Aloha, I'm Lisa! I spent most of my young adulthood living on O'ahu, Hawai'i and now reside in Seattle, Washington. In 2014 I traded rubber “slippahs”, bikinis and kukui nut leis for warm boots, fleece scarves and REI gear when I moved to Seattle to get out of my little island comfort zone and to hike bigger mountains. I have lived in the Emerald City for three years, and this is where I met the love of my life and now Fiance, Sasha (Russian for Alex). I am a certified yoga instructor, self-proclaimed foodie and cook, and outdoor adventure-lover. I love games night at home with friends on a rainy Seattle Saturday night as equally as I love waking up at sunrise to hike to a far away mountain peak. Highly inspired by several books, including Tim Ferriss’ “The Four-Hour Workweek”, Robert Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”, and Rolf Potts’ “Vagabonding – An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel”, Sasha and I decided to take a big chance and make a life-changing move. We decided that adventure was calling and we must go. Because what you will learn outside the confines of four walls will be a far greater experience than anything else life can offer you. Sasha and I are both in our early thirties, so before we have kids, before we have a mortgage and increased responsibilities, we decided to act upon the travel itch in a somewhat unconventional way; in April of 2017 we left our corporate management careers, became minimalist by putting our life into a 65-liter backpack each, and took off on a “mini retirement” to travel the world. We visited ten countries and 50 cities in half a year, including: U.S. National Parks, Ecuador, Colombia, England, Latvia, Russia, Greece, Italy, France and Croatia. We are now back in the states figuring out the next chapter of our life together.
