Mélissa and David firmly believe that we are blessed to live in a time when it’s possible to experience all the best the world has to offer in terms of scenery, history and culture. Inspired by a love of making new discoveries, they are both seasoned backpackers who have journeyed around many different countries. Besides their shared passion for travel, they have similar backgrounds and interests, which eventually led to their paths crossing. Having both studied film at university, they have directed a number of short features which have appeared at various festivals. They also have experience in the fields of communications, advertising, education, event planning, photography, video, multimedia and audiovisual production. Today, they run their own company that provides corporate and event photography (Mélissa) and video (David). Sweathearts, friends, roommates, colleagues, partners, co-directors and travel companions, they also launched an initiative to raise money for the Cancer Research Society by climbing a mountain in Norway together. They’re delighted to be able to share their travel stories with you!
