polaroid of the week germany berlin heart We usually post our Polaroid of the Week on Thursdays, but we decided to take the day off and celebrate our 7th anniversary with this special edition of our Polaroid today! We shared The Story Of Us before, but only few people know that it was 9th July 2006 when we actually admitted that we had fallen head over heels in love with each other. After a month spent together watching almost every game of the soccer world cup together, it took us until the grand finale to realize that we were more than just friends. We had no idea where our love story would lead us, but we sure didn’t think it’d bring us to Berlin, the place where the world cup final had taken place back then, seven years later. We also had no idea that we would be able to take this day off because we’d be working for ourselves, or be ‘digital nomads’ now as a matter of fact! But we followed our passion, our love and our dreams, and so here we are today, celebrating our love for each other and the lifestyle we have chosen together. The day could have not been more perfect – Berlin showed its best side today: with splendid summer weather, delicious food, and new neighborhoods to explore.

  1. Congratulations you guys! May your love for each other last forever! I don’t suppose you’ve ever heard of the “Seven Year Itch” have you? Just say’n, you may want to do something special this year just to prove that “old wives tale” is bunk.

    I know…………. On your way back to wherever, why don’t you drop by San Francisco and get hitched? The big news is that same sex couples can be legally married in California now, so says the Supreme Court!

    Or not…………. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Steve πŸ™‚ I have been talking about the seven year itch for the last 12 months (during our 7th year, since we’re actually celebrating day 1 of year 8 today πŸ˜‰ ) and I have a feeling Jess is super relieved that I have to stop talking about it now πŸ˜‰

  2. Ahhh, what a feel-good post for a slightly dreary (at least in Dushanbe, Tajikistan) Wednesday morning. Congrats and enjoy your day! X

    1. Thanks so much, Delia! You’re in Dushanbe, wow!! We have yet to travel to Central Asia but it’s high on our ‘travel bucket list’!

  3. Happy anniversary ladies and may you enjoy many many more happy years together – an inspiration to travelling lesbians everywhere!

  4. Congrats girls! We’ve been following you two since before we started our RTW trip. You’re post on Samara Beach in Costa Rica persuaded us to visit there for the first month of our trip. It’s so great to see that the two of you can celebrate 7 years together and traveling. Best wishes and godspeed to the both of you.

    P.S. We are in France but headed to Spain on Friday for the next few weeks. If you’re around we’d love to buy you two a drink!

    1. Thanks so much! How did you like Samara? I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! πŸ™‚ Now we’re tempted to come join you in France but we won’t make it anywhere south of Germany this year, I’m afraid πŸ™ Maybe our paths will cross in another part of the world, though! πŸ™‚

  5. 7 years! That’s so cool. ESPECIALLY within the context of travel. I like to ask other travelers how they cope with love. Did they ever meet someone who stole their heart and made them settle down and alter everything?

    You are exceptional in your partnership that combines both loves. Keep on keeping on!

    1. Thanks, Maria! We actually know quite a few solo travel blogger who ended up dating other travel bloggers – the perfect fit, right? πŸ™‚ We also heard quite a few stories about people settling down in a place because they fell in love there – having a partner to travel with is just perfect though! Well, you know exactly what I mean, I guess πŸ™‚
