About this trip:
In March 2015 I left with a one-way ticket to start the trip I had always dreamed of. I haven’t gone back home since then and have spent this time exploring Asia, the Middle East and now Africa.

Currently I’m traveling Africa without using any flights. Down the East Coast of Africa to Cape Town (last time I took a flight was in Lebanon) and if possible up the West Coast all the way 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:

Bio:

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.

I used to be a sustainability consultant, but now I work as a travel blogger and translator (for Spanish and English language texts), and I stop and work at a guesthouse 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, and want to share the trip with others and encourage as many people as possible to chase and live their dreams! Thank you for sharing this trip with me!

  5. Great adventure !! You motivated me to persue such an adventure .. tell us how can someone start such a journey? What is needed? Visas? Money? Tips and Tactics?

    • Hi Kinty, very happy to hear I motivated you! It all starts with the decision to go for it, but of course you should research online there are several YouTube videos and explanations, tips…As for money of course if you have savings, learn to travel with less money, and can find work while you travel it is a great advantage!
