Hi! If you’re reading the site in English, please be patient… We first write it all in Portuguese and then translate it to English, this is the way we found to reach our non-Brazilian friends (you!). We try our best and we are happy you are here! 😀

I’m Cris, 34 y.o. now, Brazilian, from Curitiba, where I lived most of my life.
I met Felipe at uni, 16 years ago, and we’ve been together for nearly 13. We were business partners once, but nowadays our meetings are to decide our next destination, be it a country or a walk on Sunday.
About seven years ago I sold what I had in Brazil to start a new life, in a different country, speaking a different language, in an island 12,000 km away from home. Today I live in Wellington, capital of New Zealand.
We’ve always loved to travel and living so far from home has an advantage: there is a lot of world on the way. So before visiting Brazil, in the summer of 2008/2009, we decided to make a few stops and travel around the world for 6 months.
Besides these trips, we’ve also got many other shorter trips and stories to tell. Do you know when someone just can’t sit still? So… That’s why even when we take a little break somewhere we are already planning the next one.

Hi, my name is Felipe, 35, Brazilian from Curitiba. I’ve been living in Wellington, New Zealand for 7 and a half years. Cris is my partner, friend and the person who gives sense to my life, we got married in early 2009 in the middle of the round the world trip.
I’m an interactive designer, I used to own an internet agency back in Brazil, but since I moved to New Zealand I’m enjoying this employee’s cruising life.
I like to travel, meet different people and different cultures, I enjoy surfing when there are some decent waves, and often I go snorkelling, snowboarding and other activities close to the nature. I’m not the materialist kind of person. Sometimes I’m a bit irresponsible taking care of my friendships and family relations, often I spend lot of time without sending a single email, but I love all of them.
