What started as living one’s passion for travel soon got converted into inspiration for many and took no longer to make a living out of it. Marie and Jake could see the potential of insta story tellling upon touching 30000 followers. And hence consistency in their work was their key forte. Not all disagreements are waste. Sometimes, it pushes you to come to a point where you see a new beginning. This holds true for the duo. Whilst Marie preferred brighter/sharper and colorful pics, Jake has a liking for softer/warmer/earthier photos. this conflict encouraged them to come up with their customised range of presets to apply to their photos to get a consistent style.
They only promote products or support causes with a purpose and try to maintain authenticity in online world. They count Indonesia as the best place to experience diversity and is surely a photographer’s paradise. Other destinations close to their heart are the Philippines, Mexico and Sri Lanka

This duo is truly digital nomad. One fine day the couple decided to make an exit from life of “normality” and venture into the mysterious. They quit their corporate jobs in America. But you know travel doesn’t come free. So, they did it with all planning. Working remotely, renting out their LA home, selling off cars were few to start Roamaroo, their travel blog or couple travel site featuring experiences of adventurous days and romantic nights. The blog captures luxurious and adventurous destinations around the world. Their key to-do trip would be to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. A stay in an over-water bungalow at Six Senses Laamu, Maldives doing scuba diving in the idyllic Indian Ocean was their most romantic vacation.

This couple left L.A. for the world, as they provide travel guides and inspire wanderlust for all. From romantic snowy moments in Finland to the white sandy beaches of the Dominican Republic, we’re in love with their love and their Instagram-worthy lifestyle.
12 countries and 6000 kms alongwith Jacob is what led to the birth of finduslost.com. Selena had a trade Los Angeles routine to fulfil her dream of living in Europe. Soon, Selena and Jacob took a road trip through the Balkans before settling down in Amsterdam. Whilst planning their first road trip, they experienced dearth of information and inspiration. And to fulfil this gap, Selena and Jacob happen to launch their blog and feature much needed travel guides. Now they are so much addicted to travel that they are often seen on road. The duo tied the knot in 2017 at a destination wedding in Kauai.
Their story is an example for many that what seems unattainable only couple of years ago can be achieved only with perseverance and sheer hard work.

22) Charles + Doranne |@ themerriedlife | 28.6k followers
Charles loves sky and Doranne loves her. Most of the times we feel, we happen to visit the most beautiful place but blame our poor photography skills or unavailability of sound camera to do justice to the place. Same thing happened to them as well when they decided to buy proper camera for their new project @themerriedlife. Their roles are divided but complement each other well. He captures memories and comes up with crazy photographs and she does the editing. The images on their gram feed showcase a spectrum of aesthetics with a mix of dreamy, happy and vibrant images. The couple took their wedding vows in Bali, a destination most would-be couples long to visit. They are the most fortunate ones having witnessed the Northern Lights. The most precious part of their travel journey is having an opportunity to spend quality time together with less human intervention.
The surprising thing about Doranne is she holds a full time job in Finance while Charles belongs to aviation. So, most* of the trips are extended weekend getaways minus two planned long trips that they take every year.
