Round The World Trip

By Yifat & Andrey Shirben

About Us

Who are we? A good question, actually…

Well, officially we are Yifat & Andrey Shirben.
Unofficially, we like to travel and even more than this – we love all kind of exotic (and not so exotic) animals!
Every time we bump into any collection of animals – the amount of pictures we’re taking is raising exponentially…
Probably by following our blog you will (or already did) notice this somehow, so we’re a bit of photographers as well.

Our day jobs are quite diverse – we’re mainly dealing with various aspects of online marketing, especially from the monetization perspective, but it would include everything starting from PPC and SEO, through Media Buying, Social Media and Email Marketing, all the way to the Affiliate Marketing & high level Business Development. A great example of company where Andrey was quite intensively involved in the past 3 years and had the honor of being one of its first Angels (private investors) is Kenshoo.
Yifat, (after spending a hefty 3 and a half years in ICQ, where she’d managed their global media and dealing with International Biz. Dev later on) was working for the past 6-7 months on a very interesting project called Immersive Medical, which is the leading plastic surgery portal. A couple of months ago she also came up with this great idea for a new venture, which is still operating in stealth mode and will be announced during our trip somewhere around March.

Of course, we are also husband and wife (if you didn’t figure this out so far…) and after we’ve got married at 20.08.2009, we decided to go for a 1-2 months vacation in Australia & New Zealand, which eventually became an eight months (and this is just the beginning …) RTW journey. The rest you will be able to read in our blog.

  1. Hi Guys,
    You don’t know me, but I’m a friend of Kalia and Hagit Amir (I worked in ICQ too!) and saw that they joined your FB group, so I read about your journey.
    Well, I currently live in Melbourne, so if you want, I’d be happy to advise you about travelling in Victoria and Tasmania (I was there a couple of months ago). So feel free to contact me by email, and we’ll continue from there. In the meantime, have fun.
