About Us.

Our mission is to share our early-retired, full-time, traveling lifestyle with you

Nomads. Vegan. Hikers. Let’s adventure together.

handsome hiking couple

Avid adventurers. Global circumnavigators. Hikers. Early retired. Full-time travelers.

We’re Chris and Steve. We’ve sold it all, retired from Corporate America, packed our two carry-ons, and fled out into the world.

We love to share hiking, housesitting and vegan-eating tips, while embracing our full-time traveling lifestyle. Together, we’ve visited over 62 countries and all 50 states and want to share tips with you about how to get out there and do the same.

Our annual budget is about $50,000 to travel the world full-time. The secret to our affordable lifestyle is through strategic accommodations via housesitting and Airbnb stays. We throw in travel hacking to make things interesting.

Be sure to read Chris’ adventures in her books:
