Why Do We Travel?

An Experience Money Can’t Buy

After our first day of hand stamping leather for our new products, we went back to our work station in the fondouk to make even more leather tags. Although this part of developing LOOTB products is very time consuming, hand stamping the unique numbers into the leather is an essential part of Life Out of […]

Our New Home in Marrakech, Morocco

Every time we move to a new country, the first and most important thing we hunt for is a cheap place to live—key word being cheap. Lowering our cost of living abroad allows us to travel the world and keep reinvesting the money that we save back into the business, so finding a place within […]

A Hike Out of the Box

We went on a gorgeous hike in Big Sur when we were back home in California to show that getting out of the box can be done no matter where you are, even in your own back yard. Living out of the box can be anything you want it to be–it’s all about creating new […]
