Maps are like love letters. They enable boldness, and they break down barriers to the impossible. This episode of the Out and Back Podcast is a love letter written directly onto a map. In fact, a map played an integral role in putting a ring on a couple's relationship.

Show Notes

The landscape always played a crucial role in forging Phoebe Novitsky's and Ian Silberman's connection. From taking a wrong turn on Colorado’s Grizzly Peak to bonking on an epic gravel ride, Ian and Phoebe quickly got to know each other through their trials and triumphs outside. And they developed an unbreakable bond in the process. Ian knew he wanted to incorporate geography into his proposal to Phoebe, and he ended up taking it to the next level. Tune in to the episode to hear all about his ingenious plan.

You may want to grab a box of tissues, too, as you sink into this heartwarming story of how maps (and in particular, Gaia GPS) helped Phoebe and Ian take a trip through time and space to put a ring on their relationship.
