 We have been together for almost 5 years and travel and food has been a staple of our relationship from the beginning! Our first trip together was to Europe and since then we’ve been hooked! We’ve visited many places and after we got married this past July, we decided that we only have one life and didn’t want anything holding us back from our dreams, so we quit our jobs and sold everything to travel the world! 

Dean is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. His cooking passion is international cuisines. Dean loves to travel to new places and learn the cooking culture so he can bring it back and teach people about the foods native to each place he goes. He loves to experiment and loves to see the look on people’s faces as they enjoy his food! 

Julie has always loved photography. She has a creative spirit that channels itself through the lens of a camera. Ever since her first trip to Europe, she’s been hooked on travel and the memories and experience it creates. Her goal in life is to show people her love of travel through the photos she takes along the way. 

What an honor and amazing experience it has been to be featured in Travel & Leisure! We are so flattered by all the response and love from everyone. We are having the time of our lives and wouldn’t trade it for anything! Since then we’ve been featured in two more news outlets, the New York Post and Daily Mail! So incredibly awesome!

Take a look at our first blog post to see what this blog is all about! 

**We are using Ebates and Hotels.com to book everything we do! We get cash back from Ebates and earn free nights on Hotels.com so you get rewarded for doing what you would normally do anyway! On Hotels.com, they provide excellent service and will match hotel prices if you find something cheaper elsewhere. If you stay 10 nights, you get 1 free and if you become a gold member (30 stays in 1 year) you get early access to deals and special rates. Also 24/7 service. On Ebates, while the percentage cash back varies depending on the store, you legitimately get cash back on almost every store you would shop online for anyway and get a check every quarter with your savings. They also have special coupon codes to get discounts on the site that you can’t get otherwise. In 1 year we’ve gotten back $350 cash back. That’s nothing to sneeze at! We get credit if you use our links (hyperlinked in the names) and would love if you could help us out! But really, you’re helping yourself too!!**
