“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” – Lao Tzu

Hello There! Welcome to This World Uncovered. I had to start my about page with that quote from Lao Tzu. It is not only true in traveling, but also true with pretty much everything in life. Whatever it is that you are wanting to achieve in life you must always take that first step. You can plan and dream all you want, however without taking that first step you will remain where you have always been….

Who Are We?


I am Rafael Santiago and the Beautiful women next to me in the picture above is my lovely wife, Jasmine Santiago. That picture was taken exactly two years ago at our honeymoon in Nassau! That is when it all started. That is when we realized we needed to take that first step towards our dream. We never lacked desire or passion, it was time and money that was always our major setback.

We do not have a fancy story about how we sold all our belongings to travel the world, or how we quit our jobs and risked it all to live only on our savings. I admire those that make that decision and risk it all to follow there dreams. We however decided to be a little patient and start our own business. after many sleepless nights and overwhelming exhaustion we now own a business that runs mostly on its own. As we discover our planet we want to share each and everyone of the experiences with you.

Our purpose!

“Travel as much as you want, you can always make up the money but you will never make up the time”

We created this blog because we want to inspire and motivate each one of you to pursue your dreams. Everybody can do it. You just have to be determined and believe in yourself. We want to share the world through our eyes. Traveling does not have to be expensive. It does not have to be to the other side of the world. You just have to take the first step and we are here to help you.
