ROAD TRIP London to Edinburgh

"Bellissima e carissima Tess. 

Come mi divertirei ad avere trentun anni, 
me li berei come un buon vino . 
Sono stupendi i i trentuno, i trentadue, i trentatré, 
i trentaquattro, i trentacinque! 
Sono stupendi perché sono liberi, ribelli, 
perchè è finita l’angoscia dell’attesa, 
non è incominciata la malinconia del declino, 
perché siamo lucidi, finalmente, a trent’anni! 
Se siamo dubbiosi, siamo dubbiosi senza vergogna. 
E non temiamo le beffe dei ragazzi 
perché anche noi siamo giovani, 
non temiamo i rimproveri degli adulti 
perchè anche noi siamo adulti. 

Non temiamo il peccato perché abbiamo capito 
che il peccato è un punto di vista, 
non temiamo la disubbidienza 
perché abbiamo scoperto che la disubbidienza è nobile
 😊 Goditeli tutti questi anni preziosi."

Mia mamma

Today, it's my birthday : I'm 31
5 months ago I received my last paycheck and I am now living with my savings, it's scary sometimes but exciting at the same time! [here]
In June I moved to Lisbon to dedicate my time to my new projects and join my brother [ yes, Umberto used to live here for the last 3 years, funny enough after one week I was here, he received an offer for a PhD in Glasgow ... and I decided to stay! ].

So, tomorrow I'm going back to London, 3 days in town to arrange the deliveries of all I left to some friends when I was still thinking "yes, of course, I'll be back after summer".

The 21st my brother will join me there, we rent a car and leave for a road trip up to Glasgow, his final destination and home for the next 3 years.

We haven't planned the stops in details and we rather improvise, all we know up to now is that we have a car rented for the 21st in London Stanstead and the same day we are heading to a beautiful Bed&Breakfast in north London.

The journey is random and unplanned: I want to see the best towns and villages, even the remote once, eat in the most typical restaurants, stay in the local bed and breakfast and guest houses, meet with local artisans and makers... any suggestions please get in touch!

I have my flight back from Edinburgh on the 28th and I will keep you updated via instagram and fb as always, plus some article in case of something amazing to show. I've also created a Facebook event so that is easier to get in touch maybe! ^_^

Let's meet for a coffee along the way?

Confessions of a dreamer

in the process to become location independent

 C I A O MOODers !!!

Chiedo scusa in anticipo [ e ringrazio ] a chi ha seguito queste pagine sin dall'inizio e da un po' di tempo, spesso, si trova davanti a lunghi racconti unicamente in inglese. 
La verità, è che la mia vita ultimamente è vissuta in inglese e ho difficoltà ad esprimere pensieri e ragionamenti, o raccontare esperienze in una lingua diversa da quella in cui li sto vivendo. Non voglio perdervi, prometto che alcuni prossimi contenuti saranno in italiano. 
Il fatto è che voglio anche che questo spazio di web sia autentico e onesto, e i contenuti in italiano vissuti in italiano. So che magari non ha senso quello che dico, ma è essatamente ciò che sento.

I have to say that, in fact, I am already location independent, and this is actually the only fixed point in my life right now!

This started 5 months ago, when I decided to leave my safe job in London, to move to Lisbon and started to define the first steps of a new adventure, soon realising I probably took a very quick decision [that's so me :/ ] and had not much clue on what to do and how to start.

calm and relaxed, silent, almost meditative

A field of water betrays the spirit that is in the air. 

It is continually receiving new life and motion from above.

 It is intermediate in its nature between land and sky.

Henry David Thoreau

Blossoms in the bush is a MOOD,

romantic, cosy and elegant

The more often we see the things around us,
 even the beautiful and wonderful things,
the more they become invisible to us. 
That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: 
the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds,
even those we love. 

Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.

Joseph B. Wirthlin

SHADED SPRUCE is the perfect colour for September

and I am ready to move to Lisbon

It's not blue, it's not green, SHADED SPRUCE is a dark shade of teal

... and it's one of my favourite colours. It's deeply intense and with a strong personality but still, has the ability to perfectly match with many different colours and shades line a neutral tone.

Shades spruce is the colour of the deep waters, of the thick forests of Canada, it's the shade where you can abandon your thoughts to freedom, without shutting the eyes.
