Quiet, peaceful moments spent listening to waves crash on the beach are some of the best life has to offer. For us, there’s nothing quite like that in-the-moment type of serenity. But that doesn’t mean we don’t like jumping out of planes or scaling record-setting volcanoes every once in a while.
Mindfulness is a priority. Yet, we still crave discovery of the unknown and the occasional adrenaline rush.
We’ve worked hard to perfect the recipe for that special mix of tranquility and excitement. Now, armed with a set of guiding principles and the support of one another, we’ve made it a sustainable reality. And we haven't compromised our values along the way.
How do we do it?
Our answer is slow travel. This approach to travel brings us peace while allowing us to embrace our inner drive for adventure.
Now that we’ve managed to design a lifestyle that works for us, we want to help you do the same. We are Nolan and Melissa, and for the past two years, we’ve been traveling the world together with no end in sight.
In 2016, I ditched cubicle life and made the world my office. I sold everything but the essentials and moved from the US to the Canary Islands. I’ve been through all the highs and lows of uprooting your life and leaving everything you know and love behind.
Melissa has been traveling full-time since she graduated from college. Forever a wanderluster, her passion for travel landed her in the Canary Islands, too.
When the two of us crossed paths in the Spanish archipelago off the coast of western Africa, I was far from vegan. During the last two years, my diet has become primarily plant-based. What started as a simple, health-motivated dietary change has become a way of life.
Melissa has been vegan on and off for many years. At the present time, she doesn’t consume animal products, nor does she use products derived from, or tested on, animals. When it comes to veganism she’s experienced it all.
We’re living proof that everyone has a different path. No matter where you’re coming from, it’s possible to build a life in alignment with your values. Whether it’s travel, veganism, or a little bit of both, our mission is to make the journey easier for you.
