Dynjandi waterfall: pearl of the WestFjords

In Isafjordur it is considered the most beautiful waterfall of Iceland and it seems a bit exaggerated when you hear it for the first time, but you understand they may be right as soon as you find yourself standing at the feet of the the majestic Dynjndi waterfall. Hidden in the middle of some of […]

My 2016 in people!

2016: what a year!!!!! From the latin vibes of Mexico and Cuba to the African style beautiful chaos of Jamaica, from the Arctic sceneries of Greenland and Iceland to the Balkans, from the magic of Sarajevo to the good vibes of Belgrade, the kindness of Kosovo and Macedonia, and the return to Rome to finally […]

Hvala, Sarajevo (Thank you, Sarajevo)!

It is difficult to say goodbye to Sarajevo. Sarajevo has a great energy level that makes you get attached to it after the first stroll in town. You immediately know there is something special in town. This is not a capital like any other in Europe and probably in the world; this is a capital […]

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 […]

A day at school in Greenland

  It was the first day of school in Kulusuk yesterday. I had the pleasure to visit the local school and attend the ceremony to welcome the new kids starting their school career. This year only one new kid is starting the school. He arrived, dressed in the national dress, together with his grandmother and […]

Whale hunting in Greenland

What a day here in ‪Kulusuk‬!  Today around 8pm a voice got spread that a pilot whale and a dolphin got caught and killed, somewhere 4 hour away by boat in the open sea by some local fishermen and hunters. Together with my Greenlandic friends Naja and Suuluaraq we went to the harbour and found […]

A boat ride with the the Inuits: Arctic adventure!

Greenland, the biggest island in the world, has a population of barely 57000 people, widely sparse on its massive empty frozen surface. There are no roads connecting the tiny villages where Greenlandic people live. The only way to move around is by plane, helicopter, boat, or, in winter and for shorter distances, by dog sledging […]

Greenland, at the edge of the Wild!

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 […]

Summer 2016: Destination Greenland!

My Summer 2016 will see the coming true of one of my oldest dreams: visiting Greenland! And lucky me, I won’t be there only for few hours or days, like most of the people do when flying from Iceland, but I will be spending an entire summer there, living and working in Kulusuk, a small […]

I love you, Playa Del Carmen!

There is something about Playa del Carmen that captures you forever. The story is known by now. I arrived in Playa del Carmen in December to stay for a day before heading to Central America and there you go, I got stacked there for 5 months. There is one question people have kept asking me […]

Jamaica, where to start?

  What do I know about Jamaica? Before this trip, I knew Bob Marley, reggae and rasta concepts, weed plantations and not much more. Jamaica was one of those mythical lands that belongs to our imagination, full of stereotyped images that makes us love a place more for what it represents than for how it […]

How to travel cheap in Cuba

Traveling cheap and Cuba seem two concepts that cannot be put together in the same sentence, as since Cuba has started to adopt the double currency, the CUC for the tourists ad the CUP for the Cubans (1 CUC is 25 CUP and it is more or less 1 USD), traveling around the country has […]

Welcome to La Havana, Cuba!

You need many hours to understand L’Habana and get used to it. The city is not chaotic, ma it has its own rules that look like non sense to the traveler who doesn’t know anything about it. First of all f them, the weird money issue, the CUC, also called Convertible pesos, that has the […]

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 […]

Playa del Carmen best kept secret

Just outside Playa Del Carmen, one of the most touristic places of the Riviera Maya, there is an oasis of peace, good energy, great people and magic vibes. It is a untouched world far away from the chaos of the tourist mass you have downtown. No tourists come here. No groups. Nobody posing and nobody […]

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 […]
