An Icelandic journey into No Man’s Land

We live in a fast paced society, where the action of walking slows us down. Nature never hurries.
Film maker Davide Calafà, along with two friends, undertook a six days hike into the wild, carrying only what was strictly necessary to explore and document the incredible landscapes of Icelandic inland.

Bali: an extraordinary experience

And the answer might be: to travel, to fly away. You sure? You can cross the vast oceans on a jet plane, but your soul illness will still be on your side, aisle seated. 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. This article won’t even help you to reach the farthest and most reclusive areas of the country, as it focuses on the well known touristic areas of Yangon, Inle Lake, Mandalay and Bagan.

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.
We landed in Bangkok and suddenly we found ourselves thrown into a teeming capital of people, lights, sounds, fragrances, skyscrapers, taxi and tuk tuk everywhere around us. 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.

Briançon: four days of pure pleasure

An another amazing weekend dedicated to climb has just ended. Direction Briançon, beautiful medieval town, Unesco heritage, located at 1500 mt above the sea level and place rich in crags. I went to France with a group of young guys excited for this great adventure which provided a four-day basic climbing course with Nicola Sartori as a mountain guide from Verona and his wife Claudia. A preparatory course to climb no longer in top rope, therefore with the rope already secured from above, but bringing it up from first. Adrenaline, anxiety, happiness and a bit of fear were almost palpable.
