The 'good' and 'bad' uncomfortableness of travel with Cydny and Marc Voicechovski.

Cydny and Marc are travellers at heart and so passionate about sharing stories of travel. They are now moving to Vietnam to experience living in a new country.

About Cydny and Marc

Cydny and Marc Voicechovski (voice-chov-ski) a.k.a, The V’s, call themselves "Adventure Motivators" with GOAL Traveler. They blog, vlog, and podcast regularly inspiring their followers to join the movement to Get Out And Live.  They consider themselves an ordinary couple with an extraordinary desire to travel and a passion to inspire you to do the same!

They may be seen hiking volcanoes or touring a country via campervan, but often end their treks splurging on 5-star views and 10-course tasting menus.  Why? Because they want to experience all aspects of what a location has to offer. They currently are about to embark on an upended journey that has them moving from New Jersey to Hanoi, Vietnam.

I can do this, reminding myself that I have the power to do this, I’m much stronger than I think I am, and I am much more confident than I think I am.
