Toronto, our first destination country, even if it was for one night.

Holidays in Portugal

Food, sweets, cold, family, friends, book, exhibitions, talks, sketching workshops, media... Yes coming back to Portugal has been amazing but busy!

2 weeks in Jakarta

Jakarta from a 2 weeks experience after living in Bali for 7 months is quite tough. Think and read twice before you choose to visit or live in this city.

After 4 years, 8 months, 14 days on the road, tomorrow I’m heading to Portugal for Christmas!

Tomorrow starts on of the most exciting travels of my life. My backpacks are not done yet but thats peanuts. The big news is I don’t need a visa for my next destination!

Should we travel and accept every rule with a smile on a face?

Every time we travel our rules are tested in many ways. Some are easy to understand, others are deeply hidden in the country culture.

The last 5 days after I told you about my settling life in Bali.

From settling in Bali to an unpredictable journey of the unknown. That's how things change when you travel with a open mind!

From a traveler life to a settled life in Bali

It has been a long time that I don't share much with you. This time, I talk about my life and what is the future for the World Sketching Tour.

The Struggle is the search. How to let go off what we feel?

The struggle of keeping running to another places, is a common stage on any long therm lonely traveller but how to to live with that?

Another you

Traveling made me selective. Made be appreciate this little moments. Made me tolerant. Made me feel without a reason and made me hear goodbye for a reason.

Who am I in this world?

We all have our destinations and something special to do in this world. And recently my stranger's friends called me "idealistic".


Without even noticing, we quickly get used to comfort and to anything that won’t require much work. Specially if we’re within what I call a system.


The one who never dared to follow an impossible path, will never feel the difference of having done it.

One week to go!

It's being a long time that I don't write anything in english.
