Are you craving a life of freedom, adventure and fulfilment and looking for a way to financially sustain that?

Whether it’s with a travel blog, or another location independent business idea, we have a wealth of insights on the entrepreneurial journey.

We’ve been successfully travel blogging for over 10 years WHILE traveling with kids and homeschooling full time.

Our blog earns us a full time income, allows us to travel wherever and whenever we want, and has even granted us a green card – an almost impossible thing to get.

We have loads of experience to help you. Follow the links on this page to learn more.


When we started travel blogging in 2010, we had no idea what we were doing, nor where it could go.

We just saw potential, possibility and our passion for sharing our personal travel tips and stories!

After years of searching for ways to create our own business so we could continue to travel and have control over our choices, we eventually discovered travel blogging and knew we had found the ONE.

Step by step, day by day, we got to work on building our site, our content, and our audience.

Slowly, our travel blog grew and bought us a life and opportunities that went way beyond our dreaming.

We've partnered with many of the top tourism brands and boards in the world - almost all of our dream client list we made right back in the beginning (2010).

We've received entrepreneurial awards, were invited to attend a summit at the White House as a top digital travel influencer, and were granted a green card for our extraordinary ability in the art of travel blogging, which now allows us to live in our soul home, Raleigh. NC.
