Interviewed by the Himalayan Times
“Who says love stories have to have a Romeo-Juliet ending? But again the ‘Prince Charming and happily ever after’ tale we have been led to believe is just limited to text, or is it? Whether you admit to want to fall in love or not, the desire to share those little precious moments with someone cannot completely fade away. Of course with heart wrenching experiences, you may believe such things don’t exist and rightly so, but one day you realize that the glass is not half empty after all.

1. When did you fall in love with travel?
George: I first fell in love with travel when I traveled with my parents as a young child on a road trip in Mexico, and during family trips to Israel and the Bahamas. I eventually truly fell in love with travel on my own when I traveled to Europe for the first time. I knew it was something I wanted to continue to do.
Lisa: My parents took my sister and I on a cruise to the Mediterranean when I was twelve. I loved being at sea and waking up each day in a new port. The waiter gave us huge bags of fruit to take on the bus to the pyramids; he was worried we wouldn’t find anything to eat. Riding a camel that day was an experience I have never forgotten, and I am still hungry for more adventures!

Travel for Two: An Interview with 11 Traveling Duos
1. Eat where locals eat
2. Stay in lower end accommodations. As long as a room is clean, it does not have to have every amenity. If you are away on a long trip, most people cannot afford to have luxury every night.
3. Mix it up: sometimes you can buy a bottle of wine or spirits at a store instead of going to bars for your drinks. Read the full interview on MonkeyBrewster.com
Trippers of the Week at Tripping.com
George: 1. Proposing to Lisa underwater in Koh Lipe, Thailand 2. Seeing the quantity and diversity of animals in the Gobi Desert, Mongolia.
Lisa, you’ve visited more than 100 countries. What has been your favorite country to visit so far? I would have to say from our year trip Mongolia was one of my most favorite! I loved the vast expanse of nothing that they call the Gobi Desert. It is spectacular. We did an eleven-day van trip with another couple who we met as we got into the van. I also think of Thailand as my future home. We cannot wait to get back to Thailand!
