Travel is never a matter of money but courage.
Travel is never a matter of money but courage.

Paulo Coelho

Are you really happy or just comfortable?
Are you really happy or just comfortable?
I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list.
I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Neale Donald Walsch

Don’t listen to what they say. Go see.
Don’t listen to what they say. Go see.
Let’s go on an adventure.
Let’s go on an adventure.
We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.
We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.

TO TRAVEL IS TO LIVE

Travel is one of our biggest passions and this blog is about our past and future adventures as well as about ups and downs of becoming long-term, location independent entrepreneurs.
The Journey

In 2015 we went on the 6 months trip around South East Asia following the Banana Pancake Trail that took us to Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and Indonesia.

The Road Trip

In 2016, we went on the 3 months USA Road Trip which took us to Boston, New York, Washington, around Grand Canyon and along the Pacific Highway from LA to Seattle finishing off in Vancouver and Toronto in CA.

Microadventures

This is something we like to do in-between the big trips. The idea, introduced by Alastair Humphreys, is that you use any time you have to go on an adventure. These can last from a few hours to a few days.
