Bryan and Amanda Schlotterback are seasoned travelers who have stood at the foot of Mt. Everest, felt the misty waters of Skogafoss in Iceland, kissed the Blarney Stone, gazed over Paris atop the Eiffel Tower and maybe even sipped a Guinness or two in Dublin. They can’t imagine not living life, and this is a chance to hear their stories.

Bryan was born and raised in Knoxville, Iowa, and is a firefighter and EMT in Des Moines. He is a U.S. Navy Gulf War veteran and participates in Ironman competitions. Amanda was raised in Indianola and is the program manager for the Christian Opportunity Center. She has been a surrogate mother to six children.
