About Me

"We are like the spider.
We weave our life and then move along in it.
We are like the dreamer who dreams
and then lives inside the dream.
This is true for the entire universe."

Imaginative, free minded, vegetarian. Willing to venture new roads.

I suffer from a light form of what they call sundown syndrome, which basically means my mood swings depending on the amount of sunlight I get. It feels so good to me to catch the sun setting at the end of every day and give order back to the cosmo.

I do have a passion for slow travelling, which turns out to be passion for adventure, wilderness and beautiful minds.

I'm addicted to some scents like the one of sandalwood or the one of fresh mint. New fragrances turn me on and give me inspiration for visiting new places.

Currently settled in the heart of Firenze, sometimes back in my lovely hometown La Spezia.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed up to the small temple on top of Doi Nok and then hiked down through the mesmerizing jungle of Phayao.

Woke up at the cosmic energy celebration chants in Rila mountains.

Lived the daily life in Huesca, next to its cathedral, Castillo de Montearagón and Salto del Roldán.

Entered the boundless palm groves surrounding the city of Zagora.

Teach, Learn, Share

You can't kill time without injuring eternity.

You should own nothing except what you can carry on your back at a dead run.

A single farmhouse which I had not seen before is sometimes as good as the dominions of the King of Dahomey.

Everything that is not given is lost.
