About Us Life Beyond 520


About Life Beyond 520

Our names are Edith and Juan, teacher and foreman and part time adventurers at the moment.  We started this blog mainly because we have big dreams to see the world and have some upcoming plans to reach this goal.  While doing so, we hope to document our travels and share them with you.

We moved from Tucson, Arizona to Southern California in 2014.  Since then, we’ve been exploring every corner of the So-Cal and making occasional road trips around the state.  Living in a state with so much to do spiked our sense of wanderlust even more, leading to the decision to travel this state as much as we can with occasional longer trips when our jobs allow it.

Through this blog, you can follow along as we share places to see in California, Arizona, nearby states, and occasional out of the country trips.

The Name: Life Beyond 520:

As we were brainstorming names, we wanted people to know where we come from because we are super humbled and proud to be from the 520 area- Tucson, Arizona.  That’s when we realized, the pictures we share on Instagram are the stories we are living beyond our home.  That this, is our life beyond Tucson.   Our life beyond the 520.  Thanks Mr. 305 for the name inspiration haha!

About Edith:

I’m a 2nd grade teacher who loves the outdoors, exploring places, dancing,  photography, family time, and God.  A girl who likes reading, the online world, writing, listening to music and who basically can’t be home.  I dislike bugs, cooking, and staying home.  My dream place to visit is………can’t decide.  Too many because I want to see the whole world.

About Juan:

I’m a foreman who loves my job.  I love food, eating snacks, loud music, watching movies, and to occasionally drive around the city.  I enjoy going to food markets and walking.  I like rivers, oceans, and lake views.  I dislike heights and amusement park rides.  My dream place to visit is Africa, specifically for a Safari adventure.
