We are Emily and Ethan, a twenty-something couple embarking on an extensive journey through East and Southeast Asia (and possibly further). We’ve put this blog together to stay connected with friends and family, as well as share our travel tips and experiences.

Our desire is to share as much as we can about traveling cheaply – it’s hard enough to find the time, let alone the funds, to travel. But with a year of saving, research, and planning, we’ve been able to put together an adventurous trip through some of the most beautiful areas of the world. This is being accomplished through a number of methods – we both have side hustles that let us make a bit of money while in transit, and we’re pursuing inexpensive room and board options though Workaway, CouchsurfingHostelworld, and STA Travel.

Here’s some info about us individually:
