Part of building a travel blog is finding inspiration and support from other travel bloggers. Our blogging friends Amber (@amberscompass) and Jenn (@amapforkandcork) both nominated us for the next award. Then we pass it along to other new travel bloggers who inspire us. The Liebster Award was created to recognize and discover new bloggers and welcome them to the blogosphere. How fun!
Thank you Amber! Amber is a traveler with a love for reading travel-related books. If you need a book recommendation, checkout her blog Amber’s Compass.
Thank you Jenn! Jenn is a Canadian with a passion for cooking and bacon (we love you already)! She goes to super unique places and is the queen of adventures which she shares on A Map Fork and Cork.

Our favorite travel blogger is Lesley Anne Murphy of The Road Les Traveled. She is fearless, strong, adventurous, positive, and entertaining. We first saw her on the Bachelor and she was one of our favorite contestants. Later, we stumbled across her instagram and learned she was a full time travel blogger. She has been a huge inspiration for us ever since. Hopefully we can meet her someday!

If you could only go on one more trip, where would you go? Next up on our bucket list to conquer is probably France. We’d love to go to Paris obviously, but some of the smaller countryside towns look so romantic
What is that one post made by you that you like the most, and why? So far our favorite post is Save on the wedding to splurge on the honeymoon because it is the most personal and we share some memories from the best day ever- our wedding.
What is your favourite movie about travel? Under Tuscan Sun. We loved Tuscany, Italy and that movie is part of why we wanted to visit Tuscany and all its charm.
Have you ever visited a place just because you saw it in a book or movie? What was that place? When Steph was in San Francisco, she went to see the houses from the TV show “Full House” and they were so cute!
Would you rather go on a safari in Africa or an expedition in the Arctic? For sure a safari. We are obsessed with giraffes and we prefer warm weather over cold. No one wants their butt frozen off!
If you can take someone with you in your travels, who would it be? We usually travel together. But if we could afford to take someone with us we’d take Steph’s sister Lindsey. She is a crazy, talented artist and could definitely capture some beautiful moments on camera.
What/Who inspires you to travel this world? Our love for traveling is inspired by the beauty of all God’s creations. It is incredible that He made so many different landscapes, climates, people, animals, etc.
What is the best memory that you have while traveling? Our favorite memory so far was driving a Ferrari through the countryside of Italy. Zach’s smile stretched from ear to ear and Steph’s hair got tangled up so bad it looked like a bird’s nest. But it was well worth the fun!
Name the top 3 most beautiful beaches you have visited. Our favorite beach ever was the black sand beach in Maui, Hawaii. After that would be Valencia, Spain and Cinque Terre, Italy.
How did traveling change your life? Traveling has allowed us to grow in experiences instead of things. The more we enjoy together, the stronger our bond grows.
