We are Davide and Otilia, an international couple with itchy feet, originally from Italy and Romania but now living our non conventional life as a nomad travel.
We are always moving, travelling, backpacking and volunteering in interesting projects from which we can learn and give as much as we can. We like to experience new things every day, to share our lives with other inspiring people and to stay outdoors, to be amazed and inspired by nature, which we love the most every second of our lives.
Davide: I like to say that I'm a traveller.
Some years ago I quit my job to explore as much as possible of this world, trying to do it in a sustainable way. I turned my passions for travel and photography into my everyday life and I'm very interested in traditional and natural ways of building. I'm also a prolific travel and photography writer, with publications in several paperback and online magazines. I dream of a world based upon needs and resources, and I strongly unlike cars as a private means of transportation, making the bicycle my elected vehicle.
I started to be a nomad traveller when I was still young, but only for a couple of weeks a year, as most of the people do. Until I couldn't stand anymore the western lifestyle, and I quit my job a first time in 2007. I went for 3 months in Arcosanti(USA), to experience an alternative lifestyle in a community in the desert in Arizona. After this experience I tried to go back to my job and to "normal life" but I had to quit a second and last time in 2009, since I started travelling endlessly. I've travelled so far in 45 countries and in 3 different continents and I accomplished the plan of travelling without using the plane as long as I could, to reduce my impact on our mother earth; the experiment ended after 954 days of travelling overland, almost exclusively hitchhiking, in which I covered more than 50 000 km in a single trip.
