We’re Laura and Lance. We met in New York City, moved to Philadelphia, and ultimately got married on a beach in the Bahamas.

We seek out interesting, unique, and fun destinations for authentic adventures. Because our time is limited, we focus on convenience and packing in as much as possible on our trips (just take a look at our itineraries). Do we miss a few things? Sure. But we see a lot more than we ever dreamed we could. And it’s always good to leave something for the next trip!
