We've been traveling together for 38 years - our first trip, our honeymoon - and have been writing the blog for just under a decade. Calling ourselves The Scout (Joel scouts out the deals and destinations) and The Scribe (I am the former journalist and blog writer) our aim is to entertain armchair travelers and inspire others to expand their comfort zones and visit those destinations they've always hoped to see. We quit our '8 - 5' work world 20 years ago so that we could travel further, stay longer, and visit more of the world. Last year we sold our home of 30 years in the Seattle suburbs and moved as full time ex pats to Greece. It is a great launch pad for travel to destinations on this side of 'the pond.'
