Marina Nefedova

Marina's idols as a child were Tour Heyerdahl, Jacques Yves Cousteau, Francis Drake and Hodja Nasreddin. To see with her own eyes all those places that she read about in books - that's a dream that was worth realizing. Over the past 15 years, Marina has travelled to 52 countries, caught fish in the headwaters of the Nile in Central Africa, met the dawn in the Himalayas, and dived into the cenotes in the Yucatan.  She is passionate about energy practices of different peoples, yoga and water sports and in her spare time is very fond of boating around the Balearic Islands with old friends, where she lived for 2 years before moving to the Netherlands. Marina is involved in modern cinematography at a university in Amsterdam and is sure that every trip opens a new door to opportunities, and sometimes more than one.

Inflation has been at one […]

Switzerland in general and Geneva in particular always stand a little apart from the well-trodden tourist trails.

10 things I wish I knew before going to South Sudan

It isn’t easy to imagine a person who suddenly decided to take a ride to South Sudan as a tourist. The place is very specific. So much so that even the colonization of this part of the world was conditional. On the other hand, you may have already travelled over a hundred countries, and the […]
