Routes and restaurants to enjoy your trip more than ever

In a local bus going from Arusha to Nairobi, Kenya’s capital.

Africa's skin

Arusha is a small town in the north of Tanzania, a point of departure for all safaris heading to Manyara Lake, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarnagire Park, and a haven for tsetse flies. A couple of these bit Belén, and maybe it’s a coincidence, but she spent the whole day sleeping. From Arusha you can also easily cross the border into Kenya for 35 bucks, the price of the luxury bus that takes you to Nairobi in seven hours. The luxury part is only the price the few whites pay to travel. The rest of the passengers are locals who don’t even pay a tenth of what we had to spend.

Amboseli, Kenya

We are not going to lie, the world is not wonderful. It has amazing places and nice people, but not everything looks like the rainbow. There are places where kids run after you for hundreds of meters to get an empty bottle of water. There are places where people fill the streets waiting for a job that will never come. There are places where shit up piles in every corner and nobody moves a finger to clean it. During this trip around the world, we have visited places that we never imagined, but we also had to escape from places that we would have never wanted to visit.

Holbox, Mexico

Many times we have been asked about the best thing about this trip and we never hesitated with the answer. As impressive as the monuments we visited, or beautiful the landscapes have been, the best moment every day was around seven, when we were looking for a nice place to have a cold beer. After spending the whole day in a safari in Africa, swallowing dust in the Jordanian deserts, or avoiding crocodiles in Australia, we can assure you that there is nothing like sitting in a terrace and finish up the day there.

Kings Canyon, Australia

Like any other title, this one, “the travelled” might sound pretentious, but nothing like that. Between traveller and travelled there’s the same difference that we find between cook and cooked. While the former has the upper hand, the latter has the situation out of hand. A traveller is the one who travels; a travelled is the one who has received bumps while travelling. We, after three months, weather we like it or no, have earned the “travelled diploma”. The same time it took us to learn what you cannot find in any guide and nobody will tell you:

Easter Island, Chile

People don’t ask us about our luggage anymore, but about what countries we recommend them to visit. That is very understandable, because for a regular person it is possible to take 10 to 20 trips like this one in a life time, so they’d better choose the right place from that long list of desired places to go. At www.way-away.com you will find our Trip Advisor. According to the days that you have, the time of the year you want to travel, your budget and your interests, we find the country suits your preferences.

Sossusvlei, Namibia

From the moment we said that we were going to travel around the World, people asked us all kinds of questions. Funny that the most extravagant, is also the most frequent. What do you pack when you travel for a year? It’s the million euro question. We are going to give you the answer. The important thing it’s not what you are going to put on, but what you are going to take off. We have already sent home 20 kilos, and counting.

Pingyao, China, medieval city.

Bazaar, Shanghai, China

We have been just in three or four countries and we have been mistaken by tourists from different countries: Irish, German, Italian, but most of all by pariahs. And I can understand that we don’t look like the brightest, but if they have tried to still our wallets one day after the other, from the right and the left, what do they do to the typical retired American couple, or the people who are not used to travel? Who knows! Maybe the former, looking naïve, are the kings of leaving the restaurants without paying, and the latter don’t have any doubts to pick a taxi driver’s butt if they are trying to cheat.

Africa, after being on a safari in 5 different countries.

Elephants, Serengeti, Tanzania

Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania:

One of the most beautiful places we have ever seen. It is like an illusion with 600 metres walls forming a natural fence in which thousands of animals live as if it were a dream. It is the main reason to go there. We could also see there a black rhinoceros, not usual at all.

Etosha Park, Namibia

Kruger Park, South Africa:

It is the easiest to visit but the least authentic. It is a “do it yourself” safari, driving through set tracks but you cannot even open the windows. At night, you will sleep in modest bungalows with the grill on the backyard as if they were semidetached houses. It is easy to see all kinds of animals except for lions and cheetahs. There are not many. Before going photo-hunting, you can look at he camp map where you can see where the animals where seen the day before, but many times it’s the same.

Amboseli, Kenya

Buffalos:
Buffalo, Masai Mara, Kenya
Bulls with a wig. In spite of the western movies, when they are with their herd, they are not violent at all, even though they look like beasts. However, when they are on their own and they get in trouble, they run away devastating everything on their way. Actually, with the elephants, they are the animals that cause more accidents with humans. When they attack they pretend to be still, getting closer to the enemy so stealthily, that they seem to be walking with socks on.
