Who are we?

We are a travel couple set out to live the unconventional life.

Why the Name?

Journey of a Compass. A name that seems to tell a story. And that’s what we love about it.  Our story is the adventure we have chosen to live. Guided by a compass and direction to see the world.

It’s a mission and a mantra to stay true to who we are.  To live a life that is guided by experiences, rather than things.

I used to think home was a place.  That it was the comfort of coming back to your apartment after a long day, to settle down with a glass of wine and a movie.  We had a sign in our apartment saying “Home is where the heart is”.  For the longest time, I thought that was my apartment.  Until I felt endlessly restless at home.

Since Michael never felt any true attachment to one place, that’s when we realized our home was travel.  Together as a team, the world becomes a playground.

As a traveler, home becomes the world. Home becomes you and the people you are with.  A state of happiness, a state of being, that allows you to find comfort in your surroundings.  Whether you find yourself at the top of a mountain in Nicaragua or in a chaotic market in India, home becomes the familiarity of that high.  That state of pure bliss. 

Yes, I do get homesick.  But a couple of things make it easier.  The connections we make along the way, the communities that we discover, and having a travel partner who complements me in every way.

We are never truly at home any one place I go.  This is why the Journey of a Compass is who we are.  An adventure led by our hearts, taking us to all the corners of the world.  Whether it means hitchhiking in the far East or Van Life in North America.

Who knows what our Journey entails and that’s what we love about it.
