A TRAVEL philosophy
At first, we drive down the marked road which brings us to the the “favorites”, according to Le Routard, or “must see”, according to LonelyPlanet. This road is used by the majority of travelers who seek to quickly discover the most beautiful sites quickly.
Then on this road, we identify a secondary route that looks nice. We planned to walk this way because it was described in a forum. We are almost alone now, it’s a beautiful journey off the beaten path allowing us to avoid the hubbub of tourists and see the true country!
But finally on this secondary route, we find a little path that sinks into a totally unknown region. All our philosophy is based on this little path! Everything is different here: the encounters become more authentic, the landscape wilder, and the exploration makes simple things more beautiful. We start losing ourselves without knowing where we will sleep next night. Freedom is total …
We improvise according to meetings, weather and landscapes!
But if OunTravela provides us with the “little path” and everybody drives the same, we lose the goal! Therefore Ountravela only brings you secondary routes, often a loop of 12 days not to retrace your steps. It’s up to you then to find “little paths” on site. The destinations we offer are still not very touristic and well preserved. You will find thousands of little trails!
Therefore we refrain ourselves from providing too many details in our maps, in order to let your inspiration break through.
Let’s GO !
