We’re Josh and Liz. Travel is a major part of our lives. Having traveled to over 40+ countries and nearly every state in the US, we know how to plan a great trip.  Over the years, everyone was asking us for advice for planning their vacations, and even for copies of our itineraries! 

So back in 2013 we started this website, Peanuts or Pretzels, to share all our travel goodness with those who want to plan their own memorable travel adventures too. We believe life is all about the memories you make and the adventures you take.
