Thank you to Mountain Travel Sobek for interviewing us for Adventure Talk! We are honored to be included in their adventure series!
Avid travelers and entrepreneurs, Lisa and George fell in love while exploring the world, and have continued to strengthen their bond while reaching out to inspire others to live their dreams. They are two educators with a passion for globetrotting, and their adventures have brewed their creation of We Said Go Travel, a site that has developed into a global community, where over 300 people have come to share their story. We had the chance to interview Lisa and George and uncover some of their story below:
1. When did you fall in love with travel?
George: I first fell in love with travel when I traveled with my parents as a young child on a road trip in Mexico, and during family trips to Israel and the Bahamas. I eventually truly fell in love with travel on my own when I traveled to Europe for the first time. I knew it was something I wanted to continue to do.
Lisa: My parents took my sister and I on a cruise to the Mediterranean when I was twelve. I loved being at sea and waking up each day in a new port. The waiter gave us huge bags of fruit to take on the bus to the pyramids; he was worried we wouldn’t find anything to eat. Riding a camel that day was an experience I have never forgotten, and I am still hungry for more adventures!
4. Tell us about your book, Traveling in Sin…would you describe it as your and George’s love story?
George: Yes. It is a memoir about our relationship and how it evolved during our year-long journey traveling, primarily in Asia from Indonesia to Mongolia.
Lisa: Our book starts with the actual emails we sent when we met online. From our first contact to spending 24/7 together on the road, we share the good, the bad and my tears on our journey. There are humorous moments and colorful characters.
