About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be inspired every day. Enjoying random acts of kindness. And people's beautiful souls!

ABOUT ME

I SHOULD DEFINITELY FIND TIME TO UPDATE MY PROFILE... I will, I promise!

Five years ago I quit my job, and started travelling as a lifestyle, my biggest dream. I met my better half in Hungary (Davide), he inspired me to join him hitchhiking and to think sustainable for me and the world I'm leaving in. Now we are sharing the same life, moving like nomads from one place to another driven by a sense of wonder, living in the present time and taking gratefully opportunities as they come. We learn so much from tons of inspiring people and experiences and each time we discover ourselves a little bit more and we transform in a better version because of them. We want to bring our own contribution in making a better world based on sharing and community living, but we still have much to learn on the subject and until we find a way to put those ideas in practice, we share our lifes with the world on a travel blog nomadtravellers.com. Because I experienced it, I know for myself that despite all troubleling times, the world is filled with kindness.

PHILOSOPHY

I liked a quote I first heard in Kung Fu Panda (now I know it wasn't the old turtle the first to say it;). It goes like this: " Yesterday is history, Tomorrow's a mystery, but Today is a gift. That's why it's called present".
I'm trying to follow also another saying that I like (I even don't remember where I heard it): "Happiness is the highest form of health".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

*The best Norhtern Lights of 2012 (it was the strongest solar storm of the year, and I was in the perfect place at the right moment to enjoy a breathtaking show for 6 hours).
* Being stuck hitchhiking in the snow, and sleeping in a toilet to survive the cold
* The top of Merapi volcano, the most active vulcano in Indonesia. The view was so stunning and apocaliptic that I thought I'm going to faint for a second..
* Living and travelling 1 year in Indonesia
* Hassankeyf, an historical cave village of Batman province, Turkey, Calcata a revived village on top of a hill in the surroundings of Rome, that was taking over by artists from around the world, Cinque Terre's vineyards, The pink Flamingoes from Camargue, Komodo Dragons of Flores Archipelago, the view of Rinjany volcano, the "flying gibons" and the lasy urangutans in Borneo, Khao Sok national park and floating houses in Thailand, Valbona hike in Albania etc. etc.
* and strangers offering their hospitality on the road without even asking for it, those are my top experiences in fact!

Teach, Learn, Share

For the moment: want to learn alternative ways of living, traditional crafts, sustainable development, building with natural materials, movie making, piano etc. and want to share all that I know, so if you think I have something valuable, something you can be interested in, I'm more than happy to share it with you.
