About Us

Hey guys, just a snippet on how everything started. We met in the Philippines through friends who made us realize what we already knew and have in our hearts. Love.  We are loved.. (we know, that sounds a bit cheesy but,)  this is how our relationship grew. We live through the knowledge that we’re loved so we’d like to reciprocate it to the world.
Mark and I dated and had a long distance relationship for awhile. He asked me to marry him, I said yes and from there, got married, moved to Shanghai, China and eventually got an amazing French bulldog named Pepper. We’ve always thought of travelling for a year  even when we were dating, so after being married for a year we took a 2 month long trip to southwest China and had an amazing travel journey. We realized how great this trip was for our relationship so from then on, we’ve decided that we’ll have to take a year off to see the rest of the world. Finally after working for 3 more years, saving and being cooped up in our respective offices, we finally decided to fire our bosses and travel. For the full story check out this article that went viral, A year-long honeymoon: One traveling couple’s adventure
This blog is a place where we share our year’s worth of travel dates,  journals, photos, videos and some tips on how we were able take this adventure. This is also a way for our families and friends to keep track of where we’re at in our journey. We want you to join us as well and be a part of our sweet escapes. If you have tips and recommendations kindly hit us up through our contact page 🙂 We’d love to hear from you.

      Thanks for the message. Your our first commenter 🙂 We’re just starting our blog and haven’t really “launched” it yet. Going to get some work done once we’ve fired our bosses (quit our jobs) and start traveling at the end of this month.

        Wow! Sounds amazing! We will be quitting our jobs too at the end of the year to hitchhike across Asia. Good luck guys!

        • 365traveldates

          Let us know if you need any help in Asia. The Philippines is our home and we’ve done a bit of Asia.

            Thanks, guys! We are planning to hitch from Turkey, via Central Asia, China, Mongolia and Russia back to Europe. Have you been to any of these countries on top of China? Is there anything you’d particularly recommend? And do you know how to obtain multiple entry Chinese visa for 3 months?

          • 365traveldates

            Haven’t done any of Central Asia. In terms of China we’d say do the Silk Road to Beijing and then loop back through the Southwest- Guangxi, Yunnan and QinHai. Multiple entry shouldn’t be an issues just give them an itinerary and pay a little extra. The other thing you could do is just teach English and then you’ll have a work visa 😉

      Hey Matt,
      Thanks for the support. We’re feeling like our site is a bit of a mess and trying to move things over from .com to .org wordpress. We’ll be hitting a lot of the places on your list so hit us up if you have questions. Also since your American, if you haven’t already done so you guys should start travelhacking 🙂

    Love your story and your blog! This is what my husband and I hope to do too and we’re currently at the “working-to-save-money” stage! Thanks for being an inspiration!

    • http://365traveldates.com 365traveldates

      The working to save money is a great stage. So exciting with all the anticipation. Where yall from? If you’re American you can travel hack. Also you can probably crowdfund small things here and there like memberships to websites for work exchanges. So exciting that you guys are gonna do a big trip!

    Hi Camille and Mark! I recently read an article about your love story and travels. We are envious of your year-long travels :). We’ve been traveling quite a bit in the last couple of years. We recently went to Africa (tanzania & zanzibar) – I can’t believe you guys got robbed in Zanzibar. How scary is that! I am a new blogger and am working on my Africa posts. Check it out when you are available. http://www.worldtravelerlady.com. Best of luck to you and your wife!

      Thanks for stopping in, appreciate the love, support and message. No envy needed- we’re just doing what we know how. We imagine a lot of people are capable of the same and more. Africa is incredible but it has it’s ups and downs just like most (just more extreme). I’m on your blog now and cant wait to see some African posts haha. Keep writing World Traveler Lady!
