Living the Dream

Ahu Tongarki Easter Island

Living the Dream is a lifestyle design blog that focuses on travel, travel blogging advice, and digital independence topics.

The site was founded in 2008 to chronicle a long-term trip Jeremy was planning from 2010-2011. That trip came and went, his wife Angie (contributing author) came into the picture, and in 2013-2014 they took another, much larger trip together. Since then they made a permanent base in Pittsburgh, travel internationally frequently, have featured long-term trips from several staff writers, and now focus on the three main content styles outlined above.

Jeremy’s travel passions include adventure travel, visiting off-beat destinations, exploring local culinary and libation scenes, and providing practical guides for others looking to do to the same. He has visited over 70 countries on five continents.
