About Us

We’re a couple in our early 30s who decided to quit our jobs and travel the world for a year.  Let’s see how far we make it.

  1. Hey Guys,

    I was browsing your site and it is fun to see what you are up to. Tim good for you pursuing the cooking adventure! You’ll have to get out here in the cafe for a day or two to see how glamorous or not glamorous the restaurant biz is. We’ll try to get to NYC to visit you two soon.

  2. The cafe is first on my list for the next time I’m in LA! Glad to hear it is going well.

  3. YOU SUCK! 😦 And I’m jealous. Congratulations to you both on the move. I sought you out because I had a funny experience last night. I was out with a friend of mine when I was being introduced to a tall guy named “Kelly”… he said he knew me. I scratched my head, literally. He told me that I used to date someone at Wavo… I said, “No I Didn’t…” Then I started to recall… oh wait a minute… TIM worked there. Sheesh, blast from the past. Vaguely recall Kelly.

    Anyway… I’ll be taking a couple of NY/east coast trips this year… I have a new nephew in PA and want to see him a lot. Would like to see you. Not sure if you have my digits, but they’ve stayed the same as they’ve always been. Get a hold of me, I don’t have a number or email to reach you.

    Be well.

  4. Hi Kelly & Tim,
    Just wanted to say hello….Your website is great! It is really neat to see all the pictures and see how you guys are doing. Sounds like you have a very exciting life in NYC! When are you moving back to Seattle?

  5. Hi guys…. we are in our last stop now, Singapore after spending a relaxing (although somewhat rainy) week in Bali. Loved your interpretation of our hike (and the movies) and may have to copy your description for my blog whenever I end up writing it. Hope you guys get some relaxation in soon – I am tired just reading about all your bus rides. Ugg. It was great meeting you both – we will look you up if we get to Seattle after your year is up. Please do the same if you make it to SF.
    We will keep checking in to see where you are, and live vicariously through you both now that our trip is over.
    Take care, Cathy and Scott

  6. Hi Kelly & Tim,

    I LOVE reading about your adventures and seeing your great pics! You guys make me laugh! I am vicariously travelling to these places via your blog! It was really great meeting you guys in Bali!

    Happy Travels!
    Anita

  7. KELLOOOO!!! Happy 32nd Birthday! How fitting that you are celebrating your birth in the land of your ancestors! hahahaha Miss you – Emy

  8. Hi guys,
    I randomly came across your website while Googling “Bali, Ubud, Healers” since I will be going there next week. And I must say that my jaw hit the ground when I read about you both, because my boyfriend and I are also in our 30s, we quit our jobs and are traveling around the world for a year. (Another similarity, I am Asian and he is Caucasian.) We are right there with you in that ‘odd’ age range where we are no longer staying up late, drinking every night and partying–but nor are we staying in posh resorts with AC. And just like you guys, we usually end up with a fan room, but will definitely pay for our own bathroom. =) We are also traveling around SE Asia. And, last similarity–I started off the trip thinking, “Well this will make or break us. . .” We are 8 months into it. I’ve been blogging this trip as well (although with not nearly as fancy a website as this!) but need to get on the ball and update things. . . time just slips away. http://travelpod.com/members/gocarygo
    Oh–last thing: we read Born To Run as well, and now only carry flip-flops and Vibram 5 Fingers in our backpacks. They take up much less room!
    ~Cary (& Chris)
