Travel & Tips

Brazil and Argentina I have just spent the most amazing 3 months in South America. It all started with the €150 re-positioning Nomad Cruise from Spain to Brazil. I wrote blogs with tips for Brazil and Argentina. Especially recommended are the video of an adrenaline motor ride in the favela’s with a former drug dealer  and my very personal blog ‘life lessons from tango‘. I was so impressed by what I learned, that I am flying my teacher over to Amsterdam for the workshop ‘Tango as a mirror‘ in April – May. See you there?
