travel until we have to get real jobs
We are 30 and 31 years old and we love travel more than anything! We have been to 46 countries with no end in sight; we work to travel! We were on the road for almost four years from 2008-2012 living in China (yuck!), Thailand and Australia along the way. Right now, we're in South America on a three-month trip!
