It was no secret Nursing never made us happy… 
We come from humble families, life was never easy on us. From a very young age, both of us realised we’d have to fight arduously to earn every single opportunity that came our way! πŸ’ͺπŸ½β€¨β€¨Because we were never afraid of making bold moves or closing chapters, we left everything in London, got married and embarked on a 5 month honeymoon around Asia. AND THIS CHANGED OUR LIVES FOREVER! πŸ˜Œβ€¨β€¨For 5 months, we were free, in the broad sense of the word. The only responsibility we faced was always staying true to ourselves and widening our horizon. 

One day, in Thailand, after submitting hundreds of job applications (literally) and all of them coming back as a solid β€œno”, Rui heard a voice saying β€œhow many more doors do we have to close for you to understand that you need to build your own door and open it with your foot?!”
 🚨 And that’s how @era.agueda was born. πŸš¨β€¨ We’re still taking care of people. 
We’re still spreading love. But this time we’re helping others do what we do best: chasing dreams! Because we are living proof they come true. 🀍⚑️

The second and last photos sum up these 3 amazing days! πŸ™ˆπŸ€ After spending the day under more than 30Β°C, a pool party and lots of πŸ₯‚, we figured everyone would be hungry and craving anything but any sort of formality. 🍻 πŸ§–πŸ½β€β™€οΈWet hair, loose clothes, no makeup, toasts and tears were the main characters of a relaxed dinner where love was overflowing! πŸ€πŸ«‚ β€œThank you” will never be enough to show how grateful we are to everyone who showed up and made this day the best of our lives. 😌πŸ₯Ή πŸ“ @halmanature πŸ“Έ @trippinwild #weddinginspo #gaywedding #gaycouple #wedding

WHAT TO DO AFTER AN AMAZING POOL PARTY?! β€¨πŸ‘‰πŸ½ We figured everyone would be hungry after the pool party (and in desperate need of fresh water - due to previous high levels of alcohol 😏 mixed with good music and good friends πŸ˜ŒπŸ«‚) Words will never be enough to describe this day, and we’ll keep saying this forever!! ♾️
We felt SO LOVED, and gave SO MUCH LOVE! Love heals. Love is always the answer. Read that again. πŸ«‚πŸ€ πŸ“ @halmanature πŸ“Έ @trippinwild #wedding #weddinginspo #gaywedding #lgbtqia

What would you do in a place like @halmanature in August, under 35Β°C?? It seemed obvious to us. β˜€οΈπŸ˜ πŸ‘™ We asked everyone to wear comfortable clothes, nothing fancy, and to bring swimwear because a 3 day wedding, during summer, without enjoying the pool would be a crime!! 🀯 Everyone had lots of fun, some were thrown in the pool against their will - ups πŸ˜— 🀣 - some got drunk inside the pool - Mr. Bruno 🀫 - and some even decided to lead a hydrogymnastics class - @catarinaj96 Looking at these photos is reliving those moments over and over again… πŸ₯ΉπŸ€ πŸ“Έ @trippinwild #gaycouple #weddinginspo #gaywedding #poolparty #wedding

Probably one of the most touching moments of the day!!πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ’ We believe we’re spiritual beings living a physical experience and we are extremely sensitive to energy, as most of you might know. As our wedding was not only about us, but about love. We knew from day one that we wanted our wedding rings to pass by everyone’s hands individually before they reached us. Eleven of our best friends, our groomsmen and women, chose our wedding rings and every single guest put their love and energy on them before we could feel them as eternally ours. 😌🀍 It was one of the most powerful moments of our lives!! πŸ₯Ή Ps.: As two super mature adults, we couldn’t think of a better way to decide who would share their vows first than doing paper rock scissors. Rui won. Because he always has to. πŸ˜’πŸ‘€πŸ˜‡ πŸ“Έ @trippinwild πŸ“ @halmanature #gaywedding #wedding #gaycouple

