    • Thanks Nadine,

      Thank you for your well wishes ! And it’s not that hard to travel long term. Just be focused and realize that life is really short and if you aren’t taking risks and you aren’t really taking advantage of all the amazing things life has to offer. There is no practice time for life. Stuff and jobs aren’t really that important, friends and experiences are !

  4. Do you guys have a Facebook page????

  5. Hi Nestor and Heejung,
    I know it is quite late, but all the best wishes to your wedding. I really like the idea that both of you travel south America. Enjoy your trip, meet interesting people, enjoy the food and post some more of your great pictures.
    I hope that we will get the chance to meet again!

    Good luck and all the best,
