If you know me, you know that one of the most predictable things about me – besides taking a trip to Italy every.single.year. – is an almost absolute preference for all things Scandinavian. Never mind the fancy restaurant, take me to IKEA and you’ll make my day😊 Just kidding… actually, take me to IKEA and order some good food on the way and that will do it.read more
I have been away for a while… a bit of vacation, changing jobs, feeling a bit sick. Just life, mostly. On the vacation front, this means new places to write about, so do drop by soon for some new travel posts.
In the meantime, I realized I haven’t shared the AMA session I’ve been invited to hold recently, so I thought to do a quick post about it.read more
If you fear that you have read the title of this post wrong or that is has been somehow misspelled, rest assured, it is not the case. Parga really does exist, and it is a charming seaside town in the North-West of Greece. And when I say “charming”, I do not take the term lightly; this little gem will surprise you whether you are the “sun, sea and sand” type or, on the contrary, nothing of the sort.read more
Back on the creativity front, the search continues.
We’re not there yet, but haven’t abandoned the fight either and, as sometimes happens in life, opportunity presents itself like a rabbit out of a hat. Well, maybe not exaaaactly like that, but if you’ll have a look at the pictures below, you’ll realize what it is about this analogy that I found appealing.
If you’re in the mood for a quick getaway and you happen to live relatively close to the seaside, I would suggest to go for it and take a one-day trip to say hello to the sea. This works especially well when you’re not really the type to soak in the sun all day and prefer enjoying some good food and a walk on the sea shore.read more
Might be an abused principle or a Holy Grail, what’s for sure is that creativity it’s something most of us aspire for.
With the risk of sounding super stereotypical, must confess that lately I’m finding myself in kind of a struggle in this direction…which is a fancy way of saying that I’m totally lacking it. And it’s actually funny, because why would anybody create a blog if not because of creative overflow, doh?:)
Barcelona has been on my “to visit” list for a long time. It’s definitely safe to say that I had great expectations from visiting the city and I was quite looking forward to it. Yet, while I cannot say that I didn’t enjoy my time here, I can neither say that this was the love story I was expecting. And I’m thinking that this happened because I had a projection in mind and…well, you know, maybe this is not always a good thing, be it when we talk about travel or maybe anything else in life.read more
Black is always a good idea. If there’s one single advice that I could give this is it. Of course, it’s a matter of personal preference, but I do find that any clothing piece somehow looks better on black. It’s for sure the absence of noise that gives a black outfit its elegance, but the optical benefits are not to be overlooked, either.read more
Welcome back to the second article about Stockholm. Didn’t really plan to write a 2-part piece on this, but when I started writing, I just realized that there are too many things to include, hence the decision not to cram them all in a long text. Today we’re talking about places to visit here, using the word in its very broad definition.read more
Since starting the blog, we’ve been playing a lot with photography, trying to give the texts here that visual kick that hopefully would get them noticed.
Truth be told, although this is meant to be a storytelling driven space, I’ve been fully aware from the very beginning that great visuals are not merely a plus to the words, but quite simply a necessity. So this is not a post about me realizing that people do not spend anymore too much time reading and they prefer visual content, that’s a known trend nowadays and, beyond debating whether this is good or bad, I absolutely pledge for always producing and using good quality photo content.read more
