About Us

In 2010, Tip and Tarah met each other while working at a local gym. They started talking, and a few months later they were dating. They were pretty inseparable from the beginning. Our first trip together was a roadtrip to California, to see Tarah’s best friend get married. After that we caught the travel bug together. Tarah had done lots of international travel before meeting Tip, but Tip hadn’t. We decided to make Europe our first international trip together, which always was where Tip proposed! He put everyone else to shame, and proposed in front of the Eiffel Tower, how romantic, right?!  We ended up getting married in Jamaica and from there, the travel dreams and trips escalated.

Now, we own our own gym in Oregon where we both still do personal training, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still explore! We make the most of our time and make sure we take plenty of vacation to travel the world. We spend most of our free time exploring Oregon and the Pacific Northwest with our dogs. We’re currently in the middle of converting our van into a campervan, so we can explore more of the United States!

We’ve visited 26 countries and 22 states together. We hope to inspire you to get out and travel more, even if it’s in your own backyard.

    Hi Tip and Tarah! I love how you two met. I think being fit is important in traveling since there are so many foods to try and you have to stay active! My husband and I are also newlyweds and we love traveling. I’d be looking forward in seeing more of your posts.

    Hey mate,

    Love your site 🙂

    I was hoping you could steer me in the right direction…

    I’m heading overseas (from Australia) for 2 months, hitting up Switzerland, Scotland, Iceland and Sri Lanka. I’m chasing a travel-backpack that can also double as a day-hiking backpack? At the same time I wanted to try and have it maintain an element of ‘style’ but to be honest that’s the least important part… I need it to but functional in the first instance.

    I carry a DSLR Canon 50D with me as-well, and 2 lenses.

    Is there a ‘middle’ bag that can swap in and out to do both? Or am I better getting 2 bags for different purposes?

    How do you guys manage?1

      Thank you! Glad you like our site, we work really work on it.

      That trip sounds amazing, we are actually in Switzerland right now ! In a city close to interlocken.

      As far as the type of bag you should get, funny you ask as we were getting ready to do a post when we get home about the type of bags we use… So for this trip we actually just got a few new bags to try out, the one I think that might be right up your alley is this high sierra bag that we use. It is a roller/backpack/ and has an attachment that turns into a day pack, that can easily fit your camera. It fits my dji mavic drive among other things no problem.

      If you are looking for an extra bag, you can try the sling pack, it’s very small and Versitile with lots of pockets. We use it regularly.

      But we carry a lot of electronic equipment so I had to take this backpack along just for our electronics. It’s an amazing back and not too big. I can fit my 15 inch MacBook Pro in there also. Overalls been really happy with this bag.

      Hope all of this helps and if you have any other questions don’t hesitate to ask ! We love helping and sharing our experiences.

    In reading your segment on TSA Pre check or Global Entry, my question is: Is there an age limit for children? I am a travel agent, and our 2 year old granddaughter lives and travels with us while her dad is at work. He is a pilot. Can we get her a global entry card or does she need one? Thank you, Paula

    • Fittwotravel

      I am not entirely sure on that. I did read that any child 12 or under traveling with a parent or guardian with precheck can use it. Global entry needs an interview, so not sure if she would be eligible for that but I’m sure the customs and border patrol website has more info on that!
