I went to Marquette Univ er s ity. Pretty normal. It's a medium-sized Catholic school. Milwaukee's a very cool town. It has a really cool waterfront. They have a really great music scene. Life downtown is really alive.

I was able to travel throughout college. Traveling is my primary passion. My parents started that. They're big on being in other cultures. They had us in Chinatown, fending for ourselves, when we were in middle school.

The coolest place I've ever been is a place called Lion's Head. It's a small mountain in the middle of downtown Cape Town, South Africa. On the full moon, all the townies get a bottle of wine and hike Lion's Head. You can see the sun setting over the ocean out of one eye and the moon rising from the other eye.

Three things I can't live without are apples, my Rand McNally road atlas and a disposable camera.

This summer, I wanted to come home and hang out . Most importantly, I wanted to be here for Pete's soccer season. I haven't been home for a Buckeyes season. I'd like to go abroad again soon.

During our quest, we're trying to do as many trucks as we can find. Pete and I are learning a lot about Columbus in a cool way. We hope by the end of this we'll be able to order in Spanish and maybe hold a conversation. It's a good chance to be together.

We have a ranking system on our Facebook page. Definitely a friendly attitude is the first thing - if we can have a personable conversation. We like when a truck has a special item. We go to this one called Las Delicias, and they have ice cream.

I don't ever imagine myself doing something for more than three years. That makes me break into hot sweats to think about being stuck somewhere. A lot of people I know, they know what they want to do. Then there are the people, you know, who are going to wander for a while.

The best advice I've ever received is just go and do.
