The Route of Gods

Via degli Dei, literally the Route of Gods, is a 130 km long route consisting of paved and gravel roads, stretches of asphalt, and windy trails passing through the Appennines. It starts in Piazza Maggiore in Bologna and arrives in Piazza Signoria in Florence, Italy: it retraces an ancient historical road, Military Flaminia, built 2000 years ago during the Roman period.
The itinerary can be divided in 5 or more legs, but ultratrail runners complete Via degli Dei in just 12 hours. We arrived at destination in four days, and proud.

Adelmo Massola, wave after wave

Water is a thought. A reflection, a dancing game that always move. It has different colours, it leaves trails, it runs away and it doesn’t care about what happens around itself.

During the flight it won’t bother you too much, and you can cheerfully watch a disaster movie, where all the crash scenes have been cut out.

A photographic guide to Myanmar

You should know upfront, this is not a guide to Myanmar. If you need general information for traveling in the country, head to Wikitravel and Travelfish: these websites are reliable and up to date.

Thailand: the land of smiling

My best friend and I wanted to make a trip together, to explore a different place, distant and exotic and mainly we wanted to disconnect from the usual city routine. No sooner said than done! In a few days we bought the flight ticket for Thailand, an ideal destination to get away from all and to regenerate ourselves.

A city in continuous movement. With our backpacks we walked around the city for three days, remaining nicely hit by the incredible energy we could breathe.
