Hi, we’re Sam & Armando.

We’re two Seattle transplants originally from Florida. After years of dreading the humidity, hurricanes, and oppressive heat of Florida, we packed our small car and headed cross-country in May of 2020.

Moving to Seattle during the COVID19 pandemic when we knew nobody wasn’t exactly easy, but we loved getting to know this city. Originally, we moved to West Seattle, though we shortly relocated to the Greenlake area in the north of the city.

Today, we’re urban explorers who love trying new cuisines, hiking, taking day trips, and meeting other transplants. We invite you to share in our travels, whether you’re planning your first trip to the Emerald City or you’ve been here for years.

Have idea for where we should visit next? Let us know! Similarly, if you want to work with us, we’re always open to chatting about your idea.
