Hey guys and gals! We are Jesse and Lauren Stuart, or as you’ll come to know us as “The Stüs” from The Wandering Stüs. Born and raised in the middle of the United States, St. Louis, Missouri to be exact. We’re a free-spirited couple whose appetite for adventure and faraway places fuels that wanderlust itch…. and that itch is something we always give in to! 

We quit our corporate jobs in 2016, placed our Missouri lives on hold and sold some stuff (a lot of stuff) in order to fulfill a dream. The dream of making time for ourselves, living in the now and exploring the beautiful people and places Mother Earth has to offer. You know, all that good stuff.

We set out with 65 liter backpacks and boarded that one-way plane to Bangkok. We spent 8 months traveling around Southeast Asia and Nepal. Now, we’re back to bring you and everyone you know all the tips and tricks to help you plan for your next adventure, no matter how big or small. Oh and no worries, we have loads of future adventures planned. We’re not stopping here, just a short layover until the next one.

Travel is necessary and we have every intention to explore. Follow along with us on our journey.
