How did you and your girlfriend meet?
So we were from the same class in the 11th grade in school. By then I tried my luck with her, but the results were not the best. So we both followed with our lives and I had other girlfriends and she had other boyfriends. About 4 years and 6 months ago, we meet again in some parties and I couldn’t resist her. hahaha.We have been together since then.
Did you go to college?
Yes, we both went to college. Rita has always been the best student from class. I was a medium student. And I was never in love with the degree I was taking.

Where will you start your journey?
So our flight is to Bangkok. So we will start in Thailand and then go to Cambodia, Vietnam etc…
Do you have a return flight?
No, we have no return flight and we don’t have the intention to come back in the nearest future. I think we will only come back to visit family and friends.
How do you plan your trips?
So everything starts with the destination. We always chose the places we want to go by word of mouth with other travelers and by doing some research on travel blogs and Instagram. After that, we always look for the cheapest flight using tools like Google flights, Skyscanner, Momondo, and Kayak. The rest of the trip is programmed based on the partnerships we have and also a lot is not planned to be completely honest with you. We love the adrenaline of adventure and the not knowing where we will be going to next. W just love traveling with the flow. Check the Resources page here to know all the tools we use during our trips.
Is it possible to travel full time?
Yes, it is. That is what we will be doing. And if we can you can too.
There are a lot of travel blogs out there. Will yours be different?
Yes, we will be sharing not only our high moments but also our low moments. Where everything goes wrong. To show you that there are also difficult times when doing this. Our main goal is to show and motivate others to follow their dreams. Our Instagram account @escapebusylife, is where we share most of our photos and videos.
