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.

  • The prettiest fairytale village that we ever did see. 😍 .

Cesky Krumlov, with its castle, beautiful rooftops, and surrounding river, couldn't be more idyllic if it tried...so it's no surprise that this South Bohemian town struggles with the effects of overtourism .

Want to avoid the crowds and help spread the love a bit? Consider visiting during the winter! Not only are the snowy views magical, the crowds are virtually nonexistent: other than a handful of tour groups, we had the entire town nearly to ourselves in early December. ❄️ .

  • What's your dream trip for 2019? .

In 2018, we were dying to make it to South America, and crossed it off very early in the year with our January trip to Colombia. We had a blast, and our horseback ride to this waterfall on Valentine's Day was definitely one of the highlights (even if it did start pouring down rain seconds after snapping this photo) .

We also wanted to visit sub-Saharan Africa, and we were lucky enough to fly down to Mozambique & South Africa for an insanely memorable trip this fall .

In 2019, we're planning to spend lots of time in Europe, but we also have our eye on 3 other regions: the Caucasus, Central Asia, and the Middle East .

Realistically, we'll probably only make it to 1-2 of those regions...but it's nice to dream about reaching all 3. πŸ˜‰ .

  • Five years ago today, we were enjoying our first trip to Paris... which was also our first trip to Europe and our second time traveling outside the USA (the first had been six months beforehand for our honeymoon to an all-inclusive in the Bahamas) .

Neither of us had a passport until we applied for them before our wedding--we had both always wanted to travel, but life hadn't given us the opportunity beforehand .

Clearly, we got hooked: by our third wedding anniversary we were celebrating in Spain during the second month of our "six month" round-the-world trip (we're now approximately 32 months into that trip, if you still want to call it that πŸ˜‚) .

The beginning of the new year always makes me reflect on how life has changed over the years...and also set ridiculously ambitious goals for the future. We'll see how far we get in 2019! 😍 .

  • HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! May your 2019 be filled with love, excitement, creativity, adventure, and--of course--plenty of travel. πŸ˜‰ Here's our top nine of 2018--it brings me such joy to take a moment to relive these adventures .

1 -- Climbing Lion's Head in Cape Town! The drop off wasn't as severe as it looks, but the angle makes for a fabulous photo .

2 -- A rainy afternoon in Cinque Terre--it was even drizzling when we took this .

3 -- Riding in a hot air balloon over Cappadocia! We were so tired, cold, and exhilarated that morning. I was also super proud of myself for putting my fear of heights aside in order to go .

4 -- Sort of dancing in Tayrona National Park! We almost didn't take this because setting up our tripod was annoying and we felt ridiculous posing with so many people around, but it was 100% worth it .

5 -- Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria. We climbed high above the popular bridge and had this viewpoint all to ourselves for a few minutes .

6 -- This viewpoint of the wineries near Bolzano is one of my favorite views on the planet .

7 -- We actually took this photo on a food tour. Our guide took us to this spot and said that it was made for Instagram. He was right. πŸ˜‚ .

8 -- I loved getting this photo in the Grand Bazaar. Istanbul's lamps are magical and this shop owner was so sweet .

9 -- Behind the scenes of this photo in Verona: many locals enthusiastically cheering on people playing a sport we couldn't identify. πŸ˜‚ .

  • Me before Christmas: Let's go see snow! I want to be in a winter wonderland! ❄️ .

Me immediately after Christmas: But... we can go back to sleeveless dresses and sunshine again now, right? .

  • Merry (almost) Christmas from the Storms!! Hope everyone who celebrates is having a delightfully relaxing and sugar-filled Christmas Eve. β€οΈπŸŽ„β›„ .

We're spending this one at home in the USA with family, with plenty of hot chocolate and cookies to go around .

We still haven't ever had a White Christmas in our lives--next year may be the year that we finally find a way to cross that one off the bucket list! .

Until then, heres to finally doing a European Christmas Market tour earlier this month, to another beautiful year of travel and marriage, to time with family, and to these mountains pictured behind us near Bolzano--they get more impressive with every visit. πŸ”οΈ .

  • We could never tire of Paris .

Our August visit to the City of Lights may have been our favorite one yet: between the perfect weather, manageable crowds (hello skip the line tickets), and all the delicious food we found along the way, we were so sorry to say goodbye .

Here's hoping for at least 2 more trips to Paris in 2019--it would be amazing to finally time a trip for the fall foliage. 🍁 .

  • A few days ago, we left Italy (and Europe in general) for 2018, and it was bittersweet to say goodbye πŸ’• .

We ended up spending around 3 months exploring Italy this year, checking out both new destinations and returning to old favorites .

Some of our favorite new Italian cities of the year? Stunning Siena and vivacious Verona--both cities charmed us immediately, and we know we'll revisit them both again many times in the future .
