Hi there! We’re Sam & Toccara, creators of Forget Someday. Thanks for taking the time to stop by our site!
Our story goes all the way back to when we met in pre-school at the age of 3. (See if you can identify us in our class photo below.)
Pretty cute, right?! In short, we met in pre-school, had crushes on each other through various phases of our lives, finally dated late in our 20’s, and made it official on New Year’s Eve 2010.
We both have a passion for travel, adventure, and exploring new places and cultures! We’ve already crossed a ton of items off of our ever-growing Bucket List and look forward to making more of our travel dreams come true! With Toccara’s planning and photography skills and Sam’s filming, editing, and technical web skills, we’ve put together this website to inspire you to get out and explore this beautiful world we live in!
Our Travel Style
To put it simply, we enjoy small town experiences and outdoor adventures. Though we’ve visited a few big cities (Paris, London, Athens, etc.), we much prefer getting out of the city and escaping the crowds. We prefer to travel slowly and to take it all in. Our favorite journeys usually end up being road trips through the countryside, casual hiking through splendid landscapes, and exploring charming small towns.
You typically won’t find us in a museum, but rather outdoors exploring a city or the surrounding area by foot. Though you are likely to find us perusing the stalls of an open-air market sampling the local flavors or tasting beer or wine at the local brewery/winery.
We are always up for an adventure, however we don’t consider ourselves adrenaline junkies! Can’t say we’ve ever had the desire to go bungee jumping, downhill skiing, or repelling down into a cave, but we have been snowmobiling, on a helicopter tour, extreme hummer and TomCar tours, and hot air balloon rides, to name a few!

Facebook also brings traffic to our site, though we have found that it’s beneficial to put most of our energy into the social media outlets that are really working for us, while not completely ignoring all other avenues of outreach!
