The Adventure

We are a young newlywed couple from Tacoma, Washington, USA living our dream of spending at least a year traveling across America and then exploring Europe, some South America, and wherever else we can. 

Our blog takes you through the several months of planning and preparing for the trip, leading up to our October 6, 2018 departure and current travels! Subscribe by email in the upper right corner so you don't miss any of our ridiculous stories, and follow us on Instagram or Facebook for more frequent photos.

We are on the trip!


Road trip from Washington State to New York City, taking a Southern route through Oregon, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and North Carolina, and then a bus trip up to NYC. Major stops include Portland, San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, Death Valley, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Carslbad Caverns, Albuquerque, New Orleans, Memphis, Martin, Winston-Salem, and more.

December: Paris, France!

January: Workaway in France; Switzerland

February: Italy (Florence, Rome, workaway near Lecce, Venice)

March: Zagreb and Zadar, Croatia

April: Serbia; Bucharest, Romania; Ireland

May: United Kingdom

June: Amsterdam, Netherlands; Germany

July: Spain; Portugal

The farther out we go, the less it's planned, but hoping for Spain and Portugal before flying to South America for Ecuador and hopefully Brazil, eventually Mexico before heading home.


  1. I found your blog through your parents' blog. :-)

    I love that the two of you planning to do some serious adventuring while you're young. In some ways, I wish we had done the same instead of waiting until we were old and wrinkly. So fun to see you'll start off in Paris. My husband and I honeymooned there. We didn't have much money so we stayed in a very dodgy hotel, but heck, it was Paris! After a couple of days, we spent the rest of our honeymoon backpacking around Europe. Great way to start off married life. Looking forward to following along with your adventures in Paris and beyond.

    1. Thank you so much, and that's definitely great to hear! Any tips you have or must-see places are welcome. I imagine there's something profound about traveling once you've lived a little more of life as well; what a thing to get to "do life" one way and then pick up and do it totally different! Thank you for your comment and for following :)
