Welcome! We are Lisa & Eric. Together 16 years, married 8 (gasp!). We live to travel and are at our best on the road, map in hand, making it up as we go along. In 2001, just a few years out of school, we jumped ship and explored, surfed, photographed, zip lined, and mangled Spanish across Costa Rica and Panama for 4 months. 12 years later we did it again, this time for an entire year. We rented our house, sold our cars, threw on backpacks and plunged ourselves into a year long journey that has now transformed into a lifestyle! We thrive on zooming way out – exploring new cultures, making lifelong friends and gaining the perspective you can only get from stepping outside your bubble and having your mind blown to see what presents itself when you are open to the possibilities.
Hometowns: Marin County, CA (current). Durango, CO (Eric). Fairbanks, AK (Lisa)
