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!

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Just a heads up, y’all: These first few posts are to give you a quick rundown of what this trip is to us, as well as what we’ve planned so far. That way, everyone will be up to speed and can follow along with us...

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...

"What are your plans?" "What are you going to do now?" "What's the next big step?" "Are you applying for any jobs?" "Where are you going to grad school?" You graduate college, and without a moment to think, you are bombarded with questions from others of what you should do...
