Dream to travel the world is natural, almost intuitive - who hasn't dreamt of it, at least once?
The only way to make it is to decide how to do it and leave: for me it was instinctive, it will be on foot because I've always liked walking, I've been doing it since I can remember and it led me to discover people, facts and incredible stories
Walking, to me, is also synonymous for independence: there are no tanks to fill or roads impossible to travel, you are the one who chooses the pace of the stride, you decide the path to follow and the one to create, if it suddenly stops. Walking is also the figure of slowness, a quality capable of unleashing galaxies of adventure through the patient search for beauty, the true taste of the journey
In this adventure I'll have a fellow, Ezio, who will walk with me step by step, helping me to bring supplies and equipment along the journey. Unfortunately, Ezio won't be able to see the wonderful places we're going to, so I decided to tell him about them, as we go; and while I'm in it, I thought I'd involve you too, sharing stories, places, sensations and impressions that will colour these years
Through us you will be able to make a virtual tour of the world and maybe, hopefully, you will want to join us somewhere, to live with us a little piece of this journey
However, this journey is not only made up of walking feet, but also of helping hands
In these months, I have been surprised, delighted and a little embarrassed to receive help from many of you, I have tried to thank you one by one, but I would also like to do it here, publicly, to try to do justice to the altruistic gesture that you have made and to show you that the dream of a shared path is already taking shape
Put on your good shoes, I am waiting for you
