It was 2013, and Courtney (my wife) and I were your typical, 30-something American couple. In respectable, 9-to-5 desk jobs, we were climbing the professional ladder, saving for a house, and talking about starting a family.
Instead, we quit their jobs, put everything into storage, and left our home in Washington, D.C., in search of adventure, personal fulfillment, and good eats. We spent a year motorcycling through Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand. We hiked the Himalaya in Northern India. We explored the outer reaches of Indonesia, drove across the empty quarter, and much more.
