We’re Sam & Comly!
Our relationship lends itself to the perfect travel blog: a combination of extensive planning and a “make the most out of any situation” attitude.
We met in New York City, at Ampersand, a cozy bar on Third Avenue, on a gloomy December night in 2018. Within 3 days of officially dating, we booked our first 10 day vacation together. It was the start of a global romance.
In 2019, we moved in together in New York, and in 2020, we started this travel blog. Shortly after, we were informed that both of our jobs would be permanently remote. On a trip to Lake Tahoe in California in September of 2020, Comly proposed. In May of 2021, we got married at a summer camp and when our lease expired traded in our home base in the city for an extended honeymoon on the road. We bought a Tesla Model 3 and hit the road, becoming digital nomads.
We spend our days working to make the world a better place – Comly in climate change and Sam in healthcare. While we bop around to different destinations, our families are based in the northeast of the US, mostly NYC and CT. On weekends, you might find us in the mountains, on a beach, or reveling over a meal with “wow factor” in a culinary capital.
We’re excited to share practical travel tips and tricks as well as stories from our getaways.
