first Thanksgiving spent away from family, and it's a bit strange to spend the day without loved ones, Parker House rolls, and stuffing .

Budapest is treating us well, though: while the weather has been mostly cold and rainy, we've been loving the chance to indulge in all kinds of Hungarian food, which is absolutely suited for cold weather .

We also took some time off from tourism to  celebrate Thanksgiving in our own way--by going to see the Crimes of Grindelwald here in Budapest! It may not have been a traditional Thanksgiving, but we're still stuffed from all the 🍿and 🍫 .

  • #sponsored Naples in November: it may not exactly be the best time to head out to the nearby Amalfi Coast, and I did feel a bit weird enjoying coastal views in jeans instead of a sundress... but there's no better time to enjoy pizza in Naples .

We teamed up with @Expedia to explore the best pizza that Naples has to offer, and 5 pizzerias later, we are delighted with our choices (link in bio) and also don't want to see another pizza again for weeks .

Cozy pizzerias, traditional pizzerias, modern pizzerias, experimental pizzerias... Naples has it all, and every last bite is a delicious, doughy treat for the tastebuds .
