Welcome to Happy To Be

We're glad you stopped by. Join us in our action-packed two and a half year tour around the world. We're a married U.S. couple in our early thirties who chose to give up our jobs, home, and responsibilities to backpack around the globe. Come along with us as we leave conformity behind and travel the world in search of adventures. By sharing our stories and photos, we hope to inspire others to live life to the fullest and experience all that the world has to offer. "God gave us a book, and those that haven't traveled have only read the cover" and "Don't get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life."
