Leaving everything to cycle around the world?
I’ve heard this question quite often in the last couple of months. And even though people’s comments made me doubt myself many times, every day I’m more convinced that this is the right choice: this is what I really want to do!
I’m not leaving anything – I’m going to go get it!
I like doing sports to disconnect from everyday thoughts, and I also like travelling, nature and going out with my friends. The sea and reading relax me. I love to talk about deep, meaningful things to expand my way of thinking. And I can´t wait for Fridays to arrive to have lunch with my family!
I need to feel that every day gives me something new, that each and every one of them was important in the process of building my own identity. I want to learn from what life offers us, to travel to remote places where few people have ever gone and to meet people with experiences and thoughts completely different from mine. I want to get to know who I really am, and day by day work on my most important project: myself!

““Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else … Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.”
―Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
