Steps of 2 Foreigners

We're two adventurous souls from different corners of the world, whose paths crossed in Brazil, and the rest is history.

Our motto, "Go out and make memories," is a reminder that true happiness lies not in material possessions, but in the moments we share with loved ones. So come along for the ride, join our crazy journey, and let us inspire you to make memories that will last a lifetime.

Who are we?

Welcome to our personal website! Our story began in 2016 when we ​met at a French coffee shop in Brasilia, Brazil while I, Adam, was ​backpacking through the country. It was an instant connection ​that led to spending weekends together, visiting local parks, ​working out, and going on road trips. We are from very different ​backgrounds, with Bernardo hailing from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, ​and myself from Leesburg, Florida. However, we bonded over our ​shared love of travel, fitness, and exploring new cultures.

After a few months of dating, we took our first international trip to ​Thailand during Brazil's Carnival, an experience that strengthened ​our relationship and led us to decide to move in together. It took us ​some time to find the perfect apartment, but once we did, we ​started making it our home. We both continue to work hard in our ​jobs, and I love to document our memories on video, which led us to ​create our first YouTube video in March 2017. We are excited to ​share our adventures with you as a same-sex couple and hope to ​inspire others to follow their dreams, no matter where they lead.
