We met on the campus of Tennessee State University in the fall of 2013 and began dating soon after. While together, Erica got her travel bug while studying abroad in college and traveling to Turkey and South America. Christian got his travel bug from his spring break trips to Panama City Beach and 6-12 hours road trips to Columbus, Ohio, Washington DC, and St. Louis. Our first trip together was in June 2013 from a Groupon deal to the Bahamas. We paid $1200 total for flights, lodging, food and insurance to Freeport, Bahamas for 5 days and 4 nights. This successful trip led to the planning of Christian’s birthday trip to Hong Kong the following October and the rest is history.
We have traveled to every continent together and enjoy taking groups to explore different cities and countries across the globe. Our friends dubbed us as the traveling couple and always commented on us being on “Tour”. Traveling and “Touring” soon became a way of life and we nicknamed our travels Tour Life. This transformed into the brand, clothing line, YouTube channel, travel group and blog Tour Life Travels. Our hope is that the blog not only inspires other to see the world, but brings those dreams to fruition on a Tour Life Trip. We want others to know that traveling doesn’t have to be expensive. With the right creativity and planning, you all can travel just like us.
-Love you and see you on Tour
