Divergent Travelers -Lina & David Stock

Who Are We?

We are David & Lina Stock, a married couple from NW Wisconsin who have been traveling together since 2001. In 2013 we uprooted our lives, sold everything we owned and set off to travel full time in February 2014. To date we’ve visited nearly 100 countries on 7 continents.

You can learn more about us here.
