{Guest Post} Spencer & Kylie

Hey Lovelies! Today is the first of a mini series of guest posts from some extra favorite blogging peoples!! Several months ago, I found this cool blog about three sisters {who are triplets, awesomely} who write about their traveling adventures on a budget. Awesome, right?!
Here is one of the adorable sisters and her husband to talk to you today. Lucky you. What I adore about this couple, is they are reaching out to people and getting to spend tons of time together while doing it. Perfect life, eh?!
Enjoy the sumptuous photos and their inspiring story. Then go to their blog. Follow their adventures. For reals, people. You will regret it if you don't.
xoxo.

Hola! We are Spencer & Kylie from the blog Spencer and Kylie . We met in college, got married and decided to travel the world. Apparently it doesn’t really stop, and we are always finding ways to see what we can seeeeeeee!

Currently, my husband and I live in Ecuador volunteering as humanitarian photographers and videographers as a husband/wife team for a non- profit organization called The Institute for Self-Reliant Agriculture! WE LOVE IT! Not only does it combine what we love to do (travel + serving) but it also allows us to spend every waking moment of every day together! We spent 2 months in Cusco, Peru and relocated here mid-summer. In the Fall, we will head to Northern Peru to serve in Piura prior to making our way back to America for the holidays. We have loved every single minute, and the memories we have made here are truly irreplaceable.
 

South America is a beautiful country. The people are kind, warm, and generous. We work primarily with families who live in rural communities in humble adobe or mud huts, with little or no electricity and running water. These families work hard to grow their own food and provide for themselves in such difficult circumstances. Their smiles radiate true happiness, and with a willingness to allow us into their homes and even their lives we are welcomed to visit with them and document their stories.

Our favorite part of working in South America is, of course, the children. We love los ninos and los perritos, and here we get the best of both worlds! Both are in abundant supply!


The beauty of working as a humanitarian photographer and videographer lies in the ability to create a visual of what life is like in a third world country. We are able to paint the picture that many people have not or cannot see – and in doing so, inspire others to help reach out to those who stand in need. People do not have to go to bed hungry and poverty does not have to plague nations, and YOU can do something about it. By supporting NGOs and non-profit organizations throughout the globe or participating in humanitarian efforts, each and every one of us is empowered to make a difference and improve the lives of others on opposite sides of the globe, and help to make this world a better place for everyone!
