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.

  • It's not hard to see why Gordes is one of the most popular villages in Provence. ๐Ÿ˜ .

Built onto a plateau overlooking the famed Luberon Valley, Gordes is fully of tiny, winding streets and absolutely gorgeous architecture--not to mention bustling weekly markets and tasty Provencal food .

Gordes has been called one of the most beautiful villages in France, and after spending some time at this pretty overlook, we might have to agree .

  • St. Remy is a colorful piece of heaven. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™ .

All the villages of Provence have their charms, but we were especially captivated by beautiful, lively, and artistic St. Remy .

Van Gogh once spent a year as a self-admitted patient in an asylum here, but the artistic spirit of the place extends far beyond him: even today, it seems, there is a gallery around every corner in St. Remy .

  • I could get used to seeing wisteria bloom in Provence. ๐Ÿ’œ .

True, Provence's famous lavender isn't blooming at this time of year--but wisteria makes a nice consolation prize! As for the lack of crowds, the sunshine, the breezy spring weather, the delicious food, and the endless markets... they're pretty much perfect, too .

This is our first trip to the south of France, and we are delighted by what we have found so far--and by the fact that we still have quite a bit of time left to enjoy it. ๐Ÿ˜ .

  • The first time I laid eyes on Notre Dame, I was dazzled by... everything .

Paris was the first city in Europe we ever laid eyes on, and Notre Dame was the first house of worship of its caliber we ever set foot in. Everything from the doors to the floors drew us in. We marveled over the statues, the stunning back of the cathedral that I'd somehow never seen in photos before, the stained glass, the gargoyles. All of it .

Since then, we've returned to Paris again and again, and loved being greeted by the enduring facade of Notre Dame each time .

Paris without Notre Dame, for no matter how brief a time, seems incomprehensible. My heart breaks for Paris tonight. ๐Ÿ’” .

  • In just 3 days, we'll be back in France! ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿท๐Ÿฅ .

This photo is from our trip to Alsace in early April last year--as you can see, even though we didn't have great luck with the weather, Colmar was still a stunner--but this time we're headed to completely new-to-us locations! .

We're going to be starting with a couple days in Annecy, a town I've had on my list for years, before spending some time road tripping through Provence and the French Riviera .

There's so much to look forward to--but my emoji choice above probably gave away one of our biggest priorities. ๐Ÿ™ˆ .

  • The Parthenon is looking pretty great for being 2500. ๐Ÿ‘Œ .

I've been crazy about Greek mythology since elementary school, when we did an entire unit on it that culminated in me building a statue of Zeus out of sugar cubes. ๐Ÿ˜‚ .

The Parthenon honors Athena, patroness of Athens and goddess of wisdom and war (she was always my favorite tbh). She was the daughter of Zeus, born from his head fully grown and armed. When you see all the๐Ÿฆ‰trinkets being sold around Athens, you can thank Athena--the owl was her bird .

  • That moment when you round the last corner on the trail from Fira and see Oia in the distance. ๐Ÿ˜ .

Seriously, though: Santorini was nothing like we expected. Or rather, it was MORE than we expected .

The iconic white villages, the luxury hotels with infinity pools that we definitely didn't stay in, the famous Fira to Oia hike, and the tasty wine were all there--but so was a volcano crater, giant cliffs reminiscent of Ireland (anyone else agree?), hot springs, lots of back roads worth renting a car and exploring, and ruins dating back to the Bronze Age .

We found ourselves simultaneously loving Santorini in all the ways we expected to, but also annoyed at ourselves for somehow underestimating a place that we had already been excited to visit .

Santorini, we'll come back...and maybe we'll even splurge on one of your epic hotels when we do. ๐ŸŒŠ .

  • Those Santorini domes. ๐Ÿ’™ .

This island, guys. I was a little worried that its extreme popularity would mean it was a bit overrated, but no. Absolutely not .

Santorini is magic--beautiful and diverse and geologically interesting and full of delicious food and ๐Ÿท .

It somehow managed to fulfill each one of my expectations while also surprising me in brilliant ways (its volcano crater is the prettiest non-lava-filled-one we've seen, btw), and we don't think one visit will be enough .

Also, visiting in March was a BRILLIANT idea that meant we had lots of sunshine but almost zero crowds to contend with, our literal perfect travel combination. Too cold to swim, but hey--Santorini isn't much of a swimming island anyway. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท .
