Desert calling: Tangier to Merzouga, via Fes

Desert calling: Tangier to Merzouga, via Fes
We met Africa at dusk, dazed. Tangier at night, breezy. Fes in mid-day heat. Then cooled off with rain between the dunes of Sahara right after sunset. After a day of getting ever closer to Africa, we finally crossed the Straight of Gibraltar to Morocco. Once in Tangier, we wandered at night through the alleys of the medina in the footsteps of the Only Lovers Left Alive movie characters while spotting out the oddities and the ... [read more]

Hot Sevilla. And other Spain bits.

Hot Sevilla. And other Spain bits.
How does one prepare for a 10-day-mid-August trip through hot Morocco? Adjusting to the heat to follow by sunbathing on the streets of Sevilla might help, and that we did. Having left Lisbon late afternoon, we made camp on the banks of Guadiana river before sunset. Next morning we waved off Portugal after the village of Barrancos and made our way to Sevilla after checking out the view over the Aracena castle. Once in Sevilla, we ... [read more]

Just strolling: from Berlin to Prague, via Dresden – 320 km (total: 2.860 km)

Just strolling: from Berlin to Prague, via Dresden – 320 km (total: 2.860 km)
22nd update on The World Photo Tour, just another walk-around-the-world challenge. This story begins in Berlin. With new boots – thanks to the guys in my hometown that donated, this is  how I used that money. And just some days left of seeing my parents, for they would’ve soon go back to their home. Funny word. And it’s funny when people ask me ‘Where do you live?’ and I reply ‘Now, here, on the road.’, but they insist – ‘Yeah, ... [read more]

Until next time, Germany! From Hamburg to Flensburg, via Kiel: 177 km (total: 1.592 km)
Been a long time since the previous World Photo Tour update and I am actually in Aalborg now, but here are the happenings from Hamburg to Flensburg, through Kiel, with the rest up until Aalborg to follow in a soon-to-be-published next article, so we’ll jump straight to it, ending the West-Germany chapter of my walk. By now you probably know the drill – inner thoughts first, stories and photos to go. So – a bit of myself on this ... [read more]

One month later. Thank you!

One month later. Thank you!
One month on The World Photo Tour. Best to read while playing the song. Here’s to all of you helping, here’s to all of you trusting, here’s to all of you hoping, here’s to all of you who made this first month of  The World Photo Tour possible, for without you, nothing would’ve been the same. And it’s been good so far. First of all, I thank my parents. I can’t even imagine the amount of stress I’m causing them, I don’t even dare ... [read more]

Milton Keynes – Luton – London: 85 km (total: 381 km)

Milton Keynes – Luton – London: 85 km (total: 381 km)
The World Photo Tour just entered London. But until discovering this overspilling melting pot of life, culture and cultures, my road to England’s capital started in Milton Keynes. I have never been outside Romania until the age of 25. Well, except for a Metallica concert in Sofia (Bulgaria), but that was only for two days. When I moved to England, in Harrogate, as I was driving through from Dover towards the M1, London struck me ... [read more]
