| ABOUT STORM | 26 | ♂  

Storm Portrait
Storm is a South African student & activist, born and raised in the Mother City Cape Town. He spread his wings after his matric and went overseas to work. His travels have led him to the U.S., all parts of Europe and eventually Eastern-Europe, where worked and lived in Moscow for several years. This year his travels have led him to Hanoi, Vietnam where he lived half a year. In his spare time he enjoys playing football, golf & guitar (or any instrument really) as well as hiking or cooking new exotic vegetarian & healthy  meals. His dream is to continue traveling the world, do his bit for humanity, build a career and do it all of it with his wife by his side. Storm loves to film their adventures with the GoPro!

My credo: “Work hard and stay humble” 




| ABOUT JESS | 26| ♀

Jessica’s roots are both Dutch & German! The last years she spent traveling back and forth between Moscow, Munich, Berlin & Cape Town. The latter is where she met her husband. When she doesn’t have her head in the books, she is always somewhere snapping away. Jess loves all things creative, spending most of her spare time in the outdoors with her camera. Jess describes herself as a passionate foodie that cannot resist but to indulge in different cuisines. As a jack-of-all-trades, she is easily enthused, eager to learn and aspires greatness in everything she does. To her, however, family as well as being able to travel are the greatest & most humbling gifts.

My credo: “Success is not the key to happiness but happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing you will be successful” 








With the hemispheres that we come from combined, for us it is twelve months of summerrepresenting a mind-set that can be compared with the state of perpetual summer. On this blog we talk about everything we encounter in our lives as activists, students, nomads and most of all – husband and wife! We hope to be able to inspire you, may it be in adopting a greener lifestyle or traveling to places we wrote about! Watch us ticking of our bucket list whilst volunteering all over the world. Follow us on our crazy journey  and let’s see where wanderlust takes the two of us! Thanks for stopping by.
