About Us

Thank you for visiting Married with Miles!

We are Alina and David Backer, a young adventure-loving couple.

We fell in love at the University of Florida in 2011 and tied the knot in 2016. We live in sunny South Florida with two guard dogs. When we’re not traveling we enjoy passing the time with family and friends or a good Netflix night in with our pets.

We created this blog to share our travel adventures but mostly inspire others by our travel hacking techniques. We love traveling, but we also love helping others!
