Marco & Mary
Lago Maggiore (Italy)

Ciao, benvenuti sul nostro blog! Welcome on our blog! Siamo Marco e Maria Antonietta, un fotografo torinese e un'archeologa romana votati alla causa di un turismo più sostenibile e consapevole. Ci consideriamo una coppia di nomadi "poco digitali" ma con una gran voglia di condividere le nostre avventure...di solito condite con qualche pasticcio! L'amore ci ha unito un anno fa e questo progetto è il frutto della nostra passione per una diversa filosofia di viaggio: nel rispetto della natura, a contatto con le comunità locali, percorrendo itinerari meno conosciuti. Sport in natura, meditazione, buoni libri e un bicchiere di rum sono solo alcuni degli ingredienti della nostra ricetta di vita e di blog. ________________________________________________ We are Marco and Maria Antonietta, a photographer from Turin and a Roman archaeologist voted to the cause of a more sustainable and responsible tourism.
