We travel to get to know the world around us, but ourselves too.

We want to prove that the world and its people are not scary at all. That’s why we invest all our money into traveling. That’s why we boldly talk to foreigners without speaking the language, ask awkward questions, and let strangers lead us. Our mission is to show that there are countless ways to travel, as well as unlimited opportunities to hit the road. And that all the people on this planet are good beings capable of making our journeys more interesting, more beautiful and more authentic.


The magic of traveling: Follow the locals
Our first book introduces impressive people from all over the world to you. It will transport you to (un)usual places seen through the prism of locals’ life. It will show you their adventure and put you in some comic and enlightening situations. Let’s travel together via the inspiring stories of the people we followed!
