Love can be defined in an infinite amount of ways and our love story has been one wild and beautiful adventure.

Exploring the world with my love

Exploring the world with my love

When I met her, I knew with certainty that I wanted to travel the world with her forever. That hasn’t changed. We met while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Soon after, we purchased tickets on a whim and moved to South Korea. During our two years in Korea, we bought a motorcycle and spent every weekend exploring the country.

And we continued to travel.

I remember watching her eyes light up when we trained falcons in Bahrain. I can see her shy laugh as we accidentally stumbled upon (and into) an Indian wedding. I love watching her explore the hidden corners of the globe.

Those experiences are everything to me. With each new trip we discovered more about the world and each other.

When I proposed at the Taj Mahal, I did so because all I wanted was to travel the world with her forever. Ours is a love story written in arrival and departure dates. Love notes signed with seat assignments 4A and 4B, our hearts filling just as quickly as our passports.

You learn so much in sharing the road with someone-not only about them, but about yourself. Each new adventure lets our love for one another and the world grow, and I didn’t think we could ever find a journey more exciting than that.

That is, until you. Now, I see that wonder in your face as your eyes light up more and more every day. I watch you react as the wind hits your face and I know with certainty, that all I want is to travel the world with you forever.

What are your favorite travel moments with loved ones?

Captain And Clark

Chris Staudinger and Tawny Clark (also known as "Captain and Clark") have spent the majority of their relationship exploring this great big world. After meeting on Kilimanjaro, courting in South Korea, getting engaged at the Taj Mahal, and sealing the deal in the Cascade Mountains, the two decided it was time to add another explorer to the mix. Traveling the world with kiddo-in-tow might alter the way they navigate the globe, but they welcome the challenge with open suitcases.

Chris and Tawny have had articles and videos published on USA TODAY TRAVEL, BBC Travel, Matador Network, as well as appeared as guest stars on TLC Asia's Fun Taiwan television series. When not on the road, you can find Chris and Tawny nestled in their home in Tacoma, Washington fueling up on coffee and cat cuddles while planning their future adventures. You can follow their travels on their blog, Instagram, and YouTube

    Man, I really take issue with folks that create this sort of manufactured BS narrative.

    Just do the damn thing, don’t do it with the intent of slapping these horribly tacky self-centered and obviously contrived images on top of everything.

    Nice shot of your map, btw. And all the travel artifacts! Looks awesome how they’re all strategically arranged. Oh look, now there’s even a baby there [eyeroll].
