Pacomaja is a non-commercial website offering travel stories from all over the world. We want to share with our readers the endless and fascinating diversity of people and living things, landscapes and artefacts, cultures and religions, customs and rituals, sounds and emotions, smells and tastes, colours and contrasts from all over the world.
The more we learn about this world, the more humble and respectful it makes us, and the more hopeful and optimistic at the same time. We sincerely hope this kaleidoscope of experiences will invoke in our readers the same enthusiasm as it has done to us.
You can make your choice by selecting a tile in the alphabetical list or by clicking a pictogram on the world map. In addition, satellite images of all locations are at your fingertips while reading. Just click the hyperlinks in the text.
