About Vangabonds

Okay, so we don’t actually own a van, but CR-V doesn’t really fit into “vagabonds” like the word “van”, does it?

At UGTOWe are the Kietzmans, a 30-ish couple who embarked on an open-ended international journey in our “van” with our two dogs in 2012. Originally both from Kansas, we met and married as Jayhawks before moving to North Carolina (raise up!) in 2008. Four years later, the wind led us in a different direction, and we found ourselves driven towards location independence that we might have fewer limits and greater flexibility in our pursuit of furthering the experiences and lessons of living in new places. Now, living as digital nomads, we work online from wherever we happen to be, which for two years included a slow drive through the Americas, from Canada to Argentina and the southernmost tip of South America before we looped back north to Brazil in 2014 for a wild World Cup month and a bittersweet flight back to the United States. Our current home is in Kansas City, Missouri, but check at the top of the page to see if that’s where we are today or take a look at our route to see where we’ve been.

In addition to travel information, we consider this a lifestyle blog through which we hope to share resources and interact with various communities. You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter and also have new content emailed to you by subscribing on the right side of the page. Please feel free to contact us at anytime.
