For Curious
Travelers Only

Unexpected findings to share.

Traveling is the passion of many. Discovering  places off schedule, taking the risk of small or big detours, not so much. I started traveling this sublime earth as a teenager, with a backpack and staying at youth hostels. Since then, I have circled the globe several times, but the constant element in my trips, it's the fact that I live the most memorable moments when I go off script, and plunge into The Small Detour. This site is to inspire you to take your own.

One of the most unforgettable journeys of my life happened in the San Blas Islands in Panama where I traveled (by airplane and then canoe) to film a documentary on the kuna population. It was simply magical, like I left this world and landed i...

Iceland- This could very well be the best Bloody Mary ever! Near Reikjavik almost at the end of completing the entire Ring Road around the island, we took The Small Detour and by sheer luck found Friðheimar, where a local family grows tomatoes...

My wife and I met for the very first time at an airport. This should have been a clear sign that our amazing life together will include plenty of trips and adventures. I was leaving for a short trip and she had asked me for a work related meet...

Greece- Katikies Hotel in Santorini is too gorgeous for words. A breathtaking hotel in a more breathtaking island. I have been to Greece four times and have seen it change through the years, but stay always intact in its beauty and traditions....

New Orleans- It was New Year's Eve and in New Orleans, you barely sleep even without that excuse. The night before we went bar hopping and getting into the Cajun Spirit (and flavors) among locals and visitors. The last day of 2015 we decided t...

 To catch a funeral or a wedding in New Orleans is to hit the jackpot (sorry about the funeral part, but it's true). They are stunning experiences that involve great music, and the result of the many cultures that conversed to create this uniq...

Venice- It's an impossible task to try to pick a favorite museum in Italy (it's Italy! Every other building is a museum) but I adore the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice. I am also fascinated by her novelesque life and the fact that decad...

Japan- The Tsukiji Market its unavoidable if you visit Tokyo, and for good reason. It is the largest wholesale fish market in the planet. The Tuna Auction in Tsukiji Fish Market, for example, has been operating for 20 generations. It's an unfo...
