About us

Here we are exploring the Myvatn region of Iceland, one of our first stops

Have you ever wondered what your life would look like if you removed all the day-to-day pressures and thrust yourself into the unknown? That’s what we wondered too, so in June, we hit the road with nothing but two backpacks and a goal: to live our ideal year.

After years of working as a physician in San Francisco by day (and composing electronic music by night) Gaetan yearned to pursue his musical passion full-time. After nearly a decade working in tech (and maxing out her PTO to travel) Xenia wanted take some extended time off to gain new ideas and perspective while exploring the world. When we met, everything came together just right…

This is the story of what happens when two people venture out into the world to pursue their passions without looking back.
