Anna Faustino and Tom Rogers had a serendipitous encounter in Vietnam that sparked their adventurous journey together. In 2014, Anna captured Tom’s playful sand sledding mishap on her GoPro camera, and they bonded over their shared love for fun and travel. Anna, on a travel sabbatical at 26, had funded her adventures by teaching in the Philippines, while Tom, a recent aerospace engineering graduate, embarked on a year-long travel expedition.

Their paths crossed again in Dalat, Vietnam, just days later, and their connection grew stronger as they explored and shared stories. They took a spontaneous leap, leaving their belongings behind to embark on a motorbike adventure through Vietnam. Anna’s research led them to hidden gems, while Tom brought her ideas to life. After briefly parting ways, they reunited in Thailand, realizing the depth of their connection. Despite Anna’s impending return home, Tom altered his plans and visited her in the Philippines. Living together in Manila, they embraced new experiences and introduced each other to their respective cultures. Encountering challenges along the way, they persevered by supporting each other and building a profitable travel blog, Adventure in You. Now, with over 50 countries under their belt, Anna and Tom have decided to step back from being social media influencers, focusing instead on their affiliate site and team.

Although they contemplate settling down, they remain committed to a life of exploration. Their engagement in Turkey marked a significant milestone, and they plan to celebrate their experiences with a wedding in Greece. Wherever they choose to call home, Tom and Anna envision a future filled with shared adventures, appreciating the joy of experiencing the world side by side.
