“Every meeting, every moving,
Let to the traveler some sign more or less deep or Incounscious”,
Matteo Pennacchi –
Il Grande Sogno, il viaggio del mondo senza soldi e senza bagagli
August 18th 2000. I saw that book in the library and the title made me suddenly some curiosity, above all because I loved to travel, even I was 14 yo and I didn’t have experience about travels.
As long as the end the month I have already read the book and since that moment I started to dream to travel around all over the world.
In twelve years I borrow that book almost ten times above all when I scared to face some travel.
One day I think I’ll buy this book, if I found in some library or in a three euros stand. It will be my amulet.
This week I’m stay abroad for two months, but I’m not remain in the same country. I start to travel around the Scandinavia, my first Stop: OSLO.
Tomorrow will be the day X, wakeup call at 4am and flight at 6.40am.
I went to the hair dress and I cut my hairs, I blocked my car insurance and I still heard in my minds the words of the secretary which warn to me that if I blocked I can’t use the car until 3 months.. I HOPE SO.
After I’m going for two days in London for going to New York. I bought the first ticket with Ryan Air for Oslo and I’m going to stay for two days and one night, then I’m going to Sweden for two weeks and I shared Stockholm, Uppsala and Helsinki.
I put into my bag the necessary, even with my forex photos I arrive to fifteen kilos: two jeans, two t-shirt, 2 tank tops, 1 cardigan and one pullover, one jacket, 2 shorts, socks and boxer for one weeks, 2 shirt for any special occasion ( we don’t know), swimwear, camera, Aspirin, all the kit for the personal hygiene, mobile phones and book ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.
I choose other the “Grande Sogno” by Matteo Pennacchi the East US Tourist Guide and my book then I wrote, so my friends could see my book.
Anxiety, Anxiety, Anxiety, but also excited and a lots of ideas about my american projects, but for the instance I let you a little bit of suspense.
I received emails and text messages where one suppose that I’m hyper rich because I’ll do this trip.
Actually I found flight really convenient : the flight to Oslo I paid only 46 euro with Ryan Air, luggage included, From Oslo to Stockholm with the local company SAS, Scandinavian Airlines, I spent 75 euros ( compared to Fly be the low cost flights which I had to pay 76 euros) From Stockholm to London with British Airways I paid only 65 euro, compared to Ryan air which without luggage I had to pay 60 euros
The total price of the Scandinavian trip is 186 euros.
Anyone still think that I’m rich?
London – New York City go and return I paid 587 euros, the total that I paid at the moment it’s 770 euro.
Anyway I’ll report my dues about the trip adding to this, so we can see how much I’ll spend it!
Anyway I wait any suggestions, comments and answears from Italy and abroad and why not, if someone would help me about this crazy thing I’ll appreciate!
