What started out as a post break-up get-away to Guatemala has turned into a fantastic travel blog that is centered around hitchhiking, vagabonding and living cheap. Camera in hand Karsten shows us parts of the world and sides of people we never knew existed.
Gmateus is the Insta account of Gabriela, a girl who travels the world and documents her travels in a unique way. Although it may be argued Gabriela’s subject matter is somewhat cliché, we think her perspective and eye for architecture and symmetry is a must see travel blog!
