Our Story

diariesof is a new travel and photography magazine that begins the tale of our trip to South America. Making a journey of 22,000 kms on a motorbike, facing the vastness of the landscape and the harshness of the weather, made us feel humble. But as soon as we felt the wind blow in our faces we experienced a feeling of freedom which was priceless, which nurtured our souls and encouraged our bodies. These were certainly moments not to be missed.

When we returned from this epic trip of six months, we were inspired to put together a magazine with photos and stories about what we experienced during that time. Issues #1 and #2 of diariesof is a compilation of the stories we experienced and the stories of the travellers we met in Chile and Argentina, respectively.

We never tire of telling all the stories we have experienced, like that time when we got a lift in a hearse.

We will never forget the people we met or their generosity. We never tire of telling all the stories that illustrate this: like the time when we were sleeping in an airport and a complete stranger woke us to offer us breakfast, the time the chain of the motorbike let us down and we were rescued by a pick-up, the time we got a lift in a hearse and so many more.

Even though the trip to South America continued to other South American countries after Argentina, we decided that the following issues of the magazine should be dedicated to other countries because diariesof is not limited to South America. If you would like to know more about the adventure we are presently having, read Where are we Now.

We are now more often on the road, preferably with our motorbike, and we relish the opportunity to share the adventures we experience. diariesof is both a thank you to all the people we meet along the way and a retribution to inspire people to travel around the world.

We wish you happy reading and unique travels. Let the next travel begin…
