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.

  • It's so rare that we end up with an amazing view from our hotel rooms--as much as we enjoy a great view, we're usually not willing to pay extra to have one where we sleep .

That's not a problem in San Marino, though: the whole place is made up of incredible views! It didn't cost us a penny extra to wake up to this view, and it was quite the luxury to have .

We loved getting to look out at this beautiful countryside whenever we wanted, and this terrace alone was enough to convince us that we made the right choice by booking one night in San Marino, rather than simply trying to see the country on a day trip .

  • San Marino looked like a fairytale .

We didn't have incredibly high expectations for the microstate: we had heard mixed reviews about visiting, but ultimately couldn't resist the call of a tiny nation so close to where we are staying in Bologna .

One train, one stop in the beach town of Rimini, and one winding bus ride after leaving Bologna, we found ourselves dropped off in the fifth smallest country in the world, and we were immediately smitten .

Despite its small size, San Marino has to be one of the most picturesque countries we have ever visited: everywhere you look, you'll have sweeping views of rolling countryside, quaint villages, and castles .

How could we not love somewhere like that?! .

  • The city of Bologna has three nicknames: La Grassa, La Dotta, and La Rossa... or in English, The Fat (for its delicious food), The Educated (for its historical and prestigious university), and The Red (for its color) .

La Rossa is especially evident in this view from San Petronio's Terrace--just look at those rooftops! .

And no, your eyes don't deceive you: those towers are leaning .

The taller Asinelli Tower is popular to climb (and mildly terrifying for those of us scared of heights, FYI), and the shorter Garisenda Tower holds the record for the tower in Italy with the sharpest lean, beating out the famous Pisa. Garisenda doesn't hand "leaning tower of pizza" jokes to US elementary school students, though, so no wonder it's less known πŸ˜‚ .

  • Florence, we're a little bit obsessed with you. 😍 .

Our third visit to the Cradle of the Renaissance certainly won't be our last: there's still so much we need to uncover in this many-layered gem of a city, not to mention about a million and one things we need to do again (like sample gelato... lots of gelato) .

This view from the Piazzale Michelangelo is one of the most famous in the city--even on a hazy day, we still loved getting a chance to admire Florence from above .

  • Tuscany is in bloom! 🌷🌷🌷 .

We never ended up making it to the Boboli Gardens during our month spent in Florence last fall, figuring it was better to go during a spring visit instead... and we're glad we waited .

This portion of the garden is covered in roses and looks out onto the Tuscan countryside beyond Florence--it is, quite simply, a view that belongs in a Renaissance painting. That being said, even the best painter in the world wouldn't be able to communicate how amazing the blooming garden smelled! .

  • We ❀️ Bologna--the colorful buildings, the canals, the museums, the quirky art students, the quiet streets, the graffiti, and all .

Here is yet another city we can point to and say "Yes, that--that right there is why Italy is one of our favorite countries in the world" .

We have been here about 10 days now and still haven't crossed most of the major tourist attractions off our list, but that's okay. The side streets and the food have been more than enough to keep us entertained 😁 .

Tomorrow, we're off on a short overnight trip to another place that makes us swoon over Italy, and while we're very excited, we'll also miss Bologna a bit while we're gone .

  • Nope, not Venice--this is one of the few remaining hidden canals of Bologna .

We loved walking around the city and hunting up the best viewpoints, though the literal line that formed at the most famous spot (a small window through which you can spot a pretty canal) was a bit much, especially considering one side was covered in construction scaffolding .

This viewpoint couldn't be more picturesque, though, and perfect encompasses how beautiful and vibrant we are finding Bologna so far. 😍 .

We're almost one week into our month long stay in Emilia-Romagna, and aside from the rain, we couldn't find it more perfect .

  • We just can't stay away from Italy .

After two visits in the summer of 2016 and a six week trip last fall, obviously what our travel calendar needs is another six weeks in Italy, right? .

We're going to be spending our first month based in Emilia-Romagna, exploring Bologna, San Marino, Modena, Parma, and whatever else catches our eye--Florence is just so close! .

It all sounds amazing, but let's be honest: we're mostly here for the πŸπŸ·πŸ•πŸ₯–πŸ₯©πŸ§€ .

What's your travel destination that you just can't quit? .
