Camino de Santiago And The Priest Cannot Find The Stamp!

My daughter and I were pilgrims recently on the Camino de Santiago. Typically, pilgrims have a pilgrim’s passport that is stamped at each stop to prove that you did indeed walk to Santiago de Compostela, the object of the pilgrimage. My daughter and I went to a pilgrims’ Mass in Los Arcos, one of the tiny villages. At the end of the Mass, I asked her to see if the priest would stamp our passport. And the priest was funny! He told her that when there are more pilgrims coming through, say, in June and July, he kept the stamp

Coffee Experience With A Cute Sense Of Humor

My days must be started with a cup of coffee. Otherwise, it might be a total mistake and I would feel very depresso for the whole day. As a coffee addict, wherever I go and travel I would love to taste local coffee and it has become one of my obsessions, to taste different coffee from around the world, enjoying the aroma, acidity, flavor and the packaging. Yes, I mean I love the way they serve the coffee. Some places have a uniqueness and brilliant way on their coffee culture. One day in Krabi, Thailand,- while waiting for the rain

Machu Picchu’s Gigantic Aura – Reminder Why I Travel

On day three of the classic Inka Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru, we reached the summit of Abra de Runkuracay eager to take in the views around us. The day was unusually warm; wispy white clouds rolled in and out of the deep green valleys, aided by a gentle breeze. We scuttled up to the highest point we could find. Even though the clouds obstructed much of the view, I could feel the enormity of the valley we were perched above. I searched for snowy peaks in the distance, searched for the river far below. In that moment, I

Sandboarding at 65k through Namibia’s Dunes

We left Swakopmund, Namibia early in the morning and drove out to the dunes with the sand boards. It was a difficult trudge to the top and I gulped when I got there and looked down the slope we would be using. Too late to wimp out, though. I smeared the bottom of the board with wax, clipped in my boots and performed the backwards somersault they had shown us how to do to get started. Then I was up on my feet and scudding diagonally across the dune, balancing better than I imagined, and picking up more speed than

Don't make Elephants angry - my elephant experience in Botswana

Don’t make Elephants angry – my elephant experience in Botswana

When I visited Botswana in hope to get close and personal with Elephants, I certainly got my wish. I remember it clearly – we were sat in the open-top jeep, observing quietly as the herd of Elephants trundled across the road ahead. All of a sudden a loud trumpeting sound came from behind us and we realized this angry, tusk-less mother was warning the others of our presence. In panicked haste, we sped off as she tried to catch us up until we were stopped dead in our tracks by the biggest bull Elephant I have ever seen. My friend,

Shooting Stars in Wadi Rum (pun intended)

Shooting Stars in Wadi Rum (pun intended)

Jordan is a strange country. There are big cities, forgotten majestic mausoleums, mountains and depressions, but most of all there are deserts. My boyfriend and I traveled around Jordan in August (not so hot as people said) and we lived for more than ten days in a Bedouin tent camp in Wadi Rum desert, southern Jordan. We put ourselves in some awkward situation with our guest Kaled, who is quite a notable person in Bedouins village, especially struggling to eat with a single hand and annoying him with our Italian chitchat, but he was so kind not to kick our

From Hell to Heli-pads

From monkeys climbing on my head to sleeping on train floors to cocktails on top of the world… Travelling gives you the greatest opportunities and the weirdest lessons, both teach you a lot about who you are (and what you can handle). One night it’s an overnight bus with jagged metal arm rests, A/C in your face and two Asians crammed on one seat watching you sleep and the next night you’re being taken for cocktails on a helicopter pad overlooking Kuala Lumpur. 12 hours can make a big difference. One night we were sleeping in a floating bamboo shack

Gambia and my favorite part of it: The Children!

“During my trip to Gambia I found a lot of beautiful beaches and landscapes, but my favorite thing about one of Africa’s smallest country is its people…specially the children! They love to ask you to teach them things and some of then even learned how to do the rock sign!“
