2015, Autumn, Sweden
Every person is different.
It was raining outside heavily. Already passed 6pm. He supposed to arrive now. Where is he?
I look through the windows, it is getting dark soon. There, I spot a figure at the far distance from the flat, a guy pushing his cycle up to hill. Seems a bit lost, gives me the feeling, that he is Luca, I should reach him. So I ran down the stairs, into the rain, to catch him just in time, shouting; 'Luca, is that you?'. He was. And his story begins here.
Luca Scacchetti, an Italian traveler cycling from Rome to Sweden.
He started his journey on the 29th of July, 2015. His journey went through Italy, Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and finally Norway. He reached the North Cape on the 3rd of October, 2015. He cycled 6025 km.
During his journey he was writing a journal. As he was saying, he is planning to write a book, which will be a mixture of his thoughts during journey, his philosophical theorisations, reflections on his life, pictures and drawings, drawn by his tattooist friend.
He is back in Rome and he has finished with his journal, more than 700 pages.
