Happy birthday Chicca

There are people you meet, lose touch with and meet again discovering so many commonalities with them that make you wonder why so many years have gone by without you noticing.

Erminio, also known as “the perfect travel buddy”

“I love myself as a travel buddy and if I could I would pick myself for every journey”. This is just one of the many things he said with sincerity and conviction while walking through the orphanage courtyard. The good thing is that he is right, and he knows it, because Erminio is really amusing. …
