About Me

Hi there!

I'm an Italian traveler from the Dolomites, willing to explore Africa with my backpack!
I've already traveled across Mozambique and Malawi and I've just headed into South Africa!

I have an academic background in Politics and International Relations for Cooperation, and I'm mainly focused on humanitarian and development aid. After six years of University and seven months in Mozambique, I decided to take some time off to enjoy travelling, figuring out what I wanna do next etc...I guess this will also entail some inner work and a good dose of wine, yoga and music!

I climbed for many years, and still do it sometimes, I like mountain running (but jogging along the beach is also not that bad), and hiking. I would be glad to try surfing or paragliding.I like hearing and writing stories (should I call it storytelling?) and photographing.

It would be great meeting local people, who could make me dig deeper into places and culture.

Looking forward to meeting new inspiring people..and to hear your story!
