Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the #travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to go travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this #travelvlog to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling, and we didn’t want to stop after just one year! After achieving our new goal of 100 countries and then all 7 continents (check out our documentary here: we had no plans to slow down, until 2020 decided to force us to 😉 which is when we bought a converted Sprinter van to start exploring our own country for the first time. #Vanlife was a major adjustment and so different than flying every week like we were used to, but we are incredibly thankful to be able to continue doing something we love every day. 😊🎥🌎

    I like the van videos, but you didn't make a friend bragging on Bizz Class when this professional works for a company that forces us to ride in the back. And I weigh more than the two of you combined (well, almost). I really don't need you making me feel worse. But congrats on the upgrade(?).

    I hate when VPN's advertise unlocking region locked netflix, hulu. etc. It NEVER works. Netflix and others know you're on a VPN.
