My Travel Story

by: Lucia Matamoros Start Date: Aug 17, 2017 - End Date: Jan 13, 2018
Why on Earth would we want to travel across Europe by car?
Well, why wouldn't we?
Each of us has been around, visited some countries and done tourism. But we want this trip to be different, we want it to make a difference. The meaning attached to this project is both personal, as cultural. Not only do we want to live the European culture, but to promote it. We seek not to be tourists, but travelers - as cheesy as that sounds. As a political volunteer and a journalist, we will surely make the most out of it.
We look for experiences, friends, and projects, we aim to broaden our view of the world, and show it to others. We will do so through our passion for photography, exploring its possibilities, from astrophotography through sports and documentation. We will top it up with a short film on the experience.
Our general plan is to set off from our neighborhood in Barcelona, and drive through France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Denmark, Holland, and Germany, to finally arrive at Norway. From there, we will drive back through Sweden, Switzerland, and Italy.
Why is Norway the destiny, the pivot of the trip? It is so because of the beauty it has, the magic it inspires within us and the background it has to offer.
We are not only seeking to be in those places but to build something out of it.  And we want to know what adventures would YOU want us to take part in.
The details of the trip are:
- Length: ~10 days
- Accommodation: Airbnb generally
- Transport: car (we will try to find the one with best price-CO2 emission relation)
- People: 2-4
