We are Faust of Dalmases and Sandra Salvadó, some hobbits that we went out in the 2003 of our Region with the curiosity of showing ourselves to new experiences and cultures.
We have been sharing more than half of our lives, we met at school when we were 15 years old and we have always been great friends. Our first great trip together was by train through Scotland and England, stopping in Amsterdam and Paris; I remember turning 21 that summer because of a photo where I go out showing my age with my fingers. It was the year 1993 and we returned unbearable from the good time we had.
Over the years we realized that more than friends we wanted to be life partners, so we tried to be a couple and until today we continue to test 😉 There are things that have not changed since then, and I do not mean the clear physique.
Over time we did not lose the passion and curiosity about the trip, We have always agreed on this aspect. 10 years after the interrail that marked us so much, and from other trips together and separately, we left our beautiful Barcelona at the end of the 2003. We went to travel through the great playground for a year and three months: A one-way ticket to Nepal led us to tour part of Asia with the camera and backpacks, which came back loaded with experiences that extended us.
We continue to accumulate experiences for the backpack of living and carrying the camera on the shoulder, such are the passions.
We arrived in Mexico, the Yucatan Peninsula in the 2007
What brings us to Mexico and what do we do here?
It was during the trip through Asia that we decided to continue walking around the world, so we look for possibilities to work in a foreign country, which took us in 2005 to the Dominican Republic, and in 2007 to Mexico. This meant starting to work in the tourism sector from the 2005, where we do not find a true passion for travel in the sector, but we do have the necessary experience to create our own travel company.
We are dedicated to organizing customized trips in Southeast Mexico: Riviera Maya, Yucatan Peninsula and Chiapas
Since the year 2017 we made it more difficult and decided to take a leap and start on our own, so here we are involved in this wonderful adventure of working on our illusions. We usually say that this work is the reflection of our traveling soul united to the knowledge and love for this land and its people.
The Shortest Way to the Mayan World It is a blog made from the traveling passion and the unwritten law of "helping each other with information to walk the path". Hopefully our experience in these lands will help you to better enjoy this wonderful corner of the world.
The blog collects information from the Yucatan Peninsula, Chiapas and Belize, getting closer to the best corners, knowing the customs of the places, their stories, delving into the Mayan culture, walking among its landscapes and its people.
The shortest way to the Mayan World offers you a local experience with a traveling look.
Living as a foreigner in another culture is a much deeper and intrinsic type of journey. In the Yucatan Peninsula we have found our home, we feel this land as our home. Living in another culture is still a great motivation and university for us, the trip always continues.
The fact of continuing to learn, lived experiences and loved ones are the great treasures that always go in our backpack. With desire to continue sharing the path of living. Better good than bad, right?
We wish you a good way,
"The shortest way to know yourself is to go around the world" Manuel Leguineche, from his book The Shortest Path (1978).
