About Us Got2globe

All travels, experiences, adventures and contents of this travel blog website are authored by Marco C. Pereira & Sara Wong.

For over 18 years Marco C. Pereira and Sara Wong have felt impelled to travel the world. Got2Globe is driven by this obsession. It revolves around his travels, experiences, whims and looks of the Earth.

Get ready to dream of everything but don't expect anything concrete. Day after day, the destinations and experiences you will discover in Got2Globe will be the most unexpected. They will come to you without any obligation, routine or sequential logic.

In a flash, Got2Globe can switch from torrential rain to scorching sun and from photography to video. Go from the dense jungles of Vanuatu to the endless concrete forests of Tokyo, with scales on the top of a New Zealand volcano, in the depths of an Argentine glacier or over the huge dunes of an African desert.

Along the way, Got2Globe will also go through transformations and extensions with which it will adapt to what we live and explore. And to what our followers show more interest and pleasure in unraveling.

The Earth doesn't stop. Got2globe much less. Get ready for a long journey.

Marco Pereira

There is no known genetic or family history for the phenomenon, but the truth is that, even as a child, among other readings and youth consultations, Marco spent hours devouring the 12th edition of an old Atlas of the World authored by JRSilva, edited in December 2, 1976, by a such Portuguese Magazine Agency.

Much thanks to this colorful atlas, several of his friends had fun asking him about the capitals of the most unlikely countries, hoping he didn't know them. Usually in vain. Marco also often triumphed in Trivial Pursuit, with the strategy of perpetuating his moves by choosing, as much as possible, “blue” geography questions.

Until almost halfway through adolescence, he spent half the year in Lisbon and the other half in the wonderful, green and somewhat rugged countryside of the Lafões region, in northern Portugal. This wilder, more adventurous and withdrawn growth contributed to his early desire to explore and travel.

Marco made an effort to make his first car a VW Golf GTD (diesel) as little used as possible. He always had the idea of ​​filling it every weekend with people and discovering the country.

Around the age of 18, he planned and put to the vote of his group of friends several possible Inter-Rail itineraries. As a result of that vote, he set out on the first of these train journeys in a delegation of 13 teenagers in August 1990. Predictably, such a large group quickly proved unsustainable. Until 1994, he made three more Inter-Rails.

He started his professional life as an advertising copywriter in 1995, but it never left his mind that he would be much better off traveling.

In 2000, he published the first travel articles with images and experiences from the last of the Inter-Rails and a trip to India which he did however with other friends. In 2002, he was faced with the possibility of exchanging advertising creativity and everyday routine for travel reporting. And he took advantage of it.

By that time, I had already decided to complement the writing experience with learning and training in photography. CENJOR gave free after-work courses. He signed up for several. In one of them he met Sara. Shortly thereafter, they set out on a trip to the south of the India. They never stopped traveling together.

Sara Wong

Sara's travels started right before she was born. In the hot summer of 1975, still in her mother's womb, she “made” her first flight by plane to Faial Island – Azores, where her parents traveled to work to certify the functioning and possible modernization of the laboratory of a milling factory at that time. disabled.

It was, in fact, from these regular trips with parents and siblings, inside and outside the country, both for work and for leisure, that the taste for discovering grew. At the age of 7, he made his debut on an intercontinental flight with a route to Hong Kong to meet his paternal family, and in the following winter another long-haul flight to the United States of America to spend the end of the year festivities with his maternal family. Trip after trip, the restless taste for adventure grew and even the fear of flying didn't stop her from going out whenever she could.

Photography has also been part of her life from an early age. She doesn't remember exactly when she took her first photo, but she knows that it was with the Pentax ME that her father had already used on his travels in Asia and Europe. She ruined a lot of film until she took the first photographs, and even today there are no memory cards that can resist Sara's hands.

When he was 10 years old, on a summer vacation, he accompanied his uncle from Hong Kong on a report on the China Sea, and also had the opportunity to take underwater photographs. The unforeseen, novelty and journalistic themes discussed daily by the uncle made him want to do the same one day.

She started out as an official photographer for the family, then for the student association and for the Youth Ministry newspaper, until she realized that Photography was really destined.

Sara's training included the IPF – Portuguese Institute of Photography, Ar.Co – Center for Art and Visual Communication and CENJOR – Protocol Center for Professional Training for Journalists. Her photographic work has been published in the portuguese and foreign press for almost two decades, as well as some photographic projects presented in cultural spaces such as the FNAC galleries, the Electricity Museum and the Atrium Saldanha. Traveling and photographing are two of the things that give Sara the most pleasure.
