About Me

We are a Brazilian- Spanish middle aged married couple, originally living in Recife, Brazil. And now, travelling the world. We like art, reading, writing, travelling and sports.

We also enjoy getting to know people and collecting interesting stories about lives and places. Sustainability is an important value for us.

We had lived and worked in different countries and love meeting new cultures and making new friends!

We maintain a blog (, where we keep our friends and followers updated with our discoveries during our experience travelling the world, that we started in December 2104. You can see also our Facebook page:

At the beginning of 2017 we published our first e-book in Spanish and Portuguese with 80 tips for long-term trips and other resources. Is free for donwload here:

We are looking to volunteer and experience activities that bring us the possibility of helping people.
