Solitude. After more than a month of trekking adventures, it feels good to slow down for a little bit. We've made it to Valparaíso on the coast of Chile and found a cozy old home to call ours for a while. Salty air and crashing waves, we've missed you. Fingers crossed this mini break lets us catch up on some blog posts we've been meaning to write🤞 — #travellove#adventuretogether#travel#travelcouples#travelblogger#travelphotography#travelblog#traveldiaries#travellife#traveltheworld#exploretocreate#exploremore#neverstopexploring#globetrotter#travelstoke#stayandwander#beautifuldestinations#passionpassport#mytinyatlas#wanderlust#theglobewanderer#speechlessplaces#traveldeeper#lifeofadventure#backpackers#naturelovers#liveoutdoors#nakedplanet#keepitwild#roamtheplanet

A few days ago we made a big move. After several glasses of wine, we bought our tickets home! It felt like the only way we would ever pull the trigger on buying our tickets would be drunkenly talking to each other about how much we miss our cat and all the food we miss from home. Thankfully when we woke up the next morning and checked the flight details, our names were spelled correctly and it was a flight from South America to New York. So in just under 100 days, we'll be landing at JFK en route to go snuggle with our cat and gorge on NY pizza and BBQ. It feels a little weird having a return ticket now, but we also know this is the start of a new adventure (we're moving to Cali!) and the first of many long-term journeys abroad 🌎 — #travellove#adventuretogether#travel#travelcouples#travelblogger#travelphotography#travelblog#traveldiaries#travellife#traveltheworld#exploretocreate#exploremore#neverstopexploring#globetrotter#travelstoke#stayandwander#beautifuldestinations#passionpassport#mytinyatlas#wanderlust#theglobewanderer#speechlessplaces#traveldeeper#lifeofadventure#backpackers#naturelovers#liveoutdoors#nakedplanet#keepitwild#roamtheplanet

"For small creatures such as we, the vastness is bearable only through love." - Carl Sagan -- Those tiny people in the photo - that's Rebecca's mom and step-dad in Cajas National Park from when they visited us in Ecuador. -- As we head into the holidays, we feel sad we can't spend them with our friends and families. But overriding the sadness is deep gratitude that so many people we love have made the journey to come visit us over the last 15 months. Rebecca's mom and step-dad have come down twice, one of her brothers has visited three times, and her other brother has seen us four times -- twice joining our journey for several months! If that wasn't enough, two of our best friends came down too! So yeah, we may feel a little down missing out on the holidays right now, but we also feel like the luckiest people in the world living a life like this with so much love and support from those closest to us. It may feel lonely right now, but damn is there so much love in our lives. #travellove#adventuretogether#travel#travelcouples#travelblogger#travelphotography#travelblog#traveldiaries#travellife#traveltheworld#exploretocreate#exploremore#neverstopexploring#globetrotter#travelstoke#stayandwander#beautifuldestinations#passionpassport#mytinyatlas#wanderlust#theglobewanderer#speechlessplaces#traveldeeper#lifeofadventure#backpackers#naturelovers#liveoutdoors#nakedplanet#keepitwild#roamtheplanet

Ever dream of going to the Galapagos? If you’re an animal and nature lover like us, it’s probably a dream destination. But if, like us, you don’t have unlimited travel funds, you may think it’s a place that’s out of your budget. We thought the same thing, but we’re happy to report that it is possible to visit the Galapagos on a reasonable budget! We spent 17 days island hopping through the archipelago and spent half of what a budget 4 day cruise costs, and that included our flights and some diving! Wondering how to plan a trip of your own? Head to the blog for our latest post, “A detailed guide to visiting the Galapagos on a budget” (link in bio) 🦀🐋🐬🐠🦈🐢🐧🦎 — #galapagos#visitecuador#experienceecuador#travelecuador#travel#travelblogger#globetrotter#traveltheworld#explorenewplaces#passionpassport#speechlessplaces#beautifulmatters#mytinyatlas#beautifuldestinations#travelstoke#nomad#backpacking#neverstopexploring#iamtb#traveldeeper#welivetoexplore#exploremore#exploretocreate#travelling#traveler#travellife#wanderlust#roamtheplanet#budgetbackpacker

Wishing we could lounge all day like this sea lion pup, but we’ve got too much on our to-do list as we prepare to head into Bolivia. Since we have American passports, this will be the most difficult border crossing on this trip. Extra passport photos, hostel reservations, a daily itinerary, and some crisp dollar bills are just a few of things we need to get together, so we’re on a scavenger hunt in Cusco right now. Anyone have any tips for smooth sailing through the visa process? — #galapagos#visitecuador#experienceecuador#travelecuador#travel#travelblogger#globetrotter#traveltheworld#explorenewplaces#passionpassport#speechlessplaces#beautifulmatters#mytinyatlas#beautifuldestinations#travelstoke#nomad#backpacking#neverstopexploring#iamtb#traveldeeper#welivetoexplore#exploremore#exploretocreate#travelling#traveler#travellife#wanderlust#roamtheplanet#sourcedadventures#wildlifephotography

Visiting the Galapagos is sensory overload. We got to see these famous inhabitants in their natural and wild environment. Walking past the giant tortoises, you hear them hiss and breathe like dinosaurs. It felt like we’d been taken to a time before humans roamed the earth. — #galapagos#visitecuador#experienceecuador#travelecuador#travel#travelblogger#globetrotter#traveltheworld#explorenewplaces#passionpassport#speechlessplaces#beautifulmatters#mytinyatlas#beautifuldestinations#travelstoke#nomad#backpacking#neverstopexploring#iamtb#traveldeeper#welivetoexplore#exploremore#exploretocreate#travelling#traveler#travellife#wanderlust#roamtheplanet#sourcedadventures#wildlifephotography

