our story

I’m Rachel Whitaker. My husband, Ryan, and I are an LDS couple in our mid-20s. Both of us are BYU grads. Ryan is an industrial designer. I am a copywriter turned freelance writer/editor.<br><br>

In July 2011, we decided on a whim to sell nearly everything and move to Europe for 5 months. Along our journey, we pet-sat dogs, cats, and indoor rabbits; escaped crazy home owners; and enjoyed traditional travel to a number of locations in England, Scotland, France, and Germany.<br><br>

We returned to the U.S. in January 2012. Now we’re plotting our next grand adventure on the cheap.
