Nerd Nomads – Helping Your Adventures Come True
The ancient temples of Petra in Indiana Jones, the tropical island paradise of The Beach, or the deserts of Lawrence of Arabia. Growing up we dreamt of seeing these kinds of wonders ourselves. One day we packed our bags and set out to transform our cinematic inspiration into real adventures. Thirty countries later and we are still exploring. – Maria & Espen
