TREKKING AND NATURE HIKES AND TRAVELS

better what surrounds us, the environment can reveal us many secrets, telling ancient stories that have influenced landforms, vegetation and fauna that we see

Would you like to travel for birdwatching and to discover different landscapes, environments and cultures? During the trips that I organize the interests in ornithological and nature aspects is always accompanied by cultural curiosity and the understanding of how human activities have had an influence on the environments and species, as well as they have been affected. Everything in nature is part of a neverending story.
