Far and Familiar Mission


The Faces Behind Far and Familiar

We’re Janet and David, a couple who loves to travel and explore places near and far. We met in 2014 and immediately connected over our shared love for great music and travel. Our first trip together was to Peru and we haven’t stopped since!  In the past year, we have traveled to New York City, California, Chicago, Iceland, and Mexico. When we’re not traveling, we are exploring our home city of Boston.

We created this website to record our journeys as we travel.  We also hope to provide our readers with great information in order to make the world a more familiar place!  We look forward to having you join in on our adventures.
