Eurasia: from Scotland to Japan, August 2016-November 2016
In the second half of 2016, I have traveled for four months from Scotland to Japan by land and sea on off-the-beaten paths. I have crossed eleven countries including Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Southern Siberia, Mongolia, China and built my own way while going. From time to time I have found a way to continue my journey to proceed further using different means, from old trains to buses and hitchhiking. I have seen landscapes, faces and cultures change along the Eurasian continent. I came back so full of experiences that I decided to share them in a book: ‘Oltre e un cielo in più. Da una parte all’altra del mondo senza aereo‘ (‘Beyond and one more sky. Across the world without an airplane’) (Sperling & Kupfer). This is a short story in images and words of that difficult journey whose trajectory is represented above.
