Travel is a way of life. Even before we met, we both wanted to travel the world.
So, we’re here to help you do exactly the same thing - whether it’s from your own home or as a digital nomad.

Hello!

Our friends call us Jenny & Bradley.
Guess that means you can call us Jenny & Bradley too! :)

We are the creators of this website & blog - and we are glad you found us.

Our story begins before we even met, with our desires to travel the world. Jenny had already taught English in Japan for 6 1/2 years and had already traveled to quite a few different countries. Bradley had been deployed to a few countries while serving in the military and then visited and lived in a few others after his service. It was fate that we met in Celebration, Florida in May of 2016 - and we became engaged 9 months later after exploring a number of trips together during that time:

• Los Angeles, California
• Austin, Texas
• Chicago, Illinois
• Savannah, Georgia
• St. Augustine, Florida
• and St. Pete Beach, Florida

After our engagement, we went on a slightly bigger trip with Bradley’s family, to explore Switzerland! It was so amazing that we decided that we couldn’t just stop there. So, after engraving our wedding bands in Disney font with "WE ARE EXPLORERS!”, we took our honeymoon on a Disney Western Caribbean Cruise in December of 2017, exploring:

• Playa Del Carmen, Mexico
• Falmouth, Jamaica
• and Disney’s Castaway Cay, Bahamas

But, this only heightened our desire to continue travelling. So, once we returned home we started planning our escape. We:

• booked the first Airbnb of our endless adventure in Paris, France,
• set up an income stream using blogging and investments,
• put in our notices at work,
• sold just about all of our belongings,
• and decided to travel the world for the rest of our lives!

Over time, we just kept adding more places to the list.
And only a little into our second month of travel we found out that our adventure was going to be a little more exciting.
We were expecting our first child in February of 2019!

Since then, Waltoshi was born during our travels in Cape Town, South Africa!

This little Explorer loves to go on adventures too!
You can even follow our adventures, and join us along the way, by becoming an Explorer as well!

We know that Travel isn’t Easy for Everyone

Maybe you have a comfortable life that allows you to travel as much as you would like. If so, that is awesome!

Sadly, that doesn't apply to everyone. Some people work multiple jobs to try to afford it, but never really can.

“The more we associate experience with cash value, the more we think that money is what we need to live. And the more we associate money with life, the more we convince ourselves that we're too poor to buy our freedom.” - Rolf Potts, Vagabonding

“People don’t want to be millionaires — they want to experience what they believe only millions can buy.” - Tim Ferriss, The 4-Hour Workweek

Well, we’re not millionaires and we are experiencing a life that we thought only millions of dollars could buy!

We've earned our freedom.

SO, YOU DON'T NEED TO BE A MILLIONAIRE EITHER!

We created Eat Wander Explore to:

MAKE TRAVEL EASY

and to make this type of life possible for everyone else too.

It’s time that we give you the grand tour of our website

We are assuming that you came here because you have an interest in traveling,
in one way or the other, to new and exciting locations.

Well, Eat Wander Explore is here to help!

Our website is broken up into 3 main areas:

  1. Travel from Home

  2. Destinations & Itineraries

  3. Travel Forever

#1 - Travel from Home

In this section, we focus on traveling in a unique way - from home!

"I would love to travel but I cannot find the time or money to do it."
“I've never traveled internationally and don't even know where to start.”

Here is what sets us apart from other blogs:

Staycation Nomads: We have been hard at work crafting unique travel experiences for you which we call “Staycation Nomads”. You may have heard of a “Staycation” before, where you spend your vacation time staying at home or even traveling around in your local town or city instead of going somewhere different. Well, this section is different because we help you experience what travel is like in another country instead - from your own home, or hometown!

  • Learn the Culture and Customs of a different country

  • Cook unique recipes from that country in your own kitchen

  • Take historical and cultural tours using a combination of books and videos

  • and much much more!

Taking the First Steps: In this section we cover topics that most people say are preventing them from traveling - AND we share an exhaustive amount of information on how you can best prepare yourself to fix these issues to finally get you on that trip you’ve always dreamed of going on. It is a transitory section to help people move from the “Travel from Home” section to the “Destinations & Itineraries” section. Here, we cover common issues like:

  • Saving Money to Travel - “I don’t have enough money!”

  • Finding Time to Travel - “I don’t have enough vacation days!”

  • Making Travel Planning Simple - “It’s just too complex to figure out!”

  • Traveling with Kids - “I don’t think it’s possible with children!”

Start Traveling Blog: In this blog we cover topics that help answer the vital questions that you would have prior to traveling. Many unique situations exist, and we do our best to answer them. Some of our upcoming topics will include:

  • Heritage Travel - Traveling Back to where your Ancestors Came From

  • Retiring Overseas - How to make your money last longer

  • Medical Tourism - Total Travel Packages that cost Less than at Home

  • Traveling around Europe for more than 90 days

#2 Destinations & Itineraries

In this section, we focus on making your actual travel experiences as memorable as possible!

“I’m just looking for an itinerary to make travel planning easier.”

Here is what sets us apart from other blogs:

Our Blogs: We have designed a number of itineraries from each of the countries that we’ve been to help you decide what you can do while in a particular country. We go above and beyond to find the best places and things to do in every country that we visit - to make your travels easier and more affordable!

  • Primarily focused on things you can do with small children or in your golden years

  • Leaves the late nights wide open for you to plan on your own

  • Light to moderate levels of adventurous experiences: Eating, Wandering, and Exploring these areas

  • Articles that give you unique tips on situations that you may come across

Blog Search Engine: Most bloggers, like us, have only been to 20-50 different countries - so they only feature articles from those countries. Unlike other blogs, we want you to be able to find travel information on our website for wherever you are going. Our hope is that this feature adds enough value to you that you’ll keep coming back to the site where you know you can find it all in one place - at Eat Wander Explore!

  • Hundreds of other travel blogs, itineraries, and helpful advice from dozens of other travel bloggers

  • Easy to use interactive maps and travel blog search bar

  • Expands our reach to almost every single country in the world

  • Don’t see what you need? Let us know and we’ll put it up within a week - guaranteed!

OUR SEARCH BAR: Like Google®, but only the most amazing travel blogs!

 
 

#3 Travel Forever

In this section, we focus on making your actual travel experiences as memorable as possible!

“I would love to travel the world non-stop, just like you guys.”

Here is what sets us apart from other blogs:

The FREE Nomad Guide: This guide is designed to guide you down one of two paths - building an income that you can earn from anywhere in the world or finding jobs in other countries.

The FREE Nomad MBA: This guide is designed to help you learn all of the skills that are necessary for becoming a digital nomad and working independently.

  • Startup Basics & Digital Marketing

  • Learning How to Design & Develop Websites and Apps

Travel Forever Blog: This blog is designed to answer all of your pre-nomad life as well as tips and tricks on how to make your nomadic life exactly what you imagined it could be.
