Ode to the journey

Hi there travellers,


We all have one or more favourite spots on this glorious globe. You probably have a particular place in this world which you love so much it gives you a smile on your face and enough energy to last for a week, just by thinking about it.


I have quite a lot of those favourite spots; for nature, adventure and cities for example. In this edition of Wideoyster Magazine two stand: the Andes of Peru for its overwhelming nature and New York City for its unbridled energy.


Mastercard is so kind to sponsor us. Thanks to them we were able to bring a cinematographic ode to New York City for this edition. We made a travel poetry film on Walt Whitman's 'Keep your Splendid Silent Sun'. Check it out. (-;

Happy trails and keep discovering,
