STORIES

from my travels to every country in the world

Minutes after midnight, on December 6th, 2019 Alvaro Rojas became the youngest Spaniard to Visit Every Country in the World. A feat only 200 people in History had achieved before.

This is the compilation of stories and pictures from every single country. From his detention in Afghanistan to almost drowning in Zanzibar or ran over by a car in Congo. Castaway in remote Pacific islands, sneaking into war-zones and navigating some of the most corrupt borders in the World.

An arduous, but fruitful journey inspired by a newspaper headline. “More people have been to Space than visited Every Country in the World.” Having visited 40 countries, he was instantly hooked. A few years later, when the time was right, he took the leap and quit his cozy corporate job as a CFO in an Oil and Gas company to pursue his life goal. Why go through all of these crazy adventures? Why spend the money, the time, and risk it all?

What you'll find:

  • Travel memories, fun anecdotes, scary experiences and best and worst moments.
  • Travel tips and inspiration. Highlights, brief itineraries and a unique window to every country in the World.
  • Personal life and circumstances. Why? How? When?
  • Lessons learned on the journey to every country.
  • Not a Guidebook. I don't want to ruin your own fun!

Getting to know Álvaro personal story and his experience visiting every country in the world has been fun and enriching! Totally in love with the book, the pictures are espectacular and love that every page is the same high quality color and paper!! I find myself going back and writing down some of Álvaro’s quotes in my notebook!! Definitely the perfect gift for some of my friend’s bdays coming up!

    This is the best book I have read not just about travel but ever. It has such beautiful pictures and it has been teaching me so many new things about so many different countries

  4. Angelo Tzatzo

    Wow you guys this book is amazing. I have been looking forward for it to coming and I was so impatient and kept us asked Alvaro when it would come like it would never come ! This book really is very special in its own ways and it is a book unlike any other book that I have read(about traveling)!It contains personal experiences, life quotes, travels advice from THE EXPERT and so so many stories that want to be read by me now as I am writing you this review. I urge you guys to buy it if you haven’t until now ! Like what are you doing ?? Why are you waiting??? It will give you a motivation to achieve something unachievable whether it be about traveling or someone’s personal goals! It is very speacial and I guarantee you that you won’t find a similar book out there like this one,because I have read and another book from someone who had been to every country but that book didn’t provide information about every country separately. However this one won’t disappoint !😉

    Alvaro has been an inspiration personally and for so many people around the world over the last few years. Having all the best stories in this book is a great way to learn about history, borders, people and remote places. Alvaro perfectly captures what it feels like to want to travel and enjoy every moment of your trip. This book will give you the push to see the world all by yourself!

    Un libro que te permite viajar sin moverte de casa, tiene ese parte personal e íntima que no se encuentra en ninguna guía de viajes. Merece mucho la pena tenerlo en la mesilla de noche.

  22. Glyn

    Really enjoyable read. Great to reminisce about places I’ve been to or wander about how I’ll get to those places I’ve not yet been. Interesting reflecting on different experiences in places or ways of getting there. Always great hearing travel stories & wanderlusts from others especially a good guy like A

  23. Carla

    I was looking forward to buying this book because I wanted like a guide with all the countries on it and written by someone who has travelled to every single one so I thought that that was the perfect book for me since I like all this travelling thing and want to work as a flight attendant when I grow up.
    I like the way you tell the stories, they are great and also the pictures, they are awesome.
    Thanks Alvaro for making this possible.
    Hi from Spain.
