Max was asked to download a dating app so a friend could get "points". Ashley downloaded the same dating app because a friend recommended it to her. They both matched each other and eventually met for a first date in New York City. A few months later and they were on their way to Peru. They both had a feeling that they were right for each other after Max took care of Ashley when she got sick on a 70km trek through the Salkantay Range. Since then they have been living in the Big Apple while also traveling around the world on their time off. When they aren't off hiking a mountain they like to keep it cozy, cook a meal and binge their latest series obsession.
