The Landlocked Lovebirds

Who Are We?

About the landlocked Lovebirds

Hello!  We’re Darren and Stephanie, and we’ve been devoting our lives to traveling the world since our wedding in 2013.  Together we’ve seen over 20 countries in just five years.  We love to experience the food, culture, people, and sights that the world has to offer, so we spend every free minute scheming how to see another new place.  While we would love to hang up our day job hats and travel full-time, that hasn’t been in the cards for us just yet.  In the meantime, we try to take at least one international trip each year (two if we can swing it).  Thanks so much for following along on our adventures.  We hope that the videos, blogs, and resources found here inspire you to get out and see as much of this planet as you possibly can.
