We are a couple of elementary school teachers who have been married for 20+ years. We both grew up in Alberta, Canada. In 1996 we realized we both hated winter and moved to the beautiful city of Victoria, BC.
We are lucky enough to be able to defer our salary so that every 5th year we are able to travel for a whole year. We believe in enjoying life, and travel every chance we get.
Sometime I refer to Steve as “The Handsome Man” or “The King”. These nicknames are not because he’s full of himself (really!), but were nicknames given by hilarious little kindergarteners when he used to teach them gym. 🙂
Self-described princesses, we are mid-range travellers. We travel as cheaply as we can, but with rules. We don’t share a bathroom with strangers (we certainly don’t stay in the hostel where you use the bathroom bus in Bangkok), we need a clean bed, and we rarely eat off food carts. Sure we’d like to stay in expensive places… but until we win the lottery that won’t be happening very often!
We love to be warm, and tend to follow the sun on our travels (You won’t find any posts about visiting the North Pole here!)
We started this blog mostly to help preserve the memories. (The older we get the more we forget…) We also want to keep our family and friends informed so they know we’re safe (why wouldn’t we be… we don’t do crazy stuff?!?) Finally, it amuses me to write, if it amuses you to read it, then welcome :).
