Finally time to enjoy the crystal clear waters and natural Thai beauties. Bangkok is a city that offers many options, but the chaotic transit and excessive pollution, makes an exit to the coast necessary. With Christmas (which is not celebrated here, because of its Buddhist majority) came the perfect opportunity. At a good price, it…

The year began in Da Nang, Vietnam, in a slightly different way than usual. After studying for a semester in South Korea, it was time to explore new locations, and Southeast Asia was the chosen one.

Friendship

Friend. Noun. A person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard, who gives assistance, and is on good terms with another. Someone who is not hostile.

How I hate to receive guests!

The year was 2013. Unhappy with the direction my career was taking, I decided to stop complaining and take action. What no one expected or wanted to believe was that this would implicate in a drastic change. From the comfort and convenience of a steady job in Brazil to the bustling Indian streets. Vaccination, visa,…

Christmas. Apart of my childhood, before my cousin had not yet destroyed the image of Santa Claus from my imaginary, I never gave much importance to that occasion. At least not to the gift exchanges. I must say that I miss the huge meals, the family reunion, the special tv programs, the old routine. When…

Malakas in Athens

It was not a simple Saturday. It was a Saturday of classes. From early in the morning with the butt on a chair, listening to a professor vociferating Marketing concepts. The mood and the concentration were not the greatest. A look at travel websites would keep me awake for a little longer, and that’s how…
