Who Are We?
This site was originally created to chronicle our grand adventure around the world and maybe inspire a few folks in the process. But since its creation, it has morphed into a place where we share our passion for travel, food, entrepreneurship, & all things that make us happy.
Since we are spending so much time trying to make ourselves happy, we thought it might be a nice idea to give back as well. That’s why we started the “All Things Ridiculous” newsletter. Every month we share some of the craziest videos, pictures, and stories from around the web in the hope that we can make the hours spent at your desk just a little more joyful. Sign up below if you’d like to receive this monthly newsletter!
We are currently trying to make this crazy lifestyle permanent and share every stride and stumble we take towards this goal.
We have hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, been pickpocketed twice on the same subway ride in Buenos Aires, dined like Anthony Bourdain in Croatia, and have experienced every kind of nightmarish travel toilet story you can imagine….
Our hope is that we provide you with a dose of inspiration along with some helpful resources. If it’s your first time to LandingStanding, you might want to read a few of the stories below.

What The Heck Does Landingstanding Even Mean?
That’s the first time we’ve heard that question…. but here is how we (and Webster’s soon enough) define it:
The act of leaping without looking, loving without fearing, and dominating anything life throws at you while never losing balance (well almost never). As in: “I quit my job to travel the world and will hopefully end up on my feet… you know, landing standing.”
So Who Are We… Really?
If you really want to know… well, we are Tony & Meg. A married couple in our 20′s that studied entrepreneurship in College and are now desperately racing to figure life out before our 30′s. Want more? Than you can read all About Us.
Follow along as we take wild leaps into the unknown and scramble like hell to land on our feet. [Now you get it, right? We're trying to end up... LANDINGSTANDING]
