About Us

Hi There!

We're Markie and Chloe, and we are traveling the world... ok, maybe not the whole world, but that would be dope! Follow us along our journey through Europe, Souteast Asia, and wherever else we end up!

Cheers!

Visiting the Vatican City is a must for all visitors to Rome - but it can be daunting. And full of people. And hot. And full of people trying to sell you stuff. So come prepared with what you want to do - and know how to...

“Hey, it’s 5:32. Get up,” Markie kindly yelled as she exited the bathroom, already up, showered and getting dressed. Hung-over (because every night in Rome I thought I could handle my alcohol, and every morning reminded me I couldn’t), and tired as hell, I grumbled back,...

We love cheese. I mean we looovveee cheese. And we’ll spend some good money for some equally good dairy product. But unfortunately, ever since our time in Switzerland, we can’t seem to spend enough money to find what we’re looking for… because no one has it. Excuse my...

If you read in our last post, we described how we decide where to stay in a city. We're kind of particular, and know what we want and what we don't want. With that being said, we don't get it right every time, but we...

It might take a little bit to get an grasp of exactly what you are looking for, or better yet, what you enjoy, but once you do the perfect place can make or break your love for a city. How do you know where to stay? Quick...

Switzerland is visually exactly what we have always dreamt it would be; the Swiss Alps decorating every background, and the Swiss chalets placing you back 50 years. We had the privilege of getting to experience a raw and authentic view of Switzerland from a true Swiss...

Hey Y'all! We're here to give you a run down on the nitty gritty detail of our trip to Iceland and our adventures on the Ring Road! Now, before I begin, we did the Ring Road in 7 days, but Markie and I were there for...

Distance: 266.1 km Time: roughly 3 hours and 30 minutes   On day 3 of the Ring Road we were on the move again to Akureyri, which is the largest town in Northern Iceland. Before our drive we were able to kick-start it with some coffee (that seemed to...

Total Distance: 800 km Time: 8 hours (without stopping)   We spent this day driving a long ways due to not finding a place to stay until Egilsstaðir, Iceland. Egilsstaðir is all the way over on the eastern border of Iceland and is the second biggest town on...

Packing is a nightmare… especially when you’re trying to pack light, and make it all fit in one backpack. We talked to a lot of people, and had been planning what to take for weeks, but when it came time to do it we were...

As with all stages of our lives, we finish one chapter and begin the next. And as we write our story there are introductions, climaxes, and of course endings, but we’re never truly done until we’re literally laid to rest… I mean, come on, it’s...

It’s daunting to begin to save. Period. It’s hard to set a budget, especially if you aren’t budget savvy (like me) and enjoy getting coffees from your favorite coffee place everyday (like me). It can be hard to pick where to start, but about a...

Tips to begin packing up your house or apartment:   When leaving for an extended period of time, you will most likely be packing up and moving out of your house or apartment. Moving out is strenuous enough, but when you have to make arrangements to store...

In preparing for our trip, we began using Hopper that is an app that predicts when flights will be the cheapest and which flights will be the cheapest. The app will allow you to watch a flight and then it will send you notifications when...

Testing, testing..   Neither of us are strangers to long hours on the road, and we have both done a fair bit of traveling - I’ve explored a few parts of the world and some of the states, Chloe has been all over the states and road...
