Africa

Merhaba! Hello! My name is Kareem.
I am 14 years old. I love football, sailing and fishing. My favorite movie is "Big" by Tom Hanks. I live in a beautiful city in Egypt, called Aswan. Aswan is in the south of Egypt near Luxor. Do you want to know more about Luxor, Aswan, Egypt and Africa? Then, join me on my journey to discover the Continent of gems. "Why would a 14-year- old boy decide to travel across Africa?", you might ask. I will tell you why In 2019, I met a friend from Kenya. He showed me pictures of his city, Mombasa. I had never heard about it. It's a fascinating city with great beaches. On that day, I decided to explore my continent.. my home… Africa. Together, we will find hidden places and cities all over the continent and we will learn about its rich history and bright future.

Konnichiwa! Hello, friends! My name is Yuna. I am a 14-year- old girl from Osaka, Japan. I come from a big family, 4 brothers and 3 sisters. I am the middle child. Being a middle child was never easy. You don't really know if people should treat you as a baby or as an adult. So, I found my comfort in video games and met many friends online. One of them was Dae. Dae lives in Busan, South Korea. I and Dae speak for hours every day… mostly gossiping.") One day, Dae told me that she was going to go to Brunei. I though it's a city in South Korea but turned out to be a Country in Asia. I was so embarrassed and shocked. I didn't know anything about a country in my continent. I decided to travel around my magnificent continent discovering each spot from the east to the west. I can't wait… can you?

Europe
Europe

Salut! Hello! This is louis. If you want to pronounce my name right, don't pronounce the "s". Did you guess my country?........ Oui, it's France. I am 16 years old and I love languages and eating Pasta. And no, I don't like eating frogs. I am sorry, aunt liza… but I really don't. I would like to be a chef when I grow up. On my 15th birthday, I decided to travel around Europe to taste famous dishes. But I realized that each meal has history behind it. Each little detail in the dish tells the story of a culture. Are you hungry for stories from Europe? Are you willing to swim in "la Manche" and hike through the black forest for a delicious bite of folk tales? Well, then "bon appétit".

North america

North America

Howdy? I am Sophia from Austin, Texas. I am 15 years old. I love Ice Cream and taking photos. I also like meeting from all over….. well…. Texas. As you know, Texas is a huge state. I haven't got out of it…. yet. But I am planning to change this. I will explore the whoooole world… well, let's start with baby steps. I will travel around North America first. But why? I believe North America is one of the most versatile places on Earth. It has a diversity of all groups and traces of old history. I will learn about American cities and states. Then, I will cross the borders to start my journey across the continent. But something is missing…. Food? Check. Water? Check. Good camera? Check. Ah yes, good company. I need some friends to travel along with me. Shall we go?

South america
South America

Hola! Hi there! "Maria is my name and travelling around South America is my game!" Neat, isn't it? As you can guess, I love poetry. I also enjoy drawing and painting at sunset in my lovely city, Popayan. Have you ever heard of it? If not, then you are in luck because I will not stop talking about it, LOL. Popayan is a small city in Colombia. It's a destination for those who want to stay away from the touristic crowded places. But it's not the only secret place in South America. There are many more. Are you curious to know? Well, stay tuned as we will explore together the lands of dancing, revolution and love. We will dive into the Atlantic Ocean and climb Aconcagua mountain. The question is… Are you ready?

Australia

Australia

Jingeri! Hey mate! My name is Yarran. I am 15 years old and I live in Townsville, Australia. If you are wondering what is "jingeri". It's "Hello" in Aboriginal language. I am proud to be one the Aboriginal people in Australia. My people have been living here for 50,000 years. I love surfing and swimming. I can't imagine my life without the warm sun and golden sand. Townsville is a very beautiful city in Queensland. However, I haven't really got out of it yet. Last year, I was sitting with my grandfather and he told me something that I will never forget "Australia is the paradise of our ancestors. If you want to learn more about them, follow their traces." So that's exactly what I am planning to do…. I will explore every inch of my beloved continent. Can't wait to see what I will find. Join me on my unforgettable journey.
