43BlueDoors tells stories of travel through the eyes of Trin and Bonnie, a nomadic couple.  Its purpose is to bring the beauty of the world to your doorstep and help you live life outside the box by experiencing other cultures through stories.

We are budget backpackers and tell stories about the places we visit.  We provide some travel tips like how we spent less than $5,000 each for our first year of travel.

The articles have links to products that we use and love. 43BlueDoors earns a commission on anything purchased from our product links, and 100% of the net proceeds are donated to the Dunamis Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping young girls rescued from human trafficking find freedom and new opportunities in this beautiful world.

We are honored to have you as our reader and follower. We hope that you enjoy our stories as much as we enjoy living and telling them, and more importantly, that you’ll open our own blue doors to the adventures that await you.

We cherish our freedom and want to share a bit of that with others who have had it stolen from them.

During our travel through Ecuador, we had the privilege of working with the Dunamis Foundation. Dunamis is dedicated to helping young girls rescued from human trafficking. They provide classes to help the girls learn new life skills while providing them a safe place to live until they are of age and ready for independence.

Boris, the founder and visionary of Dunamis, had a rough start himself.  Read below about his near capture by the Colombian guerrillas and his life on the streets as a young child.

Clicking on any product links on this blog and purchasing something in that session will provide a small percentage commission to 43BlueDoors.  All net proceeds go to the Dunamis Foundation.

Live life outside the box and find your door of opportunity!
