About Me

Quitted my job to travel the Americas driving a yellow VW!

I grew up in a small sea city in north Italy and moved to the UK in 2011. My family is half German, originally from Frankfurt. While in the Uk I studied at the University of Southampton and became a cardiology nurse. I lived in Southampton for about 7 years and I just quit my job to go exploring the world. I have been married to Ricky for 5 years. Together we planned this lifetime trip and it is now time to go.
I love going back to my hometown as much as I love travelling to new destinations. I love the sea and nature. I love animals and respect any forms of life (even viruses can be worthy!). I have an interest in social sciences and I like learning about all the different cultures. To me there is nothing more important than justice and fairness.
I also enjoy outdoor activities like camping, trekking, rock climbing, swimming, scuba diving..but also enjoy a good night at the movies or a good book.
