Hi! We’re Catherine & Miquel. A British – Catalan couple currently residing in Japan. We met in 2010 whilst volunteering on a nature reserve in the Ebro Delta, Catalonia, and since then we have enjoying living in various countries and travelling as much as we can.

Our travel style is simple. We love nature! Even when visiting some of the biggest cities in the world, we seem to end up in a national park. Since Miquel has his PhD in invasive bird species, and Catherine in Arctic river ecosystems, between us we visit some pretty interesting places!

We are currently living in Matsumoto, Japan where we are working as researchers at Shinshu University. This is the perfect place for hiking trips in the mountains.
