Hey there! We are Julia and Kyle, a normal California couple, other than we both work non-traditional jobs. Julia is horse rider by day and a Twitch streamer by night. Kyle is a 6 foot 7 keyboard-wielding giant who works in the influencer industry.

Our goal with traveling is to show a more raw vlog style than typically seen on Instagram or YouTube. While a few pictures and 10 minute video might be great for some, we think its better to split the content into several parts:


1) Blogs / Journal Entries - Everyday while traveling we will be posting entries here on Patreon about what we did throughout the day, highlighting locations, activities, cost and ease. We think these points are important to hit for those both looking to travel and any of you who just want to check up on what we did and how challenging it was. Occasionally entries will be posted for travel prep and planning, which will largely revolve around what we are hoping to accomplish with each location and ramblings about history and culture.
2) Vlogs, Photography and Raw Video Footage - Throughout the day, we will be taking vlog style video content, which would be us having the camera toward us, talking about what we are going to do, currently doing, or just did while traveling. In between us talking to the camera, we will have gorgeous shots of the destinations through photos and videos. In the end, the footage will be edited together and presented in highlights as travel vlogs, but the raw, uncut footage and photos will also be uploaded, for those who want a bit of "behind the scenes" view. We think this is important, because it will showcase some of the traveling that isn't as picture perfect, our struggles, confusion and out-takes will be available for your amusement!
3) Live Streams, Commentary & VODs - At the end of each day's travel, we will be going back to a hotel, hostel or rest spot, pulling out a laptop, webcam and mic, and going live while going back over the day's events, footage and photography with you while showing off some of our physical purchases and surroundings. Bringing live streaming into this is to allow you to ask questions, see our progress and experience the country in real time with us. While much of the footage will be from earlier in the day, as we will be still deep in the country we are in, anything can happen and you will be able to see and hear the culture around us. If you cannot catch the live stream, VODs of the streams will be available and uploaded!

This project on Patreon is to not only help us create Travel Vlogs, Blogs and Streams based around traveling, but also to have you come along with us by making this an interactive experience, where you get to decide where to send us next, what we do, see and eat. If you decide you want us to go to Japan and stay at a small capsule hotel, we As we go to new places we will be picking up postcards, trinkets, collectibles and giving pieces of our journey back to you! Our entire journey will  be cost-transparent, meaning we will be estimating the cost of travel before, and coming up with daily costs for what we did along with alternatives that could have made it cheaper (or more expensive) for those who are interested in the cost! If this project takes off, and many of you want to support this Patreon, we will be trying to make things as cost effective as possible in order to be respectful to you all.

Along the way, we will be joined by our friend and professional photographer, Sam Chen, who will be our travel companion, professional third wheel and photographer. 

We would love for you to be involved in this as we explore, well, whatever you all decide!

Note: Patreon is a subscription model, you can cancel anytime, although the month(s) leading up to the travel allow us to budget, plan and provide updates and polls for Patreon backers
