about us:

We like travelling, surfing, meeting people, windsurfing, nature, outdoor sports with a high intensity, foreign cultures, local nightlife, local food and drinks!, art, the search, new horizons and some things more....

We want to share our experiences and we want to make You go on a trip. To give You an imagination of what You can find on this beautiful planet and to help You choosing Your next travel destination, we collected storys, pictures and information that might be usefull or maybe even give You some inspiration.

We┤re not gonna tell You the last detail of the featured destinations. We concentrate more on giving an overall impression because we think that the search is an important part of the experience. And of course we want to protect the featured spots of getting overrun by hords of travellers. Therefore we try to make it not too easy, get more vague with lesser known places and show no maps. Because if You don┤t know how to read maps You┤d better stay at home. And the chance is not too bad that on searching one spot You┤ll stumble over another place that┤s even better......
