Mostar and the bridge upon two worlds

The road that goes from Sarajevo to Mostar is probably one of the most beautiful of the entire Balkan region. As soon as you go out of the capital, you enter in a region of stunning mountains and beautiful river sceneries that, in the colours of Autumn, shine of splendour at every turned bend. It […]

Flying over Iceland

  I am often asked why I do love Iceland so much and what keeps me coming back here over and over again since six years, now. Well, my way to reply is by showing you some stunning pictures of Iceland from above . I thin it is enough to understand the unicity of this […]

Knud Rasmussen Glacier, King of the Arctic Ocean!

  It is one of the most majestic sights you can see in Greenland, or maybe in the world. Finding yourself in front of a Glacier is always a very unique experience, often difficult to describe in words, because it has to do with that feeling of being small compared to the splendour of Mother […]

Greenland and the essence of life

  There is a painting in the hotel where I work, here in Kulusuk, East Greenland, representing an Inuit sited outside his or her tent contemplating a sun setting on a bay full of icebergs. The first time I watched that painting I barely noticed it. On the very first day we met, Naja, my […]

Vivere in Groenlandia, essenza di essere

C’è un quadro nell’hotel dove lavoro, qua a Kulusuk, in Groenlandia, che rappresenta un’Inuit seduta davanti alla sua tenda contemplando un sole che tramonta sul mare e sugli icebergs della sua terra. La prima volta che avevo visto questo quadro non gli avevo dato molto importanza, né tantomeno attenzione. Naja, la mia amica Groenlandese, il […]

Greenland, at the edge of the Wild!

I think I just reached the most beautiful places on Planet Earth. Greenland leaves you speechless already when you see it appearing at the horizon, from the plane. It seems to be reaching a lost island, a paradise lost in time and space, still untouched, pure and wild. When you land and you put your […]

The Valley of Viñales, Cuba at its best!

Stepping outside of L’Habana, Cuba eclectic and hectic capital, means stepping into another Cuba, rural and ancient where it seems the time stopped and the world has been left there as it was at the time of the revolution, at the time of the colonization, or at the beginning of time. It is here you […]

Tulum, Maya ruins on the cliffs of heaven

Probably the best and most beautiful spot of the famous Riviera Maya of Mexico, Tulum is definitely a must when visiting the area. And not only for its white sandy and palm tree beaches that will make you forget the tourist mayhem of Playa del Carmen an lead you to a still unspoiled and untouched […]

Cenotes of Yucatan: live from the underworld

There is something magic when entering a real cenote, in a cave, in Yucatan. The impression you have is that it is pretty much how entering a parallel universe, an underworld that allows you to live the hot, humid and noisy world to step into the underground, into a cave opened on the top where […]

My 1st impressions of Myvatn

My first walk in Reykjalið, the place where I will be living for the next five months has been a very quiet one. As soon as you step out of the hotel you don´t hear anything at all, just the sound of a lonely car coming form far away, if it is coming. The landscape […]

Road trip across Iceland, Day 3, Seydisfjordur- Akureyri

That part of Iceland that goes from Seydisfjordur, in the far East, to Akureyri, in North Iceland, is certainly one of the most breathtaking scenery you can visit not only in Iceland, but in the world. Leaving Seydisfjordur on Route 93, connecting the tiny village to Egilstadir, the biggest town in the area, is a […]

Road trip across Iceland: Day 1, Reykjavik-Hofn

Definitely one of the richest itinerary to drive through in Iceland, the road from Reykjavik to Hofn can only astonish you if, combined with with the Golden Circle, is driven all in one day. So much to see, too much maybe to be handled in 12 hours drive, while dealing with a cold and windy […]
