About Find Us Lost
Find Us Lost is designed to inspire and inform your travels by featuring curated guides, unique destinations and experiences around the world. I hope to encourage people to create their own life of travel.
In 2016 I took a leap of faith and decided to trade my comfortable Los Angeles lifestyle for an adventure abroad. It had always been a dream of mine to live in Europe, so I convinced my then boyfriend, Jacob, (now husband) to move to Europe with me. We left that Spring for a three-month road trip through the Balkans, promising friends and family we’d share photos of our travels through Instagram before we relocated to Amsterdam.
Twelve countries and six thousand kilometers later, with Jacob’s help, we launched finduslost.com. My idea for our blog came from when we had planned our road trip — at the time, I was struggling to find a source of inspiration that combined beautiful photos with the information I needed to plan our stops. As a result I had used Pinterest to piece together our entire road trip. So, I decided our blog would focus on travel guides specifically designed to both inspire and inform people’s travels.
What happened next still amazes me. With our Instagram growing much quicker than we expected, we started receiving interest from brands to take photos and videos of hotels, destinations, and products while we traveled. Instead of spending the majority of our time at home in Amsterdam, we kept finding ways to be on the road. We fell in love with the creative aspect of what we had started together, and kept finding ways to improve our photos, share guides from the cities and countries we explored, research new destinations, guest blog about our trips, create videos together, and so much more.
It’s been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life starting a blog, and I’m still learning from it every day. I never knew that my passion for travel would lead to such a positive lifestyle change — one that seemed completely unattainable to me only a couple years ago! I hope my story inspires you to pursue the life you want, whether that means taking trips on weekends or becoming a full-time traveler.