Our wedding day was not just about us. πŸ₯Ή It was about love. We did everything in our power to ensure every single person around us felt loved, seen and heard. πŸ«‚ We asked every guest to dress comfortably, in pastel tones, with whatever made them feel beautiful. No formalities, no high heels. We also followed this β€œrule” and wore the most comfortable clothes we could think of, along the lines of a minimalist kimono, inspired by a dear friend from Cyprus. πŸ€πŸ‡¨πŸ‡Ύ To every single one of those who made this day memorable, we’re forever grateful. Love is ALWAYS better when shared. πŸ“Έ @trippinwild πŸ“ @halmanature

A letter to Diana, one of the most important women of our lives. It has been more than 10 years since the Universe decided our paths should cross and, as we write this, we can only think of how and when we’ll find you during our next life, and the one after that… Because we will! πŸ«‚ Thank you for always being a lighthouse, even when you’re in the dark and your own light is dim. Thank you for always having the right word at the right moment, even when your own poems can’t find a way to rhyme. Thank you for being one of the most powerful women we’ve ever met, always ensuring those around you are even more powerful. Thank you for showing us it is possible to be kind, loving, brave, resilient and honest all at the same time, with the same intensity. Thank you for being the best wedding celebrant we could’ve asked for. Thank you for being the best friend anyone could ask for. Our wedding day was not about us. It was about love. We found no better way of showing how much we love you, than asking 5 of your best friends to talk about you. They all said the same things. We could’ve asked the whole world, and surely the answers would’ve been exactly the same. Because you’re light, to every single person around you. We are forever grateful for you, to you. After all this time? ⚑️🀍 πŸ“Έ @trippinwild πŸ“ @halmanature

Currently in Portugal, through heavy winter, thinking of when we complained of how high the temperature in Thailand was. 🫠 Be grateful!!! πŸ˜‚ πŸ“ @kimptonmaalaibangkok #gaycouple #honeymoon #thailand #bangkok

2023, the best year of our lives! πŸ₯‚πŸ«‚ πŸ’« We started with a toast, on our balcony, overseeing London, admiring the stars, with some of the most important people in our lives. πŸ‹πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ We realised we could finally achieve our dream bodies, by eating properly (probably the most important part) and by learning how to workout like a beast (thanks to the Master @miguel_calafate ). πŸ’ We got married and it was the first day we felt an infinite love bubble around us. The happiest day of our lives. We would live it all again if we could! ✈️ We left London, our jobs, everything and got ready for a self-discovery journey around Asia. We were one month in and we had already figured out what we wanted to do with our lives! πŸ˜… The following three months were all about deconstructing our inner demons and understanding we’re too small to worry about tomorrow. This will all come to an end in no time. Might as well live life the way you want! πŸ“΅ And finally, we realised we don’t belong here, online, on the front line. Making the decision of stepping away from social media completely changed our lives for the better. We’re finally aligned with our purpose here on Earth, and you’ll hear about it during the next few years. 🀫😌 πŸ‘¨β€β€οΈβ€πŸ’‹β€πŸ‘¨ We’re very grateful for everyone who crossed our path this year, good or bad it was always a lesson. We wish you all the best and please enjoy life. This will all be over in the blink of an eye. ✨ #newyear #2023 #newbeginnings

Who never had their photo ruined by a small little detail?? πŸ™„πŸ˜… πŸ“ @kimptonmaalaibangkok #gaycouple #photography #photoediting #photoshop

This is what we loved the most about @kimptonmaalaibangkok πŸ‘‡πŸ½ πŸŠπŸ»β€β™‚οΈ The infinity pool with amazing views over Bangkok! (The main issue was to convince Rui it was time to get out! πŸ˜…) 🍸 Did anyone say free drinks? That’s right, there’s a social hour around the pool! We had an amazing time and met fellow travelers! 🐩 They have the happiest 4 legged guests! Our inner child was screaming silently ALL THE TIME! 🫣 πŸŒƒ The best panoramic view in Bangkok from the 40th floor rooftop bar @bar.yard (even Rui forgot he is afraid of heights! πŸ™ƒ) A true quiet gem in the middle of such a vibrant and diverse city! Our stay in Thailand couldn’t have started off any better. 😌🀍 #collab #kimptonmoments #kimptonmaalaibangkok #travel #thailand #bangkok
