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.
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.
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.
