The inspiring Fujisan adventure

After I decided to travel to Japan, hiking on Mount Fuji has become a must. It’s located in Honshu Island and is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776m (12,3897ft).

Your personal trash

As consumers I believe it’s our responsibility to make better choices when we buy products and consume resources. There is a thought that keeps running into my head for some time now : trash and waste. For the first time, we are capable of producing more than we actually need. There is a huge surplus of useless products, which we… Read more →

Semimarathon in Italy

First time to Italy, I run a semimarathon in Bari, a small city in the south of… Read more →
