KlimaCamp - Experiencing an Ecological activist Camp in Germany and blocking a Coal mine: “System change not Climate change”

KlimaCamp - Experiencing an Ecological activist Camp in Germany and blocking a Coal mine: “System change not Climate change”

A yearly activist ecological camp, taking action against climate change, located in the region of Rhineland, not far from Cologne (Köln), North-East Germany. “System change not Climate change”, direct action for direct results, a chance to get involved away from the safety of a keyboard. This is what Klimacamp (Climate camp) represented for me in a nutshell. And all of that happened almost by chance! The camp took place just a few hundreds meters far away from an open cast coal (lignite) mine, this mining area bein ...

One of the 3 most neglected attractions around Rome: Villa Adriana in Tivoli

One of the 3 most neglected attractions around Rome: Villa Adriana in Tivoli

Every time I go back in Rome I end up visiting Tivoli and at least one of its three amazing attractions: Villa Adriana, Villa d'Este and Villa Gregoriana. A rural Roman complex, an impressive Renaissance Villa and a naturalistic park in the "Romantic style" with a tall waterfall and lush vegetation. Three not to be missed spots that would make Tivoli a must visit destination in any country, but not in Italy given the proximity to the more highlighted Rome. Can you imagine that the first two are even in the UNESCO h ...

Hiking to "Le Cirque de Gavarnie", top French Pyrenees attraction

Hiking to "Le Cirque de Gavarnie" is one of the best choices you can take while travelling in the Pyrenees! And the great thing is that it's a very easy and short hike on a wide trail, that can be done by everybody even kids.The Cirque de Gavarnie is a very steep semicircular rock formation, from where several waterfalls are descending to the ground. Just on top of the cliffs it's Spain, while on the bottom, where you are actually hiking, it's France! I arrived to Gavarnie by bicycle, since I was on a bike trip fr ...

Housesitting in the UK: our experience

With so many housesitting websites available to apply  for assignments, it's becoming confusing and expensive to keep track of all of them: in fact anglophones countries are notoriously the biggest markets for house sitting, with plenty of opportunities for their users, the housesitters. In the last years TrustedHouseSitters has become the predominant website around the world to look for an assignment, but unfortunately they are exploiting their supremacy privilege by charging what we believe to be an unfair a ...

Travel packing list and tips: what's in our backpacks?

An example of a travel packing list, with items selected from my popular guide. Are you about to start you trip and you want to make sure to pack everything you need and don't forget anything in your luggage? Then follow my advice, matured after 7 years of long-term travelling, and have a look inside my backpack at what I actually take during my trips!  If instead of a real example you prefer a complete travel packing list with any item you can think of, and not my personal selection, then have a look at my p ...

Kayak tour in Langkawi, discovering the mangroves and its fauna

What we remember the most of Langkawi is no doubts our kayaking trip in the Kilim Karst Geoforest Park, a nice breath of fresh air, after one month plagued by the haze in Malaysia obstructing our view and our lungs. While the visibility was still not perfect, it was still an enjoyable trip in between the mangrove forest.We were supported on this excursion by Junglewalla, o local company made of biologists rather than ordinary travel guides. After they picked us up around 10am, we were driven to Kubang Badak region, ...

Learning Ceramics and Pottery in Indonesia: my results

Learning Ceramics and Pottery in Indonesia: my results

Practicing ceramics in Indonesia for me was like entering in a deep state of meditation, almost like a trance. I would forget about everything around me and get extremely relaxed. I liked the feeling of having a project and then being able to realize it, and even the tactile sensation and smoothness itself of the clay. I haven't had the occasion to practice with ceramics and pottery anymore after Darmasiswa scholarship, but I would be really happy to experience more in the future. After having explained my frustr ...

Navagio beach in Greece: best free location to see the shipwreck in Zakynthos island

Navagio beach in Greece: best free location to see the shipwreck in Zakynthos island

You'll be impressed by the shipwreck in Navagio beach, its crystalline water and fine beaches, and Zakynthos island will be one of the highlights of your trip in Greece! Our suggestions will help you to get the most from your visit. We are not sure why so much accent it's put on the shipwreck, when all of the beauty of this stunning natural place is actually due to its incredible rock formation, the white sand beach and the crystal blue water. You might not believe it, but the colours of the photos are actually no ...

Travelling by ferry in Indonesia: our photo reportage from an overcrowded Pelni vessel

Travelling by ferry in Indonesia: our photo reportage from an overcrowded Pelni vessel

The idea of travelling by ferry in Indonesia can be frightening for first time visitors, given the high amount of accidents happening on Indonesian waters and news coverage. But the state owned company Pelni has revealed to be safe for the last 30 years or so, as we explained in our previous article about the safety of Indonesian ferries. Embarking on a long trip by ferry in Indonesia, means to be able to experience real life as locals do, what they eat, how they behave and socialise and much more. Still wondering ...

Our work exchange experience in the UK: plastering with clay a straw-bale roundhouse

After a couple of years of break from work exchanges, because of our 1 year scholarship in Indonesia and following trips, it was about time for us to start slowing down our traveling style and to learn new skills for our future projects.It was end of September. While being in Belgium, we took a bold decision and decided to turn West and chase the winds towards UK, instead of heading south for the milder upcoming Autumn and Winter seasons. We did that with one purpose in mind: to learn the skills on how to build our ...
