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.

  • Confession: I wasn't really that excited to go to Pompeii .

Sure, I wanted to see it in a casual sort of way, but I expected it to feel more or less like the hundreds (thousands?) of other ruins that the Romans left scattered around Europe, the Middle East, and northern Africa .

That was... a wildly inaccurate assumption. Pompeii is, hands down, the coolest set of Roman ruins we have ever seen (yes, that includes the Colosseum & Roman Forum), and is one of the most impressive archaeological sites we have seen in the world .

There's no piecing together history and vaguely picturing what once was in Pompeii--because it's all still there. The streets. The homes. The mosaics. The brothels. Everything .

I was completely blown away by Pompeii--it's worth a trip out of the way for. I doubt this will be the last time we visit .

  • The view from the top of the Palazzo Vecchio just may be our new favorite view of Florence. 😍 .

Florence is a small city, but it's definitely not a dull one--we just finished up our sixth visit, and our list of things to do there is still miles long .

From palaces to restaurants to viewpoints to museums to artwork, Florence has it all--no wonder it's always so full of tourists like us. πŸ˜‰ .

Seriously, though, this is our second year in a row to see Florence during late October, and even though we did have a bit of rain this time, I still say it's a great sweet spot during shoulder season where you can avoid the worst of the crowds and still have some amazing Tuscan experiences on nice days .

  • Italy has the prettiest streets. ❀️ .

We loved getting lost (well, not very lost--it's too small for that!) in the hilltop town of Orvieto. It seemed like every turn we took led to an even more beautiful street or shop or overlook .

The more time we spend traveling in Italy, the more places we want to see--our wish list now is longer than on our first visit, and that's not even counting the places we want to go back to for a second or third or tenth time .

Oh, well--we're happy to sign up for a lifelong love affair with this place. 😍 .

  • Hello, Rome! 😍 It's good to be back .

We are absolutely giddy right now, riding an endorphin high that is a combination of being back in Italy during one of THE best months of the year, the opportunity to explore Rome in-depth, and too much espresso .

This city, guys. Where to even start? It's just the best: from its ancient archaeological sites to its delicious food to its fast-paced (for Italy) vibes, Rome is one of our favorite cities in the world (and yes we say that too much, but we mean it this time!) .

How many times have we half-jokingly declared we were moving here this week? ... I can't count that high .

  • South African road trip views ❀️ .

Our track record with road trips kind of sucks this year. Just like in Bulgaria, this one seemed to have plenty go wrong: rainy weather, a broken laptop charger, having to rearrange plans, and the grand finale, getting food poisoning on a vineyard and spending a very unpleasant and unmedicated night dealing with it .

On the plus side, though, it also had some amazing moments: seeing penguins on Boulders Beach, watching a beautiful sunset with a glass of wine (blissfully unaware of what the next few hours would bring), some unexpectedly delicious Thai food, and, of course, views like this one .

The memory of how bad we felt when getting sick hasn't faded quite enough to say the bad was worth the good, but we'll get there eventually. πŸ˜‚ .

  • Hello from the bright and beautiful neighborhood of Bo Kaap! β˜€οΈ .

This is Cape Town's traditional Cape Malay neighborhood, and it is known for its bright and beautiful houses--when street after street looks like this, it's no surprise that the area has gotten a bit #instagramfamous in the past couple of years .

Random tip of the day: Bo Kaap is right by one of our favorite breakfast spots in Cape Town, @clarkescapetown! We definitely lost track of how many times we ate there this month... πŸ˜‹ .

  • Wild smile, messy hair, who cares? Hard to be anything but relaxed next to an ocean like this! πŸŒ… .

I don't think we could ever get tired of Cape Town's coast: the sun, the water, the hikes, the food... I feel like I keep going on this same rant about Cape Town, but this place is just so. damn. cool .

I've lost track of how many times we've discussed returning in the future for a 3-month stint: a whole summer in Cape Town would be quite the treat .

  • Hello, South African wine country! .

The Cape Winelands, including the famous town of Stellenbosch, are less than an hour outside of Cape Town... but with rolling hills, gigantic vineyards, and no coastline in sight, it feels like a whole different world .

We visited two wineries yesterday and while both had serious strong points, the one that included a sampling of different cheeses made on the property was the winner for us... because cheese, obviously .
