To live fully in the present moment, choose love over fear, say ‘yes’ to adventure and blow through the limits of my comfort zone.

They sold all of their belongings, quit their jobs and took off to the Pacific where they would explore each other, their new surroundings and new perspectives.

On Ryan’s Instagram he wrote,

Sharing ourselves completely with our partner, we begin to shine light into all of the areas of ourselves that we have shrouded in darkness, making the seemingly unlovable, lovable once more. This is what it means to love unconditionally.

Beautifully put.

Molly wrote on her Instagram, “It’s crazy to think that only three years ago I was a cancer patient, seeing doctor after doctor in New York…”

“…When I think of where I’ve been in comparison to where I am now, I know for sure that anything is possible, that dreams do come true. I know that hitting bottom makes life at the top that much sweeter, that without the lows the highs would be meaningless.”

Ryan stated, “Most people go on journeys to find themselves. For us, it was more about letting go of everything we were not…”

“…Our favorite part of the journey has been the constant learning and growing and noticing how it has improved every other area of our lives. You really get to know yourself and your partner and you gain a brand new perspective on life, love and happiness.”

Well, Ryan answered, “Unconditional love is all abut accepting and appreciating another personal for all that they are, their beauty as well as their shadows…”

“…It’s about being completely honest and vulnerable, letting another person see all of you, and being met with compassion. Ultimately, you feel safe knowing that there is no thought, feeling to action that makes you unlovable.”

 “Traveling with your partner means nothing stays hidden, they see absolutely all of you: the good, the bad and the ugly…”

“…There are the romantic moments standing under waterfalls, and then there are the nights of holding each other’s hair in the bathroom when you both have Dengue fever. It turns out the less than glamorous moments are the ones I cherish most.”

Molly stated, “I lost my mind, but I found my heart…”
