The need to travel – or how the travel bug bit us

There is a peaceful sensation, a sense of belonging to the world itself when you travel. Once you feel this, you never stop trying to feel it again. This is when you become addicted to travel! 

The travel bug bites you when you least expect it. It might be on an 8-hour ride on a public Filipino bus to El Nido; walking next to a Maasai on your way to the camp site; or even trying oysters for the first time in Dubrovnik.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. We didn’t even introduce our project to you guys!

Hello, our names are Tigs and Rosy and we are a couple from Portugal. Our first trip together was to Barcelona and since that day we haven’t stop travelling! We only have one certainty, we LOVE this World. We love it so much that we decided to share our stories with people, so that they too can feel the same way!

Our project – The Magnetic Souvenirs – started in 2015, and since then we became super-mega-pro travel photoblogg— ok, ok, let’s stop you right here.

In fact, we have no idea what we are doing! (Don’t we all?) We’re not professional photographers, we don’t have a major in journalism, nor do we know how to edit stuff like a pro. But you know what, that will not stop us from telling our stories, because we believe they are worth telling and that you guys deserve to be inspired by them! (And we’ll learn the technical stuff along the way)

We want to experience everything. Meet other cultures. Taste every food we find! Go to every festival we can! And also, bring some incredible souvenirs back home. Because this is how you get to know the World you live in, and where you fit in all of this incredible madness!

We have so many stories to tell you! Like the time we went out, just to get some fresh air, and ended up in a music video! Or the one time we spent a night camping surrounded by hyenas! Or even when we had to power through stomach flu on a day we had to ride a bus, a boat and an airplane!

On this blog we will tell you all about them! We will show you that travelling has its ups and downs, but in the end, it will all be worth it!

So fasten your seat belts and come experience the World with us, one story at a time!
See you all next Sunday! 😉
