About Us

Olá! We are Pedro and Angelina, the Flores.

We are a couple of travelers behind Flores Around the World travel blog and we have a very international story. Pedro was born and raised in the north of Portugal and has already lived in 3 different countries. Angelina has Russian and Polish roots but calls the city of Porto her home for almost 9 years.

Our paths crossed by an accident, but when we bumped into each other, we actually realized how much we have in common! One of those things is a passion for traveling. Since a very young age, both of us always tried to save every cent to travel the world and discover new places, and until today it didn’t change.

Since we met, we have already traveled to the most part of Europe, several countries in Central and South America, and have already done our very first trip to Asia. All of this just in holiday mode, using the 22 days/year we have at our corporate jobs, both working in fashion retail management.

Many people admire how we manage it… Well, we don’t have a wealthy background, so for us it’s all a matter of priorities and good planning! That’s why we decided to start this travel blog – we want to share our experience of traveling as a couple and to help other people travel more. On this page, you will find a ton of helpful information about the destinations we visited, budget vacation ideas, proven travel resources for your trip planning and our very best travel tips that might be useful for your future travels!

Remember, if we can do it, you can too!

Our biggest dream for some years now is to go on an Around the World Trip, and we both share the same opinion – we have to fight for our dreams. That’s why we asked for a sabbatical year at our companies and are going to embrace this adventure soon. It involved a lot of hard work and preparation, but we are more than excited to start this epic experience and share it with you!

Don’t call it a dream. Call it a plan.

We also write about our adventures on Instagram and Facebook. We love to show a “B part” of our trips – the good and the bad surprises that we find on the way. Follow us not to miss it!
