About Us

Who are we? Brandon Blackford and Jacquie Rooney, established November 2013 and partners in this travel adventure. Brandon is a former Navy lieutenant, and Jacquie worked as a product manager at Wilson Sporting Goods and Amazon. Now, we are taking some time to travel the world before whatever’s next!

Why are we doing this? Jacquie, then a category manager at Amazon, had had an especially challenging day at work. During dinner, she expressed the uncertainty of her desired future to Brandon. He, thinking about his impending discharge from the Navy, mentioned his desire to travel once he separated. As they say, the light came on. So they are following that light wherever it may lead them.
