WELCOME!!! This is Kendra & Scott’s Story
We are an average couple in our 30th decade looking to get the most out of life. Travel, culture, language, adventure and everything unseen to us is screaming out our names. Our journey together began in Denver, Colorado where we met like many other millennial’s are meeting now days, on an online dating site. The first real date was a fun-filled day of skiing and snowboarding in the beautiful white-capped Rocky Mountains, which left us both hanging off the edge of our seats wanting to learn more about the other. It wasn’t long after, that we fell in love, moved in, bought a house and a Jeep together and started ours lives as one. Fast forward 5 years… and we sealed the deal with a kiss and finally got married.
Together, we realized that we shared a commonality and both felt lost, out-of-place, and confused about our life purpose while living in the confines of the concrete jungle and in the trenches of modern society. After some very incredible, awe-inspiring trips – taken both separately and together to Jamaica, Mexico, India, Hawaii and the wilderness of the most fabulous of all the 50 states, Colorado (I’m a little bias being a rural Colorado Native) – we realized that there is much more to life than the bump and grind of the 9-5. So… in October 2017 we gave it all up – the house, the cars, all the stuff, the jobs and everything conventional – in hopes to find a deeper connection to ourselves, our spirits, and the great earth that we walk upon. We hope to find our gifts in life so that one day we can fulfill the purpose of life and give them away.
In less than a month we’ve been through 5 different countries and spent significant time in France and Nepal. We have a volunteer opportunity at the Sambhavna clinic in Bhopal, India waiting for us in December. After that, we just want to see where the wind blows us; we’re ready to be completely embraced by living in the moment. Living in the moment is hard when your whole life has been lead by a clock, constantly ticking away. People don’t understand what they want – what they truly want – out of life until they have the opportunity to step away from their routine. If you’re lucky enough to step away, it can still be difficult to think for yourself. We have pushed the reset button and start a new way of life, re-learning all the ideas that have run our lives up to this point. We’d rather die trying to find ourselves than live for nothing, anymore.
