About the wanderers – Richard and Krista
This site will document our trip around the world! Beginning in Seattle, Washington – USA in March, 2014. We hope this site will serve as a source of entertainment, travel advice and perhaps a little inspiration for your own travels! Our goal throughout our wanderings will be to maintain a detailed log of the many places we visit and our experiences and adventures, as well as tips and tricks, along the way. Do you wander much?
I’ve always enjoyed delving into new things, at one time or another I have been a sailor, mountain climber, backpacker, rock climber, writer, and photographer. Having traveled to Japan, Europe and all over North America I’d gotten a taste of world travel, and always wanted more. Krista and I have always talked about one day seeing the world, so when I found out a year early that my office would be closing, it turned out to be the perfect opportunity to plan a trip, and see the world!
My love of travel and learning about other cultures began in earnest with two study abroad programs during college, in Peru and Spain. Following college I spent almost two years working for a hotel in Santiago, Chile before returning to Seattle. The travel bug has come calling again, so I embraced the opportunity to take a break from my career to pursue my lifelong goal of travel. I am fascinated by the amazing places this planet has to offer and like researching how to do it simply and affordably. I am looking forward to spending a year on the road attempting to share the world’s myriad sights, sounds, smells and flavors with you!
