We are Felicity and Marco, Thinking Nomads founders.

Since 2005, we’ve been exploring the world, from mountaintops to bustling cities, as Thinking Nomads. Our journey began with a backpacking trip in South America, and our blog has grown alongside us, reflecting our evolving lives – even including an epic mountaintop engagement in Bolivia!

Now, with two little explorers in tow, we share our passion for travel through practical tips, inspiring itineraries, and heartwarming stories. Join us on adventures for every kind of wanderer, and fuel your own journey of discovery! Start exploring today! Read our story.
