The origin story
We met while we were both studying at Kingston University London. Since that year in London, we have been exploring each other’s countries and are planning to discover new countries as well. In our blog articles we combine the visitor’s and local’s point of view.
About the blog
We decided to start a blog to share our favourite hidden spots in each other’s countries, as well as the different points of view you have about these when you grew up knowing that place vs. when you are seeing it from the tourist perspective.
As we started exploring these places, we discovered how integral culture is to how you experience them. Therefore, we focus on the cultural aspects like traditions, language and all those other things that make up a culture. Of course you can also expect a multitude of articles about the Bajan cuisine and Austrian desserts, as well as other fun stuff.
