“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” – Lao Tzu
Hello! Welcome to This World Uncovered. I had to start the about page with a quote from Lao Tzu. It is not only true in traveling, but also true with everything in life. Whatever it is that you are wanting to achieve in life you must always take that first step forward. You can plan and dream all you want, but if you do not take that first step you will always remain where you have always been.
Who Are We?
I am Rafael Santiago and the Beautiful lady next to me in the picture is my lovely wife, Jasmine Santiago. That picture was 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. Time and money 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 of our savings. I admire those that make that decision and risk it all to follow their dreams. We 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, for the most part, on its own. As we discover our planet we want to share each experience with you.
“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 and believe in yourself. We want to share the world through our eyes. Traveling does not have to be expensive and it does not have to be to the other side of the world. Even where you live there might be many areas that you have yet discovered. You have to take the first step, and we want to help in any way we can.
