Jeffsetter Travel started as our hobby blog on travel, points and photography. We planned an annual dream vacation using our points and imaginations (maybe a few Pinterest boards).
In 2015, we started a One Way Never-ending Journey – our OWN Journey – to explore this planet we call home. With our wine collection in storage and most our other possessions sold, we headed west and haven’t looked back (well, we still come back for visits).
In 2016, we started working with Pique Travel Design as an independent affiliate to design custom Adventures.
Get to know the Jeffsetters
First International Trip: No idea. I had my first passport at age 3 months. (Yes, I still have the picture page of the passport).
Where’s your Stuff: Our storage unit is 80% wine and whiskey collection, and 15% is my cooking items with which I cannot part, yet.
What do you do: Before Jeff convinced me to become a digital nomad, I was international tax consultant with a Big 4 accounting firm. Now, I am a travel consultant.
Favorite Activity: Wine tasting, learning local culture through cooking classes, hiking followed by a spa treatment, scuba diving and getting vitamin D. Oh, and giving everything names – e.g., trip plans aka operations, our suitcases, Jeff’s drone, our cars, call it a personalized touch not crazy :)
Digital Nomad Pro: Freedom and flexibility to live life to the fullest in our own personal style.
Digital Nomad Con: Moving too much is exhausting, and I can’t have a kitty.
Drink of Choice: Depends on the moment, I don’t discriminate as long as it tastes good. Right now, I am into the Thai iced tea.
First International Trip: My first trip aboard was in college to film a documentary in Africa, and I haven’t looked back.
Travel Goals: My goal is to visit all seven continents. I visited six by age 30, and the only one left is Antarctica.
Drink of Choice: Red wine (Barolos and Napa Cabs, specifically), imperial stouts and whiskeys
Most Unexpected Travel Moment: Having my plane ticket torn up for my honeymoon because my passport wasn’t “valid,” or having my drone impounded at customs in Peru.
Digital Nomad Pro: Owning my own business and seeing the world
Digital Nomad Con: Not enough time to see everything
Favorite Activity: Photography of landscapes, the remaining 5% of our storage unit is filled with my photo canvas wall and other pictures. My favorite photography adventure was in Peru. Our guide customized our tour to the lesser seen side of the Sacred Valley.
Favorite Grown-up Toy: I have a drone for photography and videos. Amanda hates it.
