WELCOME TO THE BEATING ROAD!
We are happy to have you here with us!
START HERE and...
We can assume you are here because you have an interest in travel. Maybe you are just starting out and looking for motivation to help inspire your first grand adventure, or maybe you are a seasoned traveler looking for new perspectives or ideas for your next trip. Well, whatever the case, we hope to lend a hand in inspiring your inner wanderlust.
Creativity is driven by passion, and for us travel inspires creativity. The Beating Road was developed with the intent to provide a creative outlet and a way for us to share stories and photographs from our travels around the world (follow our RTW trip here). Our goal is to provide our readers with useful information that has helped us along the way. You will find travel guides, functional travel and budget tips for long term travel, our personal stories and experiences on the road, and visual stimulation through photography. Although we have decided to leave our jobs and travel full-time, we understand that this is not a feasible option for many people. With that in mind, we have created travel guides and tips for the short term traveler.
Last but not least, The Beating Road is bilingual! Since our native tongues are English (Jess) and Spanish (Pedro), we decided to go big and have a fully functional bilingual site. Spread the word!
We realize how fortunate we are to be able to travel and it’s our top priority to be cognizant of the world around; to travel in a way that is both ethical and sustainable. We are far from perfect but always try our best to travel according to our principles: striving to support local businesses and communities, rejecting and condemning any kind of human or animal mistreatment for touristic purposes (or any other), and showing inherent admiration and care for our Mother Earth. We are on a quest for discovery and fulfillment and we want to achieve that in the most respectful manner. After all, we are the travelers, the privileged.
We are determined to choose quality over quantity. We prefer to travel at a slow pace, seeking out an authentic travel experience by immersing ourselves into the history, customs and culture of a place. This is not something that has always been easy for us in the past, as we found ourselves wanting to see and do everything!
For us, traveling is all about finding the right balance. We consider ourselves to be budget travelers, backpackers at heart… but not extremists at all! We like to think of ourselves as open-minded individuals that want to live a wide spectrum of experiences in many different places, flowing with each moment, adapting to each context and enjoying the uniqueness of every experience.
