Elmari Janse van Rensburg, Arina Janse Van Rensburg

Travel-and-Home is the story of two sisters. Arina lives in Hungary (TRAVEL) and Elmari lives in South Africa, their birth (HOME) country. And that’s how and when Travel and Home came about when we started living on two different continents.

Amongst many similarities (sometimes we think we’re twins born 10 years apart), we share a passion for travel and the same surname (Janse van Rensburg), despite being married! No, our husbands are not related. It is a sheer coincidence! Or it was planned in the stars. Like our respective journeys to follow the stars across our spectacular planet. So far, we have already visited thirty countries on three continents.

To follow us search @travelandhome and you’ll find us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and on our website, Travel-And-Home.com.

If you’d like to join the team, drop any one of them a note in their DMs. The more the merrier. It would be quite cool to have someone from every country in the world to be on the team, publishing photos of their country! None of us are professional photographers, so don’t worry, you’ll fit in fine.

Or you’ve traveled quite a bit and have photos to share? You don’t have to be on the team to publish your photos. Go ahead, share, and show the rest of us how beautiful our planet REALLY is, if only we are open to it!

“When hotels say they’re carbon neutral, they usually mean they are taking the same amount of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere as they emit. That is often done through carbon offsets, which account for the hotel’s carbon emissions by removing carbon from the atmosphere. This can be done in several ways, such as planting enough trees to capture the amount of carbon dioxide the hotel emits or financing renewable energy projects or reforestation.”
