Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu – #TravelbackThursday

April 30, 2015

Before arriving to Cusco and Machu Picchu we had a preconception that this whole area was just a big tourist trap. We figured that every corner turned would be a new opportunity to be hustled. And for the hike itself, well that wasn’t going to be too difficult. Jordan was a tad more nervous than […]


top ten things in cusco

Maybe it was because we went in with no plans for Cusco but to acclimate to the altitude for a few days, but this city absolutely exceeded all of our expectations. We didn’t do much research aside from a quick guide provided to us by a friend who had hiked the Inca Trail a few years […]

How to Celebrate Earth Day & Change the World

April 22, 2015

Happy Earth Day! April 22, or more commonly known as Earth Day, is the friendly reminder the world sends us once a year to think about the impact we are making on this beautiful planet. How much do you value the environment around you? How often to do you take a break to step outside? When […]


an unexpected homecoming

HELLO AMERICA!  As some of you have probably realized already through social media, we came back to America to surprise our families for Easter. While we are beyond happy that we were able to spend the holidays with our families, coming home was not an easy decision to make. Buying a flight home meant that we were cutting our […]

Isabela Takes the Cake

Isabela Takes the Cake: Why It’s the Best Island in the Galapagos

February 7, 2015

When we first arrived to Isabela, it felt like we were starring in an old western film. There was one dirt road through the center of town and it seemed as though everyone was staring at us from their porch as we walked through with our massive packs. The remoteness of this island was evident […]


A Quick Trip to Santa Cruz, Galapagos - QFYC

We only had two days to spend in Santa Cruz, but it seemed like just enough time for us. Our first day we spent here was in between the islands of San Cristobal and Isabela. To travel between the islands, you need to take a two hour speedboat. Santa Cruz is in between San Cristobal and […]

One Check Off the Bucket List: San Cristobal, Galapagos

January 30, 2015

January 7, 2015: We started this crazy adventure with a flight that barely made it out of NYC in time before the snow storm started. Fast forward a day and we arrived on the beautiful island of San Cristobal. The Galapagos Islands were nothing short of incredible. We spent just over a week across the […]


The Galapagos flew by in the blink of an eye and we both agree that it shattered every expectation we had. The minute you land here you can feel the energy.  It’s all around you. Almost daily Jordan and I would ask each other to describe how we were feeling and the answer was always […]

Can't Live By The Could Have's

Can’t Live By the Could Have’s

January 8, 2015

I’ll admit it: I’m a pretty bad Could Have’er. I’ll debate for ten minutes whether I should bring a jacket with me to the movies and then when I don’t continue to say, “I should’ve just grabbed that jacket..” Or I’ll have a lot of trouble deciding between two plans, and if the one I choose […]


And We're Off

It’s a little crazy to be writing this post from our first flight right now. After months of planning and talking and researching and dreaming, we’re finally on our way. It’s surreal. For anyone who has ever made a huge change in their life, I’m sure you know exactly how we feel. You can talk […]

And We’re Off!
