The World is a Book Worth Reading
I Do and I Understand
I See and I Remember
I Hear and I Forget

Grounded in the Eden of the Mediterranean, I cruise around the world. Through writing and photo journaling I challenge stereotypes by accepting the unavoidability of change.

Passion for sustainability, culture, integrity, the depth of liberty, while preserving the richness of life, are the ingredients for enduring happiness.

Dine at the finest restaurants, indulge in the rarest wines, but always balance your lifestyle with temperance to rejuvenate the body, mind & the Blue Planet.  Freedom is the greatest wealth on Earth, spend it wisely.

Be free, AWARE of the LOVE in YOU

Indulge

Bring pleasure to life. Be as mindful of biodiversity, delicious food, terroir expressing art like wine and gourmandise like chocolate, as the air we consume through each inhale
