    Life is so strange!

    Finally back in London Hey guys, I’m finally writing from the hall of my hostel in London! I’m so happy to be here again 🙂 I came yesterday evening after two days spent in Milan where I went to the BIT for the first time, an important tourism fair where I met a lot of other bloggers. It has been so funny! As I told you in my previous post, in these days I’ve been staying in this hostel because I was supposed to look for a room where to move to from the beginning of March. Instead… Instead, instead, instead…last week I got a phone call and then an…

    I’m back!

    Hello guys! Such a long time I haven’t been writing here! I needed some time to think about my plans, my work…about my life. After I came back from my amazing travel in Asia, I spent my time doing you know what? But traveling…of course! I really wanted to tell you all the wonderful thing I saw, the marvelous cities I visited and write some articles about all of that, but then I don’t know. I was in such a horrible period, I was sad&confused about my future, about what I really wanted to do and then I left. And I’ve been into the mountains, in Rome, Naples…no computer, no…

    Welcome to our family!

    About this time of the night, a year ago, today, I was leaving for what later turned out to be absolutely the most important experience of my life. I perfectly remember that morning when I was on the beach, in Albissola, my beloved home, eating my last focaccia (the tastiest food of my region, Liguria) before leaving, looking at the sea, for the last time in a while. And that evening, at Nice airport, when, just said goodbye to my mum and my friends and stopped crying, I was finally alone, sitting in front of the gate. Waiting. My flight was about one hour and half delayed. I was oddly…

    Columbia Road flower market: my favourite market in London

    A colourful Sunday morning in East London Sunday morning. East London, Columbia Road. There’s something in the air, something intense, vibrant. The street comes alive on Sunday, it’s like transformed into a heaven of colours, flowers and there’s a vivacious atmosphere: it’s the Columbia Road flower market! Everywhere you look you can see people carrying flowers and plants, hear the chant of the street artists, feel the scent of the flowers, the protagonists of this market. There are bulbs, bedding plants, herbs and an incredible range of cut flowers that you can buy for a few pounds. If you get there at 9 o’clock, it’s already crowded with shoppers. Traders…

    Proud of me!

    Great news: I passed the exam! It’s already three months that I came back home after my Au Pair experience in London, it’s really incredible how fast time flies. It seems to me yesterday that I was having dinner – the last dinner – with my host family and I was crying because I was leaving in some hours! I was about leaving my girls overall, so sad. It was July and now we’re in October, that’s crazy. And I haven’t been speaking in English for quite a long time already, so that’s why I decided that I have to start again. I always studied languages in my life, first…

    First steps in the AuPair world

    Hi, I’m back here again! Today I’d like to tell you something more about what I’d like to do on my blog: as I’ve already mentioned I’m gonna try to write articles in my own language, Italian, but in English as well. But while I’m writing more about my travels in my Italian section, I was thinking to dedicate the English section of my blog to tell you something more about my Aupair experience first and then I’ll also start writing about my adventures in English as well. I’ll do this because I think it makes more sense: I mean, I’m in London, I’m here to improve the language and…

This morning I woke up with a fixed idea in my mind: today my blog opens. The moment has come. My idea is…
