We are Felicity and Marco, Thinking Nomads founders, traveling and adventuring together since 2005. An around the world trip sparked our wanderlust during the trip we explored India by train, trekked the Annapurna circuit in Nepal and drove the Big Sur in California.

Thinking Nomads launched in 2010 during a 6 month backpacking trip in South America as a creative outlet and to share our adventures. You could say our blog has evolved and grown with us, from getting engaged on top of 6500m mountain in Bolivia, to getting married and having our two daughters.

In 2017, when our daughters were just two and four years, we embarked on an epic family adventure around the world taking a 2 year family gap.
