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.
We are going to eat, drink, hike and house sit our way around the globe. It's not always going to be pretty, but we'll be sure to tell you the good and bad about life on the road.

We love adventure, travel and change. We seek new experiences and lessons daily and we want to share it all with you.
Where We Are and Where We're Going
Morocco is huge. It's also a place we have both wanted to go for as long as we can remember. I just keep saying "I can't believe we haven't been to Morocco yet" over and over. Well, no we are. We are going to spend a little more than a month exploring the famed cities of this land along with a Berber village homestay and some time in the desert. Never mind that Zac and I both have issues with sand.
We left ourselves a very small patch of time to be able to visit Barcelona after our time in Morocco. We've both wanted to visit Barcelona for a very long time and it was a great place to jump in between Morocco and Mexico. There's much going on there these days so it such be extra exciting.
We didn't have it in mind to go to Merida, but a good friend of ours is getting married and we thought, well, we must go! And so we are off to Merida. Now that we've been doing some research it looks like we are likely going to enjoy ourselves immensely. Oh and we are going to eat well too...
We're so excited! We're doing a house sit in Los Angeles over the Thanksgiving holiday. Not only do we both love LA (maybe I should listen to Hewey Lewis) but the sit is for an amazing kitty named Baba and we will get to see some friends while in town. How fantastic is this? Pretty fucking fantastic.
We're heading back to the US. Well, just for a little while. We're going to be house sitting a couple of cats just outside of Portland, Oregon. We love this area and are looking forward to exploring the area some more. It's going to be rainy and chilly, but hopefully we can get outside and do some walking. If not, we know there are tons of good cafes around.
What's that you say? You don't know where Gjovik, Norway is? Well, we don't really either except that it is north of Oslo. We are incredibly ecstatic to have the opportunity to house sit for two cats during the summer season in this beautiful place. It's a long time before we will be here, but we just keep talking about it. Norway.
