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 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.
There were several souvenirs from Portugal in the house Jill was staying in in Portishead from December to January. So, when planning to head to Oman fell through, naturally all the subliminal messages about Portugal arose in her brain. Suddenly, it was so clear! Let’s spend the month in Lisbon. So that’s what we’re doing. It’s close to where we are and where we’re going and we loved what little we saw of it the last time we were there. It’s time to explore the city that everyone seems to love.
We’re heading back to Scotland! I know it seems like we should just move here already. Scotland is one of our favorite places, so when we saw a house sit come up for Dunblane and two adorable kitties, we knew we had to apply. We’re so fortunate to have booked this sit. We’ll be in Dunblane for a couple of months and will be able to head into Glasgow and Edinburgh both in under an hour. This does sort of feel like a homecoming.
