Hi, we’re Cara & Steph Bono, twin designers, photographers, and travelers. We’ve always been drawn to learning about the history and lifestyles of people from different places. The world is an absolutely incredible place with layers and layers of stories to experience and uncover. Staying in one place after having a taste of what else is out there is nearly impossible for us. Our travels began when we studied abroad in Florence Italy our sophomore year of college. This one decision ended up changing the course of our lives and during that time we’ve come to realize how we feel most at home on foreign soil.
Traveling has been the best teacher and life coach we’ve been fortunate enough to experience. It’s taught us lessons about self-confidence and awareness that we would’ve never been able to learn otherwise. Travel has played an incredibly essential role in our lives and has brought us such valuable experiences and lessons. Now we’d now love to share everything we’ve learned over the past 6 years (and continuing) of travel with other curious souls out there. We’ll share all of our past travel mistakes and how to avoid them, things we wished we knew before we set off somewhere, and all things that have truly helped us along our journey in hopes that it can help you too.
Curiosity has always been our main internal motivator. It’s not a stressful word that makes you feel the need to hustle constantly, and it doesn’t add unnecessary pressure to what you think you need to be achieving. It simply encourages you to ask questions, try new things, and keep a childlike sense of wonder for the world. As long as you stay curious, life-changing adventures will always find their way towards you.
