SCOTLAND, 4 MONTHS IN

June 21st, 2018. Summer solstice, the longest day of the year. That night it seemed like the sun didn’t set, and outside of Craig and Sara’s flat the seagulls understood that quite well. I was exhausted from long flights and layovers, so much so I hardly noticed much of my surroundings at first. As Sean… Read more »

SUMMER 2015 IN CHAMONIX

Lots of work, not enough play. Be warned, if you come to Chamonix to climb and support yourself at the same time, don’t expect to climb 5 days a week and work 2 because the exact opposite is what is going to happen. And that pretty sums up my summer: lots of mountain running before… Read more »

BEM VINDO AO MEU NOVO SITE

PREPARAÇÃO PARA A VIAGEM – PARTE 2

Tirei o sábado, dia 11, pra comprar tudo que faltava pra viagem, afinal durante a semana seria impossível, com aula de pós e compromissos marcados pra todos os dias. E ainda tinha que arrumar a mochila! Praticamente uma malabarista! Pois bem, consegui comprar tudo – que na verdade era a comida que estava faltando, cartucho… Read more »

TRIP DE CARNAVAL

Eu não perco tempo! Tive uma aulinha de como marcar coordenadas no mapa pra ter mais precisão na hora de se locomover, já que as cartas não vem com as coordenadas completas em graus, minutos e segundos… mas dei uma esquecida. O jeito foi fazer força com o cérebro e tentar lembrar como fazia, afinal… Read more »
