About US

Nice to Meet You!


We made enough mistakes along our journey traveling that every last bit of content that we create is focused on providing you information on how to travel better (while hopefully providing a laugh along the way).

This is a tiny corner of the site we carved out to fill you in on who we are and what makes us tick. So without further ado...

We're the Diemers

We're one of those recently married, 30ish couples that felt that wonderful but terrifying urge that led you to this site- the desire to see more of the world.

Inspired by others who've done it themselves, we made a two year savings plan that focused on putting money away as quickly as possible so that we could get on with our dream. We planned, saved, and planned and saved, and saved some more. In August 2015 we put all of our material possessions in storage, threw some clothes in a backpack and boarded a one-way-ticket to Europe.

The list of destinations is forever changing but the beauty of it all is THERE IS NO PLAN.

We film every part of our journey and put it on our YouTube Vlog Series TRIPPED.


Meet Allison, 29, you can call her Finney

Why?   Everyone else does.  Its nice! Give it a try.  

She speaks Spanish which usually makes eavesdroppers turn their heads hearing a southern Mexican dialect come out of the mouth of a 5'11" blonde.  You can currently find her in Asia, in the arms of a shorter man requesting to take a selfie with her.

FAVORITE PLACES:  Dubai, Argentina, Santorini and Croatia.

FAVORITE TRAVEL MEMORY:  Kids in rural Philippines jumping and shouting HELLO whenever they saw two awkwardly tall white people trying to keep up with them on a scooter.


Meet Tim, 34, you can call him Diemer

Some say Diemer was raised by wolves. Others claim the spirits of the forest played a part. Most however, would agree that he was raised by his parents in a house.

A living oddity, he is one of the few living men who can legally drive a Class A dump truck but also knows why you'd pay more for a full canvas suit.  

While blessed with many useless gifts, he is not a man without weakness. To this day he is unable to throw a baseball or "pigskin" in front of others without fear of ridicule.

FAVORITE PLACES:  Anywhere best explored on a motorbike: Vietnam, the PhilippinesSantorini and Bali.
