How we started traveling
Our first international trip was to Panama. Where we spent a month exploring the country with a high school group called Students Without Border Academy. We joined this group as a pair of chaperones with the responsibility of ensuring the safety and a positive experience for the students. Little did we know that this trip would cause us to fall in love with the country and experiencing it as a traveller and not a tourist. Let’s just say – we were hooked.
We met while working at a summer camp. After that summer we started dating and got married 4 years later in 2019. For our honeymoon we went to Costa Rica for 2 weeks. While we were in land of Pura Vida we both realized that we did not have enough time to explore the whole country. The rest you can guess what happened for 2020 – a whole lot of staying home. After a changing event in 2021 we decided that we could not wait any longer to travel the world. We started to plan our dream of driving the Pan-American Highway down to Ushuaia, Argentina. Jump to the present where we are now working hard towards our goals and preparing to embark on our grand adventure on January 2023.
