Today is different cause today we celebrate one year of an awesome marriage that knows no compromise. This past year has been the most amazing and adventurous of our lives and believe us when we say that we had no idea what kind of a journey we were embarking on. We travelled to thirteen countries, slept in vans, compact cars, tents, airports (and in front of them), smelly hostels. We lived with a dead chicken for nine days and had to work for an extremely racist bandana-wearing farmer. We hiked mountains in flip flops and froze our asses off riding a motrobike for ten hours straight in Northern Vietnam. We made lots of stupid mistakes and got at least six different tickets. We both have new impressive scars, one of us in a shape of Australia and the other one on a forehead, Harry Potter style. We stood by each other through mental breakdowns, anxiety, home sickness, panic attacks, tummy issues, 25-hour bus rides, 24/7 peanut butter meals and four days with no shower (hardest one!). We are very proud to say that we kept loving and protecting each other even when we hated each other so here is to the most beautiful, challenging and inspiring friendship of our lives. Cause we really meant it 365 days ago when we said that this thing was forever. beautifully captured by the talented @shack_shots!
The main reason why we loved Maui so much is the fact that we have felt like having a home for the first time since we left Poland over 9 months ago (@brittany17117 ). Having a warm shower, a washing machine and a comfy bed to sleep in for the first time since February was also a nice bonus. The island itself is a chilled out paradise. Everything seemed easy there and after struggling with our inspiration for a while this was the place where we finally got our joy of creating back. This may sound stupid for some of you, but we believe that this is because Maui is not an instapopular place. There are no special places that you just have to visit and take a picture, no pressure, no tons of other creatives you feel the need to compare yourself to. It just you, your camera and beautiful nature. Hope it doesn't sound weird and we are not the only ones who felt this way at some point. Or are we?
