Aldeia Hippie de Arembepe

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

My Nomadic Life: Parallel Universe

As my thirtieth birthday approaches, I find myself constantly thinking about time. I think about its role in our lives, how it influences our decisions and our actions; I think about how we try to manoeuvre it, wishing it to bend to our desires; I think about our perception of it when we look back,… Continue reading My Nomadic Life: Parallel Universe

Just a few metres away… Continue reading Nomadic Life: From the Amazon to the Atlantic

My Nomadic Life: Finding the Road from Manaus

For a few weeks now I'd been trying to write about Manaus, this strange, crazy, concrete jungle of a city which I can't quite figure out but have loved from the night I arrived. Located in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest, Manaus is home to 2.5 million people and spreads out over 11,000 km²… Continue reading My Nomadic Life: Finding the Road from Manaus

Pursuing Happiness

It surprises me when I hear people speak of happiness as an unachievable, ephemeral dream, when we can live it every day. Most people seem to be too blinded to notice, blinded by the goal of finding happiness, as if it was an object you could grasp with your hands.   People spend their lives… Continue reading Pursuing Happiness
