When you grow up in a small town of the province, with a passion for foreign languages and literature, the desire to leave raises a strong, unbearable, which is held at bay just dreaming of leaving, planning the trip, saving every penny .
At 25, if I were to take stock of my life, I would say that I’m happy, I wanted to travel more but that I really enjoyed and hard-won experience with all the resources I had. I lived nine months in Spain in Granada, in Erasmus, and five months in Argentina, studying at UNC, thanks to a scholarship from the University of Bologna. They left alone, and I became stronger and aware, and the journey has become my drug. Now I am planning my next trip alone: after a tour of Belgium in solitary in May, this year brings another adventure, ISTANBUL. Backpack ready, ready the Lonely Planet guide full of notes and pages already experienced, this will be my first experience in an Islamic country.
Degree in foreign languages and literature and graduating in teaching Italian to foreign language in high school I had a clear idea, and now my dreams take shape and I hope to become, one day, a Travelling Teacher. In particular I would like to visit South-East Asia, and return to the continent that makes me feel VIVA: Latin America.
In my future I see also voluntary, but, as an African proverb says, “A time to be tree and a time to be pirogue”: there is a time for everything.
Traveling alone because this is my therapy.
Everyone has to find their own way to happiness, and my wanderings is synonymous with joy, always. Fear and anxiety predeparture not ever overlook my curiosity and desire to discover.
Choose a daily thing we want to do, alone in a foreign country means having control of your own life, without fear of how others will judge us, carving out their own time and space, and by defeating problems everyday and existential crises . Travelling alone always has the power to get up the self-esteem, to find the right answers to my questions, to prove that saddled myself that I can handle and always in our complicated world.
“This world is a marvel. There’s nothing to do, it is a marvel. And if you can feel part of this wonder – but not you, with your eyes and your two feet; if you, this essence of you, feel to be part of this wonder – what do you want more, you want more? A new car?“
