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.

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.
