About

Better Together Travels are the tales of two travelers who seek adventure everyday.

  • We love discovering new places and meeting new people, in our hometown and abroad.
  • We love visiting breweries and seeking the best beer in the world.
  • We love exploring the world’s beauty in nature and learning all we can about it’s history.
  • We love traveling together.

By exploring the world through our adventures, we hope to inspire you to go out and seek some adventures of your own.

My husband and I decided to start this blog because so many people always tell us how amazing it is that we travel together and have so many adventures. They say that they want to travel in our backpacks, live a day in our shoes, or the worst phrase of all- that we are smart for traveling while we’re young. All of these statements make me fear that people may have it all wrong, because the truth is ANYONE CAN TRAVEL and anyone can have a new adventure everyday!

It is far from coincidental that we met on an airplane… And after 2 years of a long distance relationship that involved much traveling, we tied the knot on a destination wedding in Captiva, Florida!

Traveling has always been a part of our lives from the beginning. Jarrett and I are both elementary special educators, which means we are able to enjoy more time off than most people to travel, but which also means that we have to be frugal in those travels. We constantly seek ways to have fun and explore new places on a budget.

We then share our travel stories, all the ups and downs, highs and lows; from the planning (and saving!), to the doing, to the remembering. From our tales, we hope to inspire you to get out there and discover something new. This world is quite amazing! My husband and I simply love life, love traveling, and love being together.

To give credit where it is due, our wedding song was Better Together by Jack Johnson, so what’s more appropriate than calling this blog Better Together Travels. And although I am a proponent for independent, self-discovering travels, I can definitely say that my travels these days are better when we’re together. So feel free to explore our blog and get inspired to travel!

Happy Travels,

Maria & Jarrett
