About Meg & Tony

Meg and Tony here! We’re a young married couple that put a few years into the corporate world and yearned for something different.  We discovered that we shared the dream of traveling abroad and seeing the world like locals and decided to make it a reality.

The blog kicked off in January, 2012 to document our year-long RTW journey. We began in Santiago, Chile and visited various places in South America, Europe, Southeast Asia, and Oceania.

LandingStanding initially was created to chronicle this wild adventure around the world in 2012, but has since morphed into a site documenting our love for both travel and food — and our love for our new home base in Portland, Oregon.  We hope that LandingStanding will serve as an inspiration to others with the same passion for travel and will be a helpful resource on how to make it happen.

We discuss our successes and failures on the road and provide friendly tips and suggestions on how to make travel as awesome as possible.  Please help us grow and inspire — Let us know in the comments what you would like to learn more about!

Why “LandingStanding”?

LandingStanding is a phrase that represents that no matter where we go, no matter what happens, we (try to!) Land Standing…  We also just like rhyming! :)

About Meg

“Carpe diem” is my favorite cliche and also my motto.  I am a high-energy girl that loves being active (and the naps that follow), spending time outdoors, eating (A LOT), and partaking in any water sport under the sun.  Tony often teases me for becoming claustrophobic when I have been in one place for too long.  More than anything, I have always had a passion to travel and explore new things.  I was fortunate enough to marry a guy that shares these same passions and wants to share them with me.


About Tony

Besides being most often described as indescribably handsome with a wonderful taste in women (see above), I love traveling without advanced plans.  While this might get me into trouble on my own, I’m lucky that I married a woman who was born to travel plan. Together, we share our different perspectives on travel and our shared philosophy on life through this site and our many social media accounts.
