THE DESOLATED LAND

Next day I was so tired that I decided to stay one more day at the lodge. This lodge is managed by a wonderful Italian couple S.&F and they also managed a school close by. They cook really good Italian food and it is everything homemade. From the lodge you can see...

HEAD OUT OF THE CLOUDS

I arrived in Blantyre at 7am ish. The city was already awake. As usual taxi drivers and vendors tried to sell me something. I always try to look confident and walk straight out of the bus station. If you look a little lost or new to the place is the end. I started to...

THE LAKE OCEAN

IT TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE

It has been a while since I last wrote my blog. A lot of good and bad things happened. I needed time to heal and to get back into myself. I got off the radar in order to have the necessary time to forgive myself. I made many mistakes lately. I just didn’t know how to...

The Baikal lake.

This is an extract of an old diary (over 6 years ago now). This is who I was and what also brought me to who I am now. I thought very carefully if to make it public was the right choice. I never thought I would have an opportunity to do so.  Everyone suffered for...

A paradise inside the hell.

Organising my thoughts is the hardest thing. Writing them almost impossible. Procrastination seems a good way to survive my mental struggles. I get at the end of the day that I have no energy to deal with thoughts. I hate my thoughts. Sometimes they are too...

BEFORE AFRICA

Why Africa

Since I can remember my biggest dream was always to travel across Africa. When I was a child I used to watch on the TV ‘Alle Falde del Kilimanjaro’. It was the only TV program I would watch (except that I used to watch a loads of cartoons too). It was all about...
