Hi, we are Maya and Michal, the smiling faces behind this blog, traveling slowly and endlessly exploring the world.
We love outdoor activities and can’t sit still, always moving, always planning next adventure and expanding our comfort zone. You can probably find us in the nature hiking, biking, running or just wandering around.
Someone once called us addicts to adrenaline. The expression that describes us literally. We love the excitement which comes with adventures. Whether it’s before jumping off the cliff, biking new trail or visiting a new place.
We’ve met 10 years ago and since then spent summer in Scotland, United States, traveled around Europe and our home country, Slovakia. After finishing our studies in economics in 2012 (Michal in 2011) we landed great jobs and had awesome colleagues. But living in our capital for many years, we realized it is not the right place for us.
We used to ask ourselves, how is it not only travel somewhere else, but truly immerse in the culture? So we decided to move to Canada, the land of beautiful mountains and lakes.
When we told our friends we are moving to Canada, we often heard, “I wish I can go, too.” Well..why don’t you? If we can go, you can go, too…Everybody had excuses but we put any fears we had behind and left. After 3 years we definitely don’t regret our decision.
WHY DID WE LEAVE?
Simply because we want to see the world, meet interesting people, learn new things and grow as people. Everyone we’ve met has a different story, background and reasons for their adventures. And there is something we always agree on: Travel makes people better people. When you are constantly learning about the world and people you meet, you are expanding your mind, pushing your limits when trying new things and become easy going and open minded person.
If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try. – Seth Godin
Go through the adventures of life with the smile on your face.
Hopefully we will inspire you to live adventurously, expand your comfort zone, show you new places and left you thinking with a smile on your face already planning your next adventure. Doesn’t matter if it’s something crazy or not, just get out there, discover a new place or activity that will make you feel happy and speechless.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you here again!
Maya & Michal
