"Travelling - it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller"

Quote by Ibn Battuta

Most people love to travel. Traveling have become a way of life to many people who seem to live by the Augustinian saying: "The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page". But what makes a good journey?

Well, in our view, it should be something you would recommend to others. While we can recommend travels to very exotic destinations without going very far at all, we want to push travel a bit further as we think of "a journey". To us, what really matters, is to get away from the established routes and seek something that little bit more special and authentic. We are not talking about the ultimate expedition, but to move away from the familiar, out of the comfort zone, where everyday situations and events take on an exotic quality.

We therefore share the kind of journeys that we have been doing ourselves to some of the most rewarding and exciting destinations and regions of our planet.
