Firenze la bella

The place that changed it all for me. When I was here for the first time last Summer, my life was a chaotic mess and I wasn’t sure what I was doing or where I was going. But the moment I stepped on Firenze, walked the streets Leonardo did, I felt I was on the right path. Everything became very clear.

It was here in the magical Firenze where I decided that I was to move to Italy permanently.

Roma to Ljubljana, Zagreb and Vienna by train

My favorite way to see this wonderful continent is by train. For me there is no better way of living travels. Landscapes passing one after the other, from a safe and comfortable train. With no restriction on baggage weight. In the era of everything rushed and fast, train travel gives you time. “Slow” train travel it is a privilege during these “fast times”.

Here I share my experience traveling from the everlasting Roma passing through the incredible magical Ljubljana in Slovenia, arrive to the dream come true that is Zagreb in Croatia and end this train adventure in Imperial Vienna.

I call this a fantastic way of starting this fantastic new year 🙂

Grab a good book, bring yourself snacks and drinks and enjoy the scene Continue reading

Checklist for a long trip!

I’ve been planning trips since… forever? Back when I was in elementary school maps fascinated me. The world fascinated me, it always amazed me that at this same time there are people in another parts of the world having an absolutely different life, and we are all part of something bigger. I am In Love with travel, I am In Love with places I’ve never been. I want to see every single inch of earth available. I sat on my patio and looked at planes go by and wondered where they were coming from or who was in there.

I had a huge map on my bedroom wall and I could spend hours looking at it and planning where to go, I would create an itinerary in my mind.

If I ever met someone new and this person would tell me about the trips they did, I would ask every single thing about it and just been taken away. And still happens to me.

Travel is my life, my passion. Travel and writing are my vocation, and what I came to do to this world. 

For the past few years I’ve been having a somehow stable life, just taking short trips here and there. But the passion burns inside me, and every day that past, every new month and new year that begins and I’m still in the same place I feel I’m wasting my life if I don’t get to travel. I know is a bit extreme, but that is how I feel about traveling.

Now I graduated from college (again) and I’m at a point in my life where I feel I’m not where I want to be (emotionally and physically). I love New Orleans with passion, but I cant wait to get away from it. Or maybe I want to get away from myself here, from who I am being here.

That is the thing… we have the chance to become whatever we want to be when we get to a new place, but it seems that with time we fall back into our old behaviors and patrons and we start being unhappy again. And that taught me that no matter where I go… I will go with myself, and I have to resolve what I need to within me in order to move on (emotionally and physically).
