Hello there, we’re Ivan and Jennifer.. We have been travelling for over 4 1/2 years off and on with our monkey Lil Dave.  We thought we weren’t going to travel much after our honeymoon.  But, we’ve got itchy feet… So, we’re doing Even MORE Monkeying Around the World. We’ll be headed to Europe and Northern Africa.  Hope you enjoy reading about our adventures.  Check out our RTW blogs here and here. The world’s a big place, so we’re going traveling even more.. before we actually start a family.


Jennifer has lived in Las Vegas for most of her life. She’s a short Filipino woman who enjoys anime, dancing to house music, wine, reading, the internet, cartoons, blogging, creating things like mailart and arts & crafts, taking lots of photos, chocolate chip cookies and music. She doesn’t take life too seriously. She loves to laugh and make jokes. She would love to become an anime voice actress someday.

Ivan is a man from Essex, England. He has many talents such as performing hypnosis, playing the piano and drums and doing magic tricks. He loves theatre, meeting new people, food, movies and music. Ivan is very spontaneous. He’s had tons of adventures backpacking around the world. He hopes to have his own hypnosis show in the future.

Lil Dave was born on May 10, 2000 as Dave Junior. He’s lived in California, Texas, England and Las Vegas. He is a very active monkey. His favorite food is bananas, of course! He loves making food, playing in the secret tree house with his friends in Vegas and monkey business with his buddy Mojo. He enjoys sampling all the different bananas around the world. Lil Dave would like to have his own restaurant one day where he makes signature banana dishes.  Lil Dave has taken on modeling now. Contact him on his Facebook page for bookings.  Oh, don’t forget to check him out at The Daily Dave which will probably be making a come back!
