Cappadocia from the sky

Everything starts very early. The moon is on the sky shaped in the same way as the Turkish flag. Flying with balloon is magic, quiet and you feel peace while the day starts.

It was a cold morning in the middle of the Turkish peninsula, in Göreme, the heart of Cappadocia, the land made of sculptures and where the people lives underground. One of the typical and unforgettable activities that everyone must do in Capadoccia is a Balloon flight.

Happy Birthday Mapping The Map!

One year ago we decided to start a common project: to create a travel blog that focuses on the experiences that everybody can have in different parts of the world. We didn’t want to create the typical tips blog that explains you how to do and how to plan everything to repeat the travel that others did.

We understand travelling as an exploration, a way of being kids in somewhere new. For this reason, although we also give some tips this is not the base of our blog. We try to focus on experiences and describe them, we try to be as original as possible and write not only about the most common destinations but also undiscovered places. An example of this is our travel to Namibia last summer.

Sandwich Harbour: 4×4, dunes and sea

During our trip to Namibia we visited amazing places, but one of the most impressive sites was Sandwich Harbour. We took a great number of photos there and it was absolutely justified! Sandwich Harbour is advertised by the companies that organize trips thereto as the place where the dunes meet the sea (and this is literally true). But where is Sandwich Harbour and how can you visit this amazing environment during your Namibian roadtrip? Just keep reading!

Wild Namibia (Video)

Wild. This may be the best word to describe Namibia. Or maybe, Desolation? Or Lonelyness? Wide? Virgin? Well, we don’t know. But it will be difficult to experience again what we have experienced in Namibia. We don’t have enough words, so let this video talk for us. Some people have already seen it before we post it in the blog and all of them had tears in their eyes at the end. What is your feeling after watching and listening to this video? Put the volume ON and share your thoughts. 🙂

Today is 30/12/2017. We wish you a fantastic New Year 2018 full of travels that change your soul!

And if you like this video don’t miss this one. 🙂

The biggest danger in Namibia

Namibia is a wild country. Many people could think that traveling to Namibia is not safe. And that doing it without a travel agency could be worse… but this is not the case. Maybe you will think that the biggest dangers are the lions, elephants, hyenas, hypos or cheetahs but reality is far more different. The biggest danger in Namibia is…
