City you live in: We don’t have a home base as we travel full time.
Most recent city visited… We just went to Cancun before we travelled further south to Tulum where we’ll spend the next 2 weeks.
A typical day in my life includes… While traveling one day is like another, we try to stick to a certain routine. While on the road, we usually wake up before sunrise to take some pictures, head back to our accommodation and get some work done (editing, answering emails, etc.), workout around noon (at a gym if available), eat something, and usually finish with office work.
I was born… Fuessen, a small town in the south of Germany (Vivian) and Hamburg, Germany (Johannes).
When I was younger, I wanted to be… Vivian wanted to be an astronaut and Johannes wanted to be a plastic surgeon.
My first job was… Vivian and Johannes both worked as waiters in a restaurant.
My favorite thing about traveling is… discovering new places, meeting new people, and being enchanted by our beautiful planet every day anew.
I’m currently listening to… a very long Salsa playlist because we’re taking classes at the moment and need to get a feel for it ;).
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… probably all of our friends at family at one big table as those are the people we miss the most while traveling full time.
One thing I cannot travel without… our camera backpack for sure!
I’m inspired by… our planet and all of the insanely beautiful places out there!
The one person who motivates me is… We kind of constantly motivate each other which makes us a pretty good team.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… climate change!
The perfect day would be… spent with people we love, being outdoors, and a bright and sunny day!
My favorite place I’ve visited… This is impossible to answer as we’ve been to soooo many stunning places which are all so different, but New Zealand is definitely one of our favorites.
My top 3 bucket list destinations… French Polynesia or Bora Bora most of all, Lapland to sleep in a glass igloo and watch the northern lights, and probably Hawaii.
My life… is just perfect the way it is!
I’m currently working on… getting back in shape and sticking to a healthy nutrition.
Always… follow your dreams!
Never… do anything just because you’re expected to!
Favorite quote… “I’d rather have a passport full of stamps than a house full of stuff!”
Biggest dream… to always be happy and to live a life we love.
My pet peeve(s)… people who are always too late! Might be a pretty German thing though :D
