The short version:
Mike and Hilary lived together in a tiny New York apartment. They yearned to travel, but realized that they'd be old and wrinkly by the time they got a chance to see even half the places on their list. So they seized the day, packed up their tiny apartment (it didn't take much space) and set off to see the world.
SpotHopping is their story.
About the authors
Aside from travel, Mike and Hilary both love scuba diving, hiking, and the preparation and consumption of food. They simultaneously embrace humility and hubris, which is very important on a trip like this. And they're both huge nerds.

Her words show up in pink.
They don't always squint so much.
