Hi there! We are Jackie and Mike, your average millennial couple who can’t seem to keep our feet in one place for too long.
We met the old-fashioned way – when Mike picked Jackie up at a bar in Toronto 🙂 Now 3 years later we are engaged and excited to start another new adventure together.
During our 20s and early 30s we committed our minds, bodies and hearts to our jobs. Luckily we each had the opportunity to travel both for work and pleasure during this time. As it often does, this fired us up to travel even more. Jackie worked at a non-profit while Mike was in banking. This led us to travel before we met in very different ways. Jackie comes from the mindset of doing everything on the cheap; constantly wanting to get as far as she could on every dollar. This often led to inconvenient flight times and lots of shared dorm rooms. While Mike wanted a good sleep in a comfortable bed at night and flight times that were conducive to not needing a week’s recovery.
After 10 years of career and not having enough moments to ourselves, we decided to quite our jobs and travel together for a year. As you can imagine this was a great learning experience for us. We learned that to both be happy while we traveling we needed to compromise. That led us to a middle ground which included some luxury hotels or villas, lots of incredible meals and really getting off the typical tourist track to explore that natural landscape and culture and our host country had to offer.
Now we have collectively visited over 40 countries! Each and every time we return home friends ask us for tips on where to go and what to see. So we decided to start this blog to share our experiences with anyone who is interested.
THANK YOU for visiting our website and for joining us on our adventure! We would love to hear your tips or suggestions for our trips; most importantly our upcoming honeymoon!! Looking forward to hearing from you.
Jackie and Mike
