I'm Rachael and he's Christian.

I’m from Orange County, California, and he’s from Maastricht, the Netherlands.

I was a Finance girl at a worldwide media company and he was a mobile phone guru for a big telecom company in Amsterdam, Holland, the amazing city we’ve called home for the last 5 years.

After Christian popped the question on Christmas Day, we got married on a Mexican beach with our family and friends.

We quit our sweet jobs, packed up our first apartment and just took off for our new adventure in November 2013: six months backpacking around Asia and the Middle East. It's so bittersweet but we have left our beloved Amsterdam and are moving to San Francisco, California. We'll miss Amsterdam immensely but we're excited to explore SF and the Cali coast!

But first...Asia :).

Follow us along on our adventures!

Here’s our little cat Jack...who we never intended on getting. On a bright sunny day in Amsterdam, Christian and I walked around the city looking for Finnish beer (we met in Finland, find out more here!), we snuck into a pet store with a sign that said ‘kitties inside’ (who doesn’t love kitties?) then 20 minutes later we walked out with tiny furball Jack, we fell in love! Now he lounges around our place his palace while we cater to his every need. More than one person has commented on the amount of toys Jack has...what can we say? We spoil him...:)
