The initial goal of this blog was to provide our family members and friends back home a medium by which they could partake in and understand our experiences as we travel on the road. Since its creation in 2014, the goal of the blog has transformed as we have transformed. We hope this blog inspires you to explore our biological spaceship and all of the surprises it has to offer.
At the end of the day, we hope you find something meaningful in this blog. We have.

Lastly, we would like to thank those people that have cared for us throughout our nomadic life:
– Our parents and family have always supported our life choices and our decision to live as nomads.
– A big shout out to our friends. You have shown us how to be truly compassionate human beings. We would be destitute without you in our life.
– Our students. Without you, we wouldn’t be employed and wouldn’t be able to travel the world. Moreover and more importantly, you have taught us more about ourselves than anyone else. You challenge us, surprise us, and make us truly adore the world.
