We are Julia and Victor and we've been getting lost in foreign countries since 2003. We spend all of our vacation days, long holidays, and an occasional Wednesday wandering the world.
Victor is a complicated man. He is an attorney at a large firm who lives a minimalist lifestyle. He speaks four languages but fails at communicating with cats on daily basis. He likes nature and hiking but refuses to go camping. Victor loves living in the United States but will spend every vacation day on foreign soil. He loves the idea of spontaneous travel but spends months perfecting each itinerary. His interests include art, architecture, jazz and blues music, learning Spanish, speed walking around the neighborhood while listening to podcasts, and cheering on all Chicago sports teams.
Julia is a very simple person. She is a network administrator who loves tinkering with everything electronic. Julia speaks two languages, but just barely, and consequently has learned to mime and point her way out of any situation. She has no sense of direction, and so she confidently follows Victor anywhere he goes, which usually happens to be a foreign country. She has a terrible memory and to compensate, spends all trips taking endless pictures. Her interests include ceramics, rollerblading, swimming, walking cats around the neighborhood, and ranting about random topics to bewildered friends and family.
Meet Our Team
Every long weekend and every day of PTO, we have to make the choice between staying at home with two cats or hitting the road with a backpack. It's not an easy choice, but a clear one - after all, this is a travel blog, not a cat blog.
Milo is 9 years old and was found as a kitten in a supermarket parking lot, hiding under the hood of a random car. His interests include meowing pitifully next to his food dish, wrestling with Lucky, and spinning around in chairs.
Lucky is 9 years old and was adopted from an animal shelter when he was around 2 years old. Lucky enjoys meowing pitifully when being picked up, showing his love by scratching your face when you sleep and grooming Milo.
Small backpack for one-week trips and larger backpack for two-week trips. Backpacks enjoy being full of dirty laundry, thrown in the back of minibusses, dragged along dusty roads, and being squeezed into overhead bins.
