About Us

Inseparable love birds since 2009, we found the wonders of travelling in 2014 after taking our very first trip together, at the young age of 20 years-old. Ever since then, we’ve been taking advantage of every break from our mundane, 9-5 jobs to explore different countries, cultures and mentalities.

Along these past couple of years, we started realizing every time our friends, relatives and co-workers wanted to go on their own trips, they would come to us for advises and suggestions. That would turn out to be the starting point to Circum-Mundum, our travel blog where we share all the things our journeys abroad have taught us.

Bruno Arcos

Football lover. Control freak. Designer of travelling masterplans. Born in 1993 in the beautiful city of Porto, he spent three years studying to get a degree in Hotel Management, only to find out he really loved to make a living out of writing (oh the curse of the millennials). However, he soon realized he could put his organizational skills to good use as soon as we started travelling in 2014… and hasn’t stopped ever since! With a map in one hand and a backpack on his shoulder, he keeps crossing destinations off his ever-growing wish list.

Daniela Fogageira

Nerdy bookworm. Chronic crier. Coffee House enthusiast. Remember that school kid always reading stuff and doing extra homework voluntarily? The kid that actually enjoyed being in the classroom? Well, that was Daniela! A walking emotional rollercoaster, she can go from «faith in humanity restored» to «I don’t wanna live in this world anymore» in a matter of seconds. This probably explains her passion for studying human and societal behaviours, which led her into a degree in Sociology. With a pen in one hand and a camera around her neck, she keeps on visiting new places and getting them all mixed together in her head to form a giant, never-heard of city.

What is Circum Mundum?

In this blog you will find everything you need to know about the destinations we have visited. Want to know what to see? How the public transportation works? How much it will cost you? We’ve got it all covered!

We also share our personal stories abroad. We believe the best way to advise others when it comes to travelling is more than creating a plain bucket-list of Do’s and Dont’s, and therefore you will also have the chance to read some of our weirdest, creepiest and most memorable experiences so that you can learn from them as much as we did.

This may sound like a tremendous cliché but it’s the truth: we travel because we believe that happiness is a journey, not a destination. It’s what we love to do and we want to spread the word about the wonders of travelling and share our happiness with others. Still, we decided that wasn’t enough. We truly want to bring joy to every place we visit and, therefore, we decided to start doing random acts of kindness in every city that welcomes us. Therefore, every time we travel, we’ll prepare a list of kind activities to spread smiles all around the world and share them with you here on Circum-Mundum.

Last, but certainly not least, we have a very special service for you. If you also have the desire of travelling the world, but have no idea where to start, we recommend checking the Your Trip page, as we can help you attain your goals while keeping up with your budget constraints.
