One Couple. One World. One Lifetime to Explore.
Unpack Your International Side
We started PondHopping shortly after living abroad in Paris, when we realized that travel wasn’t just a hobby, but a necessity, a lifestyle. Travel isn’t something that has to be done all the time. No, we’re not as cool as those backpackers who live in a new country every 90 days, but then again we do have two amazing pets that we like to spend our time with (how many constant travelers can say that?), but we also think what’s so great about travel is that you don’t necessarily have to be abroad to experience the curiosity and adventure it provides! We make it a goal for ourselves to travel outside of the country every year, but we still make it our goal to explore our world around us. Curiosity is the key to adventure and opening yourself up to curiosity and the present will make your everyday that much more exciting. Let us be your guide to seeing the world through a new set of eyes, and let us see into your world by sharing your travel stories/daily stories with us! We share what we’re up to and would love to see what you’re up to! In the end, we’re just
One couple, in one world, with one lifetime to explore. See how we consciously choose to live in the present and make travel a reality. It’s time.

Or the time when I explained which metro to take due to la grève (metro strike!), to a native Parisian, I knew, pond hopping was definitely for me. I’m one of those people who are always antsy, antsy to explore, to learn, to have fun. I believe that curiosity is what drives the soul, and curiosity is a skill that anyone can achieve… Continue reading more about me!
From being a scout, a “Sherpah”, to a study abroader, I’m still an avid explorer and traveler and can’t settle in one spot for more than 6 months. Even through my university time I had to constantly move whether it was for the sense of change, difference in life, or just to mix things up. I was a scout only for the camping, the traveling, and the adventures. As a Sherpa, or the bass player of my high school blues/rock/fund fusion band, “The Sherpahs,” I explored different styles of music and guided our audience up the musical mountain experience… Continue to read more about me!
