Welcome to La Havana, Cuba!

You need many hours to understand L’Habana and get used to it. The city is not chaotic, ma it has its own rules that look like non sense to the traveler who doesn’t know anything about it. First of all f them, the weird money issue, the CUC, also called Convertible pesos, that has the […]

Probably the best and most beautiful spot of the famous Riviera Maya of Mexico, Tulum is definitely a must when visiting the area.

Cenotes of Yucatan: live from the underworld

There is something magic when entering a real cenote, in a cave, in Yucatan. The impression you have is that it is pretty much how entering a parallel universe, an underworld that allows you to live the hot, humid and noisy world to step into the underground, into a cave opened on the top where […]

Mexico City, where to start?

Arriving in a megalopolis like Mexico City, the biggest city in the world, can be a real cultural and emotional shock. The 1st impression you may have is a feeling of lost. The city wraps you immediately in its craziness, in the noise of its exaggerated traffic, in its pollution, in its over inhabited streets, […]

Teotihuacan, a step closer to the Sun

Stepping up all its 248 steps to get to the top of the Pyramid of the Sun, the highest temple of Teotihuachan site, resembles Icaro’s long way towards the sky trying to touch the Sun. The Pyramid of the Sun, the third highest pyramid in the world after Cheope, in Egypt and Cholula, also in […]

A traveler’s mind

If you have ever met a traveller in your life, you know a traveler is a very weird animal. Travelers don’t see the world the way you use to do, they see the world like a huge adventure book where they create the story written in its page. Travelers think destiny is in their hand, […]

My 1st impressions of Myvatn

My first walk in Reykjalið, the place where I will be living for the next five months has been a very quiet one. As soon as you step out of the hotel you don´t hear anything at all, just the sound of a lonely car coming form far away, if it is coming. The landscape […]

Road trip across Iceland, Day 3, Seydisfjordur- Akureyri

That part of Iceland that goes from Seydisfjordur, in the far East, to Akureyri, in North Iceland, is certainly one of the most breathtaking scenery you can visit not only in Iceland, but in the world. Leaving Seydisfjordur on Route 93, connecting the tiny village to Egilstadir, the biggest town in the area, is a […]

Road trip across Iceland: Day 1, Reykjavik-Hofn

Definitely one of the richest itinerary to drive through in Iceland, the road from Reykjavik to Hofn can only astonish you if, combined with with the Golden Circle, is driven all in one day. So much to see, too much maybe to be handled in 12 hours drive, while dealing with a cold and windy […]

Unbelievable places: The Ice Cave of Iceland

It has been one of the most amazing experience of a lifetime: Ice caving in Iceland, under a glacier, under the same glacier last autumn I flew on to admire the volcano eruption.

My 1st winter in Iceland

  Most of the tourists who visit Iceland love to come here in summer, when days are longer, almost neverending, and temperatures are a bit milder than the rest of the year. However, I personally love Iceland in winter, despite the cold. Before moving I came 3 times here in winter. I always found Iceland […]
