Why We Wander
We wander because neither one of us know how to sit still. It's true. And putting our energy into travelling is far more exciting than cleaning the house. Seriously though, we both share a desire and passion to get out and soak in the wisdom of the world. Experience and devour new places, cultures and adventures. Capture their beauty and share their stories. Get inspired. Learn. Move outside of our everyday bubbles. Be reminded that so much more exists beyond our standard 10 mile radius. And of course to get away from it all and have fun!
