We’re Liz & Dennis, the faces behind Eat See RV. We’re honored you want to get to know us better. Here’s a little of our backstory.
In March of 2017, after lots of planning and preparing, we sold most of our belongings and moved into a 2017 Grand Design Momentum 328M Fifth Wheel Toy Hauler with our two cats, Pilar and Oliver.
We spent a year and a half traveling in the fifth wheel before we realized less is more.
In 2019, we sold even more of our belongings and bought a new to us Class C RV (Maggie) that we painstakingly renovated over 6 months. In 2023, we once again downsized buying a 2019 Coachmen Freelander Class C RV (named Dita) that we currently live and travel in.
Over the last five years, we’ve traveled to Mexico, Iceland, Canada, Panama, and Spain. And we’re just getting started. Our travel blog and Youtube channel shares helpful travel guides and amazing destinations from around the world to inspire you to eat, see, and travel more sustainably and responsibly.

Shortly after meeting and starting our careers in Orlando, FL, talk of grand ideas to travel the world left us itching for freedom and exploration.
Loving exotic foods, cultures, and lands, we knew we wanted to travel extensively in other countries. However, the more we talked about our plans the worse we felt about going overseas before exploring our own country.
So we decided to RV the United States before heading abroad. Unfortunately, our jobs as a bartender and a teacher did not allow us to work remotely.
Even though we knew nothing about real estate or investing we started our company, Seasoned Funding in 2013 and hit the ground running. There were lots of ups and downs of taking on a “side hustle”, not to mention the challenge of learning how to invest in real estate, but we knew the end result would be worth it.
Four and a half years later, in June 2017, we quit our jobs to take on our real estate business full-time and hit the road. Since hitting the road in 2017 how we earn money has changed immensely. We’ve wound down most of our real estate portfolio and we’re working toward becoming full-time content creators. We earn income in a variety of ways from blogging, vlogging, and working with brands we trust and believe in.

Here’s a little more about each of us individually:
Liz first got the travel bug when she visited a friend in Buenos Aires, Argentina in college for spring break in 2008. Just three weeks after returning from the trip, she applied for a teaching abroad program and moved to Spain for 4 months to teach English.
She’s now traveled to four different continents. Liz loves to cook and eat a (mostly) healthy diet. She is a self-development and podcast addict who enjoys reading, gardening, and being with friends and family.
Dennis was a bartender for over ten years in Orlando, FL. He hadn’t traveled much prior to meeting Liz, but he quickly fell in love with traveling and was on board for full-time exploration.
He is an amazing artist with a knack for seeing things differently. He loves to capture nature and the world around him with his camera.
He’s the man behind all of the amazing photos and videos you see on the site. Dennis enjoys swimming in cold fresh water (especially in Florida springs), being outdoors, riding two-wheeled vehicles, being creative, and eating new foods.
Pilar and Oliver are our two adorable cats. Both adopted from the SPCA and (mostly) love living the RV lifestyle. We never thought we were “cat people” until we got them. Now, we’re bonafide cat lovers.
Oliver is the friendly and cuddly companion we adopted just one year later. He acts more like a dog than a cat (he even plays fetch). He loves exploring and spending time outside.
Pilar is a “Hemingway” cat, meaning she has extra toes. This trait is often found in cats on the Hemingway property. We named her accordingly, after the scandalous gypsy character Pilar in For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway.
