Created out of a shared love for travel, Vid and Savi launched their travel blog Bruised Passports to document their time in all corners of the world. With a keen eye for detail and a talent for storytelling they turned their travel journey into a business after visiting 50 different countries. The name comes from the fact that their passports were all battered and bruised because of the numerous visas and stamps on them. “We thrive on a location-independent lifestyle and looking at our passports all bruised gives us a sense of joy and passion,” says Savi.
To build this business and pursue their passion, Vid and Savi both made the difficult decision to leave their jobs“Starting anything from scratch is never easy but add to that the fact that it’s something that is not considered ‘normal,’ you end up facing a lot of questions from everyone around you,” says Vid. “I remember my manager telling me that we were foolish to leave our well-paying jobs to travel the world and build this business but we are so happy with the decision that took us on journey where we gained amazing experiences, a thriving business venture, and the most loving and supportive online community of Bruised Passports readers.”
