My Summer Travel Plans

I can’t believe summer is already quickly approaching. It almost feels like the year has just started — we left for our three-month trip in Southeast Asia in late January and only just got back to Spain in early May. So it feels almost as if we missed most of spring. I guess what they […]

Merry Christmas from WildJunket!

Ho ho ho! It’s my favorite time of the year again. MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone! I’ve always loved Christmas and have made it a point to celebrate it in places full of festive atmosphere. Like in 2003 when I spent it in New York with my close friends; in 2005 when I celebrated with Alberto and […]

A Winter to Remember

Oslo Norway

It’s been a wonderful winter and definitely one of the best in my life. As I think back on the past month or so, I’m feeling a tad nostalgic, and I wish the holiday season wasn’t over just yet. We got to spend a lot of time with my family and also show Kaleya some of […]

My 2016 Travel Plans and Goals


I can’t quite believe 2016 is here already. 2015 was a great year, marked by a major milestone (with the arrival of Baby Kaleya) and packed with lots of challenges, adventures, tears and laughter. All in all, it was one of the best years of my life in terms of personal growth. However, travel had to take […]

On the Road Again — My Upcoming Travel Plans

Biking in Riga

9 months. I can’t believe it’s been nine whole months since I last traveled out of Spain. It feels like an eternity for a full-time traveler. It was definitely great to spend time at home with Baby Kaleya and getting adjusted to this new change in life, but I’m now ready to get back on […]

Updates from Sri Lanka — A Week of Learning and Discovering

Sigiriya Rock from Wikipedia

Ayubowan from Sri Lanka! I’m currently writing to you from Colombo, the country’s biggest city. It’s exciting to be in this part of the world, with the tropical humid air greeting me upon landing and a subtle hint of chaos buzzing from the streets. I’ve only been here for a day, but Colombo has already surprised me […]

The Camino Diaries: Reaching our Destination, Santiago de Compostela!


The final walk from Pedrouzo into Santiago de Compostela was possibly the hardest one we did. Walking at night was plenty of fun at first as we weaved through forests with our head torch and giggled in the darkness, but eventually our lack of sleep (and therefore energy) caught up on us and it was such […]

The Camino Diaries: The Final Stretch


Tonight we will begin our last hike to Santiago de Compostela – the destination for most Camino pilgrims. Many people have recommended us do a night hike for a different experience (and to avoid the crowd and heat), so we’ve decided to do this last leg of the Camino at night to end with a […]

The Camino Diaries: Highs and Lows


Over the past few days, I’ve experienced what has been perhaps the most intense moments of high and low within such a short time frame. After having tendinitis on my second day on the Camino, I fortunately made it back on the trail the next day. From Low to High That day turned out to […]

The Camino Diaries: Getting Injured on Day Two


It’s only day two of our Camino walk and I’m already injured. Sigh. My left knee started aching terribly just when we were three-quarters through today’s hike and the pain just got worse and worse as I continued limping on the trail. I had to give up almost towards the end of today’s trek and […]

The Camino Diaries: Day One Updates


The sky was tinged with purple streaks and the clouds were hanging low when we set off for our Camino pilgrimage this morning. It was barely dawn but we knew we needed an early start before the summer heat set in. Just as the doors of the albergue opened, we took our first step onto […]

From the Coast to the Alps: A Glimpse of New Zealand’s South Island


Flushed with vast plains, towering mountains and dramatic beaches, New Zealand’s South Island is teeming with pristine wilderness and alpine beauty that few other countries can rival. Over the past two weeks, I traveled all over the South Island with G Adventures and was just blown away by how rugged and remote everything was in […]

New Zealand Road Trip: Exploring the North Island

Day one of #NZ roadtrip with @gadventures and we

Over the past two weeks, I’ve been traversing the North Island of New Zealand with my main partner G Adventures. The landscapes have been stunning: rolling green hills, herds of sheeps and snow-peaked mountains sprawl across the country, with huge swells and black volcanic beaches on the west coast and calm clear bays on the east.
