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.

Where We Are and Where We're Going
We're going to Georgia! The country not the state. We have both become more and more obsessed with exploring Georgia and we are getting our chance. We've booked our flight in to Tbilisi and then we're going to see how long we want to stay and just where we want to go. We can't wait.
We're headed to Armenia! Partly because it's Georgia's neighbor. Mostly because we've been intrigued by this small country for a while. And then there's the ever present Ararat that draws people in. We're really looking forward to our time here and plan do to some good walking. We're getting up close and personal with the mountains and villages throughout this land. We can't wait.
We're heading to Rome! We can't believe we've never been before, but we are going to change all that this summer. We're super excited because one of our dearest friends will be joining us there. This will be a great way to kick off our time in Italy.
We're going back to Vermiglio! Last summer we fell in love with this tiny town in northern Italy and we're so excited to be heading back. We'll be picking and drying flowers again but also plan on doing some more hiking. We CAN NOT wait.
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.
What was that you say? You want us to come house sit for you while you are away? Or need us to design your website? Don't hesitate to let us know! Note: If you want to sign up for our newsletter, you'll find that at the very bottom of the page.
