One of my biggest dreams in life was getting to know the Argentinean Patagonia. I didn’t even know the names of the cities, I just knew I had to be there. Glaciers, blue lakes, calm and wide landscapes. Completely different from my home state in Brazil, a place that triggered my imagination since I was a kid. However, when I came out of my dream and started searching about travelling there, It almost became a nightmare: a place packed of tourists from all over the world and extremely, utterly expensive. At these moments, you just have to believe in one of the most powerful truths about travelling: it’s always different when you get there. Especially because I trust on my way of getting to know places. Instead of only reading travel guides and blogs, I answer all my questions by interacting with the locals. It always drives me to genuine experiences and also to cheaper travels. As I knew there must be a way of gazing at Perito Moreno Glaciar for the first time, I bought a plane ticket from Buenos Aires and went to El Calafate with my girlfriend. When we just got there, we met Nacho. He was working at a coffee shop in the center of the town and I started asking him how could we make the most of our trip, without spending lots of money. First of all, he told me to forget the dozens of travel agencies selling every kind of tours in the main street. They charge you expensive fares with transportation and other services you don’t really need, which you can avoid by sharing a car rental.

Hello, my name is Lucas Moraes and I’m a 31 year old brazilian who just loves travelling. I love it so much, that I dropped out my career as a copywriter in advertising to start a whole new life. I graduated in Advertising and worked in this area for 10 years, but now I have a travel content project with my girlfriend, called Mundo à Volta. Besides of writing, I also produce travel videos about the places we visit.
We’ve been making a living producing videos for a brazilian TV channel specialized in travelling, called Travel Box Brazil, and we are about to launch our first ebook. It’ll be a cultural guide of Buenos Aires.
I’ve travelled a lot around South America and Europe, and lived in London for one year and a half. What’s always on my mind? To visit east asia, the Eastern Island and Alaska.
