We are Zach and Carrie, an American married-but-not-boring backpacking couple collectively known as “Zacarrie”. Travel gives us inspiration and hope for the world. Our site brings all of our stories together through words, photography, and video and we hope you can find inspiration as well.
Why “La Aventura Project”?
Our first big trip together was a 7-month backpacking adventure through the Spanish-speaking world of Latin America! Since then we’ve continued to budget travel through other continents, having many “aventuras” along the way!
Where We’ve Been:
In 2011 we left our cozy lives in the United States to backpack through South America and Central America eating, writing, and exploring along the way. We hiked to Machu Picchu in Peru, explored the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia, and witness the eruption of a volcano in Ecuador.
In early 2017 we hit up Mexico and Cuba in the brief time that we were allowed to go there by the US government. In late 2017 we quit our jobs, sold everything, and embarked on a huge road trip through the West Coast National Parks. We lived in our tent and focused on rock climbing, stopping at our 4th Burning Man along the way. After the Burn we flew over the pond to Southeast Asia to start a new life as digital nomads in Thailand.
Our newest projects are our yoga and adventure retreat company Bigger Life Adventures and our marketing and social media agency Global Traveler Networks. Check out their pages for a whole lot of awesome!
