Yes! We admit it !!, we can't complain. Seeing the bleak pessimistic environment that surrounds us, colleagues emigrating to Canada, Algeria, Sweden, Germany ... and friends having a bad time, it is sometimes difficult to talk about travel and getaways, which nobody can ignore that entails an economic outlay to a greater or lesser extent.

The year has started bringing us An unforgettable start in the beautiful city of Prague and A getaway through the financial heart of Europe, Frankfurt, and the beautiful population of Heidelberg, among other personal experiences. However, one thing does not take away the other, and we will not stop helping friends or supporting the family whenever we can as we are doing so far.

Precisely because of all this, it is not time to stop dreaming about new adventures. And we talk about dreams and adventures, because we believe that the time has come to put those rarely attainable dreams among the short-term goals that little by little we have been fulfilling ...

It was in the trip to Jordan 2006 when we met the first, after several years without traveling, when we would put the first grain of sand and get to see the first rays of sun over the incredible pink city of Petra after penetrating through those spectacular gorges. It was a shocking moment, which marked our next trips ...


... and it wouldn't be long after, in the trip to Burma 2006, when time would stop again in our lives and enjoy again one of those moments that memory remembers with an image, that of the life of the U Bein de Amarapura bridge in one of the most beautiful sunsets ever lived.


Possibly years later, during our trip to Cuba 2008, don't stop time, but in Cayo Largo our eyes would enjoy a spectacle of colors of blues of all shades In a privileged place on the planet.


But if it's about adventure, it would be in Lillo where we discovered true sex with the Gods, an experience that would separate our feet from the ground to float for a few minutes. Adrenaline goes off to unsuspected limits. Freedom, renewal of the soul, a unique, indescribable sensation, never lived before.


One of the most spiritual aspects felt would be experienced during the trip to Japan 2008, when Overnight on the magical island of Miyajima, the night fell on us, the icon of the floating red tori already without tourists back to the continent, and a feeling of intense inner peace rarely enjoyed before under a starlit sky.


One of the great discoveries (and moments) was the sensation lived in the trip to Syria, Lebanon and Jordan 2009. Returning from the Mesopotamian lands of the Euphrates Valley on the way to Aleppo we would run into Rasafa, a true ghost town in the middle of an immense desert, where tourism does not arrive, and that hid some true galleries in its pits. One of the best adventures that would breathe into our lives those moments lived by those great archaeologists of yesteryear.


Throughout 2010 we live one of the deepest personal changes of a life, and with it lin need of embarking on a greater adventure. A backpack, a lost town of Uruguay and a few days in South America, would be the prelude to that expeditionary ship that would take us to step on the Antarctic lands separated by 2 and a half days of navigation through the most fearsome seas on the planet, so far from the world of men, where the feeling of infinite loneliness and inhospitable beauty we still keep in our heart since the trip to Argentina, Uruguay and Antarctica 2009.


Nor will we deny that the days of "rediscovery" of Machu Pichu, especially since the dangerous climb to Hyuana Pichu, would involve the fulfillment of another of those destinations dreamed in childhood and that we managed to fulfill during the trip to Peru 2010.


And if the little dreams of reaching Petra, Machu Pichu, the Antarctic lands, spiritual moments, floating in the air or getting lost in a ghost town, once fulfilled, seemed insurmountable, it was during our trip to Maldives 2011 when we discover that it is possible to reach those almost deserted islands many times imagined, where one can escape from the world around us for a few days.


But boy's dreams are endless, and the biggest adventure to date, would arrive during our trip to Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and RDCongo 2011, when a fearful incursion into a complicated country and a 5-hour climb up a steep slope would leave us the best night lived to date next to a true caldera from hell, one of the most spectacular lava lakes on the planet at Nyiragongo volcano.


Knowing places on the planet is something that we carry in the harmless virus that was implanted at a certain moment in our life, but fulfilling dreams and embarking on adventures is something that has already become a necessity.

It is time to do it and we have already decided. TODAY life asks us again for a next great adventure and we are already embarked on it ... We do not even know where to start to be able to fulfill it although there are two people, a map, a website and a book, who are our source of inspiration and they already know it. In addition there is something that we already discovered earlier and that is, WHEN A DREAM IS PERSISTALLY INSISTED, IT ALWAYS COMES TO COMPLY ...


Paula and Isaac, dreaming of new adventures ...
