Our Story

Hello, hola, hallo, สวัสดี, xin chào, hodi and welcome to Getting Stamped! We’re Hannah & Adam just your average American couple until 4 years ago when we gave up the “American Dream” to pursue our love to travel. We’ve been traveling nonstop since 2013, with our passports in hand ever since we’ve gotten stamped in 66 countries and many more lined up. Here at Getting Stamped we want to blow your mind with amazing photography from around the world, introduce you to destinations you’ve never even heard of, travel guides, and much much more.

So now you are probably wondering “Did they win the lottery?” or “They must have inherited a fortune.” I wish it was that easy! We worked hard and saved as much as we could in 18 months. We met in college both got great jobs, Hannah as a tax auditor for the state and Adam a mechanical engineer. We worked our corporate jobs for 7+ years , we bought a house in a great neighborhood and lived a really comfortable life. We both worked hard, but Adam worked 50-70 hour work weeks and way too many weekends/out of state trips. We used every minute of our vacation but it was never enough. Shortly after we got married a buzzer went off telling us ‘It’s now or never’. We felt ourselves getting a bit too normal, and that’s scary. Our solution: Pack our bags and head out on an epic trip of a lifetime!

Meet Hannah: 30 something, Loves cats and beach days…

Putting her career as a tax auditor on hold for a  few years she’s master planner/scheduler and can always find an amazing deal. She’s in charge of the social media side of Getting Stamped and the voice of our FacebookTwitter, Snapchat and Instagram feeds.

Hannah’s perfect day would: start at a cat cafe for an iced mocha, a few hours laying out on the beach in Koh Lipe sipping on a strawberry daiquiri, get an hour beach massage, triple scoop of gelato as she has a slight addiction to ice cream, happy hour at a beach bar with her toes in the sand, eat spicy Thai chicken Penang curry for dinner, and end in a bed in beach hut hearing the waves crashing.

Web Design - Jobs to travel the world - Adam - Getting Stamped-1

Meet Adam: 30 something, Loves trying any and everything…

A Mechanical Engineer by profession, burnt out from the past several years working in the food processing world, ready to see the real world. Adam is the man behind the camera digitally documenting our trip. He also does the writing a majority of the posts describing our accounts of the world, designs and maintains the website, as well as runs one8web.com our website design business.

Adam’s perfect day would start with an amazing sunrise, preferably on a beach or in front of something amazing like, say, Angkor Wat (not because he is a morning person, he just likes to photograph them). After the camera gear is packed away, he would jump on a dive boat bound for a reef full of fish and colorful coral. After about 3 tanks it would be back to shore for happy hour and the sunset. For dinner would be green curry, followed by a Belgian beer (unlikely to happen in a beach restaurant, but he can hope). The perfect end to the night would be a massive bonfire on the beach surrounded by friends, and more beers.


Countries Visited

We have touched down on 6 continents and visited 63 countries to date. But PLEASE don’t ask which one is our favorite! That’s one of our least favorite questions, don’t make us choose like that!


Days on the Road

We left home in June of 2013 for a one-year round the world trip, that turned into 2-years, that turned into a lifestyle of travel. So far we have been on the road for over 1,000 days! 


Gb of photos

That’s not 11,000 photos… that’s 11,000 gigabytes of photos or almost 25 computer’s worth of pictures. Which is like 600,000+ photos or something crazy like that, but it was too big for the counter.

This is our story. Ready to start your own?

    We love Central America & Asia and can’t wait to spend months in each of them! But our safari in Africa is what we both are really looking forward to!

    Do you have any future travel plans? We just got back from 11 days in Tulum, Mexico which was amazing! Now we have to wait out the next 4 months before we depart!

    My wife and I (mid 30’s–no kids) will be in Thailand in early July for 2 weeks. How many days would you recommend staying in Bangkok? I was thinking of 3 nights but honestly have no idea. We’re heading to Koh Samui and Koh Phangan after Bangkok.

    Any and all advice is apreciated!

    • Adam
      Posted at 22:54h, 17 April Reply

      I think 3 night is just about right, you will have plenty of time to see the highlights in Bangkok, the markets, temples, Grand palace. 3 days would also allow time to do a day trip around the city too. Checkout the Thailand section of our blog https://www.gettingstamped.com/category/south-east-asia/thailand/

    Hey guys! Just discovered your blog through our friends Kim & Brian of So-Many-Places! Love that you, too, are ready to jump out into the world and experience a different type of life. My husband & I did a 14mth backpacking RTW in 2007-2008 and are currently working on becoming location independent nomads which will start with a very long drive down the Pan-Am to the tip of South America, our only undiscovered continent. Looking forward to following you along on your journey!

I stumbled across your awesome website just now, as we are planning a trip to Jamaica for 10 days and I was looking at all the travel blogs I follow to get other peoples experiences. Loved reading about your adventures, especially in parts of the world we haven’t visited yet – Caribbean! I particularly enjoyed the post on All Inclusive, couldn’t agree more! it’s not our cup of tea at all, even with children. We have been travelling for years now but only started blogging two months ago in preparation for our road trip from Sheffield, England to Bangladesh. Its always fun to find new great travel blogs to read, really enjoyed yours 🙂

    Adam, you are a man after my own heart, when it comes to beer, among the other things you mentioned. My quandary now is whether to stay in Belgium, the land of beer, or for Sabine and I to ‘just do it’, and go. On the other hand, Belgian beer can be found around the world, if you look hard enough. Den Anker, a Belgian restaurant at the Cape Town waterfront has about 30 varieties on their menu. I have found Leffe at some obscure liquor store on the edge of the Okavango Delta in Botswana. So although we feel like we are stuck or torn between 2 worlds….a land of great beer, or a world of other great things….like I say, you can find Belgian beer outside of Belgium 🙂

    Beautiful website! I love what you two are doing as a couple! My girlfriend and I just came back from a 6-month globe-trotting trip and can’t wait to do it again. Continue conquering the world one destination at a time.

