Hey, Guys!

We’re Dan and Di, the couple behind the scenes. 

We started traveling when we graduated from college in 2014. We had endured three years of a long-distance relationship and had never even lived in the same city together. So, we did what any normal couple would do and moved to Abu Dhabi.

In Abu Dhabi, we taught for two years and were able to travel for seven months of those while also paying off our student loans. 

In 2016, our contracts ended and we made a brief stop in the US to get married before setting off again in 2017 as freelancers and digital nomads.

Dan began as a freelance writer and now has a full-time job as a remote content manager for a US company. I worked as a freelance digital marketer and writer before settling into my current roles as a travel writer and blogger here at Slight North. 

We live out of 55-liter backpacks and pack up and move to a new city or country every five weeks. 

In 2017 we traveled through Colombia and Peru, in 2018 through Mexico and the Balkans, and in 2019 through Turkey, Ukraine, and Mexico.

2020 will begin again in Mexico (clearly, we can’t get enough) before we head back to Eastern Europe for the second half of the year. 

This blog is a collection of travel guides, digital nomad lifestyle tips, all the mistakes I learned the hard way, and love letters to the places I love the most. 

So, stick around, check it out, and send us a message if you’d like to connect! 

You can also catch up with where we’ve been since 2017 in the video below by Veedyou Media.
