Roses on the Road in Monaco

About Us

Our Goal

We started this travel blog as a place to share stories and photographs from our life as newlyweds on the road. We are traveling the world together as a young budget-conscious couple, and we hope our stories will inspire other people in relationships to travel the world together without fear or excuses!


We’re David and Alexis Rose: two lovebirds who got married in Hawaii on May 30, 2014. After that, we packed our bags and hopped on a one-way flight to Thailand to begin our nomadic adventures.

Alexis grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada and since her first trip abroad at age 14, she’s been addicted to traveling the world. David grew up in Kaneohe, Hawaii and was also bitten by the travel bug at a young age.

Together, we are aiming to see as much of the world as we can before it’s time to settle down and set up that white picket fence at home (wherever that may be). And starting in spring 2015, we are off on a brand new adventure! We’ll be moving to one new country every month. Check out our itinerary here!

    Hi, I only recently found your blog so I haven’t read too many posts yet, but from what I can see i think you might be interested in this…

    The reason I’m commenting is I have started a new weekly feature on my blog called Mixed up Mixtapes where each week I choose a theme (based around life living and working abroad) and I pick 5 songs that sum up that theme for me, sharing them in a blog post.

    Basically I’m reaching out to other bloggers out there and inviting them to make their own Mixed up Mixtape post based on the theme. This week’s theme is homesickness…

    If you are interested, feel free to make a post and just put a link back to my post somewhere and use the tag: mixed up mixtapes. I will be sharing other people’s contributions so you will likely get some extra visits from the followers of my blog :)

    Thanks! Kylie
