I am a passionate traveler. My dream as a child was to learn to speak all the languages of the world. I did not succeed but I have traveled to many different places on all continents. I especially loved Colombia, India, Niger and Italy. Now I am developing My Green Trip and trying my best to contribute to making our planet a clean place.
It is the possibility to have nothing planned on my agenda that I like the most. When I was traveling for 8 months through South America some years ago, the thing that I enjoyed the most was the freedom to go anywhere, do whatever I wanted, and to decide this mostly in the moment. No schedule! It felt so nice to wake up in the morning and just ask myself: do I stay in this city today? Do I leave to another place? Should I go hiking? Read? Visit a place? Here is a summary of my most favourite travel anecdotes: http://nicointhepampa.unblog.fr/
The basics I carry around are a gourd, a portative metal knife, fork and spoon, metal straws and a refillable coffee mug. Now that I have a baby boy, it is a new challenge. We haven’t yet gone backpack traveling with him but i am sure we will soon need more gear to carry all of his stuff.
The list is quite long for me. I have met a lot of clean-up associations and you can even find our selection on a map we started here http://mygreentrip.com/friendsandfamily/. Some of my favourite projects are actually our partners : Mauritius Conscious, Aloha Surf Fuerteventura, Natural Hvar Tours … They all include protection of their environment in their day-to-day activities. I like win-win situations 🙂
The places which amazed me the most were Patagonia and the north of Argentina, Chile and South Bolivia. Patagonia was a (positive) shocking impression of the power and beauty of nature. In one single day, I remember having felt the 4 seasons. I also really enjoyed the Parque El Chaltén, beautiful and amazing. Also the north of Argentina, Chile and South Bolivia which is a kind of triangle where you find lunar sceneries, red lakes, grey mountains, salt deserts. Amazing spots.
