Hi, weโ€™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.

More than 3 years after leaving the USA on that first one-way ticket, weโ€™re still all about working together to explore this magnificent world that we are lucky enough to live in.

These days, you can usually find us in Europe--especially in our beloved Italy--but our curiosity, love of new experiences, and appetite for diverse cuisines regularly takes us all over the globe.

Our mission at Our Escape Clause is simple: to inspire others to explore the world through well-researched and experience-driven articles.

We want to make your trip planning easier and our favorite destinations irresistible, and use this space to share detailed itineraries, travel guides, and occasional personal stories to further those goals.

Join us as we continue to live out our escape clause from the predictable life that we once laid out for ourselves, one destination (and meal) at a time.

  • Tiny, peaceful, and utterly adorable: Goult may just be our favorite village in the Luberon Valley! โค๏ธ .  Sure, it may not have the fame of Gordes or the views of Bonnieux, but there's something magic about a Provencal village covered in an abundance of pastel-colored shutters and very few crowds .  Writing about Provence this week has made me miss France something fierce. ๐Ÿฅ–๐Ÿท๐Ÿง€ .

  • South Beach, palm trees, and sunshine: the essential ingredients to any perfect trip to Miami. ๐Ÿ–๏ธ .  I know we say this too much, but we fell HARD for this vibrant, international city. Everything from the food scene to the architecture to the weather (even in humid June!) drew us in, and we found ourselves with ear-to-ear smiles during our entire visit .  I couldn't wait to write about it, either--our incredibly detailed suggested Miami itinerary is up on the blog! Link in bio as always .  Miami, you'll see us again soon. โค๏ธ .

  • Could never get tired of this view. ๐Ÿ˜ .  The Faraglioni rocks are one of the most iconic sights in all of Capri, and though you can't see the famous tunnel from this angle, that's them in the top right corner .  On our boat tour around the island, we drove right through the Faraglioni--legend says that couples who kiss as they pass through the them will stay together forever. ๐Ÿ’• .

  • There's just something about Capri. โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ’™โ˜€๏ธ .  I've wanted to visit this little island near the Amalfi Coast for years, and I have to say, the views from Capri on a sunny day might just be one of the most remarkable  sights in all of Italy--and there's definitely some stiff competition .  This photo of Via Krupp and the sparkling Mediterranean Sea was taken from the Garden of Augustus--and despite Capri's (deserved) reputation as a pricey island, the garden only costs 1 Euro to enter! .

  • Happy wedding anniversary to us!!! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• .  It's hard to believe that today marks six years since we said I do--and that tomorrow marks six years since our first passport stamp! .  2191 days and 43 countries later, we're still just getting started on this lifelong adventure. ๐Ÿ˜ .  Here's to year seven & beyond. ๐Ÿฅ‚ .

  • Gondolas for days. ๐Ÿ˜ .  As pretty as these gondolas are, though, this spot near Piazza San Marco has to be one of the worst places to actually get on one! The gondolas that leave from here end up following each other all in a line through the same canals--you might as well be riding It's a Small World at Disney .  Head out a little further, though--maybe even all the way to a quiet corner of Castello or Dorsoduro--and you just may get lucky enough to have a few minutes as the only gondola in a canal .  This week I published our entire suggested Venice itinerary--dozens of tips like this included. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We love this city and want everyone else to too--but there are definitely a lot of things to know before you go .  Link in bio! ๐Ÿ˜Š .

  • Beautiful Burano. ๐Ÿ’œโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š .  This insanely colorful fisherman's village is just 45 minutes away from the center of Venice by ferry, making it the perfect day trip .  Technically made up of 4 islands (you can use footbridges to get between them), the entire village looks remarkably like this photo .  The skeptical part of me showed up here expecting 1-2 brightly colored streets and a normal-but-charming village outside of those areas... but no .  Color explodes everywhere in Burano .

  • Fairytale towers in Venice. โค๏ธ .  But that being said, the tower that I'm looking at in this photo (San Marco Campanile) has a far better view of Venice than the one I'm standing in (Scala Contarini del Bovolo). IMO, of course. You can't even see any water from this spot! .  I'm still glad we went, though. Curiosity + this photo + not dealing with the crowds on top of (not to mention lines to get into) San Marco Campanile again + the joy of wandering through Venice's tiny back streets trying to find this tower all made it worth it .  What do you think--would you climb this tower in Venice knowing that it doesn't have the best view in the city? .
