About Alex and Lisa

by admin on July 17, 2014

Several of you have asked us who exactly Alex and Lisa are, and what their story is, so we thought we would share their story with you using their own words:

Find out how this adventure began…

Back in the year 2000 I met a boy. I didn’t know it at the time but that moment changed my life. I know it sounds like a cliche and absolutely like cheese on toast but its completely true!

We were friends for years, eventually lovers and then went our seperate ways for a while…well…for 5 years!

After both of us going through some wild relationships we caught up again for a drink and instantly knew we should have never let each other go.

Within a few months we were planning the trip we’d both been dreaming about since that day back in 2000!

We put Alex’s business up for sale, put the house up for sale and worked all hours to save the pennies to make our dreams come true!

So finally…3 years down the line…business sold, house sold, jobs quit and our joint 60 years of life packed into boxes, sold and donated…the journey begins!

As a reminder, the Swiss leg of their adventure will be on August 26th at Swiss Miniatur. We will be posting invitation information on this website, so stay tuned!
