“Live life on the go, in the moment, on a budget.”
For those traveling on a budget, digital nomading, leading a location independent lifestyle, or a couple or family of any kind – we are your resource. By compiling first-hand experiences and in-depth, we will show you how to get off the beaten path on a budget. Transportation, accommodation, food, activities, culture – all of it, we aim to provide you with a guide to it. Whether you want to explore the posh streets of Seoul and Dubai, to wandering the ancient temples of Angkor, we’ll take you there.
While we speak from the point of view of Americans, we encourage all nationalities to use and enjoy our site. Our guides and information are designed to the best of our abilities to be accessible to anyone and everyone.
What will you find?
Serene buddhist temples, where you’re the only one besides the residing monk. Finding your way to the top of a mountain with a metropolis below. Navigating your way through mass-transit in a foreign city. Hopping on a motorbike and finding your way through Vietnam. These are just a few the experiences that we have to bring you relevant information to help you in your travels.
We know that you want real information, from real people, in real life. At Married with Maps, you will get our information on living abroad. From the activities to engage in, to managing your taxes, budget, and jobs – we are here to guide you through it.
Not everything is seen through rose-tinted glasses. We’ve had our hardship, and we’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way. There have been let downs, pleasant surprises, and a few bizarre happenings. All our experiences come together to give you informed and curated advice, tips, and tricks to living like a local.
We show you how to stop acting like a tourist, and to start living like a local. Delve deeper into the local cultures – learn how to become a true traveler.
Who are we?
Briana and Kyle are a married American couple. Avid travelers, the two have been on the near constant move since marrying in 2015. They met in college, and after graduation immediately began traveling.
It began with a couple cruises, and a few moves in the US between Florida, Texas, and California. But the big jump came after a hiccup with jobs. We jumped to a house sit in South Korea and from there, life became about living life on move, in the moment, on a budget.
With over a dozen countries visited together as a couple, and far more collectively over our individual lives. We are documenting our experiences around the world and want to show you how to explore the world without breaking the bank. We’ve even been recognized for a Liebster Award.
Why the name?
We are “Married With Maps” because we are indeed, married with maps. It all started with our collecting trail maps while hiking in California. We also enjoy consulting the world map, thinking about where we want to go next, and just looking at all there is out there to explore. Despite all the maps, we still excel at getting lost.
Where are we now?
Currently, we are residing in San Jose, California. Our focus at the moment is in further development of our content and checking out places a little closer to home. That does not mean we’re stopping our travels by any means. We have international adventures planned and well as more local – all of which we aim to help you enjoy.
