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!

Hey! You’re in Rome! And if you’re like us, you grew up seeing Rome’s famous sights on TV, in the movies, in books, and anywhere and everywhere. So of course, we had to visit all that we could – and relive our childhood dreams brought to...

There's a million reasons to love Missoula, MT. And one of those reasons is the opportunity to listen to live music all the time. And we mean it - all the time. Whether it is a local band playing at breweries or big time musicians...

On our first full day in Rome, we discovered that we had a chance to see the Pope. Typically our first day is spent researching the area we are staying in and planning what we have to do. Which means reading other blog posts, articles, and looking...

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...

It doesn’t matter whom it’s with, when you add to your original group (of two in our situation) your days are always filled… Not always with sightseeing, but you are always together even at the hotel, Airbnb, hostel or wherever you are staying, which is...

“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,...

Chloe and I had just finished our first pitcher of sangria. I'm not much of a sangria girl. At home, when I have had it, it's always too sweet, and the first sip warns you of the headache that is sure to come. But in Portugal,...

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...

Travel days can be more difficult than you think. Especially when you add in early mornings, no sleep, heavy bags, and misinterpretation of signs every which way. With the excitement of a new place brings the daunting task of how we're going to get there. Taxi? Public transportation? Walking? It can...

Experiencing other parts of the world = eating all of the food. Food is a huge part of every culture, including how and when you eat it. To us, it is important to find the least 'touristy' spot and do as the locals do. How To...

This is a question we ask ourselves frequently. It always depends on the city and what our plans are, as well as how long we are staying. Airbnb or hostel? Not all travelers on a budget have the luxury of considering these two options, especially if you...

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...

Chill days are important. Relaxing is important. Taking a load off is important. No matter where you're at in your life, everyone needs those 'recharge' days. Days where you sleep in, wear pajamas all day, eat junk food, talk with friends and families, catch up on a...

Located about twenty minutes away (by train) from the center of Lisbon are the beaches of Cascais. Tip: Do not attempt to drive to the beaches, and don't take the bus - traffic in Lisbon is awful. It moves very slow and can take three times...

Hungry in Lisbon? Have no fear, for the city is full of delicious food in every corner. Want some more advice on how to pick the best place to eat? Visit our blog post here. Food in Lisbon you must try: Here are a few of the...

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...

During our stay in Berlin, everyone asked us where we were headed next. After we told them Prague, all of their responses were always the same -'Prague is so fun!' and 'You're going to drink a lot!' And they were right...

Berlin is full of history. Chloe and I learned about the Berlin Wall, the birth of the city as it is known today, WWI, WWII, the Soviet Union, music, street art, and even more. There's so much to do and a lot to fill your day...
