Marco MOST TREASURED TRAVEL EXPERIENCE

Travel to Shenzhen and Beijing, China for filming a movie where I had the pleasure of experiencing the cities for 45 days and I decided to eat like the chinese people to dive deep into the culture and the people

Erica MOST TREASURED TRAVEL EXPERIENCE

Travelled far and wide on a deep exploration and experiencing road trips across France, Spain, the Balearic and Canary Islands, Carinthia and the magnificent Woerthersee with my whole family.

Marco MOST DIFFICULT TRAVEL EXPERIENCE

Individually

I was filming in Abruzzo, Italy roughly 10 years ago, we were in the middle of the forest with -4 C degrees and on the way back from set the car engine broke down. None of us was a mechanic, it was 2 in the morning and no mobile signal. A bit of panic but we took it as an experience and we slept in the car till the morning after when we walked for 6 hours to reach the nearest city where to finally eat, rest and ask for help to recover the car. After the long walk we were a bit exhausted but it was a great day

Together 

When we went visiting Porquerolles in France which is a very natural and wild island we found it very difficult to stay out because of the wasps which were literally everywhere and stung us many time especially erica who was stopping by more often to take pictures

Erica MOST DIFFICULT TRAVEL EXPERIENCE

Individually

Finding a mountain rescue home while walking up to a romanian abbey on top of the Carpathian mountains at night during a snowstorm. 

Together

Trying not to fall and roll down into the cliffs during a walk across steep narrow natural trails in Porquerolles while wearing the wrong shoes and carrying a bicycle.

Marco’s CHALLENGES WHEN TRAVELLING

I prefer to have a schedule and cover all the places planned even if I have to rush it a little bit more while Erica tends to forget about the time and stays more on some places if she wishes to so sometimes we come to a compromise which is to let her see better a few places while trying to cover all the planned ones.

Erica’s CHALLENGES WHEN TRAVELLING

I could walk for hours and hours just to explore every aspect of a place and deeply learn all about it also going off-the-beaten path so I am more of a slow traveller while Marco prefers to do a bit of everything faster to allow most of the time to interview as many locals as possible

  2. Camping in Germany in the middle of nowhere
  3. We ate into an expensive restaurant and then we didn’t have enough money to pay so we washed the dishes
  4. When in Bath UK we missed the last train to Lonodn and then we were looking to stay at a hotel for free and finally we slept at the Hilton Hotel for free
  5. I interviewed a local in paris and asked about the sex life in Paris and then I asked to see some of his sister lingerie and we went home to film it
  6. I had no swimming pants so I joined a hydro-massage pool naked and some people left
