Welcome to Marco & Kit’s World

Hey! We are an Italian/Malaysian mixed-race couple who, since 2009, has traveled from Malaysia to Italy overland multiple times. Almost 10 years later, we still live in Southeast Asia, from where we keep hitting the roads less-trodden and the countries most misunderstood, writing and photographing our adventures for some of the world's best travel publications. It's time to get back to where everything started - this website - to provide you with inspiring travel information that will seriously make you want to jump off that office's window - especially if you have well-passed your 30s... because, if we can do it, you can do it too, wherever you live! We are here to prove it, and you'll just love it.

How to visit Tangkoko National Park, North Sulawesi’s wildlife jewel

We are surprised that, with such a bounty of wildlife, Tangkoko national park in North Sulawesi still remains such an offbeat nature reserve in Indonesia.

The Truth on Traveling as a mixed race couple in Pakistan
