Who are We?

We are Dan and Tanya, married emergency department RNs in rural Northern California. We eloped in Yosemite Valley, and had our wedding reception at the local trampoline park… which actually reflects our personalities pretty well! We have a home filled with kids and dogs and after pulling 12 hour night shifts in the ER, we enjoy traveling near and far. This blog is intended to share some of our antics, travel tips, gear reviews, and planning ideas with y’all. Come join our journey!

We enjoy all kinds of travel from Caribbean cruises to backpacking to road trips and everything in between.
