Betsy and Pete Wuebker began their fifth year of location independence in 2015. They’re proof positive that happiness can be found in a simplified, travel-centered life. They’ve road-tripped, sold all their stuff, moved to a tropical island, and now travel the world full-time. Special interests are history, architecture, and off-the-beaten-path. 

"Deep Travel shares many of the same characteristics as “slow travel,” which is opportunity and time to take in what a destination has to offer to a greater degree than a casual visitor might have. Deep Travel rewards us with greater understanding, not only of differences, but similarities. Travel is truly the last remaining leveler of the human experience, connecting us with each other and our global community. Deep Travel intensifies our connection with and understanding of each other, our history and our world. Context Travel’s mission to create an atmosphere from which interesting and authentic impressions can be made satisfies both natural curiosity and desire for knowledge."
