Hey all! We are Becky and Dustin! We’re an adventurous couple from Michigan (you know we have to be adventurous to brave this cold weather)! We have a passion for LIVING life and getting all we can out of it in the time we are given on this earth! Dustin grew up with water in his veins, and a true love for boating and I have an insatiable desire to explore the world and a lifelong love for traveling and learning about other cultures. And since boating is a means of traveling, our passions complement each other well. We truly enjoy life and each other and are setting out to make our dreams come true and hope to help make the world a better place in the process. This blog is all about our travels together-international trips, trips in the U.S., weekend getaways, fun things to see and do in our home state, dreams we have, you name it! Our aim is to show people what a big beautiful world there is out there, and how to enjoy it in the best way possible! Thanks for taking the time to hear what we have to say! 🙂
Here’s how we met, if you’re the curious type 😉 –
We grew up in the same small town in southwest Michigan and have known each other since we were 15 years old. Our moms were good friends and that is how we originally met. They tried getting us together in high school and although we hung out at a lot of the same places, went to the same church, and even had some of the same friends, it was never the right time for us. However, life has a way of working itself out so that when the time is right, paths cross and everything falls into place perfectly.
In 2010, Dustin and I got back in touch with each other via Facebook. We exchanged messages for a week or two and then our first date was the day after Christmas in 2010. He ended up taking me ice skating and out to dinner at a local Italian restaurant and the rest is what would become our love story! After 3 years together, he proposed in the middle of that same ice rink in our hometown, and of course I said yes! Now several years after our first date, we are married and own a house in the same charming little lakefront town that we grew up in- South Haven, Michigan- and travel every chance we get!
