guide me to by Malu Neves Instagram

I remember when Malu sent me a text message asking my opinion about her latest project. That was back in mid 2019.


Guide me to the blog was taking shape. In the most sophisticated and well written  way. A space where Malu could finally share her talents and passions. Writing, traveling, photographing, exploring the world and finally being able to share her encounters.

Digitally she carried on as much as she could and her Instagram account took a step ahead of her blog in keeping her closer to connections faster than her subsequently posts.

A perfect balance.

Three years have gone by, they now live in bellissima Florence and her work and daily life are true pleasure to watch how she shares through very entertaining stories and posts.

Lest you imagine what she has in store for the coming months with travelling more flexible.

I very much enjoy the lightness on Ingrid’s work. She takes you around the world with her images in the most delicate way.
Here is an extract from her About.

Hi, I am Ingrid. I am a photographer, journalist, and videographer and I create global culinary stories. My work revolves around food because I love how it brings together people from all walks of life – and I want to tell the stories they like to share. It’s also the perfect excuse to be on the road non-stop. In the past years I dined with local coconut farmers in Sri Lanka, tasted cactus in Palm Springs, went foraging with a Michelin chef in the Faroe Islands, roamed the premises of Blue Hill at Stone Barns, and harvested olives in Catalonia.

When I’m not traveling, you can find me at home in Hilversum – a town near Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

It has been out over a week now but just this afternoon I sat down to browse through Explore Parts Unknown
Created in collaboration with Roads & Kingdoms and CNN, Explore Parts Unknown is bound to become the new digital encyclopedia to the world of travel, culture and food.

At “Parts Unknown,” we try to show how other people live, to encourage people to walk in others’ shoes. To that end, we’ve created a new digital experience where we will tell more stories, take deeper dives, and take you further into the world of the show.

As episodes are aired, the site is updated so you can have extra contents, more detailed interviews and stories of each location.
It is priceless. I’m not kidding when I say I spent over an hour reading some bits, without realising time passing by.
Pictures are stunning, writing is impecable.

You have short videos, recipes, storytelling to name a few. One section is geniusly called “KNOW – you’ll want to read this” and you rest assured you will click on it right away!

One of the things that I try to do with “Parts Unknown” is to show how other people live, to hopefully encourage them to go out and look at the world, to walk in someone else’s shoes for awhile. To that end, we’re launching a new digital experience to complement the show: “Explore Parts Unknown.” This space gives us the opportunity to dive deeper into locations that we’ve visited—we’re going to be launching original content around every PU episode, both past and future—allowing me to do more of what I do: tell stories. If this inspires people to follow their curiosity around the world, and get their passports renewed, then we’ve done our job. – Anthony Bourdain

A couple of hours after it was announced on Bourdain’s Instagram profile, I googled to check what it was being said…..there were shockinly more than 12 articles posted already!
Yes it is a big deal and it will only get bigger. I’m already addicted to UnknowParts Instragram account as well! Everyday a new photo with a short story.
