About

We’re Helen Anne Travis and Greg Gall. In 2003, we started dating. The next year, we started traveling. We are so grateful to have found what we love in life: seeing the world together.

Why We Travel

We travel for the sheer joy of seeing the world. Nothing makes us feel more awake and alive than navigating a new city, trying new foods, and experiencing cultures vastly different than our own. For us, travel is not only a way to see the world, but also a way to celebrate it.

Why We Blog

We’ve met some incredible people, heard some fascinating stories, and tried some really amazing foods during our travels. We want to share our adventures with you. We hope this blog inspires you to see the world, and we hope our stories help you plan richer, more authentic experiences.

What We Write

We write about what we love: delicious food, fascinating histories, interesting people, and beer, lots of beer. When we travel, we try to understand the stories behind the sites. On From Way Up High you’ll find city guides and recommended itineraries, as well as in-depth articles about a destination’s history, culture and food traditions.

Where We Call Home

When we’re not traveling you’ll find us in Tampa, FL. We live with two fat cats in a century-old church in one of the city’s most historic districts. Tampa has a fascinating history and an amazing craft beer scene, which we write about here »

How We Pay The Bills

Helen Anne is a travel writer and internet marketing consultant. Greg is a web designer and business analyst. We’re friendly and do good work; let’s partner on a project »
