“Viagens de Uma Vida” – The world told in the first person (and one of the stories is mine!)
I wrote a travel book!… Well, I didn’t do it alone, but together with other great Portuguese bloggers. “Viagens de Uma Vida” (“Trips Of a Lifetime”) is the first book by ABVP – Portuguese Travel Bloggers Association (of which I’m a member), which brings together 25 incredible and inspiring travel stories.
These are first-person narratives, full of emotion and unusual experiences, which has now reached the bookstores!
From Greenland to Australia, from Japan to Argentina, passing through such distinct and contrasting places, such as a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh or the unparalleled happiness of Holi Fest in India. This work is an authentic trip around the world by the words of different travelers.
My trip of a lifetime
Among these 25 chronicles of extraordinary travel is my trip to Nicaragua!
I chose this destination in Latin America to tell you how challenging it was to travel, for the first time, in a country on the brink of civil war. I assure you that it was not easy, a mix of emotions that I bring to these pages, and that I hope will also transport you to the days I spent with the Nicaraguan people.
I leave you a little excerpt:
It was when I approached the main avenues that I saw the first signs. Large streets cut with what was at hand — boulders, oil drums, tires — and huge banners with messages of order: “Together We Are Nicaragua”
