Hiya, and welcome to our blog! Yay!
We are Joel and Annchen – a South African-American husband-wife duo exploring the world one weekend at a time. Here’s the thing…we are super passionate about traveling the world, meeting new people, and having experiences far from home that widen our horizons, but – believe it or not – we are also passionate about other stuff. Joel is passionate about helping entrepreneurs and businesses grow online and Annchen is passionate about art, museology and social studies. So, here’s the punchline:
WE DID NOT QUIT OUR JOBS AND SELL EVERYTHING WE HAVE TO TRAVEL THE WORLD.
We do, however, try and make the most of short-term traveling. Not that there’s anything wrong with quitting your job and selling your stuff – I mean that’s the dream, right? But, it’s just not the reality for most. And, honestly, it doesn’t need to be! You just need to know how to make the most of a weekend, or a long-weekend, or maybe the occasional one week splurge. The world is out there, and it’s equally breathtaking whether you indulge in it for 6 months or 6 days.
We are short-term travelers and full-time explorers.
