Jet Set and Forget: What does it all mean?
Forget what you know about travel
The “Jet Set” life is not just for the rich. We consider each journey full of rich experiences, from the food we eat to the people we meet in each country.
Forget your fears that travel is expensive
Travel does not need to be expensive to be amazing. Not only have we not paid for a flight for years, but we will show you how to avoid extra fees, without feeling like you are missing out on anything!
Forget about being afraid to travel alone
Some of the best trips are when YOU can do what YOU want, whenever you want. We will help you to be fearless!
Forget about your excuses
The only person stopping you from traveling is YOU! The only thing stopping you from living your best life possible is YOU!
The Dynamic Duo
Hi everyone! We are Zeke and Gina. We hail from the United States. We love to travel, so we ditched our “conventional” jobs to share our experiences and help you forget what you know about travel. What’s fun about us working together is that we are experts on a plethora of topics. You’ll hear from both of our perspectives along the way, sometimes as a joint super force, and other times as individual heroes. This sites blends our super powers into one mega blast of information!
Since we met later in life, we have mostly traveled separately, and just recently began excursions together. Some of what you read on this site will be from years past as individual travelers, and some information will be from recent trips together. Our friends and family are constantly asking us for travel tips, where to go in certain cities, how to pack their bags, and what to avoid; so we hope this blog can help answer any questions they and YOU may have about travel. We may even sprinkle some life lessons along the way!
We hope that our blog helps you to overcome any fears and dismantle any myths about travel you may have heard over the years.
Get to know each of us a deeper level
Hey new friends! I grew up in NYC, went to culinary school for college, found out VERY quickly that I didn’t like getting yelled at by sweaty chefs for hours on end in a kitchen; switched gears, and ended up with a degree in Hospitality.
Along the way, I worked for Disney, Starwood and Marriott. Twelve years later I took the leap of faith and quit my cushy job with the paid vacation and the 401k. Not sure what to do next or how to pay my bills, I did what came naturally to me. I got certified in jobs that required me to talk to AND at people.
I became a personal trainer and a licensed tour guide in NYC! Since I come from a corporate background, the extent of my travels were one week vacations at a time. One day I decided that I needed more than just one week vacations. I went on my first month long trip backpacking though Europe, and after that I was hooked.~ Gina
Hi everyone! I grew up in South Florida, making the big bucks doing sales and marketing, and then moved to New Jersey.
After working in event planning for a bit, I also decided to leave my corporate job behind, and became what all parents want their children to grow up to be — a nightclub DJ!
I have visited six of the seven continents to date. I have eaten my way through multiple countries, slept on too many hostel beds to count, and can sniff out the best travel backpack from a mile away.~Eze
