Hi there, I'm Francesca, and this is my story.
To be quite honest, there’s not much you need to know about my personal life to understand why I opened this blog. I’m Italian, currently living in England, and planning to move somewhere else shortly. I am in my late twenties (still twenties though, right?) and a Taurus. I am not a big astrology fan but apparently, this means that I am a lover of nature and arts, I feel everything very deeply, and while I love exploring and embarking on new adventures I also enjoy my own company and days on the sofa with a blanket, some comfort food, and a new tv show. I have my mental schemes to the point of being a bit OCD and I just have to plan everything I do.
I am very passionate about literature, photography, and arts in general. I was the kid that hated every kind of vegetable and only ate a considerate amount of cheese (and potatoes, if you ask my aunt!). Now I eat vegetables every single day, I follow a vegetarian diet, while I still manage to dislike lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, and all those “basic” vegetables you normally eat in a salad. Oh, and I still eat a considerate amount of cheese (and potatoes).
My story begins with a very young kid that started traveling when her parents put her in the back of their car – a black BMW that I loved – at 3 am and drove 8 hours to Val Di Fassa, the dreamiest place in Italy if you ask me. They did this every summer for about ten years, and I still have some of my best memories up there in the mountains.
When I was only 9 years old, I asked them to buy me my first camera so I could stop stealing theirs, and when I was 11 I took my first flight to Moscow. There, I met people from all over the world and discovered what it means to live on a planet that’s so big you’ll never get to know it fully. And I had a hard time adjusting to their food because, as I mentioned earlier, I was a very fussy kid, but this is another story.
Since then, I never stopped moving. I have traveled to many different places and while I almost always remained in Europe, a few years back I took a 24 hours flight by myself and went to the other side of the world, in Oz land. Now that I broke the barrier, of course, I intend to get to the other continents as soon as possible.
My craving for traveling has never faded and while my passion for discovery gets bigger and bigger, I feel like my knowledge of the world gets equally smaller, this is why I try and visit at least one new place a year. Yet still, sometimes, all I dream about is getting in a black BMW and driving all the way to Northern Italy with my family.
