10 days in Uruguay

10 days in Uruguay

After spending one month in Buenos Aires I left Argentina to explore the neighbor country of Uruguay. A tick, penetrating rain accompanied me all the way to BA’s ferry terminal, clogging the streets of the metropolis and trapping the bus in an endless succession of starts and stops. I arrived just 5 minutes before the departure of […]

One month in Buenos Aires

One month in Buenos Aires

This year I escaped the Dutch winter, taking advantage of my digital nomad status, moving to Buenos Aires, – a city I was curious about for a long time. I spent a total of two months in Argentina, the first in the capital and the second traveling around as it would have been a pity non to use the opportunity to see […]

Presenting at ‘Digital Nomads in Buenos Aires’

Presenting at ‘Digital Nomads in Buenos Aires’

We all know that strange things happen while traveling, but I really didn’t expect that during my month in Buenos Aires I would gave a public speech in an event about digital nomadism. Digital nomad is the cool name for people that have a location independent job that they can perform online. It’s a recent and growing […]

My 2014 in 11 numbers

My 2014 in 11 numbers

I tried to summarize this year in 14 pictures, but I could not select so few of them. For as much as I watched and re-watched them, I ended up with 68 pictures and taking any of them away would have left me with a bad feeling. So I decided to summarize the 2014 with […]

More than 2.000 Buddhist temples are still in the valley of Bagan, out of the original 10.000 built between 11th and 13th centuries when the Kingdom of Pagan was at its peak. We spent two days exploring the area with bicycles, including an half-day trip to Mount Popa. Mount Popa Mount Popa is a mountain with […]

Donating blood and fainting in Phnom Penh

Donating blood and fainting in Phnom Penh

What are the effects of our travels on the local populations? Is tourism bringing them business and the opportunity to improve their lives, or rather just another form of exploitation that takes dignity away? Let’s cut the chase: it was recommended by Lonely Planet. Page 75 of the Cambodia guide, there’s a callout inviting travelers to […]

First BlaBla(and no)Car experience

First BlaBla(and no)Car experience

I’ve be interested in BlaBlaCar for a while. I like the ‘new wave’ of sharing services that allow you to have a new experience, meet some folks and don’t pay a fortune. I used CouchSurfing, AirBnb, I picked up hitchhikers when I had a van and I could not wait to share a car with some […]

Balkan Tour Highlights

Balkan Tour Highlights

Last month, June 2014, I had chance to visit an area of Europe that is faraway, so close!  The mighty Balkan region is next to Italy but we (Italians) know very little about those countries. The communism and the war kept this region closed for long time and it’s still considered a war zone where all the bad […]
