We are a thirty-something American couple originally from Washington State and currently based in the New York City area.    

In April 2017, we embarked on a year long work sabbatical in order to travel. Prior to that, for the past seven years, we lived in Manhattan where Travis worked as a commercial litigation attorney and Nicole as a C.P.A. and consultant with a Big Four accounting firm.

During our travels, we visited nine countries and made countless memories. For additional background regarding our sabbatical trip, check out this blog post. A year later, our lives went full circle and we returned to the New York City area to live and work. 

Over time, this website has evolved to focus primarily on some of our favorite things -- travel, books, and wine. Travis does most of the writing and Nicole provides most of the photography and recommendations. We both love sharing these interests. 

Our Blog page is where you can find our latest stories and what we've been up to. 

The Travel Photography page is where Nicole shares pictures from around the world.  

For specific travel recommendations -- restaurants, lodging, things to do -- check out the Our Favorite Places page. It's where we pass along the same tips we would give our friends. 

Finally, sign up for our Sunday Shoutout email newsletter. Each month you will receive an email with links to that month's blog content, along with other travel, book, and wine related content. You'll love it!

We hope you enjoy! And please do not hesitate to send us an email. We love hearing from you.
