Frustrated with the term "smart city" being used as a buzzword without actually meaning anything, two French graduates set off to seven cities across the world to discover how cities really use technology to improve our lives.

Benoît Gufflet, 26, and Dimitri Kremp, 24, met three and a half years ago while studying for their masters’ degrees in Paris.

After graduating, they left the French capital and set off with their backpacks in January 2020, travelling to Rio de Janeiro, Medellin, Toronto and Singapore. The COVID-19 pandemic put a temporary pause on their plans, however, but in May 2020, they resumed their trip and continued on to Helsinki, Stockholm and Tallinn.
