Just a quick reminder of how beautiful my country is!

Sometimes I don’t choose to travel, travels choose me. So I’ve decided to tell you more about an adventure I had this summer. And the only people I’ve to thank for it are my parents. It was mid-July when I finally came back to Italy after finishing my university year in England and working around…

How it hurts to say NO to traveling

As I said in my first post in this blog, I consider myself totally addicted to traveling. I can’t stop myself from booking a ticket, packing a suitcase and having that sensation of feeling both lost and excited at the same time. So when my friend Sunniva offered me to escape from the cold winter…

My Oktoberfest adventure

One week ago I could delete something from my to-do list. Exactly one week ago, in fact, I was in Munich, Germany, for the OKTOBERFEST!! It has always been a dream for me to go there, as for young people here where I live finally going to the Oktoberfest could actually be considered as a…

My love for flea markets (or How I bought another Polaroid!)

So sorry for the outrageously long absence, but exams were my priority in the past month. But this week I have to tell you about one of the things I love the most while traveling: flea markets. This article was inspired by my Saturday lunch break. You might ask yourself why, and I’ll explain. I’ve…

5 years after my exchange year

This week I’m posting only on Thursday because it’s a special post, and it took me some time to prepare. Today is the fifth anniversary of my departure from Italy to the United States for my exchange year. That will always be probably the best year of my life, and the experience that changed everything….

The Laundromat Cafe – Copenhagen

It happens often to me that when I eat in a nice restaurant or café or I sleep in a nice hostel I really want to recommend it to someone, but don’t know how. I’m not a big fan of reviews on Tripadvisor or Booking or other websites, because they’re usually so cold and impersonal….

Mi agosto en España

At this time last year I was spending the all month of August by myself in Spain. This wasn’t planned at all, at least until June. It all started back in September 2014, when I wanted to take a French course in uni, but it was impossible due to some classes clashing with it. So,…

Literary travel: “Books v. Cigarettes” by George Orwell

I appreciated for the first time the work of George Orwell when, in high school, my English literature teacher made us read Animal Farm. I loved that book, notwithstanding the fact that we had to read it over and over again for months, until I almost knew it by heart. And my inner history geek…

Going to Murano? Don’t stop there…

Tourists in Venice are often tempted to go over to the famous Island of Murano. One of the islands of the Venetian archipelago, Murano is well-known all over the world for its handmade colorful glass. Though some glass souvenirs may be bought in Venice as well, visitors in Murano can watch the making of glass…

My “literature travels”

There’s some news on this newborn blog of mine. It’s almost two months I’ve been writing on it and ideas keep spinning in my mind. So there’s gonna be a new category of posts about more traveling adventures, in particular about my so called “literature travels”. Because travels are not my only passion, unfortunately (unfortunately…
