There are moments when you would like to leave everything and change your life. Moments when everything seems empty and devoid of real substance; work feels banal and repetitive, the daily routine is monotonous. Claudio Pelizzeni, 32 years old and former bank accountant, didn’t get stuck in those moments. He has really left everything, home, work, security, to embark on a grandiose project: travelling around the world in 1000 days without ever taking a plane. And so TripTherapy was born, a journey narrated on a blog and on Instagram. And that will soon become a book.
At the end of March 2014, Claudio left everything to follow his passion. Starting on May 4th, the first goal was already ambitious: reaching Australia without ever taking a flight (we’re talking about 48,000 kilometres and 16 countries in 9 months). Heading east, toward the sunrise, Claudio’s long journey began and TripTherapy was born. Here it is, exclusively for The Italian Eye Magazine.
