Yo! We’re Alex and Sebastiaan.

A twenty-something couple from the United States and the Netherlands, we ditched our apartment and picked up our backpacks. Cultures call to us, maps lie to us, and we’ll go anywhere as long as there are friendly faces and unexplored places.

We travel through truly off-the-beaten-track countries and destinations, sharing our experiences along the way to encourage understanding and inspire you to do the same, no matter where you’re from.
