Bio

"Humans need to travel. By their own means, not by stories, images, books or TV. By their own, with their eyes and feet, to understand what is theirs. For some day planting their own trees and giving them some value. To know the cold for enjoying the heat. And reversely. To feel the distance and lack of shelter for being well under their own roof. Human needs to travel to places they don't know for breaking this arrogance that causes us to see the world as we imagine it, and not simply as it is or may be. That makes us teachers and doctors of what we have never seen, when we should just be learners, and simply go see it." ―Amyr Klink 'Mar sem Fim'/'Endless Sea'; “In the world I live, I see people working more than they really should, to earn more money than they really need, to buy things they don't really want, to impress people they don't really like.” ― Amos Oz “The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village.” ― Roald Dahl, Matilda
