About The Guest

Sam and Veren, aka the Alternative Travelers, like to travel slowly on a budget while following a sustainable, vegan lifestyle. After leaving New York in early 2016 they realized that it’d be cheaper to travel than living in one of the most expensive cities in the world. After two years of living in Madrid, Spain, they now travel full time via house sitting.
