Welcome to Roamfools!
Derrick & Jody are a young married couple who met under extraordinary circumstances during their time in the United States. In the midst of pursuing education & work, they aim to make it a point to go on road trips every weekend (because why not?) thus igniting their passion in the pursuit of adventures & the rest was history.
Why, such a peculiar name, you must wonder? They wish to always roam “fully”, to be inspired, remain inspired & stay inspired through their traveling endeavours. They’d like to think they are quite the spontaneous (& occasionally crazy) pair who will try anything in a heartbeat, thus the word “fools” is a brilliant depiction – Everyone needs a hearty belly whooping laugh once in awhile!
