Our plan is to travel together across South America. For several months. By car.
Our trip will start on 12th January in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We have a place to stay for the first week. And that's all we have for now.
Why are we doing this?
Together we have about 18 years of experience in finance and consulting. For all these years, we have been working in amazing companies doing awesome projects. We've met extraordinary people and cultures in the 3 countries we lived so far (Portugal, Spain and Ireland). We got married last year (June 2014) after 5 years together and before moving to Dublin. More than 6 years together now and we've decided to do something really different in 2016: a one way trip starting in Brazil.
Our journey mission is to discover new places and find what we want to do next (the true is: we don't know!). And our blog mission is to share that with you!
At the same time we are both developing a project named Skills2Help, an online platform where everyone can use his own skills and contribute to social causes around the world. See more about our project here. We are trying to help social causes and contribute for a better world, so join us on this mission!
And why KONIGI?
Konigi means Share in the universal language Esperanto, the most widely spoken constructed language in the world. And Share means to distribute or contribute with something we have to a person or a group. And that is our vision for this Project: Share our journey with others. And what a journey we will have!
"We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It's easy to say "It's not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem." Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes."
