Hong Kong / Macau

Hong Kong / Macau

I arrived in Hong Kong on January 9th, with only one contact in my email saying that he would wait for me at the airport when he arrived. Five months and a dozen days have passed since then and… thanks hellish city of this and you took more than I ever thought. After a week,…

Japan

Japan

China was a big experience as a traveler in many ways, that I only understood when I got in Japan. Time and relaxation made me touch the moments I’ve had passed in that contrasted country (china). Japan was perfect to grab my soul and comfort again. Maybe too much. I left Shanghai sick of my…

New Zealand

New Zealand

“It’s a kind of trip through the movie ‘Lord of the Rings’!” …was the phrase I said the most when asked what New Zealand is like? Mountains and more mountains, cattle and more cattle, and people… nothing! Or almost nothing. This on the south island, because the north changes a bit – but not much….

Australia

Australia

The most extensive island in the world has become too little. The only two places I’ve been were Sydney and Melbourne. I confess that I was in a very saturated phase of the tour and in need of comfort. Maybe it was the big leap from an economic Asia, easy to travel and little confrontations,…

Angola

Angola

The drawings were made during the moments of rest or those spontaneous meetings. Unfortunately the Covid-19 appeared…

Malaysia

Malaysia

The bus was about to leave in less than 5 minutes from Singapore to Malaysia and I was late. Very late. I run as fast as I could with my 28lt backpack, flip-flops and under the sweaty and sticky tropical weather. On my last turn to the road, I can still see the bus at…

Chile

Chile

Of the seven countries we visited in Latin America, Chile was the least Latin of all. But that doesn’t mean we haven’t stopped seeing the Chilean passion for soccer and listening to reggaeton everywhere. It continued to exist, but with moderation. It was also the country where there were rules for everything, so it was…

Bolivia

Bolivia

Traveling in Bolivia was one of the best adventures we did (me and Anisa) on bicycle. What we most save are the extensive deserts, above 4000m in altitude, with warm colors and a climate that could have the four seasons in one day. A country that holds the deepest South American culture, could only be…
