Our Travel Philosophy
The plan is to go places too far to visit while we have a job and too rugged to do when we’re old. Don’t try to see everything; move slowly but thoroughly. Have a plan to guide us but don’t let an itinerary bog us down. If we love a place, we’ll get to know it, meeting locals and living the local way. We not trying to change the world but we’d like help where we can.

How We Met
Destined to be a match made in heaven, Anne and Mike were brought together in May of 2006 by a mutual friend to play a night of doubles volleyball. One would think the romance would’ve begun right there under the fluorescent gymnasium lamplight –but no, that would be too easy on Mike. It took a five-month pursuit of countless photo-filled emails, text message poetry, homemade jewelry, and themed house parties to breakdown Anne’s defenses. Then finally, on random night in Hoboken, watching Mike tap his feet and grin his sweet smile at live music show, Anne realized she was may just be in love.
