Together we created Two Sided Travels
Over this next year our main focus is to see, try, and learn new things while on the road. And in our downtime, we created Two Sided Travels to document these adventures and share them with you! By doing so, we hope to inspire you to get out there and go somewhere you have not yet been, or at least live vicariously through us.
However, we want to make something clear from the beginning: we are not doing this to just tell you what we have been up to. We want to hear from you along the way! Have something to say about your own experience traveling? Then feel free to leave a comment. Have a question about traveling or taking a gap year? Send us an email. Are you currently taking your own gap year? Or have you taken one in the past? We would love to hear about your experience!
At our age, you can imagine the looks we get when we tell someone we have been dating for seven years. In fact, we bet you can even guess the first question people ask us after they find out we have been dating for so long (hint: it involves $$$ and a shiny ring).
But in all honesty, we try not to spend our time planning for the future. Instead, we prefer to focus on the present. However, to really understand our relationship it is a good idea to have an understanding of our past. This page is dedicated to the first seven years of our relationship.
Seventeen years later and we are finally done with school. The majority of American students spend their senior year of college applying and interviewing for jobs. Eager to get out in the “real world” and start paying off their student debt, most students hope to have a job set up before they graduate. If not a job, then they are likely applying for either grad school, law school, and med school.
Very rarely do American students consider taking time off after school. They might be able to secure a start date towards the end of summer, but if they aren’t working come mid-August it usually means they haven’t been able to get a job. For us, it is going to be a different story. Not only do we not plan on having a job by mid-August, but we plan on taking an entire year off.