A blue-footed booby nesting on the rocky coast of Isabela Island. — Since we decided last minute to go to the Galapagos, we didn’t really know what to expect. Was it going to be high or low season? Are there any migrations that happen around the islands at this time of year? We had no idea what we were in for. It turns out we timed it perfectly! When we were there, flamingos and blue-footed boobies were mating, and sea lions were giving birth. That meant getting to see these creatures do their elaborate mating dances and tend to their young. — #galapagos#visitecuador#experienceecuador#travelecuador#travel#travelblogger#globetrotter#traveltheworld#explorenewplaces#passionpassport#speechlessplaces#beautifulmatters#mytinyatlas#beautifuldestinations#travelstoke#nomad#backpacking#neverstopexploring#iamtb#traveldeeper#welivetoexplore#exploremore#exploretocreate#travelling#traveler#travellife#wanderlust#roamtheplanet#sourcedadventures

That feeling when a sea lion pup waddles over and plops down right next to you. — The Galapagos had been a dream destination of ours for as long as we can remember. But to be honest, we didn’t think we’d make it there on this year and a half long journey across Latin America. We’d planned to make it a trip if its own. But as we got closer to the equator, we couldn’t resist. We impulsively bought tickets eight days in advance and traveled around the islands for 17 days. It was surreal. So when @yellowzebrasafaris asked travel bloggers to write a post about their favorite holiday to win a luxury safari in Tanzania, we knew we had to write about our time in the Galapagos. Wild animals, bizarre landscapes, and some of the most aggressive conservation efforts in the world made these islands so magical. Here’s to hoping we win a trip of a lifetime to fall in love with another continent. #TanzaniaWithYZS — And thank you to @alongdustyroads for sharing this incredible competition!

A serious case of the Monday blues. It’s raining in Cusco and we’re dreaming of being back in warm weather and snorkeling in this maze of collapsed lava tunnels. This spot on Isabela Island did not disappoint. We saw dozens of sea turtles, lots of whitetip sharks, sea horses, rays, blue-footed boobies, and even two penguins! — #galapagos#visitecuador#experienceecuador#travelecuador#travel#travelblogger#globetrotter#traveltheworld#explorenewplaces#passionpassport#speechlessplaces#beautifulmatters#mytinyatlas#beautifuldestinations#travelstoke#nomad#backpacking#neverstopexploring#iamtb#traveldeeper#welivetoexplore#exploremore#exploretocreate#travelling#traveler#travellife#wanderlust#roamtheplanet#tropical

The Galapagos is a really special place where wildlife and humans live side by side. We knew we’d visit remote parts of the islands to see some of these creatures, but before visiting we had no idea that we’d see them everywhere we went. Marine iguanas bask in the sun on the sidewalks, and sea lions get priority seating on the benches at the dock and on the beach. Some people complain about having to step around them after a while, but we were in heaven getting to share this beautiful place with them. — #wildlifephotography#galapagos#visitecuador#experienceecuador#travelecuador#travel#travelblogger#travelphotography#globetrotter#traveltheworld#explorenewplaces#passionpassport#speechlessplaces#beautifulmatters#mytinyatlas#beautifuldestinations#travelstoke#nomad#backpacking#neverstopexploring#iamtb#traveldeeper#welivetoexplore#exploremore#exploretocreate#travelling#traveler#travellife#wanderlust#roamtheplanet

We aren’t sure what we expected the Galapagos to look like. Before visiting, we’d only really dreamt of sea lions, marine iguanas, and blue-footed boobies. But the land is just as strange as the animals that live there. These volcanic islands surrounded by the Pacific are harsh environments, and any plant life that thrives here has adapted to these conditions. While the tropical forests in the highlands of some of the larger islands are cloaked in fog and mist, most of the land area resembles a desert. — #galapagos#visitecuador#experienceecuador#travelecuador#travel#travelblogger#globetrotter#traveltheworld#explorenewplaces#passionpassport#speechlessplaces#beautifulmatters#mytinyatlas#beautifuldestinations#travelstoke#nomad#backpacking#neverstopexploring#iamtb#traveldeeper#welivetoexplore#exploremore#exploretocreate#travelling#traveler#travellife#wanderlust#roamtheplanet

A perfect end to a multi-day trek. — Lake Quilotoa reminded us of a combination of two of our favorite places back in the US: Crater Lake in Oregon and the coast of Northern California. It was actually an epic round-the-country road trip years ago that gave us the idea to backpack Latin America. We both feel a deep connection to this hemisphere. The landscape, wildlife, and people feel like home to us. Maybe some people travel to North or South America to feel far from familiarity, but I think if you’re from either of these continents, the other feels like an extension of home. We see home in the snow capped mountains, deep canyons, and rugged Pacific coastline. It’s living in a place where English and Spanish adopt words from each other, where migration between the two continents has existed for millennia. One day we plan to do long journeys across Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania, but when we set off for our first big trip, we knew we wanted to see the land we feel most connected to, the Americas. — Where do you feel at home? Do you identify most with a city, state, country, continent, hemisphere, or the world? — #visitecuador#experienceecuador#travelecuador#quilotoa#travel#travelblogger#globetrotter#traveltheworld#explorenewplaces#passionpassport#speechlessplaces#beautifulmatters#mytinyatlas#beautifuldestinations#travelstoke#nomad#backpacking#neverstopexploring#iamtb#traveldeeper#welivetoexplore#exploremore#exploretocreate#travelling#traveler#travellife#wanderlust#roamtheplanet#iamatraveler
