I never gave up everything? Somebody did and went to Jamaica

Not only Bob Marley, beaches and cannabis. Andrea Cavallo Perin has dropped everything and left for six months exploring the Caribbean island every respect. His story

“Drop everything”. Hands up who has not thought at least once in their lifetime. Someone, in addition to having thought, has also done. Andrea Cavallo Perin, creative Turin of 29, he left for Jamaica in order to discover traditions and customs. And correct just clichés frequently. Let’s start with this: reeds, Bob Marley, breathtaking beaches, homophobia. “For heaven’s sake, all true, except racism: never look or an insult because they are white. Jamaica is far “, explains just returned from the Caribbean island after six months. “People have a great memory of the past because he lived and was freed from slavery. For Accompong Maroon for example, a man took me into the forest and showed me the place where his ancestors had fought for his life. That place, like many other things, is blessed with the rum, a rite of purification. ” It is thanks to a Jamaican rum, Appleton Rum, that Andrea was able to document everything.

“The rum in Jamaica is regarded as our wine, we do not miss my table and varies from Azona in the area, and also by social status.”
“Every day, wake up at 7:30, breakfast with ackee, tropical fruit and Saltfish, dried fish; then exploring the length and breadth of the island. ” The thing that struck him was the nature: “dominates the man with all its power and luxuriance” But even people, “now tell much about himself and their country, from the manager to the farmer, without distinctions. But also reggae, slavery and much more. ” But there is one aspect that Andrea did not like: the slowness. “It will be in the heat but we have totally different rhythms and I have not managed to adapt. Everyone says: “Jamaica no problem”. ” The only thing that Andrea will is a biped bird: the chicken. “They call it Jerk chicken and cooked in many different ways. I’d had enough. ”

The journey is over, but for six months Andrew has really dropped everything, beginning with his work that is now ready to take it back. Not behind a desk, but still with a video camera, “I’m leaving for the” Around the World in 80 Days “. That is a video project that will tell the generation of global shapers, those young people who have invented something relevant and living in the same city in the book by Jules Verne. “

And if we passed it in the next vacation … Iran?


Declassified by guide books for a long time, back in vogue the country that was of Cyrus the Great. In addition to an old tradition, it has several things to offer. between sea, snow-capped mountains, and ancient ruins, we discover together today Persia!

The magical atmosphere of Flickr
Surely the Middle Eastern country remains an exotic destination of your dreams, as there are few in the world. Remained inaccessible for at least thirty years, isolated from the international community, he is slowly returning to normal, and its tourist flows are slowly increasing. The election in 2013 of the moderate Hassan Rohani has dampened a climate of Cold War, and the historic agreement on nuclear power has not been slow to arrive in 2014.

Kharanaq old city, Iran.

Kharanaq old city, Iran.

The latter has given rise to an international openness overdue. So the new Persia looks like a destination for everyone and for every budget. In fact it is one of the few countries that inspire the imagination of Europeans, evoking scenes from “Arabian Nights”, between the city-oasis, salt lakes, a city-museum open-air, deserts and archaeological sites of inestimable value. It is also a destination eclectic, unique, highly cultural and refined.

The fascinating architecture shutters
Travelers wishing to travel to the Middle Eastern country have certainly many doubts about safety, but also if it is possible to drive the car yourself, or how to dress, since it is a state where the main religion is Muslim. On the latter point, women should have absolutely the body and hair covered, this means bringing in public scarf, a long skirt, long sleeves, and are vietatissime necklines. Men should not wear shorts nor shorts.

Continuing the wave of bans, it is strictly forbidden to photograph official buildings and uniformed staff. For the rest of the Iranian people it is very helpful and welcoming, and tourists will feel perfectly at home. Usually the traveler to Iran, is a person navigated, who has been in many other places and want something different from the usual traditional destinations. We are talking about a country whose visit is normally focused on ancient remains and archaeological wealth, rather than on leisure and relaxation, although the ski resorts are truly remarkable.

Iran, therefore, is no longer a target niche, not suitable for mass tourism, but having only recently opened to tourism flows, can only attract more and more visitors, on the model of Burma and Vietnam, provided that the geopolitical situation remains stable. What asettate you too to be seduced by the Persian culture? Now Persepolis, Isfahan and Tehran are at hand, do not miss the chance to visit them!
