Origin of Bean of Cone
Our travel nicknames came about during a cold and windy camping and hiking trip to Patagonia in 2014 (it was 22 degrees fahrenheit during one of the nights we spent at a campsite!). We ended up wearing almost much everything we packed, including Deb's fleece, which made her look like a little bean head, and Carol's windproof jacket, which gave her a bit of a cone head.
Carol aka Cone
Carol, the yogic and meditative retoucher in her NYC life, enjoys snacks, funny dance moves, and exploring the beautiful parts of the world.
Deb aka Bean
Deb, a medical education/communication specialist in her NYC life, enjoys getting away from the hectic life of client calls, teleconferences, deadlines, and working every day for months on end.
Together, we plan on leaving behind the NYC rat race to travel the world for a year. You only have so much time in this life and you never know when you'll exit it. And at the rate that we're losing forests and species, by the time we hit retirement age, there probably won't be anything left to see other than cities, people, and garbage.
