About Us

We are Rachel and Taro and we have been together for over three years. Despite both growing up outside of Boston, in neighboring towns less than 2 miles apart, we didn’t meet until we both worked for a travel company in 2013.

We both have multicultural backgrounds and a passion for exploration. Less than six months after we started dating, we found ourselves gallivanting through Ireland, Scotland, and England in a whirlwind of dancing, drinking, making friends and most importantly, falling for each other. After this experience, we quickly learned that we valued living in new places, not just visiting them. So at the start of 2015, we began a cross-country road trip ending in San Francisco, California.

We have always had a knack for booking travel arrangements and our friends constantly seek out our travel advice and destination suggestions. After years working in the tourism industry, we decided to create New Routes to give travelers the tangible tools they need explore the world.
