Hey there! What’s crackin’? Oh right, you wanted to know a bit about us…
We are Ang and Ryan. We’re a couple – with crazy little dog named Louis in tow – who love to travel the world, live different places, get to know people and new cultures, learn languages, and do lots of sitting in cafes. Not that we don’t work or anything. Fortunately for us, we’ve put ourselves in a position to be location independent, and it just so happens that it’s also the way we prefer to live. This is us…
Our addiction started when we were young, traveling around, learning languages (collectively, we speak English, French, German, almost enough Serbo-Croatian, some Spanish, and a smattering of many others), and being utterly fascinated by everything that it entails. As kids, toys were replaced by language books, the World Book Encyclopedia and various subjects of the Time Life series were indispensable reading. We traveled all over, as much as we could, and eventually left our home in Chicago to become expats in Berlin, Germany.
We loved Berlin, loved learning the language, and loved becoming part of the wonderful city that it is. In the latter half of 2012, certain changes we made to our lifestyle and the way we run our business allowed us to become location independent. Beginning late in the summer, became digital nomads, living wherever we see fit, taking life and travel slow, and enjoying being in all the new places that we find along the way.
Europe? Africa? Asia? South America? We’re never sure what’s next, but everything is on our list! If you have a suggestion as to where we go next, feel free to contact us here, leave a comment, or visit us on our Facebook page. We love meeting new people and exploring new places, so don’t hesitate to give us a shout!
Oh, and why “Jets Like Taxis”? We have always loved to travel, and one of our friends once said, “We take jets like taxis.” That’s not exactly true, but it was a great statement that we thought was fitting, even if we don’t live the high-class, jet-set lifestyle. We’ve had the domain forever, and figured this was the perfect time to use it. Right? Sure, why not. It has become time to actually write something about all of our (mis)adventures!
It shall continue being a wild ride, and we look forward to every minute of it…
Yours from the road,
Ang, Ryan & Louis
