Andre & Andrea | Florida to Colombia
We met on www.colombiancupid.com... I had been traveling to Medelillin, Colombia a few times and had always wanted to move to Colombia. A beautiful country with beautiful people with beautiful hearts. When we met online we both were single but could find the right person. She's 24 and hates dating guys her age. She's an ooooold soul in a young body. It's crazy. I'm 51, but I look 35, work out, vegetarian, and young as hell. So with her acting 30+ and me acting 30+...it's works. We are both business minded, travelers, and education. She's the quiet grandma and I'm the funny dude. Follow then on Instagram: @Introducing.andre @styledew

Lens & David | Argentina to England
Tirzah and Alix interview Aylén (Lens) and David (Pela). Lens went on holidays with her friends to London, and David went for a working interview. They accidently rented a room in house on Airbnb, believing it was the whole house they were renting. And due to some lucky events, they met. Then time was up, Lens kept on visiting some countries in Europe and David went back to SA to get all his belongings because he got the job at Hotel 41! Lens never believed they would see each other again, she thought the flash-love was going to stay there in London... (besides, there are some big details that led her to believe that was the end) but there was an external force that kept them together: TRUE LOVE!

On Anxiety & Independence
Inspired by a question from @aliciaswanepoel97 on Instagram "Do you think you guys could do a podcast on maintaining independence during long distance?
