Cheryl MacDonald and Lisa Chavis decided their lives weren’t nearly exciting enough, so they sold all possessions that wouldn’t fit in a large backback and took off around the world.
Traveler, adventurer, writer, photographer, SCUBA diver, volunteer, and overall lover-of-life! In a nutshell, that’s a good description of either of them at any one moment.
They’re about as different as angel food cake and Key Lime pie, but somehow the combination seems to work. One prefers 5-star while the other is partial to dive bars, but it’s been 18 months, 4 continents, 29 countries, and more gooey desserts than either of them cares to remember — and they’re still going strong!
Backpacking for thirteen weeks and eleven countries throughout Europe, volunteering for ten weeks of diving in the Mexican jungle to protect the coral reef, three months in Africa photographing and studying up-close the Big 5 on game reserves, riding camels through the Sahara desert, diving the pristine waters of Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia…and as for what’s ahead??? There is an awful lot to see out there!

Our goal? To help anyone who’s looking to find the courage and motivation to live their own dreams! As Helen Keller said, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” Let’s live our dreams!!
