We are Florine and Simon, adventurous world wanderers and curious photography amateurs. We love to explore new places and share our stories with friends and all.
We’ve been backpacking on tight budgets for a while, sleeping in a car for 6 weeks, taking freezing cold showers in New Zealand’s parking, waking up in a Melbourne burning hostel, and eating nothing but bread and peanut butter for 3 weeks. But now we both have settled jobs that finance our travels and allow us to try more comfortable experiences, like enjoying a 5 star hotel in Tokyo or flying over Heron Island on an exclusive helicopter. We want to share all of this through our blog: Ozawapi, an independent travel blog packed with photos and personal stories from around the world. We hope you will like it!
Ps: Ozawapi means “where are you?” in Lingala. Our friends asked us that question so many times that we thought it would be a nice touch 🙂
