My boyfriend and I quit our corporate jobs and used our savings to buy one-way tickets. We plan to visit 13 countries in 6 months.

We are Kim and Vinny, two semi-normal people who left our Corporate America jobs to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Living in Los Angeles, Kim was the Director of Partnership Sales for AEG Worldwide and Vinny was the Director of Finance for Playboy Enterprises. We have been together for five years so the natural next step was to get married, buy a house and have kids. However, we walk to the beat of our own drum and decided to use our savings to explore the world instead. Some might think we are crazy but we couldn’t be happier to begin this new chapter. <br /> <br /> This journey started on January 13, 2016. We moved out of our house, put our entire lives into a POD, sold our cars, and packed whatever we could into carry-on backpacks. This is so out of our element, but that’s what will make it a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Exposing ourselves to new languages, new cultures, new religions, new lifestyles and best of all, learning new things about ourselves and each other.<br /> <br /> The casual plan is to visit thirteen countries over six months starting in India and eventually ending in Japan (with Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines and China in between). The most exciting part is that we have a one-way ticket booked so we will just wait and see where the wind takes us. Anything and everything is possible.<br /> <br /> Our goal is make you laugh, cry, dance, cringe and sing while reading our stories. We followed our hearts and we hope you will follow our soles.
