There is an Italian song saying, "Ma come non ti accorgi di quanto il mondo sia meraviglioso?" and it always comes to my mind when I travel. It means: "How come you don't realize how actually amazing this world is?" It is, indeed, but sometimes we forget it. That is why I love traveling, it makes me focus on beauty, it makes me conscious of how other people live, it makes me feel the diversity and that is exactly what makes this world so wonderful.
As a passionate admirer of the Italian language, culture, and lifestyle, after having experienced life in Italy myself, I feel inspired to create your personal Italian episode of life and make sure you have a life-changing experience that is not only going to be unforgettable but also will certainly make you fall in love with life again.

How did you get involved in travel?
"As a kid, I spent a lot of time with my grandma who is a geography teacher, so I was surrounded by maps and books about all the countries of the world and that is how I began to wonder how it would be to see all that beauty in person. Later, when I started to study at the university, I heard of European Union Youth Exchanges and that's when I started to discover Europe in a very active and educational way, surrounded by young people from different countries, discussing certain problems of our society and finding the solutions by exchanging ideas. After that, I just wanted to spread my horizons more and more. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"South American adventures through Chile, Argentina, and Brazil at the beginning of 2020 with my best friend. Very spontaneous, following our intuition kind of trip. We enjoyed beautiful landscapes, totally forgot about a modern world, swam in rivers, camped in the middle of nowhere, volunteered in hostels, and shared experiences with local people. Besides having crossed our path with so many beautiful people there, now we both can dance cumbia and speak Spanish, how amazing is that!"
