For those of you who don't know us, nice to meet you, we are Dan and Bailey!
We are just another couple of crazy backpackers, likely, not so different from yourself! Our list of places to see around the world is constantly growing and our passion for living an exciting life full of adventure and culture fuels us!
We are just your regular twenty-something backpackers. We travel on a budget, we like a good party, and we are suckers for a funny travel story. In fact, you may have already ran into us in a hostel, chatting with fellow travelers over a beer (we like to talk as much as we like to write!)
We are from different corners of the world ourselves, Daniel is from Australia and Bailey is from Canada. Naturally, we met while travelling! As a couple, our biggest common interest has always been travel and our sense of adventure.
What do we love most about travel?
The adventure! The thrill that comes along with experiencing something totally new. We are constantly pushing the limits and stepping outside of our comfort zones, whether that means taking local transport in a developing country or jumping out of airplane.
The amazing thing about travel is that everyday is a new experience for us. Learning about unique cultures and seeing some of the most beautiful corners of the world makes life that much more exhilarating.
Why is our blog called “Destinationless Travel?
We think that the best kind of travel is endless, or without a final destination. Travel is all about the journey, not just the destination.
As we like to say, “you can’t get lost if you don’t have a destination!”
What are some of your travel highlights?
We both had the most amazing time backpacking in South America. Literally, we still talk about it everyday and are planning to go back. Somewhere between celebrating Carnival in Rio in Brazil, skydiving in Bolivia, scuba diving on San Andres Island, and hiking the Torres del Paine we fell in love with continent.
That being said, we have had some incredible travel experiences all over the world. Off the top of our head some of our favourites would be:
- Hiking the Acatenango Volcano in Guatemala
- A food tour in Hong Kong
- Scuba diving in Cenotes in Mexico
- Bungee jumping in Colombia
- Seeing wild crocodiles in Australia
- An alpine hike in New Zealand
- Checking out the Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina
- Swimming with wild Sea Lions in Peru
- Watching the sunset on the Salt Flats in Bolivia
Where are we now?
Now (September 2019) we are in Edmonton, Canada! Honestly, we are using our time in Edmonton to catch up on some work (our blog and our other writing jobs.) We only have a couple of weeks here before we are off traveling again!
Where are we going next?
We are super excited to be spending Day of the Dead (aka Halloween) in Mexico! It’ll be parties, beaches, and lots of culture – sounds fantastic, doesn’t it?!
And finally, we are finishing off 2019 with a bang in Patagonia! We’ve just locked in the Torres del Paine 8-day hike which we know will be epic!
In all honesty, the new year is a bit of a blur right now. We’ve made the decision not to plan anything else for now and just see what happens. Maybe we will stay in South America, or maybe, we will head over to Australia! Who knows at this stage…you’ll have to follow us to find out!
Thanks for following us on our adventures!
