Altitude Sickness, I hate you

I had read a lot about altitude sickness. I knew it would make me slower, that I would need to take it easy. I had carefully checked the altitude of all the cities I was going to visit and I… Continue reading →

Looking for Sloths: Where to Find the Slowest Animals

Sloths are funny. They are known to be incredibly slow and to live upside down on trees, hanging upside down only by their massive claws. There are two families: two-toed sloths (that have two digits) and three-toed sloths (that have three digits). All of them have three toes. Why are sloths so slow? They have a very low metabolism and also very low-temperature rates. So they move only when necessary and very slowly, at a speed of 4 meters… Continue reading →

Where to go in South America?

South America is huge. You would probably need months to visit a tiny part of it. This title is vague and slightly unsophisticated, but it answers the question I heard the most when I came back from my big trip in… Continue reading →

Why Panama is not being awesome to me

I smelled it already at the border. As the officer at the immigration was asking me what’s my job and how I can afford travelling long term, I already felt Panama was not going to be like Costa Rica. It… Continue reading →

Costa Rica in two weeks: this is where we have been

We spent 16 days in Costa Rica and we saw many stunning spots. We were supposed to only go to the Caribbean side, as it is the rainy season, but we decided to hit the Pacific as well and it… Continue reading →

Miami, Wynwood Walls and the beginning of our trip

We landed in Miami exactly 8 days ago, so it’s about time to make a summary of our first days in the American continent. Florida has been…hot. As we got to Miami it felt like we were in a oven!… Continue reading →

How to arrange a good safari in Africa without going broke

If you are a wildlife lover, at some point in your life you MUST go to Africa. As a paws’ pictures collector and an elephant dreamer I even waited too long to go, but I had a reason: going to Africa (except countries like Morocco or Egypt) is somewhat complicated and rather expensive. If you want to go on a Safari,… Continue reading →

A cool place I have seen: San Pedro de Atacama

The time I crossed the Cambodian border walking

A couple of years ago I was on holiday in Thailand when I decided to visit Cambodia. Angkor Wat had been on my to-see list for a while. Then a girl I met in Chiang Mai gave me this heart… Continue reading →

Carrilet Route might be the best cycling itinerary I have made since I live in Catalonia. There are many cycling options, as the whole area that goes from Barcelona up to Ripolles or Garrotxa offers several possible paths. Many of them are… Continue reading →
