ABOUT US

Gravy  [grey-vee] / noun
The thing that adds flavor to life.

Growing up in Portugal came with its perks, namely: easy access to low-cost airlines, and the ability to travel to any European country in a couple of hours. However, the annual 2-week vacation trips to neighboring countries became predictable and we wanted more. We longed-for clashing cultural exchanges somewhere on the other side of the world.

But then, as we started to fit the mold of responsible adults (long workweeks, car payments, and back pain) the more traveling the world seemed unfeasible.

The decision to Travel Long Term

We decided to stop waiting and just go for it in 2016.
With humble travel qualifications, we did what needed to be done, starting by:

• Saving money
• Travel planning
• Telling the family
• Quitting our jobs
• Vaccinate

Fast-forward to now: it was the best decision we could have made! So much so, that we kept doing it.
