Tell us a bit about yourselves…

How did yours travels together start?

Where’s been your worst trip and why?
Luca: Never had a worst trip!
Where was your most romantic trip and why?
Luca: In Paris, two years ago. Alessandro took me in the city of love for his birthday. The best birthday ever!
Have you ever experienced homophobia or discrimination abroad?
Alessandro: Never, fortunately. But of course we have to pay more attention in some countries where religion is deeply rooted.
Would you avoid a certain country because of the laws there?
Luca: The countries which have illogical laws are not on our bucket list!
Ever been to a country where it’s illegal to be gay?
Alessandro: Never before.
Do you prefer to travel solo or with a partner?
Alessandro: We both found the perfect partner to travel with.
Do you ever hope to get married, and if so, would you consider a destination wedding?

What is your favorite thing about where you’re from?
Alessandro: Italy is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and the food is unbeatable.
Where were you going the last time you stepped on a plane, other than home?
Luca: The last flight we took was been two weeks ago, to move from Java island to Bali.
What is your top tip for surviving a long haul flight?
Alessandro: Watch a film, sleep, eat, repeat.
What do you like to travel wearing?
Luca: Light clothes like tank top, shorts and flip flops.
Where do you hope to visit this year and why?
Alessandro: We’d love to explore Indonesia from West to East and then move to the Philippines.
Where did you typically go on holiday as a kid?
Luca: Always in Italy with our parents. It has some of the most beautiful mountains and seas of Europe, so it was hard to choose where to go!
