Please, let me introduce myself: My name is Jesus. I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but presently I live in Madrid, Spain, being of Spanish origin (my parents migrated to Argentina from Galicia). Since very young my passions have been soccer (I am a follower of Boca Juniors) and travelling. I am journalist and my professional field is sport. I have visited all the countries that have held the Olympic Games and have written reports for several specialized sporting magazines around the world. My two main travelling feasts, so far, have been:
- 1: my first around the world journey, which took me 80 days (like Phileas Fog) and cost me 3000 US dollars.
- 2: my pilgrimage on foot to Santiago de Compostela, from Saint Jean Pied de Port, in France, where I started as a traveller but finished up in Santiago, after 33 days, like a pilgrim.
Pretty soon I will start a new around the world journey, using mainly trains: first the Tran Siberian from Moscow to Vladivostok, in Japan I will take the Shinkansen, then I will cross all North America from coast to coast, and back to Europe I will board the legendary Orient Express.
Thanks for your attention and good travels to everybody.
