The view from our window

A view of the Eiffel Tower? Of the ocean? Of the mountains? Nope. During our trip we tried to save money in every way we could, and many times the view from our room was a wall, or the neighbor’s rooftop. That when our room HAD windows! Even still, we took a picture of what […]

Tati’s Top 10 Experiences

Like Guto talked about in our last post, we don’t carry in our memory just the places we visited, but mostly the experiences we had. That’s what we usually remember and talk about whenever we are among friends or when someone asks about the trip. And that’s why we’re doing this list, so we can […]

Guto’s Top 10 Experiences

The question is usually inevitable: “Which was your favorite place?”. It’s common that people become curious about this when they hear we went around the globe. But it’s a tough question to answer. I could say that the best place on the planet are the beaches in Thailand. But then I remember about the beaches […]

The Cuban Fight

This face and fist are the reflection of our stay in Havana. The Cuban people are hard workers. Little more than a century ago, after 400 years of being under Spanish domain, they fought and reached a late independence at the cost of a lot of blood. Independent, they kept fighting to get rid of […]

Chicago, USA

In 2009, when we were on our interchange program in the United States, we tried visiting Chicago. We had already bought the guides, we had planned what we were going to do and everything. But it turned out we couldn’t go, because of an unfortunate turn of events. But what could we do, right? We […]

The place that is so different from everything else that, if it doesn’t happen there, it doesn’t happen anywhere. Beijing, the capital of all this craziness. Before going any further, it’s important to highlight […]

Bangkok, Thailand

“The city of angels, the great city, the residence of the Emerald Buddha, the impregnable city of God Indra, the grand capital of the world endowed with nine precious gems, the happy city, abounding in an enormous Royal Palace that resembles the heavenly abode where reigns the reincarnated god, a city given by Indra and […]

Rishikesh, India

Rishikesh, the yoga capital of the world. Became very popular around the 60’s, when The Beatles were here and, after a few weeks, came back to England with nothing less than the White Album. Who doesn’t want a catharsis like that, right? Since then, hordes of tourists came, and never stopped. Unfortunately. Today, almost 50 […]

Diwali, Festival of Lights

Diwali, Festival of Lights, is celebrated all over India on the first day of the Hindu month Kartika – what for us means a date between October and November (in 2013 was on 11/03). The motive is religious: they celebrate the victory of good above evil, and the candles and lights are there to enlighten […]

Delhi and Agra, India

We want to start this post by saying that nothing we write here can actually describe what India is really like, neither the impact it has on innocent tourists. We researched a lot about the country and the cultural shock it has on western visitors. We read about the scams, about the dirty roads, about […]
