A quick and easy way to help keep us going

I know what you’re thinking. “Gosh, these guys are just so cute and fun, I feel like sending them a bunch of money!” Okay, probably not that exactly, but if you do feel inclined to help support our adventures abroad, there’s a quick and easy way to do it that won’t affect your budget at all.

Take a look over on the right side of the page. You’ll see a couple of boxes, one of which is labeled “Shameless Advertising”. Find the link (it’s the word “HERE”) and click it. That will take you to Then, bookmark the page. Every time you shop on Amazon, use that bookmark, and we get a commission on whatever you buy. Seriously. You don’t have to get anything in particular or spend a certain amount, just do your normal Amazon shopping and we get a cut (as long as you use our bookmark, of course!).

The other thing you can do is to hit the “Like” button at the bottom of each post. It won’t fatten our wallets, but it does increase our visibility; the more likes a post gets, the more likely it will be seen by strangers, which will lead to bigger opportunities for us. Also, it just feels really good to see people taking that extra second to click the button. Comments are even better, so if you like something we wrote, leave a comment! Even if it’s just to say, “Good job”, “Wow, I really envy you”, or “You left your jobs for this?!” Your comments help us to keep going and keep doing what we love.

So, to wrap up:

  • Support us financially by shopping through our Amazon Link
  • Support us emotionally by liking and commenting on our posts

Thank you to all of our amazing supporters and readers for believing in us and following along as we try to fulfill our dreams. Not one of you has said, “This is stupid,” and we really appreciate it!

More Shameless Advertising


  • What better gift is there than an AMAZON GIFT CARD. You know you were going to buy one anyway, so help a girl out and simply buy it the same way you always do, but by clicking MY link instead of going to For every gift card you purchase, I get a percentage! I promise to use the money wisely. 😉


  • Wait, you don’t understand why people give Amazon gift cards as gifts? Well, that must mean you don’t have Amazon Prime… the best invention since Netflix. You want something, BAM, you’ve got it! Just think of the last time you drove all over town looking for a pair of purple socks with yellow ruffles. All of the time and hassle could have been avoided if you had just hopped on good old Amazon and had it delivered to your home with free shipping. Do it! Everyone loves Amazon Prime! Click MY link. You get a 30 day free trial and I get $3! What’s not to love?!


  • Too much with the Amazon push? Ok. How about the amazing links below?! I didn’t pick them out, your browser did (best stalker ever). The only thing I do with those is rent the space and make money every time you even look at it. LOOK AT IT! Gaze into it’s hypnotic advertising images…. “buy me” it says… “buy me.” You don’t even have to buy anything (even though you know you totally want to), just looking at it makes me a fraction of cent. With my calculations, I should be making millions within the next 30 years!
