About Us

Hi! We’re Jack and Gab, a goofy American couple traveling the world one spectacular country at a time. In June 2019, we quit our jobs, booked a one-way plane ticket, and set out to travel the world with a carry-on suitcase. Traveling full-time definitely isn’t an easy lifestyle, but we’ve learned to love it by staying happy, healthy & fit on the road.

We met at college 5 years ago at the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!) then moved to San Diego, California to start our life together. With both of us working hard at full-time jobs and keeping our costs low, we were able to save up enough money to quit our jobs and start traveling. 

To document our travels, we started creating YouTube videos and blog posts. At first, it was a little tricky learning how capture the places we visit in the form of videos and photos. It was overwhelming with all the things we needed to learn! But it quickly became an amazing creative outlet for us and we hope it inspires others to see the world, as well.

We’re passionate about sustainable tourism. This means we typically try to skip the major tourist destinations, avoid flying as much as possible, and we are always learning new ways to reduce our ecological footprint. We’re also budget travelers, meaning we love discovering as many ways as possible to save money while traveling.
