Drone Video

We wrote a review of the DJI Spark, our travel drone that we absolutely love! Every shot in the video was taken on our Spark on trips to Spain, Vietnam, Seattle, Thailand, and more! It is compact, lightweight, easy to pack, easy to fly, and takes unbelievable footage!


A little about us

We met in Minneapolis in 2012 right after we both graduated from the University of Minnesota, and so began a whirlwind love affair. One complete with Zach standing outside Julie’s window blasting a boombox and Julie swooning over love letters written to Zach in perfect pen.

Of course, in reality our courtship was full of football tailgates, raucous cabin weekends, and of lots of travel! We would love to share our experiences, advice, and stories with you. That’s why we created lolglobetrotting!

We Created a Facebook Travel Community!

We launched the lolglobetrotting Travel Community to be able to talk advice, tips, suggestions and all things travel! The intention is for every member to be able to share their stories and advice on different places around the world! Click below to be taken to the page!

Travel Tips

Julie’s #1 Travel Destination at the Moment

Seeing the Northern Lights at the fjords of Norway. The Northern Lights are more of a visual experience than a destination, and we have never experienced them! From what we’ve heard, Norway has the clearest, brightest, most beautiful view, especially when framed by the famous fjords.

Zach’s #1 Travel Destination at the Moment

Hike the trail to Machu Picchu! Hiking the Inca Trail – talking the long trail, that takes upwards of a week – sounds like a mind-blowing experience. Hiking through Peruvian mountains and clouds, camping on the side of the trail, learning the culture and history that belongs to the trail, it all sounds overwhelmingly amazing!
