People & Culture
We are happy to introduce you to the many interesting people we’ve met in our travels. We have laughed with them, ate with them, and listened to their stories, and hope that you enjoy a glimpse of our time together.
Walk in our shoes as we sit in a family home in Crimea years before it was taken over by Russian troops, spending time with a young mother whose song left us in tears; and laugh with us as we introduce you to the Butcher of Panzano, a man who cares about two things: meat (obviously!) and Dante Alighieri.
One thing is for sure, memories of our travels are made richer by the people we crossed paths with.

And I think to myself. What a wonderful world..
We give you a glance at the elements that have made places like these design innovators, and how their landscape, culture, and people influence their design.
Finally, we also take you on tours of causes we care about, like the Delta Airlines’ Flight for the Fight, a breast cancer awareness campaign.
Come. Wander with us. And joyeux voyage!
