About us

Thanks for visiting our travel blog! We’re Erin and Jan, newlyweds taking a mid-career hiatus from our day jobs to travel the world.

Join us as we embark on a year-long journey focused mostly on Asia. We also plan to visit parts of Australia, New Zealand and South America — and maybe more. It all depends on how far our savings and travel points take us.

The blog will eventually include details about how we ultimately decided to take this trip, leaving (for now) perfectly respectable jobs. It also includes highlights of all our planning before we bought one-way tickets to Japan.

If you have any suggestions on where we should go, people we should see, or questions to ask, please contact us or leave a comment below. Our aim is to share our honest experiences and learn from yours, and to maybe be a resource for people looking to do something similar.

Come along on our pre-tirement!
