About us

Marta and Mandell are Lions Detour.

If we didn’t both make the decision to attend a mutual friends’ barbeque one summer afternoon, we wouldn’t be on this adventure.

From our very first conversation, it was clear we shared shared the same dreams.

A dream to carve our own path in life, travelling the world with no expectations and making a living out of what we love doing most.

Not long after that we started dating, and a few weeks more saw us exploring Europe together on a motorcycle.  

The rest is history!

We are constantly learning and being amazed by the world, travelling on a budget and making new friends wherever we go.

Our love of sharing unique experiences and wisdom from the road is what Lions Detour is all about.

The best doggo scratcher in the world.

Optimistic, Adventurous, Relaxed.

I love it because it’s when I feel the most freedom and the most alive.

Croatia! Followed closely by Romania


Christmas underpants from Budapest.

Vietnam or Madagascar.


The holiday *everything* taster.

Persistent, Caring, Nostalgic. 

It makes me fall in love with the world even more. 

I’d say France, but that’s also the country I had a chance to spend the most time in. 

Bit of both really! But the sea more.
