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.

  • One of my favorite things about traveling in Rome is its layers. 💕 .

You'd never guess, for example, that behind the stately-yet-subtle facade of the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj sits this gorgeous (and practically empty) art gallery .

This palace is less than a 15-minute walk from the crowds of the Colosseum, and yet it feels worlds apart. It's honestly surprisingly easy to escape the crowds in Rome--you just have to know where to look .

I'm busy writing a guide to offbeat Rome today--as much as we love the world renowned highlights that the city is known for, there is just so much more below the surface that deserves to be explored. ❤️ .

  • Does a Valentine's Day post count if it's 2 days late? 💕😂 .

Truthfully, we've never been big celebrators on Valentine's Day, partially because our dating anniversary fell 2 weeks after it at the end of February! We're coming up on 11 years together at the end of the month, and each one has been better than the last. 😍 .

For this Valentine's Day, we were content with saying another bittersweet goodbye to Rome: we spent the morning exploring the city as long as we possibly could, and then headed to the airport to fly to Dubrovnik .

Weirdly, that's almost exactly how we spent our wedding anniversary last year--saying see you later to Italy and then hopping on a flight elsewhere. Even in our seemingly ever-changing lives, it does appear we can be pretty predictable. 😜 .

  • There's no shortage of stunning corners and half-hidden staircases in Rome. ❤️ .

We are beyond thrilled to be back in one of our favorite cities in the world, and with the help of our good friend Mr. Jetlag, we even made it out of the hotel before dawn to see the city wake up for the first time .

Sadly we only have a few days in Rome on this trip--but we're making the most of them by checking out new-to-us neighborhoods, museums, and historical highlights... and also by taking a food tour through Trastevere, because why not? 🍝🍷🧀 .

  • Can't wait to land in NYC tomorrow! Definitely won't be wearing a sundress on this trip, but still. 😂 .

We visited New York for the first time in 2017--it was a big travel oversight of ours for a long time--but a combination of having amazing friends in town, adoring the city, and it being a great airport hub between the USA and Europe has allowed us to keep going back over and over again .

This will be our sixth trip to New York, and we find ourselves more in love with it every time. ❤️ .

  • It's officially February, which means our time "off" to visit with family is nearly over and we're ready to hit the road again! 😍 .

Coming up this month is a quick trip to NYC, a brief return to Rome, and then a full two weeks in Dubrovnik .

We probably won't visit any new-to-us cities this month, but we're too happy about hitting up old favorites (and experiencing Dubrovnik without summer crowds) to care .

Regardless, we'll definitely hit country number 40 in March, when we're headed to Greece! .

  • Taking a break from our normal Instagram photos to say a very colorful hello from Austin, Texas! 😍 .

We adore this city and have visited more times than we can count (I actually lived there for 3 years as a kid and my dad's family are all 20+ year residents), but it's not every trip we make the time to be tourists here--I must have visited Austin at least 15 times since this mural was installed in 2013, but this was my first time seeing it .

This weekend, I finally held up a long-term bargain with myself to get updated photos of Austin...meaning that I will (hopefully) finally write about this city whose food, people, history, and culture I have cherished for decades .

  • Today, I'd rather be in Strasbourg. 💕 .

Our trip to Alsace was our first taste of France outside of Paris and nearby Versailles, and it was an absolute delight .

Truthfully, we were there at one of the worst times of year--when coats were still required and the flowers weren't blooming yet, but the legendary Christmas markets we're long over... and it was still utterly magnificent .

Just look at those adorable buildings! How could we resist a region that looks like a literal storybook? .

  • We're basically in a constant state of missing Italy. 💕 .

Today, it's beautiful Verona on our minds--we didn't expect this place to become one of our favorite Italian cities practically as soon as we arrived... but it did, and now we dream pretty regularly about getting back .

Maybe a fall 2019 trip? Fingers crossed. 🤞 .
