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.

Our lives havenโ€™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, weโ€™re still all about working together to explore this incredibly beautiful world that we are lucky enough to live in.

Weโ€™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.

  • Rainy afternoon, messy hair, who cares? .

No day trip goes perfectly--but when it ends with a view like this one, we'll always be satisfied .

We are missing Italy already! Our first week in Bulgaria has been lovely, but mostly buried in our computers working (which is a good thing) . 
We'll have lots of Bulgaria photos to share soon, but on Instagram at least, I think we'll hang out in Italy just a little bit longer... .

  • Quick, what country is this? .

If you guessed Italy, you'd be right by law but perhaps not entirely correct by spirit: South Tyrol has belonged to Italy since 1918, but culturally, it feels a lot more like being in Bavaria than being in Tuscany (and probably even closer to being across the border in Tyrol, Austria, where Jeremy's grandfather is from and where we still desperately need to visit) .

Hearing German being spoken is common in this area, in some villages even more common than Italian. The architecture is distinct from the rest of Italy, and the food is a deliciously pleasant mix of pasta and wienerschnitzel .

We love this part of the world--though it was cloudy on the day we took this, the views of the Dolomites are stunning in South Tyrol, and the hiking is wonderful .

So far, both of our visits have taken place in the spring, but South Tyrol is also a popular skiing destination. Perhaps we'll come back in the winter sometime! .

  • Happy anniversary to us!! .

We have been married for five years today, and each year has been more special and unpredictable than the last .

So far, we have celebrated our wedding anniversary in South Padre Island, Plitvice Lakes National Park, Seville, Boston, and now Milan. Here's to continuing the tradition of never celebrating in the same place twice! .

Tomorrow, we celebrate a different kind of anniversary. Five years ago tomorrow, we both left the USA for the first time in our lives when we headed off to The Bahamas for our honeymoon--clearly, it didn't take long after that for the travel addiction to set in. ๐Ÿ˜œ .

Fittingly, tomorrow we set off for yet another new country--we are sad to be saying goodbye for now to Italy, but excited for our next stops and what the summer holds .

  • Enjoying our first experience with the iconic views over Manarola ๐Ÿ˜Ž .

Our first trip to Cinque Terre in 2016 was a bit of a comedy of errors: a train strike meant the trains between the villages weren't running, and we ended up only seeing Monterosso al Mare .

This trip came with its fair share of challenges too--like the fact that it was definitely drizzling on me in this photo--but we did get to see four of the five villages (Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, and Manarola) and generally had an amazing time .

We had to talk ourselves our of doubling back to visit for a few more days (too last minute, too much work to do), but I don't think we'll wait another two years before our third visit--the villages are just too pretty to stay away from! .

  • We are ridiculously behind on work from more or less blowing off our responsibilities for the last week and a half to enjoy Italy with family, but there's no need to wine about it. ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿท .

We first experienced the beauty of the South Tyrol region on another family trip in 2016, and our return trip lived up to expectations--I have dreamed about this view for 2 years, and it has only gotten better .

We adore Tuscan wine and vineyards, but the truth is, when it comes to straight up views of wineries... South Tyrol has internationally famous Tuscany beat .

  • When I think of Italian cities set on rivers, Florence is usually the first spot that comes to mind... but Verona has its charms, too .

We adored the bright, beautiful colors of Verona, with the spring flowers spilling out everywhere--the whole town could easily fit into an impressionist painting .

Like so many of the other places we visit in Italy... we know that we'll be back in Verona as soon as we can. .

  • "In fair Verona where we lay our scene..." .

William Shakespeare made Verona famous for long after he was gone: this stunning Italian city is known across the world as the home of the star-crossed lovers Romeo & Juliet, and while I have never been the biggest fan of the play, it was fun to have such a modern connection (my freshman high school curriculum) to such a very old story when wandering these streets .

But, here's the catch: Shakespeare was not the first person to tell the story of Romeo and Juliet--he wasn't even the second! He wasn't the first person to set it in Verona, either--that honor belongs to an Italian, and rumor has it that Romeo & Juliet (in Italian, Romeo e Giulietta) is based on the true story of two lovers in Verona from the turn of the 14th century .

Wherever the story came from, Verona holds onto it today: from climbing up to Juliet's balcony, to sending letters to Juliet, to visiting Romeo's house, and of course to putting on the play multiple times per year, Verona is still all about the Romeo & Juliet tourism .

  • 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 .
