My name is Alejandro Turbay Noguera. I am a photographer and travel blogger who was born in Colombia,
raised in New York and shaped around the world.
In March 2015 I left with a one-way ticket to start the trip I had always dreamed of. A Round-the-World Trip!
I thought that if I was lucky the trip would last a year, but I was wrong. I learned to travel with a lot less than I expected and was able to make the first part of the trip last 4 years!
I spent this time exploring Asia (1.5 years), the Middle East (1 year) and East Africa (1.5 years), visiting 29 countries.
I like to travel slowly to get a feel for each place and I don’t plan in advance, just go where the wind takes me.I spent the last 18 months traveling the African Continent without using any flights. Down the East Coast from Egypt to South Africa. Soon I will return and go from South Africa to up to Morocco. On buses, trains, motorbikes, hitchhiking, bicycles, by foot, etc!
Here is a Press Release with a good description of most of the trip:

I am an optimist and full-time lover of life. I would like to see and experience as much of the world as possible. Meet as many people from all over and spread hugs, smiles and good energy. And hopefully help others along the way.
I used to be a sustainability consultant, but now I work as a travel blogger, freelance marketing consultant and translator (for Spanish and English language texts). I also stop and work at a guesthouses or as a teacher (Spanish, English, Salsa, etc) to help pay for my trip. I absolutely love traveling and have wanted to take an extended trip for a long time. It’s been a dream of mine, and now I’m living it. I want to share my travels and what I see and learn with others and encourage as many people as possible to chase and live their dreams!
Thank you for being a part of the journey!
