On my way back I stopped at Benevento for a weekend to enjoy the nice food of my grandmother. Then on Monday I drove 4 hours to my aunt in Pescara and enjoyed a nice day at the beach. On the way to Pescara I stopped at a Caseificio to get fresh buffalo mozzarella.
Unfortunately there was no BJJ, not in Salerno nor in Pescara. There is one thing you need to know about Italy: IN AUGUST EVERYONE IS IN HOLIDAY!
On Tuesday I had a 7 hours trip to Lucca, the longest ride I’ve had on my whole trip. I started at 7 o’clock in the morning and arrived at 16:00 o’clock in the afternoon at Ivan’s place. With him I spent the evening walking around Lucca and eating some good Granitas.
On Wednesday I went from Lucca to Torino, my last stop in Italy. Fortunately, there was training with 3 guys from the Officine BJJ. Unfortunately, I had an accident on my way back from training, 100 meters before I arrived at home. Nothing happened to me luckily, but the damage on both vehicles was decent, so I let everything do the insurances.
The next day I had a 5 hours ride to Switzerland and the whole way to Switzerland was full with cars cause the summer vacations were about to end this weekend. But with my vespa I just went between the queues and tricked my way to Switzerland. Arrived there I organized a training session with a good friend of mine and we talked and trained for hours.
On the evening my girlfriend awaited me and we went out to a restaurant with my father and enjoyed a beautiful dinner with my beloved ones. On the weekend we organized a little family party and yeah, that’s it.
My trip end’s here and my blog as well. I gained much experience about Italy and my trip had everything: breakdown’s, accident’s and beautiful moment’s as well. I learned much about myself while I was concentrating to do just BJJ on my trip.
With all this new energy gathered on my trip I will continue to train BJJ in Switzerland and try to give my best in every sparring session with my friends. I want to thank BJJ Globetrotters for the sponsoring package which helped me a lot and for the opportunity to have a blog on this beautiful page.
On my next trip I try to visit on of the BJJ Globetrotters Camp, so I can meet some of you guys in person.
Till then, keep on training guys!!
