Welcome to our website!
Two Steps Far is a website for us, Megan and Bryan, to share snippets of our lives with our family, friends and whoever else may enjoy reading. When we got married in late 2004 we started a website with photos and stories from all our travels through Europe called The Union. We decided in 2009 that we missed this medium for sharing what we have been up to.
Origins of Two Steps Far
The name Two Steps Far comes from a memory that we share from what we look back on as a really happy time in our lives. As newlyweds we spent a semester studying in Rome. Our classes were basically walking tours of the city, and our teachers our guides. Our High Renaissance Art teacher, had a thick Italian accent and liked to use certain phrases over and over while we trailed behind giggling. She was always telling us “I want to make you see…” or that something was only “two steps far” away. These three words will always remind us of our first and greatest adventure and has come to define our philosophy and approach to life where our next adventure can only be two steps far.
With this philosophy we will continue to strive to travel the world, try new things, and shake things up. Even though it is not always easy, we are working toward living this way all the time. Doing the things we love like traveling, learning new things like gardening or sailing, breaking routines and being active makes us feel like we are really living. Breaking routine with activities out of our ‘comfort zone’ and out of the ordinary give us the kind of unique experiences that enable us make memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. We try to approach our time now in terms of the kind of grandparents we want to be many years from now. Hopefully really cool ones with interesting stories to tell, so many that we never have to tell the same one twice.
