I know what it entails to read a travel blog; escapism doesn’t cost a thing and reading about nice places doesn’t mean you’ll cry about not experiencing them yourself. But writing one is a different story. I do try to keep it real and I am well aware of the huge gap between the people who … More Nahyeeni, a little paradise a stone’s throw from Maputo
VêSó is a non-profit making organisation that wishes to gather a collection of images in order to create a digital bank of datas and archived pictures to keep a trace of how a city/country/neighbourhood looked like at a given period of time. The idea started in Angola and has now been launched in Mozambique by a very … More My first VêSó outing
I’ve already said it, I have a pretty poor knowledge of where most places are located on our planet, and Namibia was until recently one of them. The only quality that saves me from being an ignorant fool is that I am a curious ignorant fool, so that’s okay, I guess, isn’t it? What fascinates … More 10 days & 3500 km in Namibia
Life is getting in the way of my blog, people. Not good… But fine at the same time in a way, I suppose, because it means I’m finding ways to keep myself busy. After over a year here, it was about time really! Anyhow, nothing should come in the way of telling you how beautiful … More Mauritius, diverse and delightful tiny island

Only a couple of hours away (140 km northeast of Maputo), with lots of lodges and campsites to choose from, Bilene and its so-called lagoon could be the best destination ever when the only … More Bilene, a pleasant surprise
Ilha de Moçambique is where everything started. The name of the country itself comes from Ali Musa Mbiki who was an Arab trader doing business on the island in the 15th century. The territory at the time was controlled by the arabs and Vasco da Gama had to pretend to be Muslim then in order to gain audience … More Beautiful Ilha
I might be writing a travel blog but it doesn’t make me a geography expert. Far from it. There are many places on Earth that I have never heard of, let alone know how to locate them on a map. Swaziland is, or rather was, one of them. Luckily, to make up for my overall … More Swaziland, the Switzerland of Africa. Kind of.
When you have a look at the map of Maputo, you immediately notice that the central area of the city corresponds to a planned structure made of square blocks and wide avenues. This part of the city was the former Cidade de Cimento, that is to say the part of town that was made of concrete, … More Mafalala
Put the fishing net in the water. Wait. Pull out of the sea. Count the fish. Share. Repeat.
