GENERATIONAL TALES: A DAUGHTER'S FATHER
I can’t deny that the beauty of the Tuscan hills and its steady up and downs, brought an undying pleasure. Beautiful old cities, all linked by a mind-blowing landscape, but there has been something else that has been of an invaluable asset, something I would recommend every parent to do at a certain stage of life: spending 5 days, 24hrs with my daughter to such an intensive extent that cannot be outweighed by anything. Endless conversations and heated debates about the gender-neutral tongue, foreign aid, equal rights… Controversial positions, but stimulating perspectives on both sides paired with little stories about experiences we both faced during last years the other one was not aware of. Cycling, talking, cycling.
