I’m Kennady, a 24 year old American who is passionate about creating, connection, and living with intention. Some of my best experiences include finishing a four year degree in Art Therapy, developing who I am as a visual artist, growing in a loving family of four parents and six children, and writing about my passions.
Some of my favorite things to do include watching live music performances, painting, attending festivals, and antique window shopping. I enjoy submerging myself in nature by hiking and swimming. The Office is my favorite TV show to binge. I thrive on positivity and laughter.
I am originally from Greenville, South Carolina and lived my whole life within a 50 mile radius before deciding to travel full-time. After graduating from Converse College in Spartanburg, South Carolina, I knew I was prepared to take my place in the art therapy field and start my dream job. However, something in me was unsure about diving straight into graduate school and beginning a full-time career at only twenty-two years old.
I decided to take a gap year in the same town I graduated from. During that time, I began to realize that I had more than one dream and more than one path that I wanted to experience in my life.
I was young, childless, and basically single for the most part. I was pacifying all the energy that my job was sucking out of me with careless spending and consumerism. I was living to work. I wanted to find a way to live my life according to my terms. I asked myself, “What do I really value? What experiences do I want to have? What freedoms are necessary to live my best life?”
When I decided to dedicate my life to travelling full-time, I had no savings, had never traveled internationally, and was working 40+ hours a week to make it by in America. Today? I am living in Australia with my partner and learning new ways to experience what I value from life in ways that define success and happiness for me. I am redirecting my life according to my terms. Through this journey, I hope to connect with people around the globe and inspire others to explore and travel on their own terms as well. I hope to show how YOU can take control of your life, too! Don’t let life move around you, let yourself move through life in all of your gifts and grace.
I’m Will Moseley, a 24 year old American who is fueled by traveling to new places and meeting new, incredible people. After growing up in a rural town and attending a small liberal arts college, I have committed my life to following my passions and traveling full time. I am writing to tell you how you can do the same!
I was born and raised in Newberry, South Carolina and stuck to the southeastern states growing up. I have always had a pretty close knit family. I never thought much about traveling far away, much less moving to the other side of the planet at 22 years old, but we will get to that later. I have always had a passion for music, which in 2009 gave me the opportunity to spend 2 weeks traveling to Italy with the South Carolina Methodist Conference Youth Choir. I wouldn’t realize it at the time, but following that passion for music across the Atlantic at 15 years old showed me how important it is to do what you love, no matter where it takes you.
Fast Forward to the end of 2014, I am a junior year at Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC studying Psychology and Religious studies when I am presented with the opportunity to join an archaeological dig in northern Israel for the upcoming summer. This is the winter break that changed my life forever. I decided to not only spend the summer on the dig, but I applied to spend the fall of the following year studying in Vienna, Austria. That summer and fall I would end up traveling to more countries than I had traveled states in the U.S.
After graduating in the spring of 2016, I had no clue what career path was ahead of me, no plans for grad school, and no serious romantic relationships. This is a place that many young Americans find themselves in after undergrad, forcing them to rush into a job, school, or relationship that may not be the right fit. I felt that pressure in the following months until one day, a friend asked me the most amazing, unexpected, and wonderful question; “Do you want to move to New Zealand with me?”
Over the next six months we saved and prepared to move. In January of 2017, Mac Young and I moved into a van in Queenstown, New Zealand and we became nomads. That year was full of surprises, stressful situations, and incredible sights, but it taught me more than anything that there is a very large world out there for people to experience.
2017 ended and I found my way back to South Carolina, promising myself that it would be a temporary stop before hopping on a plane and starting a new journey. I knew I would be starting a new adventure within the next year, but what I did not realize is that I would meet an amazing woman who wanted to share all of these experiences with me and help me share them with all of our readers out there. Kennady and I hope that each one of our incredibly unique readers are inspired by our stories and can go out and travel to the places that they want to see.
