Born and raised in the sunshine state of Florida.  Nicole wasn’t inspired to travel until after university when she left Florida to teach English in Japan. The uniqueness and beauty of Japan fueled a passion for photography and a love of travel that changed her life forever.

All the photos on this website are taken by us, we hope you enjoy them.


Originally from a small village east of London, Jeremy always dreamed of traveling. His early bucket list included the Pyramids of Giza, Northern Ireland’s Giants Causeway, and Australia.

In addition to travel, he loves tinkering with vintage video arcade machines, has been learning drone videography, and enjoys managing the technical aspects of the website.

Get To Know Us

How did you first meet?

We were both living out of a guesthouse in a suburb of Sydney, Australia. Our rooms were across the hall from each other. 

I had a car and one Saturday I wanted to go to the beach. Jeremy convinced me he knew the way (long before Google Maps) if he could tag along, as he didn’t have a car. He got us terribly lost. A 20 minute drive took almost two hours, but at least he was good company. I now do most of our navigating.

Where do you currently call home?

Our latest home is in North Carolina. It is a beautiful central location to explore the east coast of the US. 

Prior to the United States, we lived in England for several years. This worked well for exploring the UK and Europe

What destination has had the biggest impact on you?

Nicole: Japan by far. It is such a unique place and culture to experience. It challenged my whole way of being. There is always something interesting going on, and every single day I was given the opportunity to learn or try something new.

Jeremy: For me it was the wide open expanses of Australia. The world felt so big and every step felt like I could be the first person to have stepped right there. Not much will beat walking all day on a beach in Western Australia and not seeing another soul.

What destination made you say "wow" the most?

Without a doubt the dramatic scenery of Iceland deserves this title. The glacier topped mountains, the vibrant moss covered lava fields stretching into the distance, icebergs gleaming in the sun against their black sand backdrop, bubbling sulfur pools and waterfalls, waterfalls, waterfalls. It is a stunning place to visit.

Where was your first overseas trip?

Nicole:  Though I was raised in the US, my family is from Bermuda. As a kid, we would go there for family visits, but I stopped going when I got older. After university I had a renewed interest in Bermuda. So, in what I consider my first true overseas trip, I spent two months getting reacquainted with family and exploring this island paradise. 

Jeremy:  In school I studied German, though sadly I remember very little of it now. My first overseas trip was a two week school trip to Rhineland, Germany when I was about 15.
