Welcome to Travel To Blank!
Hello we are Jazmín and Steven, and we love traveling the world and exploring all the wonderful places to visit. Jazmin is 26 and Steven is 25. Steven usually writes while Jazmin edits the photos and videos. We met while studying our undergrad at the University of Colorado Boulder and have not stopped traveling since.
After Steven graduated we both quit our jobs and did a two month road trip around the US. We visited 37 states and 12 National Parks, ending the trip with our wedding vows.
We moved to Ecuador right after our wedding and drove the two main scenic routes: The Volcanic and the Spondylus Route covering 2 out of the 4 regions of Ecuador. We also visited the Galapagos Islands and Amazonia region.
After a year we realized we wanted to keep growing in our academic career and decided to move to Madrid to study a master in Visual and Digital Media at IE University. With our centralized hub in Spain, we visited over 16 countries in Europe and toured Southeast Asia during our winter break.
Jaz’s family always asks Jazmin for advice on where to travel and how to do it for cheap but comfortably and safe. Then, we realized why not sharing it to the world? Let’s create a travel blog! We love traveling anywhere, sometimes we do not even know where we just jump into a car/bus/plane and go for the adventure. That is when the idea of blank came along. We love traveling to ____.
The purpose of our walking travel guides are to help you navigate through the endless supply of online travel guides and “things to do” lists. Our travel guides have a comprehensive walking routes of all the places you must see, experience, and photograph within each city, and nothing more. Even if there is a popular tourist attraction and it is not worth the visit, it does not make our list. It is better to enjoy your trip than say you saw a big nothing.
How we travel?
Some people might think that you could be either luxury or budget friendly blogger, but for us is more than that. We strongly believe in sustainable tourism regardless on how much money you want to spend on your trip. We focus on walking guides and finding hidden gems to promote sustainability, no matter what accommodations you chose.
We love finding the best prices for maximum comfort and safety. We normally stay in 3-4 star hotels depending on where we visit. For us is not about where we sleep but what places we explore. We travel with the flow and barely have a set plan when we travel.
What would you find in this blog?
Helpful information to help you navigate through endless lists of things to visit in your dream destination. We create walking guides with maps that can be download to your phone to help you explore a new place. You will also find reviews of hotels and products that we love and have used in the past.
