Hi! We’re Jack and Gab, two full-time travelers exploring the hidden gems of the world together. We’ve been together for nearly five years, and traveling is when we both are at our happiest. That’s why in 2019, we both left our full-time jobs and hopped on a one-way flight to Eastern Europe. Right now, the plan is to travel full-time for one to two years!
Why We Travel
Travel is our outlet. It allows us to experience different cultures and learn from other people, all while having an incredible time. And while we’re big advocates of any travel, we’re especially passionate about traveling to more unknown destinations.
In 2018, we decided to take our passion for traveling to new places, eating international foods, and experiencing different cultures to the next level: We created Jack and Gab Explore. We hope you love our blog posts and videos as a way to experience the world through a different lens.
Our passion for traveling to unknown destinations started developing during our trip to Peru. After a crowded and lackluster visit to Machu Picchu, we felt slightly let down that the experience wasn’t everything that we had hoped.
The next day, we drove 250 miles south in Peru to a more rural region. Spending the day in Puno felt like a whole other world. The food was incredible, the locals were friendly, and nowhere we went was crowded with people taking pictures.
Thank you so much for following our adventures. If you want to read more about what got us into under-the-radar travel destinations, check out this blog post. Be sure to also follow us on Instagram and Twitter for more frequent updates of where our travels have landed us.
