What happens when you mix the internet with a bunch of avid travelers excited to share their stories? You get a whole globe… explored!

Globe Explored is a joint project of 2TravelDads and Travelationship, two families who travel continually, capturing amazing experiences to share and help YOU plan your own adventure exploring the globe.

Whether we are sticking close to home or wandering through the mountains of Africa, Globe Explored is your go-to resource for finding vetted travel plans and hearing stories from the people out there blazing the trail. But it’s not all remote hiking!

The Explored Family of Blogs

Here’s where things get interesting. We, along with our besties around the USA and the Globe, are bringing all of our tips and mishaps, as well as our absolute favorite cultural and nature experiences, into one hub: the Globe Explored.

As we continue to grow our projects and business, we’ve learned that partnering with locals and avid travelers is a great way to share even more of what makes travel awesome. Given that we can’t be all places at once, we’re working with friends and operators we’ve met along the way to create a whole other collection of websites, perfect for planning unforgettable travel.

From Travelationship

An eco-friendly travel blog, Travelationship.com is run by Matt and Heather who have traveled to 67 countries on six different continents together. They are here to share their experience’s with you, to ensure you have the best adventure possible. It is also important to remember that we all only have one home and we are all responsible for taking care of it, so they will be pointing out destinations and companies that treat the environment with respect.

2TravelDads Share LGBTQ Experiences

2TravelDads is the original LGBTQ Family Travel Blog, blazing the way for other non-standard families to travel to previously overlooked destinations or places the LGBTQ community would normally avoid. We share the struggles we’ve faced and the surprising gems and welcomes we’ve had along the way. Traveling as a family is one thing, traveling as an LGBT family is completely something else. As the kids get older, more and more we’ve found that education and travel go hand in hand, so that’s become a guiding element as we continue on our parenting and blogging journeys.

St Augustine Explored – Florida Adventures Around the Oldest City in the USA

StAugustineExplored.com is a project in cooperation with both local writers and businesses in St Augustine. The website aims to be an organic planning tool for visitors to North Florida providing reviews, itineraries and directory listings of all tourism-centric elements of the Nation’s Oldest City.

We provide opportunities for local businesses to both provide information for the site as well as partner with us to share their story. Think of it as “Here’s where we went today. You can too!” about everything in our hometown.

Maine Explored – the Best of the Northeast USA

Maine is a gorgeous place that many people only dream of visiting. For those who do get to explore Maine, they see that it’s a very delicate place, balanced between the need for tourism and the scarcity of resources and infrastructure to sustain out-of-state travel. That’s where we come in! Working with local Mainers, MaineExplored.com is where we help people plan trips to and learn about Maine and hot to visit respectfully. It’s a very compelling project and one that we can’t wait to see grow.

Featuring unique and sustainable lodging, wildlife watching, and National Park and city guides, we’re making it the one-stop-shop for Washington travel!

The Keys Explored – Island Hopping in the Florida Keys

We spend so much time in the Florida Keys and area always bringing friends to the Keys that we just had to put all of that knowledge and energy somewhere. TheKeysExplored.com is our outlet for resort reviews, road trip itineraries, paddling spots and even recipes from the Florida Keys. Like with our other Explored sites, we partner with locals and tourism operators to share the best of the Florida Keys.

    Florida Keys restaurants and recipes are unlike any else. From fried grouper to Key Lime Pie, we’ve got the best places to eat in the Keys and how you can cook it all at home! The post Florida Keys Food: Restaurants & Recipes from the Keys appeared first on The Keys Explored.

    The towns of the Florida Keys are not as many as you’d expect. While the main keys along the Overseas Highway are well settled, there are only a few specific townships: Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon and Key West. The post Towns of the Florida Keys appeared first on The Keys Explored.

  • Florida Keys Hotels & Resorts

    Sharing the details of a hotel or resort experience is one of my favorite things to do, and the Florida Keys are full of wonderful places to stay. From luxury resorts to vintage roadside motels, the Keys have something for everyone (and nearly any budget). The post Florida Keys Hotels & Resorts appeared first on The Keys Explored.

    There may only the be Overseas Highway that connects all of the small towns of the Florida Keys, but there are many different ways to explore and lots of different road trip plans. The post Florida Keys Road Trips appeared first on The Keys Explored.

Travel Olympic Peninsula – Digging into the Rugged PNW Coast

I know: “Don’t you already have a Washington website?” Yes; we do, but the Olympic Peninsula region of Washington is very different from the rest of the state. Much like our project for Maine, TravelOlympicPeninsula.com focuses on planning responsible, respectful travel to the OP. Being a primary outdoors destination for Seattle residents, there’s a lot of traffic to the Peninsula and sometimes visitors don’t realize what they’ve signed on for. We’re here to change that and support people making informed travel decisions that they’ll love.

Savannah Explored – Coastal Georgia and the Most Picturesque City in the USA

SavannahExplored.com is so much fun to work on! We purchased a historic flat at Forsyth Park in Savannah, Georgia in 2021 and have been working on restoring it (a never-ending project) all the while exploring every facet of Savannah. From the Historic District to Tybee Island and the rest of Coastal Georgia, we’re sharing it all and working with local tourism partners to stay up to date on Savannah.
