Via Alpina, Story of an Odyssey

For as long as I can remember, I have always been attracted by the grandeur of the landscapes and the freedom felt when I set out on the paths.

It opens us to discovery, surprise and exploration.

So it was decided.

For 17 days, accompanied by my friend Quentin, I ventured into the Eastern Alps with the challenge of crossing, on foot and in autonomy, the Via Alpina over 300 km.

A long journey that will immerse us in the heart of a still wild and preserved nature of Slovenia to reach the majestic glacial circuses of Austria via the famous Italian Dolomites.

An incredible human adventure with a thousand twists, punctuated by joy, encounters but also of fear and doubts.

A journey in search of meaning on a rather unknown path.

A path where we encounter as much diversity as adversity.

A path on which an immense wind of freedom blows.
