Our Story

It all began when one day, cruising on a highway through colorful Arizona, we thought of quitting our day jobs and moving abroad. The idea stuck and before we knew it, we had moved to Taiwan!

We arrived in August 2018 with a plan to teach English on the island for one year and then follow the road from there. Well, after two weeks in Taipei, our plans drastically changed. We realized staying in Taiwan for such a long time wasn’t going to fulfill our wanderlust. So we kissed our luggage goodbye and held on to our backpacks. After a frantic job search, we were online English teachers and began this blog. Guess that makes us digital nomads now!

We are Darah and Garrett from Oklahoma, United States. We hope you’ll join us on our journey as we seek out deliciousness, breathtaking hikes, and immerse ourselves in as many cultures as we can. Our goal is to provide you with useful travel information that always has a budget in mind. From our mistakes (there are many!) to our successes, may you find them helpful for your own travel adventure!
