Hello and welcome to my Wikivoyage page. I love to travel and to share accurate travel information.

My pages here in Wikivoyage are a bit around the countries I have traveled.

I'm currently trying to put together the Nkob Wikivoyage page, but also added some information on Saharan Morocco and Rissani. In the future I'll try to update and create better pages for Merzouga, Khamlia, Hassilabied and Ouarzazate.

Inspiration

"Mais espantados ficariam se as tivessem visto como eu as vi: cortejos com milhares de figurantes, multidões em movimentos aguerridos, manadas de elefantes conduzidos por soldados (como se cavalos de batalha fossem aquelas alimárias), naufrágios em que se perderam tesouros e mais tesouros, travessias de pântanos e florestas com feras muitas, combates em alto mar em que todos (ou quase todos) pereceram, cidades cercadas e logo mais totalmente destruídas por incêndios, princesas formosas em seus palácios deslumbrantes e mendigos mutilados, paixões e desvarios."

Fernão Mendes Pinto (1509 – 1583)
