About the Authors
We are a twenty-something couple that has a passion for travel and exploring the world together. We are both from Michigan; however, our current stomping grounds is Seattle, WA. I work in clinical research and Kyle is Physician Assistant. With our busy schedules, we still maintain our desire to see the world and “work to live, not live to work.”
As youngsters, we were both lucky enough to have families that made a great effort to explore the vast beauty of this nation. These family adventures installed a desire in both of us at a young age to go out and explore the world!
Our adventure began together in 2008 at Michigan State University when Kyle sat next to me on our first day of Biology. This was the beginning of a beautiful love and friendship. In the summer of 2009, we decided one afternoon we wanted to explore Australia. We figured out the logistics and flew off to the Land Down Under in February of 2010 to study abroad in Melbourne. We explored the awe-inspiring landscape of Australia for 6 precious months. Since our return home, we have the dream to have many more adventures both in the US and abroad.
