We are a polish-dutch couple whose dream was to travel the world. We met back in 2012 at work, chemistry connected us... literally as we are both chemists. We always talked about travelling as about being millionaires… like it’s not possible but since February 2015 we are on the road. We have visited many Latin American countries, made some stops in our beloved Europe to rest and recharge. With new energy and passion we started the second part of our journey in the Middle East. Currently we are exploring Asia which was our biggest dream since the beginning. We don't have a fixed plan, just dreams and openness for what the day brings 🙂


He’s the geeky one in our duo. Master of computers, now fascinated with programming. Nowadays he practices chemistry only in the kitchen. He is an amazing cook and he loves experimenting and learning new cuisines. JD might seem shy but after some time (or booze) he can be quite a talker.


She’s the social one. She could talk one to death and if not she could definitely kill with her loud laugh. Marta is the brain of the project and a big planner. Her big passion is photography and lately also crochet. She also loves eating whatever JD cooks.

You're going to one of the places we have visited and you want to ask us a question? Or maybe you just decided to quit your job and see the world? Well here is our email to ask and tell us all about it 🙂 jandirk@insearchofumami.com or marta@insearchofumami.com
