The year is finishing, 2018, has been a year full of positive but also negative and difficult experiences. I’m leaving it trying to remember what has been more significant and saying thanks still and always because, in spite of everything, the pillars of my life are still with me!
THE POSITIVE 2018
Among the positive things is surely the birth of my blog, made possible by the help of a friend known in the net. The blog, with big surprise, had a very good begin even if the path was steep! In December I received a pair of great satisfactions for me: two interviews, one for the travel blog Aroundtheworld, and the other for our local radio “Radio Lombardia Live Social” to present my work on the blog. In this last case I proved myself trying to overcome my fear of exposing me, without giving it up. This is for me an important milestone.
Also this year, even if I didn’t do so big travels, I could create those suitable for me and for my budget: the travel to Portugal on the road, was more exciting and richer than I could expect, like the days spent in the beautiful town of Ravenna in the North of Italy. Then a lot of day trips always with my GoPro bought at the beginnig the year aftrvsome sacrifices.
I don’t know if this happens also to you, but in life there’s not always space to do what we like, in my case to travel! I think to represent with my blog most of people that sometimes have to spend money for more important reason than a travel, maybe to buy a house or something similar! If you have normal salaries and children to grow, you can have difficulties to leave, but don’t worry!
My blog is here for this reason: to give you some ideas not to give up to travel a little bit, even if you don’t have so much money waiting for better periods.
In my private life I met Elisa who helped me to create the logo of my blog and my visit cards! Reslly a good friendship between us and also our children!
Always in my private life I would shout a big big thanks to Sabrina who contributed to enrich my blog with her guest post, and with a lot of professional suggestions coming from her important work experience, and to Serena Zig Zag Viaggi Lecco who always believes in me and in my blog, even when I don’t believe in it anymore, and supports me with a lot of encouragements! I love you!
The beginning of the new middle school for Giada was a great step forward: I’ve seen her better than at the elementary school, inside a stimulating environment full of comprehension , with teachers who can valorize her, looking at her stŕenghts. I’ve seen her self esteem growing day by day!
It’s also born a beautiful frindeship, this time online, with nata Annalisa of the blog “Pensieri dal Mondo”: her husband and she are inveterate travellers; they have travelled all over the world and they’re doing it still now! I think they’ve been really so everywhere, that they should restart frkm the beginning, but do you kmow what’s the good thing about them? They are always themselves, simple, kind and accessible persons. I sometimes notice a great ostentation in some travel bloggers or in some travel groups, as if they would do a race to see who travels more and who chooses the best destinations! Knowing that there are persons conscious of their fortunes but still humble, make me happy! Perhaps not all the world is lost! Thank you Annalisa and Beppe! If you’d like to know them to do the same or simply to dream, click on thhe screenshot of their blog here below!
There’s another travel blog who has a graet ability to let us dream through her articles and she’s a very sensitiv and unselfish person: her “heart travels” are a witness! Rare to fond such a person in Internet but also in life! Thanks also to you Domenica of the blog “Spunti di Viaggio”, you always help me to spread my articles through your group!
THE NEGATIVE 2018
The worst period for me was when I run the risk to loose my husband because of an accident at work: I wouldn’t have supportde yhis lack at all! Fortunately, after a emergency surgical intervention, all worked out, even if the period after the intervention was for me long and hard.
After a little while my daughter, who fainted because of a virus, was hospitalized: I got so scared when I saw her lying on the floor!
The problems and the discussion with Giada’s teachers for the first part of the year: petty and dull persons who tried to criticize us as parents, but we fortunately left them in June forever!
The delusion because of some friends’ behaviour: every year I feel increasingly alone and resigned, but I have to get used to! Certain persons will ever change!
THE YEAR IS GOING TO COME
We don’t have in program big things, but life is unpredictable and we’ll do our best to pull it towards positive things. Above all, I hope to inspire you again to let you know new places and begin new trips!
In the meanwhile, to leave the old year and to welcome the new one, I want to teach you a little hawaian prayer that I know thanks to my friend Simona: it doesn’t have religion and I practice it daily; a little trick that helps me in difficult moments, but helps me also to appreciate more the most beautiful and perfect ones. Like me leave the old year and welcome the new one with:
Do you know it? It’s a very simple you can do everywhere to thank Universe for everything received, or to say sorry when you can’t see the positive in your life events.
It says so: I LOVE YOU – THANK YOU – I’M SORRY – FORGIVE ME
You can repeat this mantra for some minutes,, I ensure you that this words have a very big power: you can feel immediately better! Do you know that more positive your mind can give, and more positive you’re going to receive? Try and then tell me…
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU, MY DEAR FOLLOWER….
THANKS THANKS THANKS (Ho’oponopono)
I WISH THAT 2019 WILL BE THE YEAR OF YOUR DREAM !
A sincere virtual hug!

THE MEANING OF TRAVEL FOR ME
In the last years I follow what Dalai Lama says:” At least once a year go to a place you’ve never been before”.
After years of sufferings and sacrifices, I’ve decided that life is too short and too unpredictable to continue waiting to do what I like and what makes me happy.
I like exploring the world where I live, take photos of it in general but also in its details, film it to hold back those subtle emotions that you could forget over time, and in the end share with you what I’ve seen and felt through my articles.
Travel is for me Love – Freedom – Gratitude
