Hi, we’re Matt and Alana and thanks for stopping by our website!
We grew up in Central Wisconsin, but didn’t meet until our senior year of college. Since then we have lived in Madison, Wisconsin and Minneapolis, Minnesota and loved them equally. Both cities are known for having a major local focus and have cultivated our passion for getting outdoors and being more active in our everyday lives.
Until June 2014, we were on the standard path towards achieving the American dream. We went to college, got married, bought a house, had steady jobs, and were working for the weekend. However, an extended vacation to Nicaragua in 2013 changed everything. Read about it HERE!
After traveling around the world full-time for almost two years, we are transitioning back to a U.S. way of life. We’ll be figuring out the best ways to get the most out of our vacation time, while still holding true to our newfound principles for traveling. We know you don’t have to break the bank for a fantastic experience and we plan on showing you how.
We are excited for the next chapter, but never plan on stopping our exploration of this Great Big Globe!
