It all started as most of the best ideas do: with late night conversations between friends. Within the universe of our college dorms, we’d spend hours talking about all the places we would someday see, and the adventures we would have.
The idea started to grow, and something deep within us kept beating like drums, calling us to take flight, jump into the void, and welcome uncertainty with open arms. We were sick with wanderlust, and we were gonna flip the finger at expectations, pack our bags, and heed the call with everything we had.
We’re two women traveling on a budget, kicking ass, and feverishly seeking adventure and disorientation.
Mariana is originally from Bogotá, Colombia, where she lived until she was 10. After that, she moved to Miami with her family, moved to Sarasota to study Sociology, did a semester abroad in Paris, went back to finish school, set off to teach English in Bordeaux, and is now back in Colombia working hard, living the life, surviving public transit, and figuring her future out. She loves reading, watching films, dancing tango, sunsets, and many other things. Her dreams are to visit every single country in the world, somehow figure out how to travel as a lifestyle, work for women’s rights, and create something.
Hamilton yearns to break free from the American South (where she isn’t from but to which she is currently bound) and venture into the world. With a heap of support from family and friends combined with a dash of gumption, her journey begins.