    So jealous! I just hope one day I can find my partner in crime to travel the world with. But for now, traveling SOLO will have to do.

    Hi Adam and Hannah, I am a begginer in traveling. And I always wonder, Have you ever made an itinerary for all of your journey? Because I’ve never made one 🙂
    I need some advice how to enjoy the journey itself without any bound to any schedule . And I do really love all of your story.

    Wow, those are a lot of places. I see you have covered India pretty thoroughly. I live in Chennai, Madras to me. I am a photographer too. Have been for the past 47+ years. Yes! I am 65 and Eurasian.Since I plan on resuming my travel urge with photography after a few difficult years, my finding this site is the perfect timing.
    I have just read a little and like what I see. My two daughters do a lot of what you do and I guess my turn is coming soon. Probably from this December.
    Anyway just to keep things short. I like what I see and want to see more. Will read and occasionally make comments.
    You have nice site.

    Hey guys! What an inspiring story you two are! My wife and I are planning a 12 month RTW trip beginning in April 2017, and we have lots of questions! We lead a similar story as we both have great jobs in Austin, but there is more to life than the 9-5 job. We live in Austin and love it, but have a yearning to get out into the world! I think most of our questions will revolve around working on the road, and the best/most effective ways to manage a blog and social media. Would love some more input from you all if you have the time! Thanks and cheers from Texas!

    Hope you are well. We just went to Bora Bora. I understand the grind of a high level job at CBS. My wife and I love life, but give you guys credit for dropping it and seeing the world. My wife works for the cake boss so we get to travel a lot here and there. But nothing like this. Enjoy! What reef did you like the best? We are certified and really like Maui and islamorada.

    You two are such an inspiration! All my fiancé and I talk about is traveling the world. We feel that there is more to life then living 8-5 every day and staying in one spot your whole life. Would love to hear more about your story on how you started ! I’ve been doing some research and feel if we really want to see the world we need to get out and make it happen. Every day we feel like it’s now or never, and time is flying already! Thank you for what you do to keep people like me inspired!

    I’m reading about your trip to Cuba as I’m planning one for next year also.
    How did you get that interactive map? It’s so cool !!!

      Glad you found us! It’s one of our plugins, I think it’s a fun map. It’s a paid plugin, the free one’s we say weren’t as good.

    I just fell in love with you two after discovering your blog this morning. I’m inspired and just sent your blog to my husband. We love travel and vacation 4-6 times a year. However, this is so cool and something I want to create for ourselves! You guys rock!!!

    Hannah & Adam’s blog / site is amazing. Before heading to Thailand (for my third turn) I wanted to see if there were any new resources for where to go/what to see. That’s when I stumbled onto their site. Which was a blessing. Great info. Up to date. I was even able to get in touch with them about some of the places I was planning on hitting. Since it had been 7+ years since I’d been to Thailand Hannah gave me some insight on how things had changed in previously visited areas. I used to roam around with heavy lonely planet guidebooks. Now you just pull up their site and a quick guide on what to see/hit is right there. If you’re looking for good insight/intel on your next trip follow these two.

    I happened to surf onto your site somehow. It’s very detailed so thank you for taking the time to share the info! My story is the opposite of yours, I spent most of my mid 20’s to mid 30’s living and working abroad before coming back to Vancouver to start a life. Now I’m quite happy to take shorter trips throughout the year. I’m always happy to meet other people who have done similar things as it feels like meeting a kindred spirit!

      Glad you found us and sharing your story with us. There is no bad time to travel in your life. Where did you all work abroad? Some day we hope to work abroad and possibly start a family abroad. Where has been your favorite place to visit?

    I worked in Australia on a working holiday, a short stint in Qatar with the Asian Games, as well as in Zambia, Sudan, and Chad doing community development/humanitarian aid work. I also spent 6 months in Afghanistan with the army at one point as well. Iceland, Bhutan, Israel, and South Africa always come to mind for favourite places to visit.

    Have you considered trying to find something where you can work remotely so you can keep being abroad? I guess that would really depend on the type of industry you have experience in!

      It’s possible to find work just about anywhere in the world, if not on the ground in a country there are endless options of work to be done online. We work while we travel and have been on the road the past four years doing it this way! Sounds like you have it figured out too. Maybe we will run into each other somewhere in the world! Safe Travels!

    Just got back from visiting Cuba and your Trinidad guide is on point. Any tips on starting a travel blog like yours. Would love to be able to travel 24/7 and document. Thanks!

      So glad our Trinidad Cuba guide helped you out, there are so many things to do in Cuba. Traveling full-time has it’s ups and downs and it’s not for everyone that’s for sure. Safe travels.

    Hello! I love your site and lifestyle! I’m a college student right now and am having an extremely difficult time deciding on a major because I want to see the world and its cultures and everything that goes with it. I don’t want to waste my youth just sitting in an office or something with a puny 3 weeks per year vacation. I’m currently studying Graphic Design and am interested in multimedia including TV and Video. I’m also looking into a trade, too, for the pay. I’m still relatively undecided. Any advice?

    • Adam

      Hi Dylan – Thanks! We agree with you on not wasting your youth behind a desk! We would suggest doing what you’re truly passionate about. Once you have that figured out you can figure how to do it pretty much anywhere in the world. Graphic Design is one of the best things to do remotely, and you can find video work just about anywhere too. Good luck!
