LifeWeLove

Liwia & Joki

Webmasters

Biography

A couple from Poland addicted to adventure motorcycling. They first time showed up at the 6th Flying Monkey Adventure Rally during their big, open-ended motorcycle journey around Americas which still continues. They loved the event, became friends with the organizers and decided to contribute by making a website.
Website design and development is what they’ve been professionally doing for over 6 years, but after quitting office jobs and following their dream of transcontinental motorcycle vagabonding, they do that as “digital nomads”, only when having a break from riding. Their travel stories and practical tips can be followed on LifeWeLove.com.
