We’re Nick and Tessa. We lived in the same city in the south of the Netherlands for eighteen years without ever meeting each other. After moving away to study, we somehow met at a music festival in Belgium in 2008. Soon we started backpacking across Europe and got infected with the travel fever. The past years we’ve used up all our vacation days and overtime taking three- to four-week trips to countries in South East Asia, Africa, the Caucasus and South America. Every time we felt we started to get used to being on the road, we already had to leave. That’s how we decided to travel further and longer than the usual couple of weeks.
