Eight years have passed since we met underneath the stairs, deep within the confines of a middling PR firm in the Upper West Side. Karina, the budding publicist, and Brendan, the expendable Executive Assistant – we bonded over our desire to achieve bigger things and a mutual disdain for New York’s social scene. Soon we began meeting after work, adventuring further and further from the confines of the office. Then, we started seeing the world together. Each red-eye airport check-in and lengthy layover spurred a growing realization that we had found the person destined to explore it with us. Whether it was Venice, Istanbul, La Paz, or home in New York, we continue to find the best times in our lives have been when we can look across the table and see the smile we always want to be there.
