Welcome friends, family, and visitors!

You’ve reached the travel logs of Jeremy and Jonas Raider, two brothers who upon graduating June 2015 were ready to do something different. Many months of brainstorming, planning, and saving up later, they spent thirteen months abroad, traveling independently/working throughout Africa, Asia, and Europe. See below for their latest published posts as they spend 2016-2017 finishing writing about their adventures.

Please note that the posts featured below are only the most recently published six. If you’d like to read through older posts and see the dates they traveled to each destination, please click Jeremy or Jonas’ full travel maps to see all of their past posts.
