Some people dream of great accomplishments, while others just go and do them. This interview is about Claire and Max, a lovely and funny couple that fell in love and shared the same passion: images and travel. They travel around the world once a month since 2008. I discovered them on the web and I contacted them to do this interview. Something I admire, is people that work hard and at the same time live their passions and have fun…
Claire, Max, thanks for sharing. I’m looking forward to meet you guys soon!
