We're a Portuguese family of three - Filipe the father, Luísa the mother and almost-five-year-old daughter Pikitim - embracing our biggest adventure together: a 12 months round the world trip focusing on Pacific islands... and around.
Filipe is a travel columnist and photographer, travelling the world in search of stories and people that give life to his stories. In 2004/2005 he travelled around the world for the first time - the journey took him 14 months to came back home, but in fact he never stopped travelling since then. He is the founder and editor of travel website Alma de Viajante (meaning something like "Traveler's Soul").
Luísa is a journalist with fourteen years of experience in a major daily newspaper in Portugal. She decided it was time to stop writing about economic crises and just quit her job to travel as a family for one year.
Pikitim is the nickname of our four-and-a-half little girl, and the reason why our online diary is called Diário da Pikitim. We strongly believe that the road is the best school of life and that this trip will give Pikitim precious little tools for her growth. We expect this trip to be the perfect seed for a tolerant, caring, responsible and insightful citizen.
