Hi and welcome to our blog! We are Florence and Andy, the faces behind The Migratory Birds!

Travel is a passion of ours and we love to explore new places, get to know different cultures and try new and unique experiences.

On this blog we share our experiences, but also focus a lot on travel-planning as well as destination guides. With our posts, we aim to give you inspiration for your own travels and provide the tools you need to plan your own trips.

During the last years, we mostly explored destinations within Europe i.e., our own backyard. However, in May 2023, we will embark on a new journey! We don’t know exactly where this journey will take us yet, but we will probably spend the rest of 2023 in Asia!

This new journey is an effort to slowly make our way around the globe and tick off things from our bucket list. However, we will do so in no rush and try to be mindful of every new experience in order to enjoy them to the fullest!
