Hi everyone!! We are Joan and Laura and we are from Catalonia and Mallorca. This is our very first post, hopefully the first one of many more to come. We think that the best way to start this travel blog is to introduce ourselves explaining how our journey started.
Laura and I met during our Physics undergraduate studies in the University of Barcelona back in 2014. Ever since we started dating, we fantasized about packing a few clothes and leaving everything we took for granted to start on a journey with a one way ticket. As many of you may have experienced, this is easier said than done. Many things must come together in order to start something like this: no attachments to one place, no job (unless you can work while traveling) and no relationships (unless your partner is awesome enough to come with you :P).
Once we both finished our studies and worked for a while to save some money, we decided that October 2018 would be a good moment to start this adventure. It just made sense to do it now. So we bought two one way tickets to Bangkok for October 22 and we’ll start from there. With the intention of sticking to a low budget we are going to travel as far as we can with the money we have.
About us: Joan likes climbing, makes jokes all the time,
bad ones most of them and is passionate about maths and physics. He is probably the most absent-minded person I’ve ever met and likes to just go with the flow. Laura on the other side likes to have a look at 30 different reviews before choosing a restaurant for dinner. She is funny, loves reading and cooking. We both share an interest for music and movies, cuisine, hiking and traveling.
Finally, since a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s two. This is us, 100% innocent, 0% traveling experience and plenty of memories yet to be made!
As we say in catalan: hasta lueg!
Joan & Laura
