We are Nikki and Dusty Green – a married couple originally from a couple of small towns in the Texas Panhandle, where we lived and worked up until a few years ago. That’s when we decided to let our love for travel lead us down a new path in our lives. That path has since taken us across the country and around the world, and enabled us to experience new cultures, meet lifelong friends and see some of our planet’s most beautiful sights.  For Dusty and Nikki’s adventures – http://blog.bestoftheroad.com/author/TwofortheRoad/
