Excitement and pure joy. 

Which country or location most inspires you?
Paris, or anywhere where nature is overwhelming.

Southeast Asia because of the food, the colours, the buddhist chants, the massages, the markets, the tranquility of the countryside and the chaos of the cities.

Go see the sunrise at Xochimilco canals and then have breakfast at La Chinampa del Sol where Arca Tierra organises the tour. You will forget that you are in Mexico city and experience an unforgettable view and cinematic moment.
