Project

It is a book of traveling chronicles about love. In other words, something like a trip in search of love. These are non-fiction stories I researched last year while traveling through Spain, France, Germany, Belarus, Russia, Mongolia, China, South Korea and Japan.

My girlfriend was studying in Kyoto: visiting her was the excuse to do all that tour and also to make reportages. So I searched the road for other stories of romance, lack of love, company, loneliness, sexuality: love is a human and social magma in which we are all intertwined.
