We weren’t supposed to meet. Not only did we live a million miles away from each other, but multiple obstacles almost prevented us from being in the same place at the same time in February 2019. The universe decided that we would in fact meet, connect in an indescribable way, and ultimately become partners. Our dream began with many discussions revolving around thoughts and daydreams of “van life”. We were both determined to find out if our daydreams and ideas were even remotely accurate. We underestimated how wonderful the journey would be, as it was better than we could have imagined. We took that first leap when we saw much of what Colorado had to offer in six days through the windshield of an adventure van. We explored firsthand on our own terms, on our own timeline, at our own pace… and we haven’t looked back.
