Hi everyone! We are Will and James. If you're reading this you've probably figured out that we love to go on adventures. We met way back in 2014 and it was love at first sight. Our very first trip together was to New York City where we learned very quickly, that when we travel together we can do anything together. Our love has grown and so has our sense of adventure which has led us to places all over the world. We document our travels to share with you, hoping to inspire you to grab someone you love and travel the world together.
Make sure to subscribe and follow along to watch our great adventures in love, life, and marriage unfold! Perhaps you'll catch a case of wanderlust and have an adventure yourself, even if it's in your own backyard!

James is a self-proclaimed adventurist and reality TV enthusiast who suffers from a chronic case of wanderlust. Due to James' passion for entertainment and media, he moved from Grand Rapids, Michigan to Los Angeles in 2009 and has worked in the entertainment industry ever since. James currently works as a freelance Social Media & Event Coordinator. When he isn't working or watching reality TV, he's usually searching for new adventures. One day James hopes to host a travel show where he can influence change in communities across the globe.
