Trans Asia Express

The closer we get to the border, the more the whispers of the past few weeks turn into deaf screams that resound inside our bodies, from the heart up to the ears and down to the stomach.

A home away from home

Since we are already used to the hustle and bustle of the big cities and to the constant busting around with a backpack while traveling, the first few days in Arslanbob have been a severe emotional challenge. While we are getting used to the climate, to the food and above all, to the village’s pace …

Learning in Arslanbob

Arslanbob has welcomed us with an exotic demonstration of local traditions and customs, but we are also here to provide some help to the village that will be hosting us over the coming weeks.

Istanbul, the city swarming with people

No matter whether you are a tourist or a traveler, once you leave your house to start exploring the world, transport and accommodation become the two items that devour the main part of your budget. Moreover, the way you move and the places you sleep in, not only define the money you spend, but also …

Bulgaria / България

Between Madrid and Sofia there are approximately 2250 kilometers in a straight line. Both capitals are connected by several commercial flights that take less than three hours to cover this distance. However, we choose to travel from Spain to Bulgaria by bus, a route of 3200 kilometers, 50 hours and 7 countries that Spaniards don´t …
