Our expectations of an ancient city with cobbled street, crumbling monuments, elaborate fountains and crazy vespa-filled traffic circles would soon come to pass.

Derek and Ondine are an adventurous, outdoorsy (and sometimes indoorsy) long-term couple that enjoys exploring the unknown. They have grown up and lived in Cape Town but felt the need to experience different cultures together. They have travelled internationally previously, however, they want to immerse themselves in the day-to-day lifestyle of another world, so to speak.
They are currently travelling through Europe starting in Italy and working their way through France, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, UK and the Eastern countries.
