Hello fellow travelers, bloggers, WWOOFers, wanders, volunteers, couchsurfers…
My name is Candice, and I started a journey of a lifetime on Dec 7th 2012. My fiancée, Jessica, and I left our home, sold our cars, donated all of our belongings to leave us with just our two backpacks and the ambition to see the world with open hearts and bright smiles. We saved up money for 4 months and set sail on the road of the east coast of the U.S – visiting 8 states before we left for Europe. We made sure to do some bucket list things before we left the states, such as watching the ball drop in NYC at Times square, walking up the stairs of the Lincoln Memorial and eating some fried shrimp in Boston.
We have swam in 30 degree weather in local hot springs of Iceland, couchsurfed with a brit in United Kingdom, and are currently WWOOFing in France. WWOOF, it’s where you work for a farm, winery or bed and breakfast for exchange for food and board.
We have been able to travel with less spilling of the money, and we have been able to meet extraordinary people and learn so much about our surroundings – due to Couchsurfing. Check out the website, it is such a great way to travel and to be immersed into people’s cultures and environments! No better way to learn of a city, town or state/country than staying with a local!
Follow us on our journey….
Update as of 2-24-2013
We are humbled and we are ready for another month on this beautiful farm in Marcellaz, France – in the French Alps. Then we head to Marseille, France – where we will be volunteering in a Bed and breakfast using WWOOF.
