Wander With Us.

A journalist and a photographer travel the world in search of the beautiful, the unusual, the forgotten and the mundane. Created in 2008, Beers & Beans began as a personal travel blog and labor of love that has now turned into an award winning travel site. This section is where we have all of our photos, stories, reviews and projects. So go ahead, pull up a chair, mix up a Dirty Shirley and wander with us.

Konichiwa. Bonjour. Hello.

Hi! We're Beth and Randy and we want to help you travel better. Our blog is all about providing inspiration for your own journeys no matter how big or small. We love documenting the world around us, seeking out eclectic travel moments and inspiring others to live the life they desire. Our preferred travel style is to go slow and bring Chachy, our little 10 pound hound! We also love volunteering on the road, especially at organic farms. Learn More Beers & Beans Bio Pic
