About Us


We started this blog for our family and friends to follow alongside  us on our journey, but for those who've stumbled across this page... Hello!                                                       


We're Graham and Jane and our story goes something like this:

We met in NYC and quickly fell in love with each other, but simultaneously fell out of love with our respective careers. For so many reasons and at the same time for no reason at all, asking ourselves "why not?", we decided to take off for 18 months to explore this beautiful world and the people who live in it.

Thanks for moving along with us on this journey, through what is planned and all the unplanned that is sure to come.  Welcome to our great affair!

Northern Croatia

October 7, 2018

We made the long drive up to Pula from Pitigliano and needed a starting point for our 3 weeks in Croatia.  We didn't know much about Pula but after doing a little research, we found out it has one of the best roman amphitheaters so decided to check it out.  It didn't disappoint.




The Temple of Augustus was built somewhere between 27 B.C. and 14 A.D.  



After Pula we headed to the Plitvace lakes area but we will cover that in another post.  We then made our way to Zadar and Split.  We loved the small Croatian towns on the water.  We walked around in the 35-40 degree heat and enjoyed the history.
