UNPREDICTABLE CHANGES AND UNPLANNED PROJECTS, THAT IS OUR WAY

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="2/3"][vc_column_text] Personally we been always defending the minimum planning in our travel projects, to the point that when we decided to go around the world on a motorcycle all we did was to put a map in front of us and choose three points, Uluru, Ushuaia and Deadhorse. The plan was as simple as reaching those three places with our motorcycle and everything else, routes, visas, risks, spare parts, mechanical knowledge, financing and many other elements was left free of plans and expectations. A travel philosophy that gave us many surprises, some quite uncomfortable and painful, but that was more than efficient. 4 and a half years later, letting ourselves go and following the signs that destiny was putting on our way, we reached our goal. Perhaps when we finished that motorcycle trip we did wrong by betraying our own principles, planning all the aspects of our next adventure, a new journey around the planet but this time in a classic 4x4 campervan. We planned everything we could from the beginning, we looked for sponsors and decided the way to generate income during the journey, we organized the route to know where we would start, where to go and where we wanted to end the trip. We also wanted to prepare the van the best possible and we spent more than 3 months in its camper conversion and looking for all the accessories that we could imagine we would need at some point, even we began to study the manual of the van to predict possible breakdowns and learn know how we could solve them. We hardly left anything for improvisation and surprises, and then it happened what use to happen in this cases. Just a week before putting the van in a container to take it to America…

YOGA HELPED ME TO BE STRONG IN THE HARDEST MOMENTS

I never get interest.  I was preferring hiking, walking, running, aerobic and all kind of different physical activities more dynamics. Yoga for me was too connected to meditation and mysticism and back then it looks that I was just concerned about my body, not much for my mind. But as most of the world can experience this days lifestyle and preferences can change radically in a single day. In our case it wasn’t now with all this coronavirus thing going around, for us it happen just a bit before. When Manu got bladder cancer at the beginning of 2018 we have stop traveling and a very intense hospital routine started for us. This kind of cancer is rare to be diagnosed for a young man but it is not if your immune system is exhausted after several years traveling on a motorcycle around the world and an invisible African parasite infects you and lives in your bladder for months, or years. It was then when we really start to worry about the necessity of giving rest to our bodies so we began with healthier life habits, basically exercising more often, eating a very natural and vegetarian diet, always avoiding processed food, sugar, alcohol... and of course we gave a chance to Yoga. It happens in that moment, Manu and I got in love of this Indian discipline. This sickness was very well and very fast treated for the public healthy system in Spain, those amazing doctors and nurses take very…
