Meet the Traveling Couple
“We are two young students traveling around the world. Besides the studying, we try to travel often. This is our passion. We are a couple (almost together for 3 years) from Belgium. Sometimes people ask us how we can travel while we are studying. We aren’t rich, we are just two young normal students. We just work hard to travel, and sometimes we do collaborations with hotels. It all looks fun and stuff, but actually we put a lot of effort in it! We also live with our families in the country side of Antwerp. We love our families but we are not the type of students that: ‘get everything they want’. We work hard to make this happen and are happy to see where we stand now.”
“Go as far as you can, as long as you can, as much as you can”
Couples Friendly Destination?
VENICE! Totally. It is so cozy and romantic. We definitely want to go there again, just for the ‘Venice feeling’. Paris is also very romantic and beautiful. But we just felt better in Venice. It’s the atmosphere. Venice just has it.
How’s traveling as a couple?
“It’s the atmosphere. Venice just has it!“
Favorite secret spot in your homeland?
Your best day ever?
In Thailand, Koh Phangan. We did not expect much when we hired a motorcycle for a day. But while driving around we saw the most beautiful views ever! Far away from the touristic sights, only nature and the sea. Amazing! We discovered some hidden temples, great viewpoints and met some local people. It was totally unexpected but we are still talking about this day.
