Traveler Bio

Hola amigos! (Hello friends!) Our names are Abby and Josh. We are best friends and long-time travel partners. We have been traveling together for 10 years, and we’ve visited eight countries together. Right now, we are very excited because we are going to visit our ninth country: Bolivia!

Josh and I both grew up in Richmond, Virginia—a small, historical city just about an hour’s drive from Jamestown (America’s first permanent English colony). Our favorite part about growing up in Virginia was driving to the Blue Ridge Mountains, where we could go hiking, snowboarding and camping with our friends. As you get to know us, I think you’ll soon learn that Josh and I really love spending time in the mountains.

Once, we traveled all the way to Nepal and went hiking for 30 days, so that we could reach the base of the highest mountain in the world: Mount Everest. Now, we get to explore the Andes Mountains in Bolivia!

But the real reason we are traveling to Bolivia is so that we can teach English to young students there. Teaching and working with children are our biggest passions in the world, and we can’t wait to share our journey with you!
