Welcome to our blog, we’re both so glad you dropped by! ♡
Dorotea & Louise here! The BCF’s (Best Cousins Forever) who share the same passion for food, fashion, traveling, music, art, plays, and.. pretty much almost everything. We’re cousins by blood and best friends by choice. Together we created Dorotea & Louise, a travel and lifestyle blog. All the content on this site both photos and copy are created by us. We wish to create meaningful experiences that will outlive our raw memories and aspire to bask in the natural beauty of the world around us. We hope you enjoy reading our blog as much as we love making it for you. ♡♡ – D&L
