We are a couple from Germany. we took off for a year to travel around the world, because we like to get to know other cultures, meet nice people and try good food. Before that, we happened to work as an engineer and a consultant, so the schedule was always full of business and we are really happy that we could realize that trip to enjoy everything, there was no time for before.
We use to walk a lot to explore cities and places and enjoy one or two stop at a cafe, maybe for reading, maybe just for relaxing a bit.
Now, our sabbatical is over, but we still enjoy travelling around and hope to get around as much as possible ;) and learn new things.
