Caution: Extreme Sarcasm Used
Aggie and Jacob are known to their followers as @aggie and @jacob, two very unique and creative usernames, on a little social platform called Instagram. They’ve been the OGs of the travel social media space since 2015.
Aggie and Jacob met in Thailand in 2017 (no, not a full moon party while backpacking, as every respected travel couple should), but disappointingly enough while shooting a five star hotel. A few relationships and many 5 star but mostly 1 star hotels later in 2020, they FINALLY listened to that little nudge in their heart that said ‘this person is just something else!’. Maybe it was a pandemic that made them realize that they have so much in common but who knows, does it really matter anyway?
Their joint goal is to spend as little time on Instagram as possible, so they have more time to focus on doing bad ass things like throwing themselves out of airplanes (aka. skydiving) and having deep conversations with people they care about.
Now, not to promote enmeshment but rather support individuality in a romantic relationship, let’s talk about ‘Jaggie’ and their ventures separately...
When not traveling (pun intended), Aggie works on her empire (aka she can't pick just one thing to focus on). Her clothing brand, Aggie Clo offers swimwear and activewear made from recycled fishing nets; she has also sold tens of thousands of people her unique editing presets.
Back at the beginning of 2020 she launched her travel book in Target called ‘Insta-Travel’ — ironically this was a month before the world stopped traveling, but let's not blame a global pandemic for its mediocre success.
Beyond this she’s hosted her very own TEDx talk in Mexico, drinks bulletproof coffee daily and is a mum to the cutest cockapoo named Peanut Butter.
Jacob spent 7 years nailing being vastly underpaid for his photography work (as most photographers are!) until he discover the NFT and crypto space a few months ago 😉💵.
It wasn’t long before he became the highest earning landscape photographer on superrare.co — which you could say was somewhat helpful in making this game happen.
Jacob’s other ventures include Creator Circuit, an online teaching platform for budding creators and influencers, his clothing brand Dreamland launcing in Summer 2021, and leading creative campaigns for some seriously big name brands, think Lamborghini.
HOW WE CREATED
WHEN THE GAME
Between then and the point you’re reading on this page, they asked more friends than they can possibly recall to test the game. They tested it with friends in LA, New York, Dubai, Poland, Hawaii and the UK. They tested it over zoom, in person, in the car, at restaurants, with their high-maintenance friends and their easy-going friends.
The outcome was always the same, people learned more about each other (in a good way, not in a creepy stalker way), and they all left feeling connected, uplifted and inspired to travel more. Maybe a few of them whispered that it was the best travel game they’ve every played but that’s something you’ll have to decide for yourself.
Anyway, as weird as that was to talk about ourselves in the third person, we hope enjoyed our little story time and that you will equally enjoy the game too!
Your friendly neighbourhood influencers,
Aggie & Jacob
