Hi, this is Eduard.
PS: You might have wondered who’s this little guy is and what he has to do with travelling.
Meet Appo, the travelling penguin!
Appo, Apolodor by his full name, was a circus penguin and a great singer to boot. Not only that, but he was the main character of my favourite comic book as a child; his adventures in trying to reach his family in Labrador always made me dream of faraway lands, blessed with strange and fascinating names like Mozambique, Cabo Verde or Tibet. With short and delightfully rhyming lyrics, Gellu Naum made Romanian kids of my generation dream of travels and bought them misty-eyed moments of magic. How not to cry when after navigating the globe almost twice over in search of Labrador, Apolodor finally meets his family?
While I haven’t yet been to Mozambique or many of the other places he’s seen, Apolodor’s story and voice inspired me when I was contemplating the soul of this site. Appo is my humble homage to Gellu’s Apolodor, to carefree and passionate travelling.
Let Appo be your guide on your travels here and like him, don’t stop wandering!
