Finally have put together a blog capturing our world travels over the past year! Looking to give insights into the Where, What, How, and Why of our travels. Hope you enjoy!

The Backstory

What had always been a dream of ours finally became a reality in November 2019. My wife, Rainier (Rain), and I decided to travel the world for 5 months.

“The destination teaches you of the world, the journey teaches you about yourself”

During this trip we were able to experience 3 Continents, 24 Countries, and 55 Cities

I have information broken down from each country. This includes Recommendations for everything ranging from Restaurants & Attractions, to Historical and Cultural insight.

Highlights

There were specific bucket list like experiences that I wanted to capture. Some that are a give, and others we would have never guessed.
