Our Biggest Adventure

Away for the holidays

After saving and planning for almost 2 years, we finally packed our bags and took off in October of 2019 for the grandest adventure (check out a snapshot here). We started in Paris and spent the holidays making our way through Europe. We visited every Christmas market we could through Geneva, Zurich, and Berlin, and then spent New Years in Prague for back to back fireworks. After the ultimate traveler’s nightmare (Carl’s passport was stolen) in Athens in February, we thought our adventure would end too soon – luckily we were able to extend our stay and get a new passport before heading to South East Asia, spending about a month in Vietnam, and about 2 months each in Japan and Bali, Indonesia. If you’re curious about what how we packed, check out our packing list and gear list.

Chefchaouen, Morocco
Morocco was the most epic and stressful, poorly planned (due to inexperience), and magical country we've been to yet. With only 6 days we spent most of it driving but
La Sagrada Familia
One thing we love about Spain is how restaurants are typically open really late. We find Los Bellota, due to their strong online presence (good job guys!), and are delighted
Seville on the other hand, feels like the quieter, pious and dignified middle sister. She is a gorgeous historic city full of churches and lined with orange trees, and while
Ah Spain, there are so many things to love about you: thick hot drinking chocolate and churros for breakfast, tapas for all day snacking, and all the lush parks throughout
Padrão dos Descobrimentos, Lisbon, Portugal
Lisbon is one of our favorite cities so far: decadent seafood to 5 EUR hand pulled noodles, pastéis de natas and espresso any time of day, and literally breath-taking views
