We are two aimless wanderers in pursuit of the Great Unknown-- strange places, enchanting cultures & fascinating strangers. For some people, like us, home is the road. Trains, airports, & life stowed away in backpacks, always on the move.
In a month, we’ll be back on the road again. For the first time, we will have no itineraries; just our passports, our backpacks and sturdy shoes for walking. We’ll go where the day takes us. Eat, meet, discover, and swim in new waters. And hopefully, there, along the road, find new good things that will not satiate this thirst for adventure (I cannot even think of it), but instead make us even more parched and yearning for new places to tread. After all, the road is life.
"Traveling the world is one of the greatest things you can ever do for yourself. It will shatter all illusions, stereotypes, and notions you have of the world and the people in it. You will unlearn, learn, and relearn things you will never discover through a book, a classroom, or a degree. It will humble you, shake you, wake you up. It will seep into your pores and find its way to your heart, and it will find it fast. The veil over your vision will come off and you will experience things that fringe over magic. And you will never ever be the same again in the best way possible. So do yourself a favor, and just buy that damn plane ticket."
