World Tour - Asia / Oceania / South America / Central Amercia
We are a friendly couple who plan to do a world tour during one year : about 18 country in all!
We met each other during high school and are together since 9 years... we plan to celebrate 10 years of couple in Easter Island!
After healing of Alex's Leukemia, we would like to enjoy life! It was our dream before Alex's disease... now we can do it!
The world tour is the opportunity for both to discover the lives of the local population. Indeed we want to be close to people in order to learn about customs, languages, gastronomy and so on! So this experience is a great human experience that allow us to share, exchange and live moment together!
