About Me


New Zeealand!


We really ADORE people, who have positive energy and love inside. This is very important.

More than that, we think and talk a lot about what life is, how people should approach it, how to live better and in a more effective way and when we say it we mean being happier and learning how to appreciate what you have.

We are trying to meet more and more people who realize that the life is a moment which you are experiencing now.

We love art as itself and as a way of living. We are photographers,so we spend a lot of time taking photos and finding the ways of showing them to people (
We basically are traveling and at the same time selling our works just on the streets, to have some tips on beer, cheese and books. Most of the time it is very exciting and beneficial because of getting an increased chance of meeting good and creative people while we are showing our pictures.

We don’t wanna talk a talk about ourselves, because it ‘s a bit weird to describe oneself. Better one time see than five times listen. So, better meet us and we would be happy to get to know you and you would be hopefully happy to get to know us.

We are in love with Spanish and Catalan culture, Spanish language sounds like a song, and we want to learn it very much!!We are always happy when people talk to us in Spanish (we speak very bad, but understand everything (surprisingly!))


Realmente ADORAMOS a la gente, que tiene la energía positiva y el amor dentro. Esto es muy importante.

Más que esto, pensamos y hablamos mucho de cual la vida es, como la gente debería acercarse a ella, como vivir mejor y de un modo más eficaz y cuando lo decimos pensamos ser más felices y aprender a apreciar lo que usted tiene.
La naturaleza y el estilo de vida amistoso eco se hacen cada vez más importantes para nosotros, el mismo como la cuestión de acoso de animal. Pensamos hacernos seriamente complicados en la protección de animal.

Tratamos de encontrar cada vez más a la gente que realiza que la vida es un momento que usted experimenta ahora.

Amamos el arte como sí mismo y como un modo de vivir. Somos fotógrafos, entonces gastamos muchas fotos de toma de tiempo y descubrimiento de los modos de mostrarles a la gente (
Básicamente viajamos y al mismo tiempo vendemos nuestros trabajos sólo en las calles, para tener algunas puntas en la cerveza, queso y libros. La mayor parte del tiempo es muy emocionante y beneficioso debido a la adquisición de una posibilidad aumentada de encontrar a la gente buena y creativa mientras mostramos nuestros cuadros.

No queremos hablar una conversación de nosotros, porque esto ‘s un poco extraño para describirse. Mejor un tiempo ve que cinco veces escuchan. De este modo, mejor encuéntrenos y seríamos contentos de llegarle a conocer y usted sería con esperanza contento de llegarnos a conocer.
