We’re Taylor + Daniel.
We’re two adventurous types with an eye for the offbeat and a strange sense of humor.
Remember being a kid? Out of bed, we would peek at R-rated movies and look forward to sneaking bad words and lighting fireworks. Our parents told us to be patient. They promised that the entire world would open up to us someday.
Suddenly, we’re a whole lot older. Our ambitions of trekking through Chilean desert and watching the sunrise over Angkor Wat run wild, but we quell them with the expectation that there will be a time for adventure someday. In the meantime, we spend our workdays eating $15 superfood salads, our weekends hustling for fun, and the time in between dreaming up what we’ll do when we get the courage. Life should be lived a whole lot more courageously, shouldn’t it?
We say waiting for someday is too damn risky. Travel Outlandish is about going now.
We created Travel Outlandish to showcase the offbeat, immersive, faraway travel experiences. From alternative treks, to urban street art, to weird world festivals, to unique hotels, to cultural experiences, we catalog the details so all you have to do is get there. Whether you’re ready to take off on an adventure around the world or are saving up for a week away, we believe there is a life of adventure just beyond the grind.
If you like to travel a bit differently, have an appreciation for video and photography, and can stomach the bad puns, we think you’ll like our blog quite a lot.
Poke around the black bar at the top to find the destinations or experience types that interest you most!
more about Daniel + Taylor
he is daniel
the film maker and undisguised sports fiend. He may be working his way up in the directorial world now, but he was just 13 when he started sipping caipirinhas in Curitiba and he reads the Japanese translation of Good Night Moon like a true native. The only thing he loves more than travel is Sunday morning Looney Tunes reruns.
she is taylor
the photographer, writer, and breakfast ice cream aficionado. She got into travel after a semester of malaria scares in Ghana, and has since traveled a whole lot around Asia and South America. When she’s not on the road, you can find her planning theme parties or on the San Francisco muni collecting stories.
we go together, like…
Well, I guess we just go together. Since we met, Daniel and I have traveled through the US, Canada, Japan, Vietnam, and all over South America. Separately? We’ve been to just over 30 countries.
We met in the very weird city of San Francisco. Full of craft cocktail bars, strange street fairs, ethnic neighborhoods, street art, unusual foods, and incredible music festivals, San Francisco may very well be an alternative Shangri-La. If you have any questions about what to experience in San Francisco, check out our list of 101 fun + weird things to do in San Francisco, or reach out. We’d love to tell you all about it!
We’re currently traveling around South America, and aren’t too sure where our next home will be. For now, we’re just enjoying the break from San Francisco parking tickets.
