Who Are We?

Mr & Mrs.

Roadtrips, weekenders, microadventures, & other itineraries for rooted wanderlusts.

Together, wherever. 

Andrew & Candice

Welcome to Almost Spontaneous.

We named it such because we, like many, have limited funds and full-time jobs that require us to be physically present at work, but we do have the appetite for travel, adventure, and exploration. We also believe that we need balance in our lives—having the means to be responsible members of society while having the ability to explore and enjoy what the world has to offer. Because of our lifestyle and being rooted wanderlusts, we have to have some foresight to strategically plan our trips and activities, but also have the flexibility to go on spur-of-the-moment adventures. So we have become avid fans of weekend travels, road trips, and microadventures, whether locally or beyond the Minnesota or even U.S. borders, in the hopes of making the most of every free time we have on our calendars.

Other than doing most of the planning, Candice is in-charge of storytelling through our blog and social media accounts. Andrew is usually in-charge of the exploration part of our itineraries—what actually happens during our trips—including doing most of the driving whenever we have to get in a car. (He enjoys the actual task of driving, whatever time of day.)

Most of our travels have been to the Philippines and to different states in the USA, but we want to expand our adventures to distant places in this blue planet. Our skills at finding the best weekend travel deals, even for international trips, have definitely improved since we consciously made a choice to travel more often. When we’re in Minnesota, we also do our best to check-out as much of the state as we possibly could.

We hope to reach out to busy and rooted wanderlusts, explorers, and adventurers, especially those who feel that they do not have enough time to travel and enjoy life outside of work. We want to share our experiences, knowledge, and skills to assure other rooted wanderlusts that it is possible.

Together, wherever,

-Candice & Andrew-
