  • Description

    We're Saif (pronounced like "Safe") from Saudi Arabia and Émilie (pronounced like "Émilie") from Canada, and we might have some sense of humor and a lot of adventure.

    We met while traveling in the Philippines and now going through Mexico and Central America. English is the common language between us; Émilie speaks Spanish and Saif intend to improve his while in Latin America. Our native languages are respectively French and Arabic.

    The both of us are super easygoing, curious and open-minded. We both put our professional life on hold to immerse ourselves in other cultures. We’ve hitchhiked thousands of kilometers in many different countries; it’s our way of meeting locals.
