They include: go to the meeting of reindeer herders, the mongols, make a spiritual retreat in the Sahara, traveling with a shaman in Peru, to cycle on the tibetan plateau of Nepal, save the elephants in Thailand, surfing under the northern lights, or “from the heart of the amazon jungle”.

This initiatory journey in the tropical forest in harmony with an indian tribe, during which you won’t see a single tourist but might catch a glimpse of a jaguar (as was the case for him) is surely the most iconic of Odysway.

By 2019, Roman Masina suggest going to the “running with the athletes in Ethiopia”. His travels in immersion (version roots but secure) out of the city-dwellers of their comfort zone, but give memories intense. Her motto: “discover yourself by discovering the world.”
