Married“One outstanding virtue of Married with Luggage is its ability to segue neatly between travel adventure and relationship insights so that readers of either self-help or travelogues will find it equally satisfying: no mean fête, given these audiences are usually quite different!”
~ Midwest Book Review

A trip around the world…together

Think your relationship would survive it?

We weren’t so sure of our chances either, but after living, working, and traveling together 24/7, we’ve learned a lot about what’s important to a relationship – and (sometimes more importantly) what’s not.

We’re Warren and Betsy Talbot, and we’ve been married since 2004. That’s 10 years in regular human years, and a golden anniversary if you start clocking the hours we’ve spent together since selling everything we owned to live, travel and work together full-time in 2010.

The sheer volume of time spent together in ever-changing environments around the world and while trying to make a living has forced us to learn lessons it might take years or decades to learn in a more conventional setting.

And we’re happy to share the results of this life-sized experiment we’ve been living.

Married with Luggage: What We Learned About Love by Traveling the World is an inside look at a relationship in a state of constant discovery and challenge, with no one to depend on but each other.

In this book you’ll find the most unconventional lessons we’ve learned about love through adventures in dangerous, hilarious, and exotic scenarios around the globe.

  • Storm at sea off the coast of Antarctica? Check
  • Political coup in South America? Check
  • Erupting volcano 3 km from our hostel? Check
  • Living with Mongolians in a ger in the Gobi Desert? Check
  • Traveling across Russia by train? Check

All this and more shaped the state of our relationship and taught us more than we ever thought possible about love and communication.
