I had the chance to participate in a beautiful environmental project called Enviajarme. Josue (the founder) is a young man, passionate about nature and with an incredible vision to make this world a better place. I was amazed to watched how more than 100 people gathered together to walk in a beautiful mountain and clean all the way up to the top.
I came back to my tico paradise following my heart after spending a lot of months outside and literally going around the world. Returning was a strong learning process, just like traveling. Returning to what I considered my home challenged me, taught me that I have fears that I didn't know existed, that I have too many things to work on and improve
Bergen is a city known all over the world not only for its breathtaking beauty but also for its musical scene, specifically about a type of extreme metal music called black metal. Many of the most representative bands of this genre are from Bergen: Burzum, Immortal and Gorgoroth just to mention a few ones.
In search of warmer lands we went to Seville, historic capital of Andalusia, and without planning it the first thing we heard at the airport was that we arrived just for the last three days of the April fair.
Traveling to Iceland was my dream for 4 years. I wanted to feel as one in those incredible landscapes, to see the northern lights shining in the sky, to be amazed by the power of nature because I knew that the climate there was totally unpredictable.
Huacachina is a small oasis in the middle of the desert: it has a lagoon surrounded by palm trees, eucalyptus, among others, food, small stores and lodging for those who want to spend the night in the middle of that paradise.
Moving away from home was the first step and it began at the end of February 2018. The fear of the unknown soon appeared. I think of all the memories and things I lived in the space that I called home for so many years and I feel a melancholic.
Huaraz is a city in Ancash. It’s 3052 meters above sea level and a place I recommend spending at least a week: two or three days to acclimatize without doing demanding activities and the rest to venture in the beauty of nature. In the search for attractions (I love mountains and hiking)), I found a small company that offered tours at a good price (you will realize that Peru is a very cheap country, at least much cheaper than Costa Rica and for some activities, a guide is a must).
The impressive dunes, textures of sand and colorful sunsets painting the sky, the snow on the mountains taking over of the landscape and the clouds so close to the earth creating a sense of unreality. I must admit that Peru was never on my bucket list but I fell so in love, that after two years of my first visit, I returned.
