We met in Minneapolis in 2012 right after we both graduated from the University of Minnesota, and so began a whirlwind love affair. One complete with Zach standing outside Julie’s window blasting a boombox and Julie swooning over love letters written to Zach in perfect pen.

Of course, in reality our courtship was full of football tailgates, raucous cabin weekends, and of lots of travel! We would love to share our experiences, advice, and stories with you. That’s why we created Ruhls of the Road!

We Created a Facebook Travel Community

We launched the Ruhls of the Road Travel Community to be able to talk advice, tips, suggestions and all things travel! The intention is for every member to be able to share their stories and advice on different places around the world! Click below to be taken to the page!

Zach: Hike the trail to Machu Picchu! Hiking the Inca Trail – talking the long trail, that takes upwards of a week – sounds like a mind-blowing experience. Hiking through Peruvian mountains and clouds, camping on the side of the trail, learning the culture and history that belongs to the trail, it all sounds overwhelmingly amazing!

Julie: Seeing the Northern Lights at the fjords of Norway. The Northern Lights are more of a visual experience than a destination, and we have never experienced them! From what we’ve heard, Norway has the clearest, brightest, most beautiful view, especially when framed by the famous fjords.
