A lassi to remember

A lassi to remember


Posted By on Jul 20, 2018

Sometimes when I am at home I make myself a lassi. It’s a delicious drink made with yogurt and fruit that I discovered in India. I prepare it for myself because, as many Indians reminded me while I was there, it’s “24 hour power”. If you feel low or are a bit tired, lassi is a powerful boost. Or it might have had a sexual connotation, as if to say “you can now have as much sex as you want, 24 hour...

London Planning


Posted By on May 15, 2018

I’m so excited, I’m going to London very soooonnn!! I am staying at friends’, so I don’t need to look for an accommodation, but I only have 3 days and so many places I want to go back, I need to plan my visit carefully. I lived in London for 4 years, between 2005 and 2010. It’s such a vibrant city, you surely can’t get bored here, and I loved it. I loved its parks, its musical shows, the...

I was recently in Morocco for two weeks. It wasn’t my first time, I had already been there 8 or 9 years ago. I had good memories from that trip and these two weeks confirmed that Morocco is a beautiful country to visit, and for more than one reason.   The Orange Juice This is the country of orange trees. They are everywhere, wild in the countryside, in orchards, in gardens, in courtyards. You can drink fresh orange juice...

Blogging


Posted By on Oct 5, 2017

I miss writing on my blog. I used to write a lot during my travels. At some point I even thought I could make some money from it, then I realized it’s very unlikely. Writing has always been for me a way to keep memories and to keep mom informed about my adventures. I also hoped that with my writings, sharing my experiences I could bring those cultures, those different people and food and places closer to the people that...

My experience on the Floating Piers on Lake Iseo was not the happiest. It was very tiring and a bit unsuccessful.   The Floating Piers is a work by the Bulgarian-American artist Christo on Lake Iseo. It consists in 3 kilometers of polyethylene boardwalk (covered in a yellow tissue) that connects Sulzano, a small village on the shores of the lake, to Monte Isola and another small and private island. The work of art is free, open...

Conegliano 1000

Conegliano celebrates 1000 years of history   Conegliano is a medieval town in Treviso, Veneto, that this year celebrates 1000 years of history.     I visited Conegliano on Sunday June 19th with other Instagrammers. We did a tour of the town and participated to the historical reenactment in the evening.     The first documents of Conegliano date back to 1016. At first there were only some houses, then a castle...

2 weeks in the Balkans

2 weeks in the Balkans


Posted By on Jun 15, 2016

Backpacking in the Balkans   In May 2016 I traveled for 2 weeks in the Balkans; a very short time to get to know it, but enough to fall in love with the region. I left home (in Vicenza) without knowing my itinerary. All I knew was that I was going by train to Trieste, and from there I would take a bus to Dubrovnik, in Croatia.     In Trieste I had one hour and a half before my bus, so I decided to take a walk to the...

The charm of Cuba

The charm of Cuba


Posted By on May 9, 2016

In these days of big changes, my thoughts go back to Cuba.   It’s been a peculiar place to visit, full of surprises, bad and good, of disappointments, but surely it is a place like no others and incredibly photogenic.     Last week the first cruise from Florida disembarked in Havana. Americans can now get individual visa to visit Cuba (before they could only visit on a tour). This of course will increase the...

A walk in San Zeno

A walk in San Zeno


Posted By on Apr 28, 2016

Last Monday (April 25 is Liberation Day, a National Holiday in Italy) I took a walk on the hills near home, in San Zeno of Arzignano, during the local “sagra”, a food and cultural festival that takes place every year in my village.     The “sagra” is spread in two weekends and it’s very well organized, considering San Zeno is a very small village. Every day there’s something different in...
