Introducing Elizabeth and Josh of Peanuts or Pretzels. They’re married travel bloggers who absolutely love traveling around the world, and learning about the culture and people who live there. They enjoy sharing their travel experiences and helpful tips with other through their blog, Peanuts or Pretzels. They’re always up for laughter, a good adventure, and a bit of geocaching too!
They enjoy geocaching because it’s a reason to venture into the unknown. “Every cacher does it differently, but we mainly go for caches outside their city because it gives us a reason to explore new places,” they said. “The amazing thing about geocaching is that it’s a treasure hunt that not everyone knows about. So in a way, it’s our own secret to exploring a destination!”
They really enjoy geocaching internationally, because it can take them off the beaten tourist path. “ An example would be the secret hiking trail we found along a mountainside in the Scottish Highlands, with an amazing view out over a misty loch that no tour book mentioned,” Elizabeth said. “Or, the hidden Butterfly Temple we found at Angkor Wat. There were thousands of tourists swarming the main temples, but we were the ONLY people exploring this one…all because of a geocache!”
Geocaching has also taken them to some popular sights during their travels; like the clever micro-cache they found hidden under a railing in the middle of Dublin. “It was a fun challenge to navigate to this cache without attracting any attention of the ‘muggles’ (non-geocaching folk),” Josh said. “Having our Garmin GPS in our adventure bag during our travels keeps us prepared for the next find, or to keep us from getting totally lost!”
For Elizabeth and Josh, life’s about having fun, being open minded, learning from others, and enjoying every day. Be sure to check back as we follow Elizabeth and Josh on their upcoming adventures!
