Our current trek

We just finished our 386-day journey throughout Asia! With a rough plan of where we wanted to go as well as these goals in mind, we left home with only the backpacks and what little we packed on our backs. From summer 2014 to fall 2015, everyday has been both challenging and rewarding.

Our Asia Year in Review has a comprehensive look back on our epic adventure. Read about our top Asia destinations as well as a breakdown of our budget and exactly how much it cost us. Here’s some “wisdom” we gathered along the way!

Starting in Hong Kong and Macau, our Asia Year saw us extensively travel through Taiwan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, MyanmarNepalIndia, Sri Lanka, Maldives, the PhilippinesIndonesia, and Malaysia. Check out the Destination tab for all the places! We look forward to growing the list and recording our every move.
