The journey by motorbike through northern Spain continues towards the next stop in Santiago de Compostela, the capital of the Spanish province of Galicia and the final end of the journey of the same name, called Santiago's Way, in which millions of pilgrims engage every year.

My itinerary continues from Gijon through the beautiful northern coasts, such as the Praia das Catedrais, which owes its name to the numerous particular rock formations located on the beach, which form a very suggestive series of natural arches that can be crossed on foot during the low tide and which are reminiscent of the rampant arches of the Gothic cathedrals.

Arrived in the city of Santiago it is time to rest before embarking on the return journey to Barcelona, maybe tasting an excellent Galician octopus accompanied by tasty pimiento de Padron. You waiting to taste these specialties, enjoy a few photos of my trip.

The Romantische Strasse is an itinerary along Bavaria until reaching the mountain range of the German Alps about 366km long. This itinerary touches many places of interest both from the historical and landscape point of view, such as the famous Neuschwanstein castle commissioned by Ludovico II, or characteristic towns such as Rothenburg ob der Tauber surrounded by a solid wall chain, Nördlingen featuring quayside and Augusta, the capital of Swabia characterized by the urban center with valuable archaeological finds.

Despite the constant rain that accompanied me during the first half of my motorcycle trip, I did not lose sight of myself and still managed to shoot numerous photos of these places. Below you can find a brief summary.

Berlin is not only the capital of Germany but also its pulsating heart as a city full of history and culture. The city stretches for 892 square kilometers, making it the fifth largest city in the entire European Union. During the few days I stayed in this town I could taste the different aspects by visiting the many monuments and museums, also trying the taste of artisan beers created by the masters who abound in Germanic land.

Below some photos taken during the past few days in the streets and the zoo in Berlin

Last year for carnival I was in Venice, to photograph the beautiful masks that every year populate its streets and squares. This year, however, I moved to Ivrea, where the various districts of the city collide each other in citrus flavor skirmishes.

In fact since 1808 Ivrea has hosted this event, the culmination of which is the famous "Battle of the Oranges", which has become the icon of the Carnival and the widespread custom of wearing a frigid cap or "berretto frigio" (which I invite you to try to avoid to be target of some shooter). Tendering not to fall also victim of some very long launch I tried taking some photos of the event. See you soon!
