Días de viaje

Travel Stories Illustrated by Vero Gatti | Non FIction, 2013 | 352 pages

On January 28, 2008, at the age of 22, Aniko hopped on a bus from Buenos Aires to Bolivia and began her life as a nomad. From that day on, she traveled around 30 countries in four continents as a solo-backpacker and worked as a freelance writer and photographer along the way. As traveling became her way of life, her calendar stopped being structured around days and months, and became marked by experiences.

In Días de viaje, Aniko recalls the day five chinese woman of an ethnic minority invited her over for tea; the day she sailed across the Caribbean during an electric storm; the day she experienced the strangest robbery of her life; the day she started collecting abandoned playing cards in Laos; the day she saw the aurora borealis in Lapland; the day she went on a road trip with Filipino priests; the day she suffered from post-trip depression; the day she fell in love with a city; the day she explored the Sahara with desert nomads; the day she understood that being a full-time traveler was not the same as being on a full-time holiday and the day she understood that she had become a digital nomad.

The author shares fragments of her travel diaries and narrates, in a very personal way, her trips around Latin America, Asia, Africa and Europe.

Her style is so intimate that she takes the reader along on her trips and makes them identify with her thoughts and feelings.
