About Where Are Those Morgans
We created Where Are Those Morgans travel blog as a resource for all those who dream of adventure. We think everyone should see what the world has to offer, whether that’s a 2 week holiday or long term exploration.
Storytelling is a gift travelers pass on to one another, filled with their best advice, so others may follow. We love to tell our stories to friends and family, but is it a waste of knowledge if we can’t share it with the world? Our blog is the platform for us to give you the knowledge to travel ‘harder, better, faster, stronger‘.
Travel has had a huge impact on our perspectives in life. We truly have grown individually, but more importantly we have grown as a team. Our outlooks are more expansive and we are grateful that we have had the opportunity to see some of this beautiful world.
Our purpose is to provide as much advice and support as we can for anyone who aspires to explore. Every guide we write is personally tried and tested. Every picture we use is our own. Every recommendation we give is because we loved it!
Where Did The Name Come From?
There are more layers to our name than it first appears. When we married in 2018, Kristen changed her name to Morgan, so we are the Morgan’s. Now that’s the obvious part covered! But the symbolism goes much further… our name and heritage takes us both back to Wales.
Mark’s Grandad, David Morgan, was from Swansea, Wales. Kristen’s great-great-Grandad was originally from Swansea, Wales as well. His name? Yep, you’ve guessed it, David Morgan. Hey! Get your head out of the gutter, we’re not related! Morgan also means ‘of the sea’ and our take of that is ‘exploration‘. Just a crazy coincidence but one that we couldn’t ignore when deciding on a name.
The “where are those” part was born out of our friends and families never knowing where we were! We’ve spent the majority of our relationship away from our home countries and the first question we always get is “so, where are you this time?” It very quickly became a running joke and we liked the play on words!
