We both have our University degrees, we both had great jobs in Switzerland. We decided to quit our employments to travel the world. During our travels we wrote, tought, proofread, motivated, trained, improved and consulted. Now we decided that we love what we do, but we love our friends a little bit more. So we moved back to Switzerland, we settled down, found fantastic jobs, got married, have two kids and soon a house. It's so cheesy we barely belief it ourselves.
Before travelling the world, it was very important for us to get a solid basic education and some work experience, so that we could go back home and continue our life if we ever feel like. We were lucky to save some money while gathering our work experience. As most of you know, travelling isn't for free. While life is significantly cheaper in big parts of our world than in Western Europe, we still spent money on accommodation, food, activities (hiking, diving, entrance fees, etc.) and last but definitely not least, on transportation. This was the life we chose and we were happy with it.
