A Journey through Africa to the voice of soul
Explore your visions, live your dreams...let them become true.
Do what you wish to do and don’t ask if it’s useful or trendy, if others like it or find it silly.
If you think that something is good for you, then do it, and you will never regret a missed chance.
Follow your inner voice
Together with African artists that I've met during my bicycle journey from Cape Town to London, we've created NALA artworks.
The Artworks, I will show in exhibitions in Europe (preferably London) and other European Metropolis as well as few Cities in Africa.
The Artwork tells the tale of Little NALA, a eight year old South African girl who is following her dreams, to see what's behind the mountains.
She is currently in Nairobi / Kenya after 14.300 kilometers of cycling.
One day, whilst listening to SADE's song, Sally, NALA was brought to life.

Well guys, if you want and if you are in the mood to support me on my tour – be it as messages, as inspirations, as thoughts, as recommendations, as assistance or whatever you can think of, then you are very welcome here.
Just look here once in a while.

NALA's latest dress from Loja, Ecuador.
The suit was hand sewn by Paulina Salinas, visual artist from Loja, Ecuador.
Today I would like to introduce you to NALA's newest costume.
The typical attire of Saraguro women consists of a round white hat with black dots, a set of earrings; 12 color necklaces; wool overflow; silver pipe and a shirt. In addition a black skirt and sandals or espadrilles.
NALA is very happy about this masterpiece.
Thank you very much, Paulina.

This new NALA Artwork was painted by Wilfrido Lusitande Piaguaje from San Pablo near Shushufindi at the Amazonas in Equador. Wilfrido used more then 180 hours to paint this
amazing artwork with NALA.
Can you see the toucan that is in the painting?
Nala wanted a toucan so badly that she unfortunately didn't see it while she was wandering around in the forest. Although she saw no animals, she felt an inner peace and marveled at every tree and leaf she saw. It was so incredibly interesting and unique to explore this small part of the Amazon. The many colorful butterflies sat on NALA's hand and told her stories about the sloth, the pink dolphins and the bee elf, the smallest bird in the world.
I'll tell you more about the rainforest later.
See you soon
