Hello people. My name is Gian Paulo and I am a brazilian born in Rio de Janeiro.
Since I was a child , maps made me very curious. I was always looking at them , identifying countries , capitals , latitudes and so on.
I also like studying languages and reading geopolitical books.
Those interests took me to visit Middle East and Eurasian countries , as you can check in my VT page.
As I live in a tropical country , with an abundant nature and beauties , my travels are always focused in cultural issues : places with traditions , history and different ways of living than mine. If there´s natural beauty there , it is a credit.
Getting in contact , meeting natives , feel the cultural shock , and learn , learn , learn , this is my goal in travels. As my grandfather (that was a great traveller and my hero) used to say : culture doesnt pay weight excess in your luggage.
