Our Story

A Life Engaged

Hello! Welcome to A Life Engaged. We’re glad you’re here!

Do you love traveling, food, or living life to the fullest? Then stick around a while and see if our stories can inspire you to try something new.

Our motto is to simply “Live a Life Engaged”. Engage in life in every way possible and never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life. We spent years of our youth focusing all of our attention on our careers that we forgot about personal development outside of work.

So, we took a career break to take a trip around the globe to engage in culture and learn about the world we live in. We share our stories and travel tips on this site so we hope you join us for some inspiration.

Love & Safe Travels,

Jess & Dan



About Us


We’re Jess & Dan…career accountant and digital advertiser by trade and travelers by choice. We met 3 years ago and instantly fell in love over a rack of ribs and a concert on our first date. Our first overseas trip together was to Australia where we enjoyed climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge and searching for Nemo in the Great Barrier Reef. Soon after, we got engaged and were jet-setting across the globe on a 5-month career break to explore different cultures and feed our wanderlust. We’re constantly on the move and when we’re not traveling, we’re planning our next adventure.
