Inspired by the name of a favorite public broadcasting reporter, Fodenvensel Studios is the travel blog of Austin and David, a couple from Portland, Oregon who left their social work-ish jobs in the name of longterm international travel and the quest for good coffee and foreign snacks. Both ever seeking greater personal development and learning of all kinds, they search out meaningful work and personal interactions by volunteering and housesitting wherever they go. This also makes their travels more affordable.
The writing herein is a collaborative effort of Austin and David while the photography and videography are the product of David’s skillful eye alone. Austin is usually responsible for cleaning, baking and finding the cheapest airfare while David prefers cooking, selecting the perfect music for any given moment, drinking coffee and has a talent for finding great accommodation within their budget.
