Whether you know us well or just happened upon us while daydreaming at work surfing the ‘net, chances are you don’t know our whole story. What can we say… we like to move around a lot! From meeting at a music festival, to traveling across the US on Phish tour, to moving to China, to exploring different countries in Asia, a lot has happened in five years. Follow our story chronologically and dive deeper into any parts that catch your eye.
Our journey begins in the summer of 2008, when a guy with a bag of wine in his hands met a cute blonde from Tennessee on a trampoline at a music festival. Unfortunately, he had plans to move to China the very next month. For the rest of the year, we were thousands of miles apart.
Another year, another Chinese New Year trip. In early 2013 we headed to the Phillipines for sun, sand, and adventure. Before bidding farewell to Beijing, we camped out on the Great Wall. We then kicked off our gap year with three months in the US. Our SE Asia journey began in Vietnam and we finished the year up in Cambodia.
While 2015 may not have been our biggest travel year, it sure was a big one for life events! We got hitched in the summer with a DIY Asheville hippy wedding. Music was a big part of the year, too, as we saw the GD50 shows in Chicago and went on Phish tour. It was also a year of change, as we bid farewell to China and moved to Bali so Sasha could take part in the Darmasiswa program.
The first half of 2016 was spent living in Bali and exploring other Indonesian islands. It was back to the USA for a huge month of music that included trips to Red Rocks and the Gorge. We decided to stick around for the fall, so we could try our hand at farming and catch the Phish Halloween run in Vegas. The year wound down with the trifecta of holidays – Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s, as we geared up to head to Mexico and start a new adventure.
