Hi there! We’re Hugo and Noemie, the traveling couple behind We Wander Asia. In 2015, we fell in love on the island of Nusa Lembongan and never looked back. We’ve been together ever since, until the laws were about to separate us as we’re not the same nationalities. That’s why we’ve left everything behind to travel the world and stay together! We blog, vlog, take pictures and share our newest adventures with the world and hope to inspire you along the way.
We Wander Asia: the story
You might wonder why we’ve initially started this platform. While preparing our trips in Asia we were always searching for information on different websites. This is time consuming and when you travel you want to enjoy as much as you can. So we felt the need to create one website that contained all the information so others could effectively prepare their trip. After a lot of research and with great help of our friends from all over the world, we launched We Wander Asia in September 2016.
During that last year of 2016, we had been living together in a little apartment in Amsterdam. Unfortunately we got the sad news that Noemie her visa was ending and that she had to leave the the Netherlands. One thing was for sure though, we were not about to get separated by the law. We decided to see the entire thing as an opportunity to jump into a new adventure. Traveling had brought us together, now it seemed like the only way to keep us together.
So we decided to sell everything, move out of our apartment and book a one-way ticket to the Philippines! Armed with our cameras and a good dose of excitement, we’ve started blogging and vlogging (see a #vlog here) our way through Asia. Not a reality show about us (thank god) but an adventure where we look for the (hidden) treasures of this continent and share them with the world.
