Both born and raised in Bremen, Germany we met in 2009 to become friends and later a couple. Marc studied computer science and recieved a doctorate in 2014. Marlene, a nurse for the elderly, studied health management and graduated in 2014 aswell. As a nickname from a friend "Marc and Marlene" became "Marclene", only for the reason that it is shorter in written conversations. :-)
We went to Italy two times, to the Neatherlands and to Ireland but soon decided that Europe could be travelled later on in life. So the idea was formed to travel Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand and America and to do it in a row. So we gave up our flat and paused our carriers to go and see the world.
