Hi! We are Thiago and Marcela. Nice to meet you! We are a Brazillian couple. Thiago is a cook and Marcela an Arts teacher. We decided to create "Movido a Cultura" (Driven by Culture is the best translation) because of our mutual desire to travel the world. By sharing our journey, we want to create a connection with those who visit us. We believe that culture is diversity itself. It is what sets us apart and also unites us. Our desire is to be able to discover, learn and share what we are experiencing in the places we visit. We want to create a plural platform of cultural sharing through our website and social networks with photos, videos, recipes, travel tips, curiosities and also suggestions from those who follow us. We hope you will join us and share our enthusiasm for learning something new! Welcome to "Movido a Cultura"!

Barcelona - oh what a beautiful place. Like why did it me so long to come here It’s insane here. First thing that catches my eyes was architecture! Just breathtaking. I’m more attracted to nature but I couldn’t take my eyes off.

We actually found the Eiffel Tower in good time. We got on the Metro from the Arc de Triomphe and off we popped straight to the Eiffel Tower. Being a tourist isn't that difficult if you actually know what you're doing.

Around Cambodia and Bangalore
Welcome to Cambodia! 🇰🇭 We walked across the border while our baggage was carted across for us by local workers. After traveling for a couple hours we stopped and had the most wonderful, family style lunch.

Wherever I may roam
Wanting what you can't have and don't wanting what you can is probably the most ridiculous behavior there is, in my opinion. It's not that I don't do it, I know I do. Maybe even more than others. I have the urge to go for the unknown as I wrote before. But second on the list might as well be the unreachable. The unreachable is always interesting to me. It dares me to try get the furthest I can. Tasting from something that I really want, but don't have (yet) is something that thrives me to go on, try harder. I think I'm not alone here, showing this behavior. From a young age my mom would use the technique of telling my sister to not eat her food to seduce her to actually do eat it. And she mostly succeeded too. Same with some or most of my friends nowadays. Guys who are unreachable, or who simply have no interest are found way more attractive. Now I wonder. Why don't we feel attracted to those guys? I mean they should be appreciated most, when you ask me. Why is it we experience it as uninteresting when it's obviously not? Do we always want to fight for something? And when won, are we then satisfied? Or do we keep on wondering. Keep on looking for the better? I guess it's that. Improving, innovating, renewing, refinding is all we do lately. And change for me has always been good, so I'm totally for this process, but when is it enough? Me writing this I don't even know what the answer is I want. I'm just very much aware of that we should be happy with what we have right here right now.

Sidetrip: City of San Fernando, La Union
Wasn't able to visit the spanish era watchtower of San Fernando due to time constraints. That would be for another travel journal entry. As for me, I'm back to the metro!

A quaint little town named Luna
On the shores of Luna, people are picking stones and pebbles for sale as garden supplies. The shore is few minutes walk from the church and another National Cultural Treasure in the town of Luna can be found on this shore this is the Old Watchtower of Luna. This is a collection of Spanish Era Watchtowers scattered along the coastal towns of Bacnotan, Balaoan, Luna, San Fernando and San Juan. Maybe my next trip to La Union would be for those 4 other towns to complete this collection of National Cultural Treasures.
