Well Folks, as You already know: 

·        We used to talk about dives. We, even, met hammerhead sharks in open water ... and watched a whale from as close as 60 feet (20 mt),

·        We used to talk about Andean trails and the endless fight with "high altitude sickness", we enjoyed – too - the unforgettable "magic lonelyness" of Macchu Picchu,

·        We used to talk about Amazon river cruises and about those incredible sunsets falling into the gorgeous jungle and, also, we got used to ...  "tons" of mosquitoes!!!,

·        We used to talk about Mexican deserts and rain forest: aka: cacti, orchids, tequila and – of course! – cichlids,

·        We used to talk about the Rift Valley: those unforgettable dives in Lake Malawi and the collection of wild specimens in some of the most intriguing place of the lake ...

·        There were "dive-cruises" in the Red Sea (my brother lived for a long time in Sharm el Sheikh) sailing as far as the border of Sudan ...

·        We hit the track; dressed in leather to push the bike to the very (my own) limits.

·        We have been even paragliding too (but only a "test jump": … enough is enough!).

There were countless opportunities to "push it waaaaay further" ... but then one day, "all of a sudden", came Leonardo (my Son, born on February 7th 2003!!!).

You know: … from now on, everything WILL be different!!!

Welcome my son ...

I just wanted to share my joy with all of you!
