TO VISIT ALL THE COUNTRIES ON THE WORLD, AND THEN TO DIE HAPPY...
I'm Luís Garcia, born in Portugal, probably with the genes of the ancient Portuguese navigators and, like them, immensely curious to explore and experience this world as much as possible.
To travel! To change countries!
To be forever someone else,
With a soul that has no roots,
Living only off what it sees!
To belong not even to me!
To go forward, to follow after
The absence of any goal
And any desire to achieve it!
This is what I call travel.
But there’s nothing in it of me
Besides my dream of the journey.
The rest is just land and sky.
Fernando Pessoa, 20-9-1933
