What happens when you say goodbye to your routine and do what you have been wanting to do for a very long time? This playful video shows how this dynamic duo traveled through Europe and Asia, thriving off of the cultures of each country that they settled in. They crossed borders, slept in many cities, danced in festivals, and stayed warm during the holidays.

As Ellie wrote in a previous article, “If you’re not wealthy (like moi), have no known international family across borders, and don’t have a publisher who can pay for your trip in advance like Elizabeth Gilbert in Eat, Pray, Love then crowdfunding provides the perfect platform to raise funds for your adventure.”

The two travelers have shown that though traveling can be something beautiful, fun, and adventurous, in the end, we all need help at times. Let’s commit to helping each other out when we can, whether raising money to travel for a week, a month, or a year, the time spent away can make all the difference in somebody’s life.

Where would you go if you can go anywhere in the world?
