Danielle and Greg first started dating in March 2009 while they were wrapping up their senior year at Gustavus Adolphus College. Their relationship started over dinner at Danielle's house where the couple swapped stories of their recent travels and their common love of public radio podcasts.

After graduating in June, they embarked upon the travel experience of a lifetime, a year teaching English in South Korea. Their passion for professional travel eventually brought them to Kaposvár, Hungary where they taught in public elementary and high schools. They decided it was time to come home to start graduate school in Washington, DC and start their lives stateside. After two years in DC they heard the Land of the Morning Calm calling them and headed back to Ilsan, South Korea, their one-time home, and during a walk around Lake Park, Greg asked Danielle to marry him.
