WHO ARE WE?
Welcome! Bienvenidos! Willkommen! Croeso! Benvenuto! Laukiamas!
If they are here it is because they want to know something about us, but this blog is not to tell you our story or how much we love to travel (which is clearly our favorite activity, hence having a web page of the topic!).
By way of introduction, we are two Chileans living normal lives. We both have jobs (one in an established company and the other undertaking) and therefore we have not given up our 9-5 jobs like many other bloggers. We were able to travel the world thanks to the savings of a lifetime, taking 14 months of vacation to travel through 38 countries and 108 cities on 4 continents during 2015 and 2016.
From that trip, our interest arises to build this web page. Our goal at that time was not to live on travel but to know the world and its charms. We wanted to be backpackers at some times and tourists at others. We read how much travel blog we found to decide our destinations and find out things as simple as how to move from one place to another or which areas are better to sleep in a city, but we realized that most are focused on telling the story and experience of who writes them, and not in telling the history and reality of cities and countries. We find that the big pages today charge to recommend hotels and restaurants, even tours, so we could not trust 100% of them anymore. We also saw many times with photos of wonderful places that seemed out of a dream, to make the effort to get to them and realize that the photos can lie a little, and to get these at 6 am (which is when photographers professionals go out to do their job) plus a bit of Photoshop do wonders …
We created this web page to speak from the cities, from what we saw, but not from what we liked or did not like. We leave that decision to you!
Here you will find information about the cities and countries that we have known over time, and we hope in the future you can tell us about others you may have known to complement the page and create a community where we can all help each other. The photos that you will find here show the reality, without filters or Photoshop …
Our greatest wish is that one day people from all over the world can enter here and make informed decisions regarding the places they want to meet. With useful content easily summarized, that can also be reviewed and complemented by the experiences of all of you … Dreaming is free! But to make dreams come true, you have to give them a try!
