Life is not meant to be spent in one place, and when destiny brings 2 people together who think the same way magical journeys follow!

Panel 1

First #HoldMeEverywhere Shot

#HoldMeEverywhere @ Borobudur
#HoldMeEverywhere @ Borobudur, Java, Indonesia

We both love travelling, and as soon as we got together we embarked ourselves in many adventures across every continent. It was January 2011, we were away from each other for a month, Leon was working in Amsterdam, Marcela was taking time off, in-between jobs, diving the Philippines. We both met again in Manila and took a flight to Java in Indonesia, a country we both haven’t experienced before. A great place to start new memories.

It was there, in front of us, the breathtaking Borobudur temple. We were lucky to sleep in the hotel located on the gardens of the temple, so we had access to this masterpiece when the doors were open but also when the doors were closed. We wanted to take a different picture, that symbolised how much we care about each other, and there is where that magic happened. At that moment we didn’t know that we would repeat this pose in so many places. When we hit the next destination we knew this was going to be our trademark.

And this is us

@marcelaugaz, Peruvian, @leonacda, Dutch, we both share a passion for travelling, and we have been lucky enough to travel to many places around the globe. We used to live in Amsterdam, there is where we met and where we got together. Amsterdam was a perfect base to Europe, Americas, Africa and Asia. We took many #holdmeeverywhere pictures there which you will find in our instagram @holdmeeverywhere!

In our search for the ‘next place’ we moved to Sydney, which is a perfect base for Oceania and also for Asia, so we can explore new parts of the world, and repeat some of our favourite ones (of course!)

We live in Bondi Beach – we could not think of a better place where we could combine working as a consultant and living in a holiday destination both at the same time!

We will continue to share our adventures with the curious travellers out there. Follow us at @holdmeeverywhere!




Panel 3


In 2010 we started a tradition to hold each other very tight all over the globe – same pose, different background, always an amazing one! We have collected so many memories – and pictures – since then! We love to share these adventures and awaken addiction for more and more travelling around the world. Where shall we go next?
