As John Steinbeck said about his incurable urge to travel and to be someplace else, “once a bum, always a bum”, I feel the same: nothing thrills me more than the sound of an engine heading for a new destination.
We prefer departures to arrivals.
Trains to planes and cars to trains.
Forests and gardens to museums.
Mountains to beaches.
Active exploration to farniente.
Obscure corners to touristic venues.
Tents to all-inclusive hotels, although we don’t mind crashing in a 4 or 5 stars bed from time to time.
We prefer improvised serendipity to compulsive planning.
We also believe that the beauty of a place is given by the people who live there.
Started as a visual diary of a US road trip, On the Road is now a carnet de voyages on its own, a collection of impressions gathered during our travels around the world. A journey towards the essence of a place. Glimpses of the things and experiences that left their marks on us.
Meanwhile, you can follow our mountaineering adventures on Hauteurs.eu, a blog dedicated to alpine climbs.
