What makes you interesting: We are full time adventure travelers who make a living online! This type of lifestyle is quickly catching on and those who give up their “normal” reality of 9-5 to travel and work from the road are called Digital Nomads.
Most magical place on earth: Iceland is by far one of the most unique locations in the world; one of the last untouched destinations left on earth. It’s exotic, naturally beautiful, and largely untouched by tourism which we absolutely love. Majestic glaciers grind their way through cracked lava fields, gushing geysers explode with a powerful force, glittering ice caps pierce the sky, and vibrant green fjords rise from the midst of geothermal lagoons. Iceland is very raw and very real – it’s truly the most naturally beautiful and unique location on earth! Visit Mapping Megan for tips on taking an epic Icelandic road trip!
What is your favorite mode of transportation when you travel: Car – we love the freedom and flexibility of a roadtrip; it’s hassle and stress free in terms of the process you have to deal with when flying (customs, immigration, flight delays etc), and you see and experience more of a destination than you do via any other means of transport, taking in the small towns and hidden local gems along the way to your destination.

What is the best part about having a travel partner: Advantages include your costs being split in two, safety in numbers, someone to take care of you, and shared bag space…which rocks! Also, some experiences are just better shared. There is absolutely nothing better or more rewarding than experiencing the world with your best friend. There is something truly special about sharing a moment with another person – and you’re not as lonely!
Traveling as a couple also generally means you see more. Two sets of eyes have proven to be better than one, and two different ways of interpreting the world has led to more enriching travel experiences.
Describe yourself in three words: Adventurous, curious, daring
