After our latest SE Asia adventures that took us to Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia during the month of October and a bit of November, it is awesome to go back to our homeland – base – and find out nothing has changed in this little paradise of ours in the North West coast of Spain called GALICIA.
And, as if this wasn’t enough, arriving here to a warm Fall is something that fills us with joy and just pushes us outside.
So the first afternoon spent here, we headed to a nearby beach by Corrubedo dunes, a highly preserved area which displays an array of beautiful landscapes and particular eco-diversity.
Here’s a little video I shooted while there.
But, if there is something we are truly excited about on top of returning to Galicia, that is introducing our new partners to you.
We are very happy to start working with these companies, especially since the products they gave us have proven to be perfect to travel with not only for their durability, specs and size but also because they are all pretty damn sexy!
The guys at JORD are now offering free shipping worldwide so why don’t you have a look to these fab and eco-friendly wood watches? I chose this one:

Picture this. You are part of #inatopbucketlist, therefore you find yourself in Yogyakarta, a vibrant Central Java city. After visiting the nearby Buddhist complex of Borobudur at sunrise, the Hindu temple of Prambanan at sunset and the complex of Rato Boko Keraton at noon, your body has already started to adjust to the #wonderfulindonesia humid heat. A couple of days have passed and on top of all those world class sights, you have also tried your luck in jewellery and batik making, wandered around Malioboro street and other neighborhoods and overall had lots of fun (and delicious meals in good restaurants, good night sleeps in a gorgeous heritage hotel and a couple of dips in the most amazing pool in town). You can’t complain. You are being treated and welcomed everywhere. Life is good. So here the 3rd day in town begins. The Royal and Water palaces are on your plans for the day AND the heat starts kicking it soon, insanely early. At 11am, your non-used-to-this-heat-at-all body is already melting. You really want to take in everything that is being laid in front of you but unluckily your energy levels start going down. You look for the shade, try to cool off with the coldest water available and move slowly, following the crowd through these touristic spots. Suddenly it starts leading you underground. Every step, the temperature decreases and you feel more and more alive. You have found the most amazing spot in town to be at noon and you are not planning to leave it for some time. * Ps. Our group spent a good time enjoying the coolness of #SumurGumuling, a former underground mosque dating from the 18th century. Its unique design makes it for great acoustics and a safe place to scape the – sometimes – extremely hot weather of Yogyakarta. IMO, the city deserves a proper visit just for this construction alone. Pure awesomeness. A photo posted by A World to Travel (@aworldtotravel) on

Titanic 🚢 Island-hopping around Komodo National Park archipelago was one of the highlights of our #WonderfulIndonesia trip last month. In case you want to experience it as well, there’s a contest going out these days that will give 10 lucky people the opportunity to travel to Indonesia on an all expenses paid adventure next month. You still have a few more days to enter it. Go check the link on our profile out now.
Take me back to Komodo islands. #wonderfulindonesia #inatopbucketlist A photo posted by A World to Travel (@aworldtotravel) on
