Has your opinion of blogging changed since you started your blog?

As I wrote here, my first blogging experience was very different from what I’m doing now. So I would say yes, my way to consider blogging has definitely changed. The most important thing I’ve realised is how motivating and inspiring is to actually connect with other bloggers…a true positive energy for my daily life!

What post was the hardest to write/publish?

In general, the hardest post to write are the ones where I talk about personal experiences and emotions. If I had to pick one in particular I’d choose “Home Where?” in my expat thought section, in which I explained how my feeling of home changed since when I moved abroad, quite difficult to explain and write.

What do you do when you don’t know what to blog about?

It actually never happened until now, this because I have a file in which, any time an inspiration for a post comes to my mind I write it down in bullet points or even just the title. In this way I always have a “stock” of posts to choose and integrate. I’d strongly suggest this technique to anyone!

What book do you believe everybody should read?

I have to admit that I’m not a great reader, but I love the writer Marlo Morgan. The book that I would strongly suggest anyone to read is “Message From Forever ” – a story about aboriginal twins separated at birth and the search for roots that reunites them from opposite sides of the globe. It’s a really moving story which invites the reader to reflect about some aspects of life from different points of view.

What is your idea of the perfect travelling book?

A perfect travelling book for me would be written by a local person or a person who lives in that place since a long time and would suggest not just the normal touristic things to do but also particular and non-conventional attractions. Adding personal experiences would also be great and inspiring.

What was the scariest travelling moment of your life?

Probably that one night in Beijing when a friend and I were going back to the hotel from a party and the taxi man got lost. Is not really common there to have GPS and the city is so big that I really don’t know how they manage to know all the places…Well, our taxi driver thought he understood where to go but he actually didn’t. We had no clue where we were and how to get back (and both of our phone ran out of battery…), util [I don’t know how!] my friend recognised where we were, because we did the same rout in the morning with the bus, and we managed to find our way!

Three destinations on your bucket list:

Canada – It has always been one of my dreams going there, probably because I’ve heard my parents talking about their stay there so many times that now I feel like I want to live the same experience and after having as house mate a Canadian girl for 5 months and listening to all her stories, I’m even more motivated to go!

Thailand – I’ve seen so many pictures and read about many experience you can do there and I feel like it would be a perfect place where to live an experience that can make you realise many things about yourself.

Spain – Spain? Well, yes… despite I’ve seen more than half Europe I’ve never  been to Spain and of course it’s on my bucket list! Also because Italy and Italian people are often compared to Spain so I am curious to actually see the similarities and differences myself 🙂

Walk or drive?

I really enjoy walking, I believe you can notice many more things rather than when taking any kind of transport.

Do you read several books at the same time or one at a time?

Definitely one at a time, I prefer to be totally into one book rather than reading many but not enjoying them completely.

What is the first book that made you cry?

“The Elegance of the Hedgehog”, I love that book so much and I enjoy re-reading it once in a while.

If you could teleport anywhere right now, where would it be?

Somewhere where I can stand in front of a great view. Sea, mountains, hill… don’t really mind which kind of view, as long as I can see the sun rise and admire all the light colours slowly coming out.
