“What's your road, man? - holyboy road, madman road, rainbow road, guppy road, any road. It's an anywhere road for anybody anyhow.”

— Jack Kerouac *


Since my first international backpacking trip in 2013 to Peru, which was a blog on economic tourism and fast travel, it has become a small personal odyssey of exploration, discoveries and transformations.

We are a family owned and operated business.

My trips are usually quick, usually taken on vacation (no, incredibly I still don't make a living traveling), so you may not find in the reports in this section detailed itineraries that are common in so many excellent travel blogs, guides and books. That is not the goal.

We are a family owned and operated business.

But after a few years on the road (and airports, railways, ports, etc.), I believe that through these brief experiences, readers will be able to get a sense of the resources needed to travel economically and how pleasurable it is to get to know a good part of cities on foot.

We are a family owned and operated business.

Although I usually travel accompanied, the reports here express my opinion about the facts that happened on the road solely and exclusively. The photos, on the other hand, are a mixture of those taken by me and those taken by my traveling companions (no process, huh, guys!)

We are a family owned and operated business.

At first glance it may not seem like it, but traveling is also an undertaking. And any self-respecting enterprise needs adequate planning, budget and security measures, correct? In this planning process, it is common for the Administrator in me to take control of the situation, which ends up generating countless spreadsheets, files and endless notes. The reports, photos and videos that result from it are the notes that I would like to keep for posterity.

As much as the experiences found here may contain valuable information for those who travel, there are no great pretensions (the “super” wanderer who writes you backpacks and “super” economic trips…), it is just a way of recording unique experiences and killing the longing after a while.

And as much as some stories may seem inspiring, my dear, when you are out there, "on the road" do not forget that you must bring back your own scripts, built in the course of your own paths and experiences.


The contact with other countries and their cultures, climates, currencies, gastronomies and different languages ​​gradually changed not only my worldview, but my own lifestyle. After visiting a good part of the South American countries, in 2016 a post-Olympic backpacking trip took me to Europe and North Africa for the first time.

In 2019, life took me back to Lisbon and the city ended up winning another carioca as an official inhabitant. The Portuguese capital has become the new scenario of a phase still unprecedented for me: that of the expatriate traveler!
