Mongolia "For being the first country I visited that forced me to learn how to deal with discomfort and to get by with minimum conditions necessary to existence."
HOW DID BERG OUTDOOR
GET INTO THE SKETCH?
Luís charmed everyone with his uncomplicated and low-cost style of travel. In order to grow the project needed promotion by word-of-mouth, he would have to find some partners to help.
"I was in Hong Kong when a friend told me about the brand. I emailed Berg Outdoor in the summer of 2014 to explain what the World Sketching Tour project was about in the hope that they would have room for me. I received a positive response and at the end of the same year, while traveling to India, I received my first clothes and backpacks. The help I received from Berg Outdoor was crucial. A week before traveling to New Zealand I received all the winter clothes that made the trip comfortable, without this equipment the trip would have been impossible. Besides the comfort and privilege of using the products while traveling, I like to promote this Portuguese brand to other travelers. In addition to what I can tell them, they perceive the quality of the materials. " – Luis Simões
Luis found his love during his adventure and now they travel through South America spreading the project together.
