Welcome to Roam Curious!
Allow me to (re)introduce ourselves – my name is Karen! Here is my face.
….And here is my boyfriend, Jose. Here is his face!
October(ish) 2018 marks five years of Jose and I dating (!) and we’re basically two peas in a pod, or two layers repeated on one extravagant red velvet cake, what have you. After living in New Orleans together for 25 months we’ve decided to take one year off from working to travel the country, visit National Parks and figure out not where we need to be, but where we want to be. Our journey officially began on September 1st, 2018. Here’s a timeline for where we’ve been for the 2018 leg of our trip.
September-November – Brasstown, North Carolina (John C. Campbell Folk School)
Thanksgiving – Oaxaca, Mexico
Early December – Chicago, IL
Mid-December to January – Annapolis, MD
January 10th, 2019 to ? – THE WORLD (er, the natural wonders of the US of A)
For reference – I’m a writer and can puttputt around on WordPress all day with no issues trying to convince myself that I know how to format a website and write blogs. Therefore, I’ll likely be managing the site. I’m going to try to poke Jose continuously to write a blog at least once a week during our travels to give you his impressions.
For your reference:
- We do not own a fancy Nikon camera. Or a hip Instaxx. Or have the charger anymore for a point and shoot digital camera (work in progress). Therefore, have patience if photos are not super epic.
- When traveling, Jose and I love discovering odd businesses, restaurants and monuments off the beaten path. We hope to share them with you!
- Jose might write a lot about hiking, camping and how all the gear we got has been working for us. I might write a lot about biking while memorizing Britney Spears songs. Who knows.
