Verona | being home and setting boundaries

This first week back in Italy and in my hometown has been incredibly confusing and challenging.

Living abroad is really hard, too, but I couldn’t have ever imagined that coming back would have been on the same, if not worse, level.

After two years abroad and two more living in another city, I knew that this (temporary) transition into my parents’ house wouldn’t be an easy one since the very beginning.

I have found myself crying countless times by now.
The other day I woke up all lost as I really wished I could be back with my Madrid toilet. Yes, I’m that lost.

BASSANO DEL GRAPPA & OLIERO CAVES

Life in Venice is made of bridges, gondolas, romantic sunsets… but there’s water. And water, and water again. And having lived my whole life among green hills, the lack of nature around me kept growing and growing, forcing me to find a shelter from the hot lagoon.
After some research on the Internet, I discovered the Caves of Oliero, and I took advantage of the trip to make a stop and visit Bassano del Grappa, too.

BASSANO DEL GRAPPA E LE GROTTE DI OLIERO

La vita a Venezia è fatta di ponti, gondole, tramonti romantici… ma c’è acqua. Acqua, e ancora acqua. Ed essendo cresciuta in mezzo alle colline, la mancanza di verde attorno a me è continuata a crescere, costringendomi a trovare un posto in cui rifugiarmi dal caldo lagunare.
Dopo alcune ricerche su internet, ho scoperto le Grotte di Oliero, e ne ho approfittato per fermarmi a visitare anche Bassano del Grappa.

ALPI GIULIE | TREKKING IN SOLITARIA DI 5 GIORNI

“Vivi nel tuo mondo, ma grazie per avermi mostrato che le cose possono funzionare perfettamente anche in altri modi”.
Questa è una delle cose più belle che mi abbiano detto finora, e anche se sono d’accordo solo parzialmente, è una delle parti di me che mi hanno spinta a decidere di fare questo viaggio.
Ho unito pezzetti di vari sentieri e ho creato il mio percorso di cinque giorni sulle Alpi Giulie, in Friuli, al confine con l’Austria e la Slovenia.

5 days SOLO TREKKING in the Julian Alps | THE JOURNEY

“You live in your own world, but thank you for showing me that everything can work perfectly in other ways, too.”
This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve been told so far, and even I just partially agree, it’s part of what made me take the decision to take this trip.
I put together different trails for a five-days trekking alone in the Julian Alps, in the North-eastern part of Italy, next to the borders with Austria and Slovenia.

VERONA – 10 places to fall in love with

Italy is a country full of history and art, but at times the traditional lifestyle can become too old and restricted for the younger generation.

And that is what happened to me. I needed to go abroad, to have an experience that could open my eyes and let me see better the reality I was living in.

I spent an entire summer working in Spain, and when I came back, I realized how fascinating the city I grew up in was.

So, let me show you some of the reasons why Verona, a city in Northern Italy, is worth a trip to!
