Hello! We are B and R. A couple of average Janes who love to travel. That is really all you need to know about us. But if you want to know more…

More about us…

We are friends and roommates with normal, eight-to-five jobs that provide us with decent, but not extravagant, incomes and vacation time. During our time off, we enjoy exploring this great big world. And although we very much like a nice, long trip to Europe or Australia, we also appreciate a weekend road trip to somewhere in our home state (which is Idaho by the way). Big or small, every trip can be an adventure.

For the record, when it comes to traveling, we are not experts. Let’s say it again for good measure: we are not experts. But we have a love and a passion for it. A good portion of our free time and an even bigger portion of our paychecks go towards that love. And we thought we might share a little of our passion with you.

Our style is not for everyone. In fact, it is probably only useful for a niche group of people—other Janes like us.


…you enjoy a good deal on travel but are no longer willing to sacrifice all comforts for a cheap ticket, we are right there with you. (Dorm beds in a hostel are pretty much a thing of the past for us—even though we’ve got some great memories from our time spent in them.)

…you want to see a bit of world but only have a few weeks a year to do so, we feel your pain and can relate.

…you are low-key and low maintenance, well, welcome to the club. We are a bit more concerned with what we are looking at than what we look like.

Did any of the above statements resonate with you? If so, awesome. Let’s be friends!

But if…

…you want to travel with kids, there are a lot of good resources available to assist you with that. This blog is not one of them. We do not have the first clue how to travel with children.

…you are looking for a luxury vacation, you had probably better move on. We would like to know more about luxury travel ourselves. But alas, our current financial situation does not provide us with the opportunity to taste the high life.

…you like a party scene, we recommend you look to other resources. We do not frequent the hottest clubs or the trendiest bars and are therefore useless to you.

…you fancy yourself a fashionista, keep in mind that we are not. As mentioned above, we are efficient and low maintenance. Sure, we try to look cute when we travel. But since we are more concerned with packing light, we haven’t quite mastered it yet. So until then, you might want to try another site.

If any of the ‘but’ statements above did not resonate with you, then it looks like you are still in the right place. In our future posts, we will do our best to provide you with useful travel tips and tricks. And feel free to contact us. We would love to hear from you.


Hello and welcome to Jane Sees the World. We look forward to sharing a little bit of our travel adventures and experiences with you.
