The European spring already made the cities flourish, whether for the colorful plants or the heat of the people that returned to leave their homes in search of some Sunlight. They just forgot to tell this to Poland. The year was 2015, it was the end of March, and the impulse for new trips brought…

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…

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…

Berlin. Capital of Germany, but that does not seem to belong to this country. Cosmopolitan, tolerant, an intense mixture of races. Certain neighborhoods take you to Turkey.

Find a company, write a resume, write the motivation letter, but where is the motivation to work on something irrelevant?…

After some good years, I am grateful for the visit of Pedro and Gabriela, longtime friends, studies and nights in Curitiba, who along with Irem and a few doses of Mexicana (an alcoholic and spicy shot) made me enter the night of Berlin on a Thursday. The initial plan was to find someone to host…

Camping is wonderful. The contact with nature, freedom to do what you want, sleep when it gets dark, if time allows you to dazzle the stars, but there are some problems too. If it is too hot your tent becomes a sauna. If it rains, it turns a boat. If it’s cold, you can still…

With a comforted heart and renewed hopes, Simon and I left Bilbao. Large cities can offer several attractions, but also the difficulty of getting a ride inside it. Thinking about it and following the guidelines of hitchwiki.org again, we took a train and faced an empty village without a lot of traffic and the prospect of long…

Finally came the most feared part of the whole trip: Spain. Known for being so difficult in the art of offering rides and receiving people for free, I was willing to face that challenge. Jean-marc, my host in Bayonne, took me to the roundabout where the cars were supposed to pass to take the road,…
