When we left our home in San Francisco, we weren't sure where the road was going to take us, but we were dying to find out.
Before we decided officially that we wanted to sell all of our possessions and live a nomadic lifestyle, we wanted to dip our toes in the water a bit. So, we decided to take an epic 3 month road trip around the country so we could get a taste of what it was really like to live out of a backpack and travel full-time!
Our trip took us all around this huge country of ours. We met some amazing people and had experiences that we'll take with us forever. We shucked oysters with the locals in Mississippi, cooked ribeye steaks with bonafide cowboys in Bandera, TX, snuck into an abandoned ghost town, and peered over the edge of the greatest expanse in the world, the Grand Canyon.
The Grand Canyon has to be seen to be believed. Peering over the edge and looking 6000 ft down just might change your life. Check out that day's vlog for an up close view.
We spent a lot of time in Texas and the sunsets never disappointed.

Our road trip might be over but the adventure is just beginning! We're heading over to Europe for the next few months, then we'll slowly make our way over to southeast Asia. It's going to be an amazing year!
