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.

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.

UNA VERONICA VAGANTE È PARTITA.

Partita e arrivata.

Per la prima volta mi sono sentita una vera viaggiatrice.
Metterci più di due o tre ore ad arrivare e avere varie tappe prima di raggiungere la destinazione mi ha fatto sentire in una maniera diversa dal solito, in un modo che non avevo mai provato.
Qualche mese fa ho cominciato a leggere la storia di Claudio Pelizzeni, e non riuscivo esattamente a capire il perché della sua decisione di intraprendere un viaggio senza usare voli aerei.
Due aerei e un viaggio di otto ore in autobus dopo, posso dire di averne, almeno in parte, capito il motivo.

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.

Leggilo in italiano: Pre-partenza – Veronica torna a vagare.

Pre-partenza – Veronica torna a vagare.

Una Veronica Vagante è pronta per tornare a vagare.

Felicissima, estasiata, al settimo cielo.
Poi ci ripenso un pochino meglio, metto i piedi per terra, e, nonostante la voglia, un po’ di ansia mi viene.

Ma fammi spiegare meglio quale sarà la mia prossima avventura.
