Hey, there! Thanks for checking out Byte-Size Travel!
We’re Kim and Kyle: Your typical late-20s couple trying to find our place in the world—while exploring as much of it as we possibly can!
If you’re here, you probably love travel just as much as we do. Wanderlust is one of your biggest drivers—compelling you to visit new and exciting places. You’ve found a partner who shares your zest for life, and your love for all things travel. You crave your next adventure. You plan tirelessly to make sure you get as much out of every single moment as possible. You count down the days. And then you go, with all your heart—and your camera gear!
But you always come back home. It’s a comfortable place. You’ve got a good job and a steady paycheck. It’s a hard life to leave. We know—we totally get it!
We have dreams of jetting off into the great unknown. Packing a bag and never looking back. We have a lengthy list of landmarks we want to see, experiences we want to try, food we want to taste, and cities we want to live in.
But we haven’t made that leap to a nomadic lifestyle. Several years ago, we had serious ambitions, saving and planning for a yearlong trip around the world, but we ended up pursuing new job opportunities and paying off all of our student loan debt.
We’ve been fortunate in our careers to find good jobs that give us enough fulfillment to keep us in place, and enough dispensable income to travel every chance we get. It’s a situation we just can’t justify giving up.
But that means our travels are limited to those precious weeks of vacation time, just like everybody else. We’re forced to explore places with an abbreviated itinerary and a round-trip plane ticket.
We know how important it is to experience the world and all it has to offer. That’s why we want to encourage you to make the most of the vacation time you have, too.
Come explore the world with us. Little by little. Bit by bit.
“We travel because we need to, because distance and difference are the secret tonic of creativity. When we get home, home is still the same. But something in our mind has changed, and that changes everything.”
