MARCOS BULCAO, 47 years-old, PhD, is a mathematician and an adventurer by heart, a writer and philosopher by trade.
Still as curious as a child, he’s always sought to meet new people and places, and try different sports and adventures. He’s lived up in more than 30 different addresses spread across eight countries in the world, and tried out rappelling, parachuting, bungee-jumping as well as numerous treks.
After getting the taste of crossing a country on foot (he did the Camino de Santiago in 1998), in 2005 he became the first Canadian (and 14th person overall) to walk the 2,000km of the Via Francigena, an ancient pilgrimage route connecting Canterbury (England) to Rome (Italy), crossing France and Switzerland in the making.
He’s published several papers and books on philosophy and psychoanalysis, but also loves writing about travel and sports. Contributing to the GOAT discussion is his current ambition as a tennis aficionado.
