Two people, in love, traveling the world. Sounds normal, right? Well, this couple has added a twist. Alex and Lisa are traveling the world, having quit their jobs and sold their house, getting married in various places around the world.

The couple has mapped out their wedding adventure on their blog, 2people1life. Here, family members, friends, co-workers and those interested in their story, can follow their movement and keep up with the couple by viewing their wedding maps-which show where they are, where they have been, and how long they plan to stay there-and by leaving comments for the couple to read.

People can even RSVP to their destination weddings if they are in the area by filling out a form on the couple's blog. The couple will then notify them anytime that they update their blog.

What's in it for you? By leaving comments on their blog, you have a chance at winning a cool prize. The couple will fly 2 people to their last wedding ceremony and put them up for the weekend. So the more times that you comment, the more chances you get at winning the prize.

This blog is not only a cute, original idea, but a win-win situation!
