Who are we

We’re Maya and Michal, a Slovak couple constantly looking for new adventures around the globe. Currently backpacking around the world.

Our friends describe us as adventurous people who love outdoor activities and trying new things. Most of our time we spend in nature hiking, biking, running or exploring new water activities.

With growing list of experience and questions from friends and coworkers, we launched our blog Travel with the Smile in June 2015, to share our travel stories and tips. Our goal is to inspire others to leave their comfort zone and live adventurously.
