About Us

We are   Oksana & Max,
A nomadic couple inspired by the world, fuelled by curiosity, a sense of adventure, and a desire to make a positive impact on the destinations and communities we visit.

We are on a mission to explore the world in a responsible way, to take nothing but photographs and leave nothing but footprints. 

In 2015, we quit our jobs, sold our possessions and left the 9-5 life behind to embark on the biggest adventure of our lives. We’ve been traveling full time for the last 5 years and don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon!
