...and I've allways felt that the beauty of being surrounded by the foreign, is that it slaps you awake. You can't take anything for granted. Travel for me is a little bit like being in love, because suddenly all your senses are at the setting marked “on”. Suddenly you're alert to the secret patterns of the world. The real voyage of discovery, as Marcel Praust would famously said, consist not in seeing new sights, but in looking with new eyes. And ofcourse once you have new eyes, even the old sights, even your home becomes something different.

- Pico Iyer

Normally I adapt myself to the needs and structures of the tours I'm hired for, giving my 
personal touch to it. On the other side, the tours that I conceive and execute have a dense emphasis 
on self knowledge contextualized in two aspects:

Our identity and the idea we have of our capabilities as social beings is constructed mainly by the culture where we grew up.
Just like we cannot see te boundaries of a black circle over a black background, we cannot recognize ourselves in some way in our own environment. 
But if we put the circle on a white background, its circumference will stand out right away. The same happens with us: It's through experiencing another culture, that we can recognize the characteristics of our own culture, specially the ones that are unconscious. 
The goal of the cross cultural tours and activities is to know ourselves through our experience of the other.


Nature is more than a taxonomical classification of phenomena and species and the theories of how they relate between them. Our body is a perceptual machine, able of feeling the world in different ways, if we get to focus our attention in the right elements and for the right amount of time... It's like a muscle, that must be trained and toned in a specific way so it can achieve an specific accomplishment. The tours and activities in nature have as a goal to know our perceptual potencial through the stimulation of our sensoria in a natural environment.
