What is Visa-Vis?
Vis-à-vis is French and literally means "face-to-face". The term was first used in English to refer to horse-drawn carriages where two people sat facing one another. Today the term is used to compare or contrast things that are face-to face. We can think of no greater way to describe the travel adventures of two people who see, hear and experience each location differently. While things may appear to be the same, our approach and interpretation, generally is not.

Who is Visa-Vis?
We love adventure, travel and change. We seek new experiences and lessons daily and we want to share it all with you.
We're heading back to Scotland!!! Scotland has proven to be one of our absolute favorite places with some of our favorite people living in and around the area. So when a group of our friends said they wanted to have a reunion in Scotland for two weeks, we could not say no. We're so looking forward to hanging out with friends and doing some great walking in this beautiful place. Oh and I'll be reunited with sheep!!!
In a series of house sitting interviews that took place over 3 days, we faced the options of going to Ireland, Seattle or South Africa. And while we’ve never been to Ireland, we felt that we would have had enough of the cooler climes and opted to head to South Africa. First stop? Johannesburg!
That's right, the entire damn thing! We've decided we're going to road trip around this beautiful country and really try to get a feel for such a massively diverse place. We'll likely pop into Swaziland and maybe Lesotho but our main focus is going to be on SA itself. We're super excited to be exploring this complicated country.
We're going to be minding a gorgeous, fluffy Siberian kitty in Portishead, UK. We'll be close enough to Wales to finally do some investigating and close enough to go back to Bath. It's going to be chilly and perhaps a bit snowy, but hey, we need some winter back in our lives. And if things get too bad, we will hunker down in our cottage with the kitty and the fire until it all blows over.
Zac is heading to Los Angeles. We had the great fortune of sitting for Baba the gorgeous Maine Coon last Thanksgiving and Zac is going back for more. He's going to hang out with Baba and hopefully some other friends while there. Jill's going to be having a totally different experience in the UK for these weeks- brrrr...
