In our opinion, there is nothing more exciting than flying off elsewhere, marveling at something brand new or thousands of years old, meeting new people, hearing new languages, trying new foods, seeking new inspiration...and because of that, and more, we travel.
At first, traveling was pretty easy, we had summers off and what felt like unlimited time, we could sit around in airports for hours, we could bring as many ounces of liquids as we wanted in our carry-on. But, as time went on, our lives evolved and traveling changed. Traveling became more difficult, more frustrating, more anxiety-inducing. We had less time and more obligations. But our "to travel to" list was just as long. So, we set out to fit travel seamlessly into our changing lives.
There were some mishaps along the way: we packed for trips while also moving, only to find a desk lamp in our suitcase upon arrival in Tokyo; we followed a toothless man to "see waterfalls" and nearly ended up hiking the Atlas mountains in heels; we departed at 4am for a Canadian winter roadtrip and were promptly pulled over for speeding on ice; and then there was that one time in Italy when our train broke down and we had to figure out how to get to Cinque Terre on a coach bus using our barely beginner Italian in the middle of the night.
After a few years, a bunch of countries, and a lot of trial and error, we started to figure out the tricks, started to get it right.
