Most of our travels begin with one of us proclaiming, “going where no man has gone before!” as we march down a cobbled street or well-worn hiking path. Though somewhat ironic, we seek adventure in even the ordinary places, and enjoy taking a side trip off the beaten path. Over the past 5 years, we’ve taken trips throughout the US, Asia, Australia, Europe, and gone to Hawaii what some might consider a few too many times. We recently moved from sunny Los Angeles, to historic Cambridge, UK. We’re taking advantage of our new home base to discover Europe, and are keeping a keen eye out for trails, beaches and pastries in places no man (or at least not every man) has gone before.
Aaron loves big cities, Tom Brady (really all things sports) and Vespas. As a true Californian, he finds his way to the beach wherever he goes. This last year, he pursued his MBA at the University of Cambridge, which prompted the move from LA to the UK. His navigation skills are like a super power; we never seem to get lost whether we’re trekking through mountains, crisscrossing London on the Tube, or going where no man has gone before.
As an Arizona native, Kelly grew up with a love for hiking and the outdoors. It took moving to Los Angeles for her to realize that summer temperatures of 110F and above (44 in Celsius) are not normal, and moving to the UK to see that she was pretty spoiled by the almost constant 75F (23C) and sunny forecast in LA. She loves baking, mostly because she loves eating. Travel is a combination of all the things she loves most, especially embarking on new adventures with Aaron and Hudson.
Since moving from the US to the UK at six weeks old, Hudson has been racking up stamps in his passport. He just hit 12 countries before his first birthday and recently boarded his 33rd flight. He loves making new friends everywhere he goes, taking long naps while being carried on hikes, and has an impressive track record for scoring free stuff.
