Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to go travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling, and we didn’t want to stop after just one year! After achieving our new goal of 100 countries and then all 7 continents (check out our documentary here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuFv4... ), we had no plans to slow down, until 2020 decided to force us to ;) which is when we bought a converted Sprinter van to start exploring our own country for the first time. was a major adjustment and so different than flying every week like we were used to, but we are incredibly thankful to be able to continue doing something we love every day. 😊🎥🌎

    what it comes down to is the cost... vans are cheaper to run.. and more reliable then a bus.. but a bus you get wayy more room.. and it takes way more gas and not as dependable.. thats why im thinking a short bus route.. its like a van.. but its a bus .. so its bigger .. and not as bad on gas.. 100%% but i love you guys.. you rock!! this was soooo helpful.. keep up the amazing work. now i just need to find a builder for cheap. :) :)
