I’ve spent this week reorganizing all the equipment and consolidating all the files I sent home in last 10 months. It added up to a total of 6Tb of data

Closing the loop. After almost a year spent traveling and posting daily, I’m now taking some time off to decompress in my hometown Episcopia (Basilicata Southern Italy)., where it all started.
In the calm and peacefulness of this place I’m starting to note down and reorganize my thoughts before I go back to Paris

Here I am. 300 days ago I left from my hometown Episcopia, in Basilicata. Today, after an incredible journey around the World, 30 countries visited, 1 chipped tooth, 3 broken drones, 2 faulty cameras, 1 self-repaired lens and 1 stolen phone, I’m back in Basilicata with a completely different perception of life on our planet.
I chose Matera as my finish line because this city will be the European Capital of Culture in 2019, a year I will dedicated to reflect and work on the outcomes of this project, to share and preserve our heritage as a species.
Now comes probably the hardest part of all this journey: going back to ordinary life and use all the knowledge I gathered to design projects to improve the way we live in this unique spaceship we call Earth.
Thanks for following

The end of this fascinating cruise in Patagonia means that my 300 days long adventure is over. I’m now on my way back to Basilicata, with an overloaded, oversized backpack and a heavy heart full of memories that are too much to process for only one man

All the numerous islands we crossed during our navigation in the fiords are pristine and free from the presence of mankind.
Some of them however are home to local fauna, like the Magellanic Penguin, a species of penguin endemic to the Strait of Magellan

Several tidewater glaciers can be found in the Cordillera Darwin in Alberto De Agostini National Park. Some of them are really active. While the Garibaldi Glacier is retreating like most of the glaciers around the globe, some like Pia Glacier are actually advancing. This makes this area a really interesting spot to study and monitor the climate of our planet

After reaching Cape Horn we headed back North to reach Wulaia bay, once the site of one of the region’s largest native Yámana communities

In an unusual beautiful morning for the fame of this place, we reached Cape Horn, in the southernmost island of the American continent but also of the planet. This is where the Atlantic meets the Pacific Ocean, creating wild seas that are part of the mythology of nautical history.
That’s the real end of the world. If you go south from here there is only Antartica

Hiking in Tierra del Fuego you feel like the valley down the mountain had just been flooded by seawater. In reality Patagonia was one of the last places on the planet where the ice sheet melted after the last glacial period
