Looking for the perfect gifts for hikers? We started our hiking journey ten years ago, and these are the things we love. Hiking wasn’t always in our vocabulary.

Looking for the top carry-on essentials to bring on your next flight? We got you! These will help you have a more comfortable and productive flight.

After traveling full-time since 2013, we’ve narrowed it down to what works best for us.  In general, we pack as lightly as possible and rarely check in a bag (seriously, I packed for 14 days in a carry-on with plenty of space left for gifts and Jacob’s shirts). On every flight, we always have these items handy.  A big ..read more

Visiting the Badlands? These are the best things to do in Badlands National Park. Badlands National Park is a must-visit if you’re in South Dakota.

Want to know what to wear to the airport? These are our ideal airport outfits. We’ve been traveling full-time since 2014, and I’ve gone through all the phases, from PJs to being completely dressed up in a stiff suit and heels. Now, I have landed somewhere in the middle.
