Our story

Hello everyone!

Welcome and thanks for taking the time to read this page and look around our website.

We are: Javi and Chiara, 31 and 29, Spanish and Italian.

Since we met in Edinburgh 4 years ago, we decided to travel to see a bit of the world and step outside of our comfort zone. Trust us when we said we did just that!

Those who have done the same will probably understand what we mean.

We experienced fear, doubts and a bit of panic but the adrenaline, satisfaction and real joy was worth it!

We had the opportunity to travel to Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and a few other countries.

This opportunity gave us the chance to meet incredible people, get to know other cultures and learn that the world is much bigger than the daily reality we were used to.

Since we moved to Italy in 2013 Javi got a job as product manager and bike designer. I had few different jobs, which is quite common nowadays, especially when you study Sustainable Tourism.

We were faced with a choice – take on indeterminate term contracts, or pursue our crazy idea: to open a small business where our creativity could flow without restrictions and we could direct all our energy and passion into our personal dreams…and so, here we are!
