The first time Katie and Geoff Matthews quit their jobs for a life of travel was in 2009.
They sold almost all their belongings, including their home and two cars, and left with no clear return date.
They were on the road for about two years, traveling to South America, Japan, and Taiwan before they returned home to Vancouver, Canada in 2011 for a "normal life." But they realized soon realized life in Vancouver wasn't the normal life they wanted.
In 2013, Geoff left his job in sales for the construction industry, Katie quit her public relations and corporate communications gig, and they set out once again.
Now, they live the expat life, running their own business creating adult coloring books based on their original photos. They document travel tips, tricks, and experiences on their website, Wandertooth, and their Instagram, @Wandertooth.
