About

HERE'S WHAT WE DO
We've been producing powerful photography and solid reporting to create quality travel content on our Trans-Americas Journey travel blog since 2009. Your support helps keep our road trip going through the Americas all the way to Tierra del Fuego and back.

We are accomplished freelance travel journalists and experienced independent travelers from New York City. We left our jobs and packed up our belongings in 2006, jumped into a pickup truck and we've been exploring and reporting through North, Central, and South America ever since.

We travel slowly, spending months in each country we visit. This allows us to dig deep into established travel destinations, activities, accommodations and restaurants and find the most compelling emerging travel options few other outlets have the reporting or the time to tell you about.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU
In 2009 we debuted our Trans-Americas Journey travel blog and since then we've been delivering quality words and pictures in professionally told, richly-reported posts that provide information and inspiration about independent travel in the Americas. We talk to locals. We keep our eyes open. We raise eyebrows. And we share what we learn with enthusiasm and professionalism.

Over the years, our Trans-Americas Journey travel blog has become a respected source of travel information and a much-needed supplement to traditional travel information. We work every day to prove that travel content on the web does not have to suck.

EASY SUPPORT FOR THE STUFF YOU LIKE
Our digital travel content will always be free but we could use a little help from fans of quality travel writing and photography, like you. Your Patreon support of our travel blog will help us stay on the road and continue to produce professional stories and images to inspire and inform your own independent adventures.

We publish an average of 4-7 posts per month and we thank you for your support at any level you choose. Patreon makes it easy to select a support level and get billed automatically on a monthly basis. Just click the "Become a Patron" button and the rest is easy.

Your support of what we do will allow us to continue to prove that travel content on the web does not have to disappoint and neither does your next trip.
Goals
$35.21 of $40 per travel blog post (average of 4-7 per month)
When we reach this level of support we'll resume off-setting the CO2 we emit while driving.
