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.
Three kinds of e-books are on offer. Firstly, we have day-by-day stories we call Reisverhalen. Then there are Reiscursiefjes which are more or less short stories. Finally, you can enjoy Fotoreportages, which mostly consist of photos with some texts added.
All together you have access to more than 80 e-books – more than 1 800 pages to read, more than 6 000 photos to discover. And these numbers keep on growing, because every now and then new e-books will be published.
Furthermore, each e-book comes in three versions. On a desktop or a laptop, you might prefer the pdf version with full screen rendering of text and image. On a smartphone or a tablet you might prefer the epub version, as this is the true e-book format. Finally, when you intend to have some texts translated from Dutch, the epub-light version might come in handy, because there will be no photos interfering with the process.
Whatever your preference, you can make your choice by selecting a tile in one of our alphabetic lists or by clicking a pictogram on one of our maps. Having done that you can choose between the three versions.
Don’t forget satellite images of all locations are at your fingertips while reading. Just click on the hyperlinks in the text.
Pacomaja has no commercial involvements. We don’t show any advertisements or commercial links. We respect your privacy in accordance with the European General Data Protection Regulation. We do not gather a single bit of personal information from our visitors and surely do not convey their data to third parties.
Feel free to stream or download our e-books without any cost or obligation as far as personal or educational use is intended. However, commercial use of our e-books, texts or photos, or any other form of dissemination to the public is not allowed.
