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. She planted this idea long ago, and finally, with the plan of moving out of South Florida being the catalyst, we decided to pull the trigger! We quit our jobs and began this ‘Extended Honeymoon’. This is my perspective of being pushed out of my comfort zone, and Chasing Rain around the world.

“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.


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


Travel Tips

I have consolidated some hints and tips for traveling, especially on a budget.
