TL;DR: We’re Jana+Matt. Since 2015 we’re on a mission, an epic expedition, and an unofficial Guinness World Record attempt to become the 1st to visit all [post:whs_inscribed_total!29521] UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
We are Jana and Matthias, together we travel the world as GuideVenturous. Jana is Czech, and Matt is Swedish, born in Germany. We live in Spain.
We live in Barcelona, Spain. There, our job is to share our passions face-to-face with fellow travellers from all over the world. We are working as professional tour guides hosting our own Barcelona tours. As independent tour guides, we have the freedom to take days off whenever we want to. This way we can travel somewhere almost every month, well at least that’s how it was pre-Covid. The European wintertime is the low season for our work. This allows us to take our expedition outside of Europe on longer adventures.
