We learned that there is so much more to life than we ever imagined through our many adventures – which have included riding an elephant in Bali, river rafting in Argentina, climbing the Great Wall of China, sail boating on the Nile River, staying in a Bedouin camp in the Jordanian desert, visiting the hillside tribes in Thailand, scuba diving in the Red Sea, and zip-lining through a Costa Rican rainforest.

One day in New Zealand we were in crampons, hiking a massive glacier of blue ice. Another day we were in swimsuits, savoring wine and cheese in the churning, Jacuzzi-like waters where two rivers converged.

You have a chance to enhance your relationship when traveling. If you want to find the spice of life, travel and make it an adventure. We have so much to talk about and have such great memories. You rediscover the things that attracted you to each other in the first place when you travel as a couple. Traveling the world has brought us closer together.

A cooking lesson in Thailand allowed us to discover a whole new world of flavor that we love today. Eating healthy and taking care of each other is another benefit of rediscovery and partner appreciation.

We also wanted to learn more about the world and the people in it. Pat and I discovered the world is a wonderful place and people all around the world are joyful, generous, and loving. The people we met have more similarities with us than differences. They care about their families, work, and being a good person. We have learned much more about having a happy and satisfying life by meeting and talking to so many interesting people from many cultures.

Now Pat and I have a new “career.” We love to inspire others to travel, helping them to safely realize and afford their travel dreams from weekend getaways to longer vacations. Our mission in life is to help people live their travel dreams without breaking the bank.

Traveling is easier, safer, and more affordable than you may believe. We encourage everyone to go out and see this great big beautiful world. The experience has greatly enhanced our lives. See you on the road!
