Welcome to my little Travel Scrapbook about slow and eco-friendly traveling! All of my (mostly outdoor) adventures are packed in short travel stories in English & Spanish. 

 

I'm the happiest when on a hiking trail, cycling path or a sailing boat... Positive side effects of this kind of travelling are mindfulness and time to interact with foreign cultures. That's why many of my posts focus on the intercultural aspect of traveling. Most of those articles can be found in "Travel Reflections".

 

Oh, did I introduce myself? I am Pauline from Luxembourg - Paulina for the Spanish - and a passionate travellette currently re-settling down in my native country... after an expedition of a lifetime: Boat HitchHiking over the Atlantic Ocean!

 

Here your can read more about my quest for the unknown and why I actually write in Spanish and English! My Travel Scrapbook brings you the hidden gems straight from the travel road!

 

I invite you to lean back and Discover, Learn & Embrace the Unknown!

 Let's hit the road together! - ¡Vámonos de viaje!


To be on the road is about...

Experiencing the unexpected.

Spotting the hidden gems.

Letting go & getting lost.

 

And it's about finding yourself at the end of the road.

It’s now almost one year that we visited Cape Verde and stayed on the archipelago during more than 1 month. In the context of our boat hitchhiking adventure, we sailed from Tenerife, via La Gomera, to Cape Verde where we were looking for our next boat to cross the Atlantic.

 

As things didn’t go as quick and smoothly as originally planned, my partner and I had plenty of time to discover this rather not so known travel destination. There’s always something good even if things don’t go as originally planned. This long stay on the Capeverdean archipelago allowed me to create a lot of content on traveling to Cape Verde and to develop my love for the criollo culture. One of the most frequent questions I get from my readers is what is the best place to stay in Cape Verde? What is the best island for holidays and tourism in Cape Verde?

 

Well, here it goes: The Ultimate Guide on Where to Stay on Cape Verde, one of most vibrant destinations I’ve visited so far.

Mientras estoy escribiendo este artículo, ya estoy de en casa a Luxemburgo. Acabo de volver de una inmersión cultural intensiva en un país sobre el que no sabía casi nada. Me fui con solo unos pocos fragmentos de información sobre su pasado tumultuoso: Kosovo.

 

Aunque esta vez no pude seguir mi principio de viajar lento, puedo afirmar que aproveché al máximo. 3 ciudades que comienzan con P (Pristina, Prizren y Peja) en 3 días, 6 horas de transporte público, muchas cervezas con kosovares, unas de las personas más cordiales y generosas que conocí en mucho tiempo.
