From Larissa & Michael: In 2011 we sold everything and took off from Philadelphia for what we thought would be a year-long journey around the world with a Rocky statue. After embracing a much simpler lifestyle, we're still on the road. We've traveled to six continents, visiting an array of countries from France to Australia to North Korea and beyond. We travel slowly, staying in apartments and immersing ourselves in the local culture. As global nomads with no fixed address, we now call the world our home.
Along the way we became full-time travel writers and chronicle our experiences for the Philadelphia Inquirer, Huffington Post and other media outlets. Our first book, Philadelphia Liberty Trail: Trace the Path of America's Heritage, is now available! Through the miracle of the Internet you can order this exciting new approach to touring Philadelphia's historic district by clicking on the book cover below. In May, 2015 it was a winner in the book category at the Society of American Travel Writers Eastern Chapter Awards.

Where’s Little Rocky?
We're from Philly so we're traveling around the world with a Rocky statue.
After 4 years on the road, Little Rocky is retiring. Here he is at Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas on his final road trip.
