About us

New kids on the blog

Hey you travel enthusiast,

You have probably seen our YouTube vlogs or our Instagram pictures, but now you can also enjoy our adventures right here on our very own blog! If you are a first-timer then we are so grateful to welcome you and proudly introduce you to our first ever blog!

 So who are we?

We are Jean-Renald and Lisa Beau, a Dutch couple. We met each other in November 2019 in the Netherlands and have never left each others side since then.

Yes, we know that still does not explain who we are right? So get your hot beverage, maybe a healthy snack, and get comfortable.

So who are we really?

Jean-Renald has always been exploring the world around him and the world within himself. His age represents how many countries he has visited, 25 and counting! Besides visiting countries, he has been living in a few countries all over the world. Adventuring the wonders of the world and eating delicious authentic foods while meeting beautiful people. 

Lisa Beau had similar encounters while visiting fewer countries as Jean-Renald. She still got the travel bug! Her world changed when she lived abroad for the first time in Suriname! There she experiences what many of our fellow world explorers experience while traveling. She fell in love with the country, people, culture, and especially their food.

Besides our passion for traveling and eating delicious foods. We both have an interest in a sustainable lifestyle, positive psychology, and storytelling through our content.

For example, Lisa Beau loves to go thrift shopping and makes her own clothing together with her grandmother, while Jean-Renald studied sustainable development. Moreover, we both approach life with a growth mindset to life live to the fullest!

Now you know a little bit more about us and in the future, you will get to know us even better!
