We’re Steve and Noelle and we write this travel blog dedicated to showing how we’re choosing to live more fully in each moment and how YOU CAN TOO. Our lives may not always be pretty, but it’s our adventure of a lifetime. We hope you’ll follow along with us. Your comments and emails always make our days and bring smiles to our hearts.
In our early 50’s, we’ve sold our house, sold our cars and quit our fantastic jobs. We’ve placed almost all of our belongings into storage…so we’re effectively homeless. We’re taking at least two years off work to hike, backpack, eat lots of food and explore the world. We not only want to share our experiences with you, we also want to share the best ways you can take steps towards your own adventure, whether big or small. We’ll share places & adventures we’ve experienced, as well as some tips, inspiration and best travel practices we’ve learned along the way.
We’ve raised five kids and a handful of dogs between us and now we have the joy of seeing our children raising their own families. It’s a beautiful sight! Both sets of our parents instilled strong work ethics into us, so we thought we’d follow the norm and work till retirement age and then maybe do a little exploring “then”. What we didn’t count on was the life changing events of some heart issues Steve experienced. Combined with the death of Noelle’s mom, we sat down to re-evaluate. We chose to dramatically change our lives in order to live in the moment. From thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail to beginning to explore Southeast Asia, we set out for adventure. To be sure, Covid19 has had other ideas for us, as has the loss of another parent, Alzheimer’s and all the challenges & rewards that aging parents bring. Our hearts are full, our minds are open and we plan to continue living fully despite what life hands us!
