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!

Dubrovnik, Croatia & Montenegro

October 11, 2018

Dubrovnik, I feel, has been the travel buzz word for the past recent years, especially in part to Game of Thrones. And I can totally see why. This little town has such an interesting history given its role in maritime trade. While it was incredibly crowded (we understand that the city is going to start staggering the number of cruise ships coming to help maintain a more steady pace of tourists, vs all the tourists visiting at once), walking the walls of the old city was an experience I'll never forget. 

We planned to stay a short 4 days in Montegnegro before heading to Sarajevo, Bosnia. However, after an unfortunate incident (we blew a tire!) we had to stay a couple extra days and forego Sarajevo. Montenegro is such an diamond in the rough. Given how young the country is, there's so much potential for this wonderful place. It is relatively cheap, the water is crystal clear (although it has pebble beaches) and the people are wonderful (some may seem brusque upon first meeting, but still very kind). 


P.S. We went to visit Sveti Stefan only to find out that it had been renovated into an Aman resort within the past 8 or so years. You can't even access the resort if you're not a guest.
