Meet the Kurtz’s
We are a married couple who live a happy life in West Seattle with our 4-legged daughter….a chocolate labrador named Fischer. As we have traveled to various destinations over the years, it has become increasingly more apparent that there is too much to see in life to stay in one place for too long.
Our epiphany to take an Around the World trip came after a vist to see friends in Guyana in 2006. Seeing such a magical place with untouched beauty and natural character inspired us to find our bliss in other corners of the world.
In our everyday life, we enjoy weekend trips to our cabin on Whidbey Island and spending time with friends and family. Our life in Seattle is a picture of balance. We work hard and play hard. Shelly likes to shop and Nate likes to save. Nate likes to cook and Shelly likes to eat. Shelly is a nightowl and Nate is an earlybird. Nate likes to get to the airport 2 hours before flight time and Shelly tends to make an all-out sprint to the gate. On vacation, Shelly enjoys bartering with local merchants for ‘treasures’ while Nate explores the local cable offerings in the hotel room. Nate is a certified PADI diver and Shelly can’t go swimming without a flotation device….
We can’t wait to bring take our yin-yang style around the world to make new friends, experience new things, and explore new cultures together.
