Matrix-Q Travel, Culture & Leisure


The Matrix-Q Travel Club is the initiative of our founder, Luis Daniel Maldonado Fonken, as he spends several years living abroad and traveling, organizing private expeditions, research, and providing services as a consultant, coach, also supporting organizations and entrepreneurs with his services.

Luis has been living abroad and traveling since 1996/7, also at a young age (3-4) lived in Austria, and while living in Peru he constantly moved between locations. Luis has the heart of a traveler.

Between 1997-2003, his travel destinations will include Europe and SouthAmerika Southern Pacific Coast. He grounded the first travelers club in 1999, the Travelers-Culture International Association, an NGO dedicated to bringing together world citizens and engaging together in positive impact projects.

We organized gatherings, events, volunteer programs, and a radio program " Travelers on air"

The association got dormant in 2003 when he moved back to Europe, Switzerland, but the club did not. The Lifestyle Travelers club continued, in connection to a private stream of the "Travelers on air" radio, digital audio files shared with a circle of travelers still connected to Luis.

In 2012 Luis was back on the road for a long and decided to recruit assistants to work together on a business and travel project he had. The recruiting program brought him back to meet a number of lifestyle travelers and decided together to re-launch the travel club again. More than 260 lifestyle travelers tried to do the impossible, to coordinate efforts to make a living while living abroad traveling. 1.5 years after the project got discontinued, due to the need for a system that would bring business, travel, adventure, culture, and leisure together.

Between 2013-2016 Luis did organize a number of multidisciplinary archeology expeditions, some days, and others for months, in both Europe and Russia.

The Lifestyle Travelers Club now become a division of the Matrix-Q Ecosystem, a system that supports travel-preneurs: entrepreneurs that live abroad traveling and are dedicated to creating a positive impact.

We also organize travel expeditions and leisure, travel and culture programs.

The Matrix-Q e-Library of Travel-Adventures

For lifestyle travelers an essential resource of information is travel reports, indicating the activities, traits, and eventually also perils at a specific travel destination, or warnings of all sorts, from blocked roads, and natural disasters, to vandals, revolts, strikes, or governments falling, and recently pandemic status.

But the most important travel reports for impact-driven travel-preneurs are both business opportunities, contacts, and positive impact opportunities.

Along his journeys, Luis scouted locations carefully carried a diary and made travel notes or project notes that will be useful for other members of his travel club later. These notes are made together, today, a course for lifestyle travelers, and impact-driven travel-preneurs. To prepare them for all sorts of unexpected, changing conditions to be experienced "on the road". Luis still provides advice to new travelers that aim for such adventures.

Luis published a few books about travel, and most recently about his multidisciplinary archeology expeditions, which have been the source for his field research studies (nature-inspired knowledge and technology of ancient cultures and civilizations), and for his endless curiosity about the diversity of people, cultures, and natural landscapes.

Not all his travel notes and experiences have been published yet. Instead, Luis is organizing expeditions and travel-preneurs training programs yearly. Members of the Matrix-Q Travel Club or Matrix-Q MultiMedia e-Library may request specific information and reports on locations and expeditions.

Among his publications you will find:

  • Travel
  • Lifestyle Travel
  • Travel & Spiritual Journey
  • Ancient cultures and civilizations
  • Multidisciplinary Archeology Expeditions
  • Myth & Legends
  • Costumes, and rituals
  • Ancient philosophy
  • Storytelling

The first publications we are sharing with you now, have been produced by our founder, including travel reports, expeditions, travel games, and lifestyle. Luis continues writing about his travel experiences and adventures, for example from time to time he writes a new chapter of an on-going travel book:

" The Operator and the adventures of Ioras, the Lifestyle-Traveler "

The Netherlands' ancient memories written in stones

The Netherlands has a history of connecting people to nature, community, and the heart of what humans are.

By looking at the past of the Netherlands, at the nicest of its origin, 5000+ years ago, with a heart in harmony with time, life, and nature, we can now look forward to the future.

A future we predict to be made of change, for which balance within and with all and everyone around us defines the outcome of our times. We need to understand our origins first, in the mirror of our present, set the foundations, the groundbreaking moves towards our future.

To understand the unfolding of time, we need to look at our past.

" The Netherlands, you play a role for humanity, you are the heart of this time, on earth. Your clarity, discipline, strength, endurance, creativity, leadership, and entrepreneurship, will decide for most of the earth a future, or not. " ~ LDMF


The Netherlands

We navigated the time realms, traces, and memories in the stones of the Dolmens in the Netherlands. Finding wisdom, knowledge, transitions, ritual, and memories of the past, very well suit the needs of our future. We have been so impressed by our discoveries, and experiences, that we plan to share with you more details about them. As for every person, or community, in the journey of self-discovery, creating a bonding bridge to nature and the cycle of life, this journey, to the locations and sites we have visited, would provide a marvelous experience. Unforgettable, fascinating!

Multidisciplinary Archeology Expeditions

At least once per year the Matrix-Q Ecosystem organizes an expedition dedicated to the study of nature-inspired knowledge and technology of ancient cultures and civilizations.

Luis schedules both private expeditions together with members of the Primordial Games platform and public expeditions with new members.

Destinations scheduled are both, locations where Luis was before, and new expedition destinations.

Along these special journeys, of 3-12 days or more, Luis introduces personally explorers to the art of Multidisciplinary Archeology (Matrix-Q Method), guides tours to natural landscapes, culture, and leisure activities, offers key-note presentations and courses, and organizes volunteer programs or impact-storytelling to create a positive impact at the locations he visits.

Destinations in the Netherlands & Benelux

Luis lives in the Netherlands since 2016. He dedicated 2 intensive years (Sabbatical) to writing new publications, ebooks, and research documentation, from his previous expeditions between 2012-2016.

He grounded in the Netherlands the Matrix-Q Research Institute, aiming to gather a multidisciplinary circle of researchers, leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs, for them together to build a new ecosystem dedicated to creating a positive impact on the world. Between 2018 and 2020 Luis did focus on the development of the Matrix-Q Ecosystem and its first start-ups. In 2020-2022 pivoting the impact of the pandemic, Luis stayed in the Netherlands, and travel expeditions were canceled.

From 2022 on Luis will be on the road again for explorations of a few days to locations in Benelux.

Starting at his actual headquarters in the Netherlands, the city of Rhenen, a location with ancient history, and of great heritage value, for both culture and nature. Luis will schedule private tours, including special training to unique destinations, and traveler's gatherings.
