In 2018, I ventured outside of Paris for the first time and visited two other major French cities for the day.
Walking into the small hippie village in Arembepe, located about 30 km north-east of Salvador de Bahia in northern Brazil, feels like going back in time. There are no roads, just sandy paths that get uncomfortably hot under the blazing sun; there's no electricity, so only the stars and the moon light the way at night;… Continue reading Aldeia Hippie de Arembepe

I visited the Wynwood Walls art district in July… Continue reading Florida: Wynwood Walls, Miami
Rio de Janeiro, the Wonderful City founded by the Portuguese in 1565 in Brazil's southern Atlantic coast, offers residents and visitors an eclectic mix of natural and urban environments, cultural events, historical architecture, and of course, samba.
As I sit here, looking out of my second-story window in Santa Marta, Colombia, I think about how it's already March and it's a bit late to be recapping the last year of My Nomadic Life in Brazil. But if you've followed my blog longer than a month, you know this is normal behaviour and… Continue reading Best of 2016 Travels / Lo Mejor de Viajes en 2016
