Hello, welcome to our blog!
In Between Lattes is a travel blog where we document our adventures around the world. With beautiful photography and practical information & tips, we aim to inspire my readers to travel more and discover new destinations.
Our travel style is all about local experiences, cultural curiosity and finding unique things to do.
My passion for travel started at a young age. Born in Buenos Aires (Argentina), I went on my first overseas trip by myself at the age of 15. I did a homestay in Japan for one month living with local families.
During that trip I fell in love with the Japanese people, nature, food… and from then on I knew I wanted to move and live there.
Fast forward to high-school graduation, I was incredibly lucky to be granted a scholarship that allowed me to go back to Japan on a 5-year undergrad program. Those years were the most challenging yet most exciting & formative for me. I became fluent in Japanese, met students from all over the world and started to explore Asia.
I was born in Baku (Azerbaijan) and was lucky enough to have a grandad who traveled all around the globe and showered me with gifts from his travels. I had tiny shoes from Japan, a wooden toy from Burkina Faso and clothes from England. From then onwards, my life dream was to travel the world.
After moving to the UK and graduating from university I was able to afford to travel on my own. Very quickly, I fell in love with Asia. Soon enough I was living in Singapore where I met Maria and our story began!
We both have a serious case of wanderlust and love to go on adventures as much as we can. Some of our most memorable experiences are sleeping in yurts in Mongolia, hiking the red sand dunes in Namibia and walking on glaciers in Patagonia.
2018: Our sabbatical year
After living in Hong Kong for 3 years, we quit our jobs and decided to travel full-time. We spent the first half of the year in California followed by a 5-month backpacking trip to South America. Some of the places we visited are Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Panama and Chile.
