       La Dolce Vita 

Mike and I met in 2016 at the Farmers Market in Laguna Beach. We booked our first adventure 2 months later to go biking in New Zealand. Together we bungee jumped off a cliff at Lake Taupo in the north island.

We survived and thrived ...and married 2 year later.

Our adventures have taken us paragliding off a mountain in Lucerne, Switzerland, hiking through the bush in Zambia in search of the elusive white rhino and covered in bees at a bee farm in Tucson, Arizona. 

I hope you enjoy our adventures and misadventures as we travel the backroads together

  Ciao for now,

  Nancy and Mike
