Our Story
Nathan and I met my senior of college. He had recently moved back to the states after living in Italy. When I learned about the lifestyle he’d been creating for himself over the last 6 years:

6 months in Cambodia, 1 year in Germany, 2 years in Italy… I was blown away.
I guess I never imagined living that way was an option unless you had a lot of money.

Nathan would work in California for 2 years, save every dollar he could, move abroad, find a job in that country, live there for 1-2 years and then do it all over again. Each time, he’d learn the language of that country, acquire new skills & make lifelong friends.

After about 12 months of prepping (and saving), we were ready for our first big adventure together. So we packed our bags and made the BIG move to Australia!

Nathan worked as a private personal trainer and I was a marketing consultant.

After spending 3 years there and getting to travel to some seriously awesome destinations on that side of the world, we were hooked! We promised ourselves that we had to find a way to work and travel full time together!

We then re-organized our lives for remote work and continued to travel, even if it meant taking a pay cut at first.

And then added “making videos” to the mix (starting with just our iPhones!) hoping to SHARE all the amazing things we’d experience along the way.

Currently, we’re planning our second year of RVing across the USA. It doesn’t always look pretty but we’re gonna make it fun either way!

The grind and hustle we put in to our jobs and videos has been quite full on and the support from people has been amazing. Our ultimate dream is go all-in on video production and be able to cut back our hours working other jobs.

Thank you for supporting!

  1. I appreciate your videos, when I finally get my RV, I hope your first year on the road helps my journey be a bit easier. Great content as usual.

  2. Good tips! I've had black tank issues twice during the 8 months we've been on the road, bought a wand you insert into the toilet to help flush things out. BTW: I always hook up electric first, you never know if the pedestal is bad, and you need to move to another site.

  3. Such a great concept for the video guys! No drama, just the reality of it and done in such an entertaining way. Every one of the mishaps you highlighted will help someone, no doubt. We laughed, we cried, and loved it. One of our biggest mistakes was going on the roof while in Colorado to remove snow in sub zero temps. Just walking around made the seal on the skylight crack since it was brittle in the cold. As you say, an opportunity to learn and grow. Cheers!

  4. Great video as always πŸ™‚ ohh the mice. We always have problems with them during the winter in our home (country living). But we have a great mouser. When we hit the road we are taking our pets so hopefully he'll keep them away.. Keep up the great work! We always learning something new and have a laugh while we do πŸ™‚
