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.

  • South African road trip views ❤️ .

Our track record with road trips kind of sucks this year. Just like in Bulgaria, this one seemed to have plenty go wrong: rainy weather, a broken laptop charger, having to rearrange plans, and the grand finale, getting food poisoning on a vineyard and spending a very unpleasant and unmedicated night dealing with it .

On the plus side, though, it also had some amazing moments: seeing penguins on Boulders Beach, watching a beautiful sunset with a glass of wine (blissfully unaware of what the next few hours would bring), some unexpectedly delicious Thai food, and, of course, views like this one .

The memory of how bad we felt when getting sick hasn't faded quite enough to say the bad was worth the good, but we'll get there eventually. 😂 .

  • Hello from the bright and beautiful neighborhood of Bo Kaap! ☀️ .

This is Cape Town's traditional Cape Malay neighborhood, and it is known for its bright and beautiful houses--when street after street looks like this, it's no surprise that the area has gotten a bit #instagramfamous in the past couple of years .

Random tip of the day: Bo Kaap is right by one of our favorite breakfast spots in Cape Town, @clarkescapetown! We definitely lost track of how many times we ate there this month... 😋 .

  • Wild smile, messy hair, who cares? Hard to be anything but relaxed next to an ocean like this! 🌅 .

I don't think we could ever get tired of Cape Town's coast: the sun, the water, the hikes, the food... I feel like I keep going on this same rant about Cape Town, but this place is just so. damn. cool .

I've lost track of how many times we've discussed returning in the future for a 3-month stint: a whole summer in Cape Town would be quite the treat .

  • Hello, South African wine country! .

The Cape Winelands, including the famous town of Stellenbosch, are less than an hour outside of Cape Town... but with rolling hills, gigantic vineyards, and no coastline in sight, it feels like a whole different world .

We visited two wineries yesterday and while both had serious strong points, the one that included a sampling of different cheeses made on the property was the winner for us... because cheese, obviously .

  • Spending the afternoon bathed in golden light amongst the treetops 🌳 .

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is so stunning! Nestled right up against Table Mountain, everything from the vistas to the flowers to the lawns to the random dinosaur statue made the garden a sight to behold... And the perfect spring weather didn't hurt, either .

  • Cape Town is, without a doubt, one of the coolest cities that we have ever laid eyes on 😎 .

It's easy to see why people fall in love with it here: amazing beaches, hiking, and wildlife sightings are all within a few minutes reach. Wine country is less than an hour away. The food scene is bursting with brunches that could compete with the most trendy options in Brooklyn (for like 25% the price). The weather is beautiful. The benefits just go on, and on .

We had originally planned to move faster in southern Africa to squeeze in more countries, but in what is becoming a predictable pattern for us, we decided to spend a whole month in Cape Town instead .

It's good we did--because we're just not done with these views .

  • You & me & a cottage by the sea 😍 .

We loved our little beach cottage in Vilanculos! Everyday, we sat in the hammock and admired the gently rustling palm trees, the bright turquoise water, the boats going by, and, of course, the warm glow of the sunset .

It was incredibly relaxing to have a little home all to ourselves for awhile... Even if we did have our share of mishaps in it. Click the link in bio to hear all about what we got up to in Vilanculos (including how Jeremy got broken out of the bathroom with a sledgehammer 😂) .

  • Being on this uninhabited island in Vilanculos felt like being on another planet .

There was no other life as far as we could see. The wind blocked out any noise. The sand pelted us constantly, ranging from feeling like a slight caress when the wind was quiet to a painful slap when it picked up. And these sandbars? They seemed to go on forever .

Though we visited the island with a group, most people didn't choose to hike over the enormous dunes, so we ended up with this view all to ourselves for an hour .

It's times like this that make us remember how truly gigantic the world is, and how tiny we are inside of it .
