Hi there traveller. I'm Lipe!
I'm so happy you are here!

 

 

 

 

Welcome to The World Hopper. This project was spontaneously born 5 years ago while I was cruising the Mekong River on the slow boat from Thailand to Laos. My goal was very clear from the very beginning; create a website with creative and visual travel information and inspiration for other backpackers, in hopes one day it’d turn into a reference page for passionate travelers like me. During the past 4 years, I have relied on several platforms and people to help me build my dream site, only to be let down time after time in every single attempt. I have put my heart, soul, mind and my entire life into this project. So it only made sense to take the wheel myself and start creating what I envisioned 4 years ago on that uncomfortable, but memorable, boat journey in Southeast Asia. Although this current site is far from being what I want The World Hopper to become, I figured it was time to launch a website and start connecting with people. I kindly ask you to please bear with me as I improve the structure and implement new elements to the site. Thank you for being here.

Happy travels my friends!

Navidades al sol
Visita Mercadillo Navideño

«Mientras que en Europa el invierno nos acecha con bajas temperaturas, otros destinos alrededor del mundo gozan del verano en pleno diciembre como, por ejemplo, Centro américa. Por ello, si este año lo que buscas es cambiar la bufanda y botas de nieve por un pareo y chanclas, tus navidades ya tienen nuevo destino: Bienvenidos/as a México. Este maravilloso país brinda una magia inconfundible y lugares característicos que no puedes dejar de ver como los increíbles cenotes, donde podrás bucear y dejarte maravillar por estas bellezas de la naturaleza. Los precios rondan entre los 3-6€ y suelen estar abiertos al público de 10:00-17:00 hr. Chac Mool es uno de mis cenotes favoritos ya que aquí podrás ser testigo del fenómeno haloclina, producido cuando agua dulce se mezcla con agua salada, o bien el Suytun, el cenote más Instagrameable de la zona en el cual podrás capturar fotos brutales para tu Instagram. Pero sea cual sea el cenote que elijas entre los 20 que se encuentran en la Riviera Maya, la abrumadora belleza de estos pozos no te decepcionará».

Todos solemos sobrecargar nuestra maleta con ropa por si acaso. Pero tras años viajando, aprendí que esos momentos por si acaso nunca llegan, y terminas agobiado/a con una maleta tan pesada que incluso te cuestionas si quieres volver a visitar un destino de invierno. La clave está en empaquetar lo justo para hacer turismo cómodamente estando adecuadamente abrigado/a. Para destinos con nieve, yo opto por llevar una mochila, ya que es más fácil caminar por las calles nevadas sin necesidad de ir arrastrando un trolley. Intento llevar puestas las prendas que más abultan como abrigo y botas, así gano espacio dentro de la mochila para un par de jerséis para alternar, un par de camisetas térmicas, leggins para usar por debajo de los pantalones y accesorios de invierno como bufanda, gorro y calcetines térmicos. Para fotografiar, llevo guantes con las puntas de los dedos índice y pulgar desplegables para poder hacer fotos sin necesidad de quitarme los guantes. Recordad, viajar cómodamente a destinos de invierno con una maleta ligera es posible».
