Kristina and David have been traveling around the world together for over 30 years. Shortly before they both turned 30, they set off on an around the world trip which sparked the genesis of this site in 1998.
In 1999, when the concept of “blogging” was still young, they were written about in the NY Times, listed as some of the first “Techo-Nomads” to travel with a laptop and write about it as they did so. Since that trip, they have continued to travel as much as possible. Read about how travel has changed in the last 20 years here.
Kristina has visited over 40 countries and credits her passion for food and her intrepid spirit to her mother and to a trip to Mexico at age 16 when she found herself buying tacos through a train window. She also thanks David and his family, who took her on her first trip to Europe, for sparking her obsession with travel. Kristina is a former professional chef, who still works in the restaurant business. She also has a food blog called Former Chef.
David has been traveling his whole life and has visited over 50 countries. He particularly remembers traveling to Europe at the age of 6 and insisting on climbing every church tower he saw. He’s lived in both Switzerland and Spain and speaks both French and Spanish fluently. David is an elementary school teacher and tries to use his travels to teach his students about the larger world around them.
About this site:
This site spans many years and many design formats. Any trips prior to 2007 are in Netscape Composer (yes, scary, sorry), trips from 2007-2009 were created in Dreamweaver. In 2010 the site moved to a WordPress blog format to allow for more interactivity with the readers. For old trips, comments can be left on the main pages leading to links to those trips.
