[Total: 18    Average: 4.7/5]

Let’s travel the world! Do you think perfect life is only for the perfect people? We thought that too for a long time. We were looking on smiling faces on the cover of the magazines and thought that we could never be like them. We are so imperfect.

When we first met we were both overweight, poor and very insecure. We didn’t believe in ourselves. Of course we had big dreams but also absolutely no strength to fulfil them.

We felt in love and decided to have fun in our life!

We realised how fragile and short life is. And that we have limited time on this Earth. And that we will never be perfect. And that we should STOP hating ourselves and start loving everything about us unconditionally.

We don’t look or behave like a stereotypical travellers. We are plump, quite lazy and love the comfort. We hate hitchhiking, backpacking or sleeping in a tent. We like to eat well, sleep only in luxurious hotels and travel comfortably in a private cars.

Let’s travel the world

Before we started travelling, we were reading books and blogs of the people who are full-time travellers.

They looked all so perfect and sophisticated! We were nothing like them. We looked and behaved like an average people and we actually felt like them.

And than, one day, we decided to screw it! Screw all the stereotypes and beliefs about the people who make their dreams come true. WE decided to be like them, no matter how we look and what we think about ourselves.

And here is what we think:

FATTIES

We weight much more than an average people. We are not skinny and we often have difficulties in finding the right clothes for us.

We are fighting everyday to loose weight. REALLY. We do sport everyday, we eat healthy food and avoid sugar. And so what? We are still not skinny.

I try to keep losing weight but it keeps on finding me

We tried dozens of diets including Copenhagen diet, high-protein diet, vegetarian diet, vegan diet and many more! With no result, haha.

We both have some health conditions that hinder weight loss. But we don’t complain and we stopped give a s**t about that. We eat good and work out everyday and that’s all that matter!

The way you look shouldn't stop you from travel around the world.
You can be fat, ugly or even crippled. It DOESN'T MATTER. 
Travelling is for everyone, you just have to find your own way of 
doing this.

FREAKS THAT BELIVE IN LIFELONG LOVE

Oh wow, we are so sorry that we didn’t record all awesome advices from more experienced people!

They said that we are dumb to get married so fast (we were 23 and 24 years old), they said that we should have fun, go wild and do crazy things before settling down.

let's travel the world

WHY MARRIAGE IS CONSIDERED AS AN EXHAUSTING COMMITMENT?

Are we the only people who believe that the best thing in life is to go wild TOGETHER with someone you love?

There are so many stupid myths about the relationships that we actually wrote a separate post about that.

We don’t believe in ‘personal space’ and ‘passing love’ bullshits. The last time we were apart was 2,5 years ago. And our love is now stronger than ever.

Real men stay faithful. They don’t have time to look for other women because they’re too busy looking for new ways to love their own.

We really don’t understand the people who claim that they are too afraid of commitment. Or that they are not ready to get married. We believe that only person who didn’t find their true love could say things like that. If you really, really love someone, you will enjoy every second you can spend together. And lifetime won’t be enough for you.

Travelling as a couple is easy. Spending a lot of time together 
can't destroy your relationship. It can only check whether it's
true and if you chose the right person to spend your life with.

NON- NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS

English is NOT our first language. We were born and raised in Poland and we communicate with each other only in Polish language.

At the beginning we thought it is crazy to travel the world and write a blog in English. But we knew it’s the only way to reach the whole world, to connect with people from different countries.

Niagara falls and us

Oh God, if you’d only know how insecure we felt (and to be honest we still feel) about our English! We are always afraid to make mistake and we are pretty worried that our posts will be worst from native English bloggers.

We are always nervous before recording the video when we speak in English.

But again, we don’t give a s**t! We are improving our language everyday and we know that one day we will be just like native English speakers.

Your English doesn't have to be perfect to travel the world. 
You just need to know basics to communicate with other people 
abroad. Words like 'drink', 'food', 'bed', 'toilet' are often
enough, haha!

 BROKE ALL THE TIME

No matter how much we earn- we are always broke!

We spend all our money on travels, so the more we have, the more places we are visiting.

The worst part of it is that we love luxurious travels. So our budget is always very high. And to be honest, there are always better hotels to choose or more expensive tickets to buy.
Working online on the beach

We still don’t fly in the business class but we know it’s only the matter of time.

We are poor compared to millionaires we want to be in the future. But we work hard everyday to get richer!

Travelling is for everyone. You just need to plan your budget 
carefully andstick to it.
You will probably never had enough money to finance all your dreams. 
So fulfil them step by step!

INSECURE AND SHY INTROVERTS

We are not outgoing, cheerful and sociable people. In fact, we are rather shy and we like to spend time together instead of meeting new people.

We like silence, the sound of waves and the wind. We don’t really like parties and loud music.

We are introverts and have difficulties in trusting someone we don’t know.

Visiting long neck tribe

Sometimes we want to talk with a stranger because he seem to be interesting. But usually we are too shy to come in.

And so what? That’s who we are! We are trying hard everyday to overcome our shyness. Blogging is a great way to increase our self-confidence.

You don't have to be extrovert to travel the world. 
Travelling is foreveryone no matter how shy or insecure you are!

TERMINALLY ILL

We live with a very serious illness. I mean, one of us is terminally ill but it affects on both of us.

This disease require periodic testing and checking if it’s not getting worse. Usually it ends with cancer and the people with this illness don’t live long (they live for approximately 50-60 years).

Mai Chau Travel Tips from Karolina and Patryk

We don’t think it’s necessary to write what exactly this illness is. All you need to know is that it’s possible to travel with health problems!

You don't have to be healthy to travel the world. 
Being terminally ill shouldn't stop you from fulfilling
your dreams.

CONSTANT LOSERS

We had so many failures in our lives that we can’t even count them. Our company was in trouble many times. We periodically have debts and financial problems.

We were sick many times or had some family issues to solve. Most projects that we started didn’t succeed. Out of 10 attempts we have taken, 9 of them are usually failures. And only 1 is a success.

Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.

We are constant losers. Life is beating us down but we NEVER give up. We get up stronger after every hit.

What you can see on our blog looks like a fairytale. We are young, in love, rich and travel the world. It’s not the whole truth about us but we don’t like to write about problems. Because we really don’t see the reason why! Everybody has enough struggles to endure, so why sharing it in public?

The world has permanent shortage of positive informations, inspirational people and motivational content. So we share only positive informations because that’s what we all need! Happiness.

Karolina and Patryk

It doesn’t matter how many times you fail. All that matters is how many times you get up to fight for your dreams.

We work 8 hours a day, 7 days a week to improve our online business. Than we spend at least 4 hours a day on working on our blog. For the other 4 hours we are travelling and having fun. And the rest we spend on resting and sleeping.

We use 100% of time we have and don’t waste it on stupid things like watching TV series or following Kim Kardashian on Instagram.

It doesn't matter how bad your life is right now. All that matter 
is that you have your dream. Make it your life goal, work hard 
and you will succeed- let's travel the world just like us!

    As a non native English speaker I worry about my English too!
    I love your positive attitude, I think that people that don’t fail don’t ever leave their comfort zone because they prefer to stay safe from failure but failure is part of life, sometimes you fail and sometimes you succeed.
    Happy traveling! 🙂
