Words to Travel By

We have picked-up/invented some travelling lingo as we have begun to prepare for our around the world journey.  If you ever get confused by something we say, read this and see if it all makes more sense.  If it still doesn’t… well that’s what happens when business school grads try their hand at the written word.


Definition: To be frugally awesome; to travel the world and land on your feet; this ridiculously interesting blog

Importance to Us: Since we started and failed at our first blog, also named LandingStanding, the phrase has become our battle-cry.  Whenever we save money: LANDINGSTANDING!  Whenever we figure out another piece of our trip: LANDINGSTANDING! Whenever we are just generally awesome: LANDINGSTANDING!  Learn to love it!



Definition: Abbreviation of ‘Round-the-World which is itself a slightly shortened version of Around-the-World (hopefully that was obvious).

Importance to Us: When writing on our around-the-world travel planning and approaching trip, the reduction in typing extends our onset of carpal tunnel syndrome by at least 3 years.  Plus, it just sounds hipper, right?



Definition: To wander in the manner of a vagabond : roam about

Importance to Us: We first picked this up after reading the book, Vagabonding, by Rolf Potts. This book is our travel inspiration as it made us think one of the most powerful thoughts there is… why not us?  The term vagabonding is our code word for everything we are running towards in 2012: freedom from a daily job, freedom to spend everyday together, and freedom to explore the world.



Definition: A strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world

Importance to Us: Pretty obvious, no?  If you’re still confused take a look around the site and maybe glance at the About Us page.  We have officially been diagnosed with a major case of wanderlust and hope we infect all of you as well!
