I love to travel. However, it wasn’t until 2014 that I realized this. Before that, it was over 15 years since I traveled outside the US and Canada (and mostly on business at that).

Why did I wait so long to travel? There was always a reason not to…my friends couldn’t travel, I was scared of flying, I hated boats, I was ok with my selection of North American foods, and well…I was just used to my daily life and comfort zone.

But after I met my future wife Sophia, she finally got me out of my comfort zone and I started…travelling, doing, and experiencing. She encouraged me to start flying and after 20+ flights a year, I’m the guy that sleeps peacefully through heavy turbulence (even better than my wife does!). I also finally learned to swim and love boats, canoes, and anything that has to do with the water!

I’ll never have to look back at my life with regret. I can say that I lived, and that I was a doer – I tried new things, had new experiences, and went places.

Sophia and I have been traveling ever since –  experiencing  so many unique cultures, cuisines, and having thrilling adventures in this beautiful large world!

That is what this blog is about. It’s not only about our experiences travelling, but about getting you out of your comfort zone to try new things. From helping you to find bargains while shopping in Cannes to splurging on a flight and helicopter ride in the Grand Canyon, or finding some great street food in Palermo to an enchanting fine dining evening in Sorrento. If you read this blog and go “hmmm…I’d love to try that”, then go and do it – we’ve done our job.

This blog is not only filled with our experiences, but also how we did them – pointers for getting from A-B, what to know before going, recommendations on the touristy areas, and also how to find some great hidden gems. We strive to write in a way that’s helpful to you, so you can take that information – use it, modify it, and make it your own.

Enjoy our journey, and we hope we meet you on yours soon!

Jason and Sophia
