Uncornered Market: Tips from An Around the World Travel Couple

 

This is a great little article about our friends over at Uncornered Market.  Some really great travel info, advice, and reading from these experienced wanderlusts.

In December 2006, Dan and Audrey quit their jobs to follow their dream of traveling around the world for a year or two.  Five years and over 70 countries later, they are still going…and still married.

In addition to traveling to the usual suspects like Italy or Thailand, they also go to off-beat places like Tajikistan, Paraguay, Bangladesh, and Estonia– with a focus on meeting people from all walks of life and eating as much street food as they can find.

Their popular travel blog, Uncornered Market, allows you to follow along with them on their journey. The blog serves up travel stories and photos from around the world, life lessons learned through travel, street food escapades, profiles of inspirational people and organizations, and humorous vignettes from a life of budget travel.

In addition, Uncornered Market offers tips and advice for travelers and photographers with the idea that you can create your own adventure and come home with amazing photos from your travels.

  1. What an amazing couple and journey! I’m seriously envious. Thanks for sharing their link. Those places (and those momos in Darjeeling)!

    Does your group do India trips? I’d LOVE to go but I’ve yet to meet anyone else really interested I’d want to travel there with. I’ve never really done the group tour for travel, but I imagine its probably better for spots like that. I planned to do a group for Egypt, a dream itinerary for me, and the highlight of an entire year, but the company was really flaky and canceled it.

    • Hey Tamara!

      Our club will be going to India! Probably not for a couple years though…Sorry to hear about Egypt–we are going there in November actually. Let me know if you are interested.

  2. Love Uncornered Market! What an inspirational pair!
