More and more of us “dare” with this incredible "fearsome" gem. Its triple mountain ranges in the north –Himalayas, Karakoram and Hindu Kush–, bordering countries as diverse as India, China, Afghanistan (and almost Tajikistan), are an ode to nature. Rivers, lakes, glaciers, endless suspension bridges, forests and even cold deserts await after epic journeys on winding roads. Some with historical importance on the Silk Trade Route between the Indian subcontinent and Central Asia, such as the Karakoram Highway.
But there is something even more wonderful than all that: the Pakistani people. Punjabis, Sindhis, Pashtuns, Chitralis, Kalashis, Sinas, Kashmiris, Baluches... all of them very varied ethnic groups but with one characteristic in common: their generosity and unparalleled hospitality. Welcome to the most hospitable country in the world.
El Pekín Express Canino. In March 2019, my dog Cocaí and I left Madrid with a backpack, a tent and an ambitious mission: hitchhiking to China. When we were in India, an unwanted guest came on the scene and turned the world upside down, including our trip. Three years later we returned home, taking with us a path full of learning, adventures, wonderful beings... and a new dog: Chai :-) More info about this book, actually a trilogy, here (only Spanish).
South America & North America Travel Diaries. These two books speak, in the form of diaries, of my first years as a backpacker, including the encounter with Cocaí in Bolivia and all the adventures I lived with her. I place special emphasis on the connection with nature and the people that the journey gave us. Read more here (only Spanish).
