A little bit about us...

Our obsession with travel flourished as we planned our 20 day honeymoon to Europe with the ultimate challenge placed on ourselves: maximize our time, minimize our belongings.

We quickly discovered that this was going to take some planning.

In the months leading up to our departure, we spent many date nights on the couch with a bottle of wine, earmarked guidebooks, and our computers a-buzzing, meticulously researching the best way to enjoy our time while travelling. Everything from a packing plan and restaurant ideas, to off the beaten path b&bs, and everything in between.

It. Was. Worth. It.

Somewhere between sipping Chianti Classicos deep in Tuscany and lounging on the beach in Monterosso, we decided this trip was too good to keep to ourselves. And so the idea for this blog was born.

Our mission is to make trip planning easier for others, by sharing the experiences, advice, and products that made our trip unforgettable.

Just because we spent hours planning and researching, doesn't mean our readers have to.

So join us in being lifelong flâneurs -- we can't wait for the next adventure.

The Traveling Flâneurs


PS: What is a flaneur?

In the weeks preceding our trip we came across the notion of a flâneur and it heavily influenced the way we traveled. Our distilled definition is someone who has a rough travel plan, but is open to new experiences along the way.
