Rule #1: Never say Wanderlust

I had no idea what to write in this first travel blog post as the actual travel­ling has not start­ed yet. So I did the obv­ious thing and crack­ed a beer while Googl­ing “couple travel blogs” for in­sp­ir­ation. One of those was a mis­take (it wasn’t the beer). Now, faced with both the fear of having abso­lutely no content for this post and my awe of the ove­r­whelm­­ing number of com­plex and feeling-­filled blogs out there, I took the easy way out and creat­ed a list of what this blog will not be:

  1. This travel blog will never contain the word “wanderlust,” the phrase “living our dreams,” or any­thing suggesting more than a loose adherence to norms of bodily hygiene.
  2. It won’t contain queasy travel quotes overlaid on stock images of nature, cities, or people who look kind of differ­ent from us.
  3. It won’t contain any couple pictures and couple stories or anything about how we are soul mates or how we like vegan brunch (we don’t). We’ll mostly be letting our families know that we are alive and un-exploded

With that out of the way, here are some things you can expect to see:

  1. A lot of pictures of what we are up to in Asia.
  2. Stories we hope are worth sharing.
  3. A few travel tips that we pick up along the way.
  4. Pictures of food (the one travel-blog cliché we’re OK going whole hog on).
  5. Frequent and emphatic reassurances that we are not exploded, kidnapped, nor dis­membered.
  6. Pictures of puppies.
