After 25+ years of professional guiding, we have decided to double down: here comes the story.
When we started working as local guides, after passing a rigorous, demanding written-and-oral exam on local and national history-art-architecture-geography in different languages, we were very, very proud. At that time every detail seemed equally important and significant and we spent our working time with big groups, delivering a rather fixed kind of tour.
This did not last long, luckily, because… we became pregnant (yes, both! at the same time!) and we paused to take care of our little ones. Later, when returned back to work, we became aware that the time for a significant change had come.
