About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Globetrotters

ABOUT ME

We're a funny and smiley couples with a huge will of wandering around the world.
After travelling during 7 months through Mexico and Central America we decided to fly to Chile where we found a job inside Torres del Paine National Park.
Now from South to North we're gonna walk along the whole Cordillera reaching Ecuador and its marvellous Galapagos Islands!

PHILOSOPHY

Travelling with organized trips is not a way for travelling!!! Travelling involves meetings with local people, means mixing with their cultures and languages and habits, means falling deeply into whichever country's nature!
