eskapo turns four

eskapo just turned four with the mission to document travel and the experience in every journey. each year exploring isolated places, conquering mountains and loving the beaches. but each year was dominated with particular perspective.

the first year was more of the personal aspect and feature of everyday people
the second year was almost endless road trips

the third year was the time in exploring Asian countries and traditions

the fourth year was the celebration of trekking and journeys with other travelers
also on the fourth year i started

El Encuentro - featuring two bloggers and their travel profile. 
Eskapo Mountain Series - a series of treks
