Beijing was one interesting experience. Over the week we were there we went through a wide range of feelings and experiences. Our favourite part of our time there however, were the times we simply walked around and explored the culture and the city. We learned 10 things you need to know before you go to […]

The Beijing Zoo: Elephants and Tigers and Pandas, Oh my! Still adjusting to the time difference, we were up pretty early one morning and decided to venture out to the opposite end of the subway system to where we knew there were a few tourist attractions.

  After much contemplation and discussion, we made the decision to resign from our full-time jobs, sell our belongings and trade in our lifestyle as a dual-income, apartment dwelling couple for two 45L backpacks and a dream of seeing the world together. We both came to the realization that our passion for travel could not […]

This past winter, after taking a web coding course, we both felt a hankering for Southern BBQ.?
