Hey everyone. We’re Heather and Fred. We’re a couple of young professionals hailing from the fair city of San Francisco, California; well, we are “originally” from Wisconsin and New York, but we live in San Francisco now. We started dating after meeting each other back in February 2009 at the Grilled Cheese Invitational (SF loves its obscure festivals and competitions). You can imagine the delight that a girl from Wisconsin, America’s Dairy State, would have when she found her beau at a competition for cheese sandwiches. It was fate.
Anyways, we’ve both always had a real love for travel. Our first international voyage as a couple was a one-week trip in 2010 to the Land of Fire and Ice, Iceland. It was love. Now with our fires lit to fill up our passports with new customs stamps, we recently decided what better way than to quit our jobs, put all of our belongings in storage, rent out our home, throw a few things in a backpack, and hit the road (er, air).
And so it was decided: 2 continents, 13 countries, 6.5 months.
We’ll be chronicling our travels as we explore the countries of Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Brazil, Peru, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Nepal, Tibet, India and The Maldives. Check back often. God only knows what awaits.
