On Our Own Path: Notes from our Global Life

Written by  Verge January 4, 2012

Self proclaimed global nomads in search of adventure, Bessie and Kyle share their stories as they travel around the world - not always knowing where they're going next.

On Our Own Path: Notes from our Global Life


Travelling couple Bessie and Kyle have been “on the road 1,037 days, travelled 74,155 miles and volunteered 1,193 hours.” And their travel blog, On Our Own Path, is the proof. It’s filled with stories and advice for other aspiring long-term travellers, from “The Human Story of Fair Trade Coffee” to a whole section on the year they spent teaching English in South Korea. Having seen a fair bit of Latin America, they are now making their way through Asia, making sure to find the time to volunteer along the way.
