The Gillette's...Who Are We?
While sitting on the beach in Turkey in 2005 after spending 7 months traveling around the world together, Audrey and Bryan decided that, when they had kids, they would travel around the world again. In June 2017, they took off for one year to realize this dream. The kids have heard about this trip from the moment they were born and experienced international travel for the first time in Nicaragua when they were ages 6 & 8.

Audrey, Bryan, Colin, & Decker live in Pleasanton, California about one hour east of San Francisco.
