The Supertramp

Me in Antarctica fulfilling my dream to be in the last frontier

I am Veronica (Vero Supertramp). Everyone asks me if ‘Supertramp’ is from Alexander Supertramp (Christopher McCandless) or the British band of the same name. But no. Although I pretty much like both, the band and MacCandless’ story, the name actually comes from biology and ecology where a Supertramp species is any type of being that’s in constant change of environment. Us humans have been in constant movement for ages, and I have been moving around a lot too: from my homeland Venezuela to Brazil (where my family now lives), to the Netherlands where I am creating my own path. I’ve also lived for shorter periods of time in Norway (for a whole year) and the USA (for some months).

For a couple of years I had a blog with the same name as this one, Vero Supertramp, but due to my forgetful demeanour I never learned the password I created and I lost it with no possibility of recovering it. That’s why this is my second – and hopefully successful – attempt of blogging. I will try my best to pass most of the content FROM the previous blog to this one so I can enjoy remembering about my adventures and the followers (if I get lucky and have some) can take a look at the places I’ve been and also know a little bit more about me, and can witness my progress in photography.

You can also follow my adventures in Instagram account vero.supertramp.

Cheers!

Vero

  1. to go back to Christopher McCandless for a moment, I am currently reading a book about a woman who went on a similar trek in the Pacific Northwest in the United States. It is very good and if you enjoyed Into The Wild, or that type of adventure story I think you may enjoy this. It is called Wild, a journey from Lost to Found by Cheryl Strayed. I also think it is to be a film.

    1. I do enjoy a lot this kind of stories, mostly if they are based on true events. Thank you for the recommendation, I will look for it in Amazon, and tell you how my reading goes! 🙂

  3. Hi Vero!

    I have just published an eBook on Amazon entitled “Budget Traveler’s Guide to Manila, Philippines.” The book is an experience-based guide to traveling on a budget in Metro Manila for backpackers, travelers, and culture seekers.

    If you are interested in the book, you can download it through this link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KNN4ZGE

    If it happens that you know backpackers who are interested and are planning to travel to the Philippines, I will appreciate if you will refer the book.

    Big thanks!

  4. Hello Veronica, I just stumbled upon your blog via the Weekly Photo Challenge and I am very happy I found you.
    First because your blog is amazing and your photos are stunning. How couldn’t I follow the Supertramp?
    Secondly because your life path has crossed some of mine. I am Brazilian and I live in Amsterdam. So we have some commonalities here. How cool is that?
    Looking forward to seeing more.
    Lucile

    1. I’m so happy that we’re crossing paths through my blog! I think that we should meet for a coffee, maybe? Although I don’t live in Amsterdam, I spend most of my time there due to work. So maybe we should meet up after work? My email is vero.alz.85@gmail.com! Looking forward to meeting you!
