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’ve been wanting to get back to the Balkans after first visiting Croatia in 2015. There are so many things to see and do here, but in the spirit of slower travel we’re going to limit ourselves to visiting Montenegro and a wee bit of Albania. Our plan is to sea gaze and walk, walk, walk while here. We’re hoping to do a guesthouse to guesthouse walk in the ominous sounding Accursed Mountains. We’re both rather eager to see how that goes.
We’re taking a very quick trip to Copenhagen as we’re using it as our launching point to the Faroe Islands. We are glad to have whatever few days we can in this beautiful city. We are hoping for much better weather than the last time we were here, but then again, we’ll just be happy to be here.
The Faroe Islands: the love child of Norway and Scotland, but raised by Iceland. We sure do love our cold islands.
What’s that you say, you didn’t know Neustift bei Güssing is a real place? Well, truth be told we didn’t either until we saw this amazing house sit opportunity pop up. The homeowner had such amazing responses from people that she decided to extend her holidays and invited us to care for her dog and two cats while she’s away. We are so excited to be able to explore this part of Austria and even more excited to be doing so in the autumn.
