About Larissa & Michael
We’re a midlife couple who have been exploring the world full-time since 2011. After 25 years of marriage we sold our house, ditched most of our possessions and took off to travel around the world for (what we thought would be) a year. Along the way we discovered that travel is our true passion and resolved to turn our “adventure” into our “venture.” Changes in Longitude is a travelers blog where we share our experiences, showcase unique destinations and provide tips for fellow travelers.
Since we began our odyssey we’ve visited over 70 countries, 6 continents and all 50 states. We’ve taken a self-drive safari in Africa and gone truffle hunting in Italy. We discovered the secret to visiting Angkor Wat without crowds, and swam with sea lions in the Galapagos. Closer to home, we’ve learned Anchorage, Alaska and Buffalo, NY are terrific cities to visit.
Along the way we’ve also figured out ways to make travel easier (or sometimes cheaper), and we share those tips with you. Whether it’s a free pdf copy of a Better Paris Metro map, an insider tip on currency conversion, or how to choose the best spinner suitcase, we’ve got you covered.
But how did we get here?
