After years working in the travel industry together, planning international trips for hundreds of people, we left our desk life behind to travel full-time. We are now on a quest to find the best experiences from around the world to share with our readers. Our goal is to provide you with in-depth information and tangible resources that will help you plan your next trip.Rachel and Taro
What Makes Us Different?
We Keep it Affordable:
Traveling the world shouldn’t break the bank. When we travel, we don’t sacrifice quality, but we do keep an eye on the finances. Often travel blogs feature 5-star hotels and luxurious experiences that are not realistic for us. On the other hand, we are past our hostel days so we are not exactly budget travelers. We focus on value by seeking moderately priced hotels and experiences around the world.
We Keep it Informational:
When we began reading travel blogs regularly, we found that many bloggers wrote highly expressive posts about what they were doing and how they were feeling. We would have to read through endless personal narrative before getting to the useful travel details we needed to plan our trip. Our goal is to make important travel information easy to find and put to use. For each destination we visit, we will have a city overview page providing you with essential trip planning information such as basic costs, things to do and places to stay. In addition, we supply you with tangible resources you can use on the road, such as interactive maps, city guides, language tools and more!
We Keep it Experiential:
We are all about experiences; whether they are culinary, adventurous or cultural. To us, lounging around on a cruise ship sipping pina coladas isn’t truly traveling, it’s passive travel. When we travel, we learn through our experiences and share the best ones we find in order to help you get the most out of your global adventures.
