We're Getting Married!
After the decision to extend a 2-hour layover in SF to 24 hours, we immediately bonded over a lengthy list of travel goals and an experience-driven life philosophy. From the beginning, we were inspired by one another and felt like anything was possible. And it was. Shortly after cohabitating on Maui, we created a savings plan and budget to make our round-the-world trip happen. Six (very fun) months later, we were on a plane to Saigon.
Traveling through 21 countries together was an experience that changed us; both as individuals and as a couple. We spent virtually every minute together for eight months. We found ourselves in stressful situations, on (very) long bus/train rides, with stomach bugs and culture shock. Yet the many amazing moments greatly outweighed the challenges, that we expertly learned to navigate with patience, a good laugh, and a cold beer.
This adventure was also the inspiration for Cohica, a passion project that has since evolved into a new business venture and (hopefully) a livelihood that will also do good for the world. We’re in the process of launching Cohica Tees 4 Good, a small retail line that will benefit well deserving NGO’s. And, we’re now officially accredited to book travel, so look for authentic, low impact, culturally immersive vacation packages available on the website starting in May. We hope that Cohica will continue to grow and are determined to have a life full of new experiences, challenges and exploration.
We're Moving to Spain!
Along with planning a wedding and launching a new business, we’ll be leaving for Valencia in just a few weeks. Many people have been asking us how we decided on Spain, and specifically Valencia. Here’s the scoop:
Valencia fits the bill
We’re itching for a new adventure
We want to (better) learn Spanish
We’re determined to work for ourselves, doing meaningful work, from anywhere.
Because we’re not done traveling
Because life is short, so why not?
