Hi guys!

We are Beatrice&Jacopo, two guys who love to travel and discover the world. In this blog we talk about our experiences abroad, hoping that they can be of help and inspiration to those who would like to leave, but for one reason or another, still find themselves in their comfort zone.

“Keep both eyes open” represents our personal way of seeing the world, which does not deserve to be looked at with only one eye open. In order to be able to grasp all its beauties, peculiarities and differences, with both eyes open you are able to go further and not just stop at appearances.

So, welcome to our passport of experiences!

In this section you will find all our articles written in English, so that you too can participate in our journey together.
