“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

This Blog

Before man settled down to cultivate the land, we were tireless wanderers. The need to travel, to learn and discover, is inscribed in our DNA and imbibes the self with a sense of purpose.

Without wanderlust, without nature, grass, and sun, we are nothing but subterranean creatures trapped in the darkest maze; surrounded by cubicles and somber walls, we become lethargic and morose. Eventually, after enough deprivation, we begin to drown our sorrows with material acquisitions and start to believe the lie that materialism, rather than experiences and transcendence, is the ultimate source of lasting joy and happiness.

The goal and mission of this blog is to provide a paradigm shift. To wake us up from the stupor of inactivity and to proliferate a culture of wonderment and passion, enhanced by odysseys of body and mind. Through our experiences, memories, perspective, and even our failures, we hope to provide you with the blueprint to a better life, full of destinations and experiences, of succulent food and art, of all that is marvelous and captivating about man and our planet.

Ultimately, it is our hope that one day this blog may become a giant repository of traveling ideas, where all of us, ourselves included, may indulge from time to time and learn how to become better citizens of the world.

Our Family

We are Adlay and Mylene, a software developer and civil engineering duo living in sunny Miami. Although we work with numbers on a daily basis, our truest passion is nature and travel. Our family of two has slowly expanded over the years, with Max joining us in 2010 and our north star shinning forth in 2016: her name is Daphne. Becoming parents has solidified the idea that there is nothing more important than experiences and we are looking forward to a future where our daughter can discover the world not only in a classroom and books, but through first hand experience in exotic places. We believe that character is built through challenging endeavors, by confronting distress and the unknown so that you may discover your true potential. We are thrilled at the opportunity to share our vision, our experiences, victories and failures not only with her, but all of you as well. Thank you for joining us and we hope to see you around.
