Armenia

Armenia, a legendary nation that predates most of the countries that exist anywhere on Earth. The very first Christian nation, a titan of the Southern Caucasus. That is what I had in mind before traveling to Armenia, nonetheless, I was met with a nation in decay, an identity in ruins and a blindfolded territory that has suffered the fall of the Nagorno Karabagh to the Azeris like a mother that has lost her children.

Zacatecas, Mexico

It’s not Northern Mexico but it’s not Southern Mexico either — Zacatecas the gate between radically different parts of the country.

Probably the most troubled place on Earth. A trip which had to be done in order to learn from the horrors of war, ethnic and religious discriminations and human rights violations. Three intense days that changed the way I perceive the conflict and left me conflicted with myself.

Georgia

Georgian culture is one of the world’s richest. Its history, its food, its people, its traditions — it is hardly matchable. However, its political stability is not as strong as its heritage. The ongoing Russian occupation and the protests of March 2023 are deeply changing the Caucasian country. I crossed the country from one tip to the other in order to learn more about it and found multiple surprises. Don’t miss it.

Hanoi

Cold in Vietnam!? I know it sounds weird but it was actually chilly. Truly sensing a different climate changes your perception of the place you are visiting. My views on Vietnam after having previously visited the South changed drastically.

Story by Manuel Campos (08-12-2022)

Chiang Mai

I found Chiang Mai to be quite boring. I don’t know if it was because I had a very bad cold or because the city is objectively boring. Temples, temples and more temples. Still, I was able to reunite with some good friends.

Story by Manuel Campos (03-12-2022)
