About Us

Our adventures began together in 2004 when we worked together on the ’04 Presidential election. We started dating after the election — aside from having each other, it was a time of great darkness.

Dating was Josh’s idea and Sasha reluctantly agreed. However, we each committed to leave the country after the election. Sasha left for Azerbaijan to teach political parties about how to run electoral campaigns. Josh departed on multi-month trip through Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia and Peru. But if that was the end of the adventure, we wouldn’t have this blog.

Despite the 7,000 miles between us, we kept in close touch (thank you internet tubes) and fell in love (that was all us). Josh visited her in Baku and we went on our first trip together to Istanbul, Turkey.

During 2011, we plan to visit over 20 countries in Southeast Asia, East Africa and the Middle East for a combination of work and pleasure. We are each committed to making the world a better place and enjoying life to the best of our abilities and we’re excited to be doing it together.

This blog chronicles of our adventures together.
