BANANA ECO CAMP and NEW ADVENTURE

It was four weeks ago when I announced that I would have left, and my departure date was just a week later.
I had already said that the plans were not clear and that I would have decided on the go, after three weeks, what I would have done afterwards.
Now that those weeks have passed, I ticked off days from the calendar and I blew my twentyone candles here.
Right in the last post, I told you about how I spent most of my time among chats and the several people who have come and gone here at the Banana Eco Camp, and I thought I might share part of the adventure here. I really hope it will help me remember my experience in the future.

Life at the camp is made of a continuous back and forth of people.
People who travel alone, couples, families,
at the beginning of their trip, in the middle or at the end, exhausted from the weeks of pure adrenaline.
People from all over the world, with every kind of story and luggage.
People so different from one another but that later gather all around the same bonfire and eat at the same table.

Le Ragazze Vaganti | ELEONORA – la serie

E direttamente dalle Azzorre, una nuova storia di ragazze che vagano per il mondo.
La protagonista di oggi è Eleonora, che molti conosceranno come l’autrice di Pain de Route:
Eleonora, 24 anni, italiana dalle misteriose sembianze uzbeche (nessuno ha ancora capito perché).
Mi sto laureando in linguistica teorica e applicata, ho due Erasmus alle spalle, tonnellate di esperienze casuali in ambiti completamente sconnessi e un’inguaribile entusiasmo per tutto quello che si trova più a Est dell’Italia – meglio ancora se postsovietico e tutto da scoprire.
Adoro il tè, cantare con gli amici intorno ai falò, il brivido di una notte in tenda o di un autostop improvvisato.
Non mi piace il rosa, l’umidità, il caffè.
Potete leggere le mie avventure nel mio blog, Pain de Route.

A Wandering Veronica has left.

I left and arrived.

For the first time in my life, I have felt like a real traveller.
Taking it more than two or three hours to get there and having several stages to reach the final destination has made me feel in a different way, in a manner that I had never felt before.
Some months ago, I started reading the story of Claudio Pelizzeni, and I couldn’t exactly understand the reason why he decided to take a trip of the world without taking planes.
So, two flights and eight hours in a bus later, I can say that, at least for a part, I understood its reason.

Pre-departure – Veronica goes back to wander.

Una Veronica Vagante is ready to go back to wander.

Extremely happy, super excited, over the moon.
But then I think about it a little better, I step my feet on the ground, and, in spite of the strong will, some anxiety shows up.

Let me explain what my next adventure will be more properly.

BASSANO DEL GRAPPA & OLIERO CAVES

Life in Venice is made of bridges, gondolas, romantic sunsets… but there’s water. And water, and water again. And having lived my whole life among green hills, the lack of nature around me kept growing and growing, forcing me to find a shelter from the hot lagoon.
After some research on the Internet, I discovered the Caves of Oliero, and I took advantage of the trip to make a stop and visit Bassano del Grappa, too.

Le Ragazze Vaganti | SABRINA – the series

The series Le Ragazze Vaganti is back. This series has the aim of telling the experiences of wandering girls in order to inspire other young women to explore.
Last week Maria Matus was killed at the beginning of her trip around the world. With this tragic event, the hashtag #noviajaba sola (she didn’t travel alone) was born, simbolizing the fact that leaving alone doesn’t mean being it, and that she didn’t travel alone, as well as I don’t and neither do you.
Any of us could have been Maria, but the solution certainly isn’t staying at homa and so isn’t giving up on your dreams and your freedom.

My name is Sabrina, I’m 29 years old and a digital nomad. I left Italy in 2009 when I attended university in Paris. Once graduated, I left for a year of van life in Australia and for some months wandering around South-east Asia. I tried to go back to Italy, but freelance life in Milan wasn’t for me at all. I’ve been managing my clients remotely since December 2017, working just enough in the Philippines and in Indonesia. My greatest passion is surfing and now I can do it every day!

You can follow me on my website and on Instagram.
