Introduction
Took a round the world trip, then forgot to stop traveling. By living a simpler life with few possessions we are able to travel longer and further than we ever thought possible.  

Winner of the 2013 Lowell Thomas Silver Award for Best Travel Blog from the Society of American Travel Writers Foundation.

In addition to our blog Changes in Longitude, we write a recurring travel column for The Philadelphia Inquirer/philly.com, as well as other print and online publications on a freelance basis. The good folks at Smithsonian.com did a nice profile on us :)  Member SATW and IFWTWA.
