About Us

We’re two friends with a passion for travel and a whole boatload of issues.  A few years ago we decided to start traveling together, because let’s be real: what’s more fun than two highly neurotic grown women vacationing far from the comfort of home?  We travel realistically – when time off from work and budget allows – and have a blast doing it all together!  For more about us and the genesis of our blog, read our very first post, And So It Begins, and check out our mini-bios below.

Jess

Age: A few years short of 40 (gulp)
First country visited: France, as part of a high school trip
Favorite places: Boston, Paris, Isle of Skye, Innsbruck, South Florida, St. Lucia
Dying to visit: Turkey, Morocco, Italy, Thailand
Phobias and neuroses: Skilled at complaining of various aches and pains; allergic to mosquitoes; tend to faint in random public places; mildly terrified of windmills and Mr. Peanut.
When I’m not traveling, I: Am a ghostwriter to the stars. Like to snuggle with my long-time boyfriend and our five (yes, five) cats. Enjoy swigging cosmopolitans and sauvignon blanc while dancing poorly. Watch enough bad reality TV that I can name every Real Housewife and her family members.

Nicole

Age: A few years past 30
First country visited: Mexico, while visiting a friend’s family
Favorite places: Boston, Reykjavík, Kinsale, Rothenberg, London, Innsbruck
Dying to visit: Russia, China, Romania, Sweden
Phobias and neuroses: Addicted to WebMD; consider heat and humidity my mortal enemies; have a serious aversion to condiments; subscribe to the saying “cleanliness is next to godliness.”
When I’m not traveling, I: Make a living as a digital marketing expert. Delight in my pet-free existence. Like nothing better than watching the NFL on Sundays. Enjoy BBC period dramas (Downton Abbey, Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre – to name a few) and am on the hunt for my very own Mr. Darcy.

  3. I’m so excited to have found your blog! I turned 30 not too long ago, and while I’ve done a fair share of traveling, I’m itching to see more… I think I may be living vicariously through your posts for a while! Can’t wait to explore some more of your blog!

  5. What fun to discover you two through Freshly Pressed, congratulations! I love your quirky, honest byline. I’ve been traveling all my life and delude myself into thinking that I’m a chill nomadic hippie, but in truth I have a hefty parcel of neuroses myself. (:
