Life in Travel is a way of life.
It is the desire for travel, emotions and adventure. It is search, without break, to bring to fulfilment our dreams. It is the will to explore the unknown, not to stop, not to fear the unexplored. It is inspiration and suggestion, it is love for nature and for our wonderful planet. It is sharing.
Life in Travel is, above all, a bicycle touring travel blog. Born in 2007, since then it has sought, through the passion of its authors, to spread the culture of slow and sustainable tourism, because there is nothing more satisfying than discovering the world from the slow and privileged point of view of the saddle. Advice, stories, itineraries and routes ... over the years these pages have helped hundreds of thousands of people to plan and organize the next cycle adventure through more than 3000 articles.
I was born in the mountains and, like most boys, I started my "sports career" with football. A knee injury made me discover the bicycle that has since become an inseparable companion. After a few years of exploring the trails of my Trentino with the MTB I directed attention to other destinations and it was almost natural to choose a territory similar to my homeland for the first big trip: Patagonia! After several European raids, I took advantage of a precarious job and a dissatisfying life to fling myself at the antipodes for a year of Working Holiday in Australia, ended with two months of cycling in New Zealand. As soon as I was back home, the mocking destiny wanted me to meet one girl with the illness of the Journey to the terminal state (this is the one you find below) ... and then after a couple of years we adventured on the great journey to the east: ten months by bike in South East Asia. The return to a "normal" life was traumatic and the perfect care was new travels, including Norway, the Apennines, Morocco, the Andes and South Africa and Lesotho, always waiting for the next dream to be realized.
Born crazy, improvised climber (not social!) and bicycle traveller by profession, I love to enjoy life on the shores of Lake Iseo after six years spent wandering around Trentino! I am a bit like Cyrano and I have been travelling sick for many years now. After a burnt youth listening to noise (as my parents called it!) and playing volleyball, I decided it was time to turn the page and in 2009 I left for New Zealand where I spent five months discovering the islands. The strange cases of life introduced me to Leo, a cyclo-traveller with whom we started a new great adventure on two wheels pedalling for 10 months in Southeast Asia ... but this has already been told by him! In addition to Norway, the Apennines and the other trips we cycled on the Alps and in Albania.
The bicycle is freedom and when I do not use it, I miss it like air while the journey is a beautiful disease from which I hope I will never recover.
