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.

  • There's just something about Madrid. ❤️ .

It doesn't have world-famous monuments on the level of the Eiffel Tower or Colosseum, its more refined look competes with flamboyant Barcelona for visitors, and its top ten things to do just might be places you never knew about before visiting Spain... but you should come to Madrid .

Come to Madrid for the gorgeous buildings, for the delicious churros con chocolate, for the street signs that are works of art, for the magnificent parks, for the amazing art museums, for the royal palace we're standing in front of .

Whatever it is that draws you in... Madrid will surely captivate you once you arrive .

  • Nothing sets our souls on fire quite like falling in love with a destination we only expected to like. 😍 .

Our first destination that fits that description in 2019 is Kotor--which was also our first new destination of the year, but that's neither here nor there. 😉 .

We adored this town: the maze of winding streets in the old town, the ridiculously friendly cats and dogs, the kind people, the low prices, and perhaps most of all, the amazing views, all made this a fantastic place to slowly savor for a week .

  • Kotor has exceeded every one of our expectations .

This tiny town in Montenegro is such a gem: from the gorgeous views from St. John's Fortress, to the prices that feel incredibly low after the insanity of Dubrovnik, to the beauty of the town itself, to all the friendly cats 😻, there are plenty of reasons that we are SO glad we decided to come here .

Hiking to St. John's Fortress (where we took this photo) from Kotor took us less than an hour, even with plenty of photo stops, and it was worth every one of the 1355 steps up .

  • "Orders are orders." 🗡️ .

It may look beautiful now, but these quirky doors in Dubrovnik were the filming location of a particularly brutal Game of Thrones scene: the slaughter of Robert Baratheon's (many) bastard children living in King's Landing .

Apart from depressing TV show scenes, though, these doors in Dubrovnik's West Harbour (aka Blackwater Bay to Game of Thrones fans) are quite photogenic and lend themselves to storytelling--walking around town and finding corners like this, it's sure not hard to see why Dubrovnik was chosen as King's Landing in the first place .

I have no clue where these doors actually go, but we'll imagine it's somewhere interesting. 😂 .

  • Happy 11 years of togetherness to us! 💕 (Tomorrow, anyway!) .

Last year around this time I shared a few facts introducing us via Stories--and since I'm pretty sure I haven't introduced us here before or since, here's a few facts about us .

1) We have been traveling full-time since May 2016 .

2) We're originally from a suburb north of Oklahoma City (Edmond) .

3) We were high school sweethearts and started dating at ages 16 & 17 .

4) The first time either of us left the USA was when we took our honeymoon to the Bahamas in 2013 .

5) We have a slight addiction to traveling in Italy and go back all the time .

6) We got married young--21 & 22 years old--and consider it one of the best decisions we ever made .

7) This is our third trip to Croatia and we're nowhere near done exploring the country .

8) We're traveling to our 40th country tomorrow! 😍 .

Big thank you to all of you who follow along with us, keep up with our shenanigans via our blog or social media, send us questions, and let us help you plan your trips--we ADORE our life and couldn't do it without you. 💕 .

  • We've definitely experienced far worse weather in February. ☀️ .

I wasn't sure how we we're going to like traveling to Dubrovnik in the winter--would we miss not having access to the beach? Would being here just make us crave summer? .

For the most part though, it has been downright magical: sure, we won't be breaking out our bathing suits on this trip, but in exchange, we haven't been hot a single day, haven't had to fight for elbow room on the streets, and get to have views like these virtually all to ourselves. ❤️ .

  • 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. 😜 .
