Edward and I moved to Bali to begin a new journey side by side. We are now living completely nomadically, following our dreams, growing our business, and traveling together full time! Our lives are moving at a rapid pace, and we are so grateful we followed our internal calls to leave the North American way behind and live another way. We decided a few weeks ago to combine our instagrams, to share our journey & our love from a shared platform. We literally spend 98% of our time intertwined, and that's the way we like it! Welcome to @therawexplorers- we hope our journey will inspire you to live in your truth and bliss each and every day, to follow all of your wildest dreams, and to live a life that fulfills every part of you! 🌿🤩🙏🏻✨
