‘On January 17 I will start my first backpacking trip alone, flying from Rome to Sao Paulo. Then Iguazu, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador etc.I wanted to say a proper Goodbye to Copenhagen by sharing some of my initial fears and the steps I took to overcome them and finally make the leap.

When? Where? For how long? With whom? But why?

Breaking the news. Parents. Friends

One way flight ticket
