"Echoes of a Kiss" - 2018


For best viewing quality, please press the "HD" letters on the bottom right and choose 1080p, or 720p.

While some plans work well to the smallest details and other plans are completely derailed by unforseen circumstances, adaptability and teamwork remain the only means to move forward.
We visited “Bluie East Two”, a former US Army base from World Wor II located in East Greenland, in 2014 and four years later, in 2018, we decided to retrace our steps and find the echoes of a kiss shared at the Blue Hut.
The endeavor reminded us how precious the time we spend together is and how important it is to embrace graciously whatever nature, or fate, throws at you.
We tried to balance the magical solitude of Greenland with a fast paced road trip through Iceland.
Thank you for taking the time to come along and share the glimpses of our 167 minute long video diary.

"Ragi Pañi Mo" - 2017 is a 139 minutes long video diary that takes you on a detailed journey from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia.

This might be the last episode of the "Travelotherapy" series. Thank you very much for staying with us all these years.

We would like to express our gratitude to our Argentine and Chilean hosts and, of course, to all the musicians that made the presentation of this video diary much more appealing through their creativity and generosity.

For best viewing quality, please press the "HD" letters on the bottom right and choose 1080p, or 720p.
The TraveloTherapy Series takes a short break…
“Lazy Wake - 2016” is a 99 minutes long video diary that takes you aboard a jumpy power boat around Marathon, Florida.
After the long paddling days in the cold rain of the Glacier Bay National Park, in Alaska, the “Two Nomads” (Doi Nomazi) gave in to the temptation of a lazy wake in the sunny Florida Keys.
M., one of the two nomads, learned to maneuver a power boat and became the fearless Captain M. Seasick… :)
VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED: This video contains more power boat images than any power boat enthusiast can tolerate... smile emoticon View at your own risk!
Enjoy!.

Melting Whispers - 2015


"Melting Whispers - 2015" is a 163 minute long video diary filmed with consumer grade equipment during our paddling journey on the East Arm of Glacier Bay, Alaska.

Seduced by the powerful descriptions of John Muir and Rev. Samuel Hall Young, we tried to follow the echoes of their 1879 journey to Glacier Bay.

We never seek to establish any records, conquer peaks, or blaze new paths. We are just two, mostly sedentary, urban dwellers who enjoy the magic beauty and the untamed freedom offered by the wilderness.

We also love movies. We love watching movies and we have fun playing with cameras and editing.

This video diary takes you aboard the Easy Rider Beluga tandem kayak and allows you to experience some visual and emotional details of our journey. We hope that our video diary will inspire you to fall in love with nature and embrace your own outdoors adventure.

Enjoy!

Urban Pulse - 2014 (Winter Vignettes)

“Urban Pulse – 2014” is a 79 minute long video diary that brings you the winter vignettes from a relaxing trip to Key West, Florida.
After paddling the spectacular Everglades National Park five winters in a row and while we’ll never give up paddling and sailing our folding tandem kayak, aka the mighty U-Boat, we thought of indulging in the comfort of an outboard motor…
Hop along on a lazy trip and enjoy the various flavors of action, from motor boating in our new inflatable KaBoat, to snorkeling and sky diving. Ride a scooter and stroll with us on Duval Street and through the mysterious passages of Fort Jefferson on the Dry Tortugas.
OK, we spared you our bad singing this time. Well, kind of… :)
Special thanks, for his warm welcoming and hospitality, to Randy at Burdines Marina in Marathon, Florida.

Bluie East Two - 2014

"Bluie East Two - 2014" is a 151 minute long video diary filmed on our paddling journey on the magical east coast of Greenland.

Although you will continue to relax in the comfort of your favorite couch, this rather long video diary will bring you to each and every step of the endeavor, from the planning stage, to the post-scriptum. You'll be able to share the pain and the joy of the two nomads, their silly bad acting and the victories of solid team work.

This video diary is also a humble tribute to the Esprit de Corps, team work and, above all, to all the men and women in uniform. Are you ready?

Welcome aboard the "U-Boat", a Long Haul Mark II Commando tandem kayak! Please, sing along, because the two nomads sure need a lot of help singing... :)

Echoes of the Eskampaba - 2013

We are a regular couple with full time jobs that keep us far away from the water and the wilderness that we always long for. We have no special training, we are not athletes and we are not seeking any records. We just enjoy being together in nature... Welcome aboard the U-Boat, our Long Haul Mark II Commando folding kayak, for a 86 minute long paddling and sailing journey through the beautiful Everglades National Park. We'll put in Everglades City and take out in Flamingo. Grab the popcorn... :) ...

Enjoy!
