We’re David and Zena Bjorgen, a couple who love travel, culture, photography, and each other. We each started traveling with our families as kids and just never stopped once we became adults. Our travels merged together once we were married and we’ve been enjoying traveling as a couple ever since. We have lived abroad, but are currently based out of the United States. We maintain roots at home in beautiful North Carolina, while zigzagging around the world throughout the year.
Since we first started this site to document our travels in mid-2012, we’ve grown from 2 readers (each of us) to tens of readers today. Such a strong surge in readership has us patting ourselves on the back and congratulating ourselves for being awesome.
David hails from the great state of California. He started out studying architecture, eventually transitioning to graphic design, which eventually morphed into marketing, advertising, and web technology, all while pursuing photography. He is known for being a laid back guy who tries to live every day. So far so good.
David is half designer, half photographer, half adventurer, and half nerd. He’s also really bad at math.
Born in Jordan of Palestinian-Slovak descent, Zena speaks three languages fluently. She is known for her hospitality and ability to make personal connections with people from any culture or environment.
Zena is a teacher, a nurse, and a former professional athlete. She once accompanied His Majesty King Abdullah of Jordan on a tour of the United States. She also met Steve Jobs during a personal tour of Pixar. She’s pretty much the whole package, which makes David a lucky, lucky guy.
(and we don’t bite)
