Happy 1 Month, GQ trippin!

Happy birthday to me! The last 30 days has been a trip.

Here’s what’s happened the last 30 days since we’ve launched — the things we’ve learned, people we’ve met and those we’ve connected with.

tweets and likes.

Quickly learning the world of twitter is a beast (in a good way). We’re still rookies in the twitter world of travel blogging.

Props to those we consider pros at this. It’s definitely work but not without a lot of love. Learning each and every day and enjoying every bit of it. #TTOT #FF 🙂

The site now has 186 Facebook fans and 116 Twitter followers!

Kieron and Amy | Don't Ever Look Back Kieron and Amy | Don’t Ever Look Back

I was Vegas for Labor Day! Guess who else were in Vegas the same weekend? Kieron and Amy from Don’t Ever Look Back! I invited Kieron and Amy for a night out clubbin’ with a few friends. Let’s just say, “What happens in Vegas.. doesn’t go on the blog.” Until we meet again. Safe trippin’ throughout the States you two!

Kieron and Amy are currently making their way across the US. Follow them @amzkiz.

checking off #30! in… oakland?!

Never thought I’d get to say this, anytime soon at least, but we just checked off #30 on our 30 before 30 — our bucket list of 30 experiences to have before we turn 30. And in Oakland of all places.

Benny | Fluent in 3 Months Benny | Fluent in 3 Months

We got invited to attended Travel Massive in Oakland this past week. Didn’t know what to make of it at first since it’s our first travel meet and greet but all that nervousness quickly disappeared the moment we met everyone.

We talked, we drank. Introduced and shared stories of our past travels.

I didn’t know it was Benny at first, but then he said something that clicked in my head, deja vu like I’ve heard it before. In this case, read it before. And then I did the unthinkable.. slapped his arm and yelled, “OMG! Benny!” Like I was star struck (I really was). Still embarrassed about the arm slapped. Sorry. :T

Know you’re not a big fan of bucket lists, hope you don’t mind being on ours because we think you’re pretty awesome. 🙂

How often do you get to say I met an Irish vegetarian who does not drink?!

Follow Benny @irishpolyglot. His next mission? To learn Klingon in time for the Star Trek convention!

what’s next?

We have BIG plans. One we can’t reveal just yet. But we will soon and can’t wait!

In the mean time, there is still lots we haven’t shared. Stay with us as we continue to revisit past travels, memorable moments and unforgettable indulgences from the last 7 years.

We’re happy to share our lives with you. Even more, excited to have you as readers. Whether you ‘Like’ us on Facebook, retweeted a link or commented on a post, we want you to know, we appreciate it. Thank you.

It has been a blast and this.. this is just the beginning. Thanks for trippin’ by.

    Thanks for the inclusion – was very random indeed that you had emailed me and included me on the bucket list, and then I randomly went to the meet up (heard about it two hours before it happened – I was actually about to collapse into bed after 9 days in the desert!).
    Was lovely to meet you two – thanks again for the ride!
