Twippers of the Week: Matt and Holly from Far From Home!

Current city: Vienna, Austria

Age: 28 and 23

Total countries visited: Matt has visited 54 and Holly has visited 42.  We were both big travelers before we met, however together we have visited 25 countries.

What makes you interesting: We are both very open minded, we like to try new things and go to new places that we haven’t been before. We are very spontaneous with our travels, once we talk something we make it happen. We are always on the move!

What brands do you love: We love Landrover, hence our vehicle the Defender! Kathmandu is another one that has definitely been very helpful along our travels! We love things made by a Master Craftsman!

What does “Travel” mean to you: Travel means a new experience, a new culture, new people – a shock to the senses.

What is the best part about having a travel partner: It’s exciting getting to talk about our travels afterwards, we reminisce a lot, we get pumped for new adventures by talking them through with each other. We have made so many incredible memories together and it has brought us so much closer together!

If you were given a free trip tomorrow, where would you go: Madagascar – right now we are in Austria and its freezing! We love tropical beaches, any beach actually.

#1 thing you must do when traveling: Be spontaneous, loose and open. The best memories are made from things you didn’t plan!

What’s your favorite passport stamp: The Machu Picchu stamp, it’s the only stamp in our passports thats not from a border.

Describe your most unique or funniest travel experience: The Amazon jungle – we had the opportunity a few years ago to camp in the rainforest with native people and shamans. It was an unforgettable and life changing experience. Not long after we got home we sold everything we had and left New Zealand to see the world.

Next travel destination: At the moment we are in Austria where we will be spending the winter close to the Alps. The goal is to try to not die, go snowboarding and have fun!
