Or Come Visit Our Amazing Hometown of Boise, Idaho

For us travel is all about seeing a different way of life. Which is why we use public transit and shop in grocery stores, to broaden our own perspective of what it means to be a citizen in a different part of the world.

Which is not to say that we don’t love our own hometown of Boise, Idaho. In 2022, Boise was named by U.S News and World Report as one of the top 15 places to live. And we definitely understand why. So why we write a lot about our travels, we also write about our hometown.
