Project paused

From the team: after two nights aboard Clodia under a thunderstorm, Giacomo had a relapse. The doctors suggested him to get back to Italy for a couple of weeks, since resting seems not to be enough of a cure.

He will shortly be in Venice to undertake a therapy that should allow him to continue his voyage.

In the meantime Jacopo, who was working in a farm in Southern France, waiting for Giacomo to get better, has decided to walk his way back to Venice along the following itinerary: Grigioni region up to Tirano, Tonale pass, Val di Non, Val di Fiemme, Val di Fassa, Val Badia, Agordo, Belluno, Venezia.

He wants to thank al the people who helped hin in the last month: Francesca and Ben, Gerard and Costant, Serge and Patricia Desboulles from the Tejuliande farm, their son Laurent, Marion, little Celia, Stephanie and her partner Mickey, their daughter Emile and all friends from Sant Nicolas de la Grave. He also thanks Edy, her husband and their daughter Alice, Emma and the town of Savognin, Don Antonio, Don Matteo all the boys from Tonale school camp.

  1. A gallant effort. I know Giacomo feels responsible to all who have made this journey possible and his ambition at this point is to not disappoint. But life often has different plans for us than we design ourselves. Next year will be another opportunity.
    Be water.


  2. Bello vederti di nuovo in pista. Hai la pelle più dura del marmo con cambio di vocali. Lo sai che forse il 19 sono lassù? Mi hanno invitato a navigare un Sopranino non so ancora dove. Chissà se sarò io a tenerti la mano nella manica…….quanti giochi di parole. Un abbraccio

  3. Non avevo visto l’ultimo post, venivo dal penultimo. Se ci fosse un miglioramento ce la possiamo ancora fare. Ci vediamo a Venezia al più presto.

    Dear Marcos, thank you for your words of wisdom. I am trying to accept and learn a lot from this episode. And to respect the little being who decided to cause all this. He had a plan and maybe I was ready to accept it..Trying to understand and learn.

    I will do my best to recover and preparing the trip even better, to share it with all the friend I met and I will meet.

    Be water and a big big hug. Waiting for you in Venice
