Il Mio Amore Per La Cina

*I apologise to the ones who can not read this, but I had to write it in my native language* – Decido di intitolarlo così il mio articolo su quel Paese che mi era tanto sconosciuto, tanto lontano e che adesso porto con me, nel cuore: la Cina. Ho letto e continuo a leggere i…

Those Times

I’ve been thinking to start writing again lately but never felt what to write about. I have a lot to say but somehow words don’t come out. It happens sometimes. It’s just as like when artists say “we need inspiration to create art”. So do I. And so there she goes. Travelling, exploring, finding herself…

My Inner Story – Part I: A Heavy Heart

Emotions, where to begin.. Breath in, breath out. I don’t think I would ever write something like this, but I feel I have to do it. And making it public can only help facing my fears even better. This post is about my life.  When I was 17, I decided that my life was too…

#54: Baku & The Land of Fire, Azerbaijan

My trip to Georgia was followed by the discovery of the so called Land of Fire: Azerbaijan. “The Land of Fire is a phrase in the Azerbaijani language and an ancient Azerbaijani cultural concept that denoted either the entire Azerbaijan’s geographical land or the metaphysical realm of mortals, and later became associated with political sovereignty and cultural symbolism.”…

My 29th Wish – Educating The Ones Who Stayed

Time goes by, we become older and wiser (hopefully). We spend more time thinking about the future responsibilities and less time overthinking about the past and its what, why and how come.  Every year we add a part to our life, and create ourselves as we tend and shall be different from what we were the…

Dear Inner Self, I Can’t Understand You!

You know that time of life where you wish to say so many things but then you end up saying nothing? That’s me since childhood, every now and then. Not good with spoken meaningful words, so I write. Being English not my first language I am making and probably will always make some mistakes, however…

#51: Laos – Luang Prabang With One Of The Best

The simple Asia that I love: Luang Prabang reminds me of Cambodia, where the daily life is based on people’s smiles, kindness and their willing to help. I’ve always wanted to visit Laos, as it was the only place I was missing in this part of Asia. I flew from Jakarta, Indonesia, where I currently…

My Worldwide Friendship With A Swedish Girl

As I usually write about my own lifestyle besides all the trips I do and the countries I live in, I feel the need to write about the importance of one specific person in my life and how she was always able to be there when I needed. Mentally and physically. She is the one…

The Real (Unexpected) Saudi Arabia – Part I

“There is nothing in Saudi Arabia, why would you go there?” “It is too dangerous there and women are not respected, don’t go!” etc. People talk, and talk nonsense without then really understanding what is really happening on the ground. A lot has to do with media portraying Saudi Arabia (or the Arab world) in…
