  • OUR BIGGEST JOURNEY SO FAR 🐻 | Wildlife Travel Couple: Bugs & Bears

    1,140 views 4 months ago
    Time to share our story! We are Doris & Matthias, an adventurous couple travelling the world and sharing our best outdoor and wildlife experiences. Wildlife Travel is our passion.

    Both of us are from the countryside of Austria. We first met at high school. In fact, it took us four years to finally get to know each other on a school trip to Spain. That was more than 10 years ago. Since then, we’re a couple and travelling together.

    We started backpacking on a very tight budget, taking three weeks every year to explore South East Asia and South America and we loved everything about it – the culture, the food and trying new sports. Learning how to scuba dive opened this whole new world under the ocean surface to us. So we got more and more excited to explore other places on Earth that offered amazing diving and wildlife experiences off the beaten path.

    Back home in Vienna, we both work as brand and digital designers and are voluntary ambulance men. We both enjoy bouldering, lindy hop and ever since we met we’ve been experimenting with new cameras and loved capturing our travel memories.

    This year, we left for our biggest journey so far – a wildlife trip around the world. Finally, time to explore truly remote places and search for our favourite animals in their natural habitat. Hearing their breath, their paws on the frozen grass and their captivating songs is something worth every struggle. And definitely something worth protecting.

    We really hope to share our excitement for the wild and encourage you to get out there, to travel and head on your own adventure. We’d appreciate it a lot if you subscribe to our channel, drop us a message on Instagram @bugsandbears and become part of our wildlife travel community!
