PSYCHOTHERAPY IN NAMIBIA

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="2/3"][vc_column_text] Namibia is like that friend who you didn´t meet for a long time and who has the incredible ability to arrive without warning at the right moment to tell you in your face what you are becoming, whether you like it or not. We arrived to this country after almost 4 years traveling by motorcycle around the world and riding through it was like a therapy where we ended up learning more about ourselves than about Namibia. It’s recipe is very simple and begins as always, before putting the meat in the oven you have to make it soft and marinate it. The first thing that Namibia does when you cross its border is to make you feel useless because now you are not the one controlling the speed you move. Forget about going fast, you will cross the sandy routes in slow motion. Then after only a couple of very long days that end up with us very exhausted and looking for a place to camp in some of the creeks around the Orange River we begin to understand the true immensity of this country. Its size is equal to that of Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom together but with a population one hundred times smaller. But besides being a huge country we must add that on this lands there is not exist words like “assistance” or “urgent”, so easy, whatever will happen to you over there you will be depending on yourself, nobody will come to solve your problems. Namibia from the beginning make you to spend all your energy and intimidates you with the intention to cause you vertigo,Namibia want to see how truly special you are. Maybe you have come very far but rarely to a place like this. In just one week…

DALTON HIGHWAY, ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS ROUTES.

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text] Many times we have been asked if we get bored after spending too much time traveling, but the answer to this occasion always comes out of our mouth so directly and clearly: "never." The route reserves for us every day new experiences and new friends, when you are traveling constantly there is no one day same like the previous one. But still like that is possible to exist some routine that decrease the magic of the trip and with it your motivation. And it does not matter that every day we have to solve situations such as finding where to spend the night, deciding who to trust, how to overcome a storm in the mountains, where to find shelter before the sun goes down and the temperature drop dangerously or solve a problem in the motorcycle in the middle of nowhere. That's what we've been doing every day for the past few years and so many experiences accumulated make it easier for us to handle all those kinds of situations along the way. When this routine push down our enthusiasm... in that case we also have the solution. That's when we look for a challenge to overcome, a difficult one even when it seems almost impossible or painful, because only these challenges will radically make a break with the routine and fill our journey with color, renewing the desire to continue. When we were crossing the west coast of the USA to get to Canada was one of the moments when we felt that routine, beautiful route but we needed something else, everything was going too well and it seemed very easy. So when we arrive to know about a statistic that said that only 2% of the travelers that go to Alaska dare to visit Deadhorse, the…

RWANDA IS THE BIGGEST SURPRISE TRAVELING THROUGH AFRICA

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="2/3"][vc_column_text] When climbing the Bisoke volcano at halfway there is a place where the trees let an open space leaving the perfect spot to rest with great views of the valley. Then the first thing you can see is a clear line that draws the border between the forest of animals and the fields of crops from the humans. This line that looks like a snake zigzagging between the volcanoes is talking us of an old war between man and the wild world, and how men with their plantations were pushing the symbolic snake to the top of the volcanoes as devouring the land of animal and ancients forest, letting them so small region to life until almost exterminate some of its habitants as unique as the mountain gorilla. But in these battlefields there is not only one war, but many. Poachers join the massacre and become mercenaries who cross the border line and enter the forest in search of small baby gorillas, perhaps because of the request from a zoo in Russia or a circus company in Europe because of course ... the circus that has gorillas receives more visits from children than the one that does not have. It's funny when you discover all the possible ways to start a war, some as strange as simply buying a zoo ticket for your child. But if ignorance is a relief, conscience should be a responsibility. Do not look for more excuses, today you do not have to do much research or travel to the other side of the world to know that mountain gorillas are as social and familiar as humans are, and that is why for to kidnap a baby mountain gorilla first it must be killed all the members of its family who will try to…

WIND, COLD AND HEIGHT, THREE OF THE GREAT CHALLENGES TRAVELING ON A MOTORBIKE

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="2/3"][vc_column_text] From the moment we left our mother's womb and arrived in the world we have to be brave to take our first breath, none of us were taught how to do it or what could what could be the consequences, but nobody say no to follow that instinct because deep inside we feel that our own life depends on it. Although being that brave with a consciousness still not awakened does not seem to have much merit, the real challenge is to maintain that defiant attitude once we know the risks and we can imagine the possible wrong consequences. So if you think about it and really believe that our destiny is not to avoid those instincts and you choose to face new challenges ... then you get to experience what it really means to live, you become so addicted to those sensations and you do not wait for life to put challenges ahead like having to breathe for the first time, now you go out to look for them, now you want to run, swim, climb, jump, fly ... go out to meet the world. Everything is much more difficult when you face the unknown, so for us to go around the world on a motorcycle was a challenge from the first kilometer because the motorbike with which we were going to travel was practically the first one we had in our life, and even so we decided to drive it along some of the most hostile roads on the planet where nature had the opportunity to show us its power. These are three of the greatest natural challenges of our trip and the place where we face them: · The wind of Patagonia. Desert roads where the distance between two populations can reach 400 km without…

REMOTE PLACES: CAPE AGULHAS

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="2/3"][vc_column_text] Our planet has some very remote places where to reach is the dream of every traveler. The great rock of Uluru in the heart of Australia, Ushuaia as the southernmost city on the planet or Deadhorse at the other end of the continent located on the shores of the Arctic Sea were some of the checkpoints of our journey on motorcycle around the world. Getting there is special because you are surrounded for an amazing landscape where you feel far from everything, because the sacrifices and suffering that could cost you to reach that place get a meaning and specialy because you can absorb the energy and dreams, sometimes expressed with messages on some rock or signal, that left other travelers who arrived there before you, a source of extra power to return to the route thinking in a new destination.

First we look to the East and we remember that on the other side of the Indian Ocean is Asia,…

8 DESTINATIONS IN EAST AFRICA TO TRAVEL WITHOUT A GUIDE AND TO YOUR OWN LUCK. (PART 1)

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="2/3"][vc_column_text] Ask any traveler and they will answer you that to meet with people around the world was one of their main interests. This happen because it is an instinct, we travel to understand our own kind and like that to help us to know better ourselves... and perhaps to find sense of this strange joke called life. So our subconscious has this attraction for the diversity that the human being developed, these differences between humans invite us to travel and meet with tribes like the Mursi in Ethiopia, the Eskimos in the Arctic or the Australian aborigines. But then we arrived to some point when the more cultures, races, tribes or religious beliefs we meet, the faster those superficial differences look a small thing compared to everything we have in common, ending with a idea of ​​the human being as a unique species with the same destiny. But as in any process of knowledge, before starting to theorize where we should go as a species we must know where we come from, and the answer to this question will be found in East Africa, the cradle of humanity. These are the 8 destinations that we recommend, a special tour without safaris, resorts or massais graduates in tourism that speak 5 languages.

Lake Natron (Tanzania) National Parks like Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Kilimanjaro or Masai Mara can present some inconveniences if you are immersed in a motorcycle trip. Its high cost may exceed the limits of your budget, the ban on going on your own motorcycle will force you to go by jeep through an organized tour and the massive tourist definitely kill the magic of the African…
