We recently hosted a lovely couple from Brazil who are traveling the world and sharing their exploits on social media. Romulo and Mirella hatched a plan two years ago to see the world, and they’re making their dream come true through the kindness of strangers (like us) and a lot of hard work.
They started in South America, drove through Central America, and have spent the last ten months traveling the United States. They create a new video every day for their YouTube channel, post to Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat and probably other sites I’ve never heard of. They have sponsors helping pay their way, do odd jobs for cash, and make friends along the way. Most of their media is in Portuguese, but don’t let that stop you from sharing. It’s a lovely language.
Our friend Aron has hosted them and become good friends with them, so when they came through Boulder recently, he hooked us up with them and we offered our guest room for a night. They joined us for a special evening of dinner, laughter and Christmas decorating. Apparently Christmas is a low-key affair in Brazil (it’s summer down there!), so the whole Christmas tree, ornament and lights thing was new and novel to them.
Their videos and photos catalog an amazing life of adventures, and we’re just one more along the way. They hope to go to Europe next, then who knows where? We encourage you to follow them on their journey, and maybe it will inspire you like it has us.
