EN/   About Conscious and Braveness 

Over the years I realised that my courage to the adventures, changed a little its attitude. The maturity made me more conscious and aware of danger, a vision of possible variables that can make things go wrong, and not only wrong, being unsafe.

I always wonder: will be better to have the knowledge and prepare for it, which involves concern and anxiety, or to keep away from them and they just have an attitude when there is an explosion?
