Book – My Discoveries – Around the World in Couchsurfing – 3.ª Ed.



The book My Discoveries describes a world tour that, although without an initial plan, crossed 25 countries two 5 continents in multiple ways of traveling: hitchhiking between Lisbon and Dakar; with a helicopter rescue in South Africa; camping in the Peruvian Amazon; in social work in the slums of Brazil; sleeping in capsule hotels in Japan; volunteering at an orphanage in Mozambique; in spiritual retreats in Argentina and Australia; and pedal the final kilometers of the trip, from Barcelona to Lisbon by bicycle.

On this trip a little bit of everything happened. And to have a better relationship with local societies, most stays were through the Couchsurfing system.

The places, the people and moments of this journey are narrated in this book through 90 Chronicles, photographs and maps, gaining the reader also access to a documentary and a podcast.
