About Me


To travel the world and learn as much as possible..


My name is Joe. I am most often traveling with my wife, Adriana. We often share this profile to keep up with travelers/hosts.

We like reading, drawing, painting, good food, adventure, hiking, camping, photography, cities, nature, movies, theater, concerts, and of course new people and traveling(obviously)!

Joe likes politics, art, and philosophy, and works a full time job when we are not traveling. He loves to cook food for people.

We also host people when we are home.

Adriana just graduated from art school with her BFA and is looking for new directions to go with her art career. She also enjoys modeling and photography.

We enjoy doing a lot together when we are both free to explore. Various cultures are beautiful. No one likes to remain static and not learn or experience anything new. That's no fun!

We hope to meet a lot of wonderful new people and have lots of fun on this new path in our lives.

Philosophy, books, art, etc We are landscape photographers with a traditional art background. Wine!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

2011 has been a beautiful year for us.

Took a road trip all over the west coast of the US, Hiked through the Rockies, went to Moab.

Met some amazing people in Vegas to stay with
Got stuck in San Francisco with no money and a dead car. It was scary but also a very fun experience!
