“Traveling leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller” 
     -Ibn Battuta-

It is true! And here is our story. We are Thomas and Clay, the two kids from California behind this website. We met back in 2012, and every year after we met we took off to explore at least one country in this big world. After we got back, it was back to the daily 9-5 grind and we soon started having that wanderlust for our next adventure. For us, our appetite for travel was too insatiable for us to continue on this path. There is just too many countries to explore and we wanted to explore as many as possible. That is when we had our breaking point. We decided to quit our jobs, give up our apartment, sell everything we own, and take off to Nicaragua with a one way ticket. Let me tell you this past year has been the best year of our lives!

We started this blog a few months after we took off. There are so many travel blogs out there, but we all have a story to tell and we wanted to tell ours. When we travel we love to go off the beaten path and find those hidden gems. We’ve gotten lost plenty of times, took some wrong turns, and had to eat a few dollars here and there. But hey, it is all part of the adventure and just adds to our story. Here you will find our tips and travel hacks mixed with our experiences to hopefully inspire your own wanderlust. One of our goals with this website is to encourage others out there to go explore this big beautiful world!

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”

We hope you enjoy our story as much as we love sharing it!
