We are Dany and Al and we write from Italy.

I (Dany) have lived in Italy since when I was a little girl however I have always felt like a citizen of the world. My parents have always loved travelling and thus they brought me, my little sister and our adventurous cat, off to beautiful destinations. I was taught that engaging the world and connecting with new people is the best way to learn new things.
I now travel the world with my husband Aldo. He’s the one shooting our videos and many of the beautiful pictures you see on our blog. We have been together for most of our life and just like me, he loves to learn new things through our trips.

In Italy we say “Chi si ferma è perduto” (“He who hesitates is lost”, more or less), so hop on and let’s explore the world!
