Hello! We’re Natalie and Jackson, a New Yorker and a Kiwi, founders of A Pair of Travel Pants; a blog devoted to our love of hiking national parks, exploring major cities and experiencing different cultures. Inspired by National Geographic and our love of going off the beaten path we aim to explore ruins, food stalls and hikes through stories, photography and in-depth advice about where we’ve been.
