Dylan is a 26 year old Medical student who originally grew up in Portland, Oregon. In 2003, he moved with his family to his mothers home country, Costa Rica. Hilary is a 25 year old Pharmacist from Alajuela, Costa Rica. 

Like many couples around the world, we met simply through chance, in January of 2011 in the first months of our freshman year at college. The rest is history. 

Travelling, photography and writing are amongst our greatest passions, so one day on our four year anniversary dinner, we decided to make life more interesting and take a chance on doing what we love by creating this blog. 

We wanted to find a new way to connect intimately between ourselves, express our feelings, thoughts and desires and motivate others to pursue their own creative or adventurous dreams and passions.


Any person who travels the world has someone at home waiting to hear about their experiences and adventures. They want to know everything about their trips, what places they visited, what food they ate and what new people did they meet.

In all of our trips, it was the same for us, and we would always tell each other “I cant wait to tell you when I get home” - and that’s where our name came from.

But just like in our lives, were we do nearly everything together, we wanted the name of our blog to express the same unity, and the phrase when I get home changed to when we get home.

So, when we get home for our trips, we hope to show you the places we visited and encourage you to begin your own journey to whatever roads lay ahead.
