Hello there!

If you are curious to know a bit more about me, check my about me page. Learn more by checking out my post why I abandoned academia to start traveling and blogging by reading How I went from being a bored academic to a fun and free blogger. Find out where I am from by reading Where is Sardinia, anyways?

Funny stuff

We all have some tragic yet hilarious moments when we travel. Read about my memorable adventure in San Blas or meet some of the funniest characters I have encountered during my travels on Eleven persons I have met during a guided tour and you would not want in yours – warning, some may well be me! You can also discover why I think I am an unsuccessful backpacker.

And if you care to find out how totally reckless I can be at times, read How I got to one of the best beaches in Sardinia (and almost killed myself there).

Lessons learned

Despite my academic background, I can’t help thinking that travel has been my best teacher. My post on the lessons I have learned travelling in Latin America explains why.

Countries I love and destination guides

I have travelled widely in the last few years and fell in love with so many countries. Don’t ask me which one is my favourite because really, I don’t have one and I would go back to (almost) all of them. I also enjoy spreading my love and encourage you all to visit them through some very comprehensive yet concise guides. So, here are a few examples of some posts that may get you started in planning your next trip.

    Hi Claudia
    Just stumbled across your story on Cuba. It was so helpful. I am planning a trip to Cuba next year with my girlfriend. We both love latin music, dance and beaches and all of natures wonders. It seems we are on the same page! My love for travel, culture and meeting other travellers is and addiction of mine. I am looking forward to reading more about your travels. Hopefully when I get closer to going to Cuba I can ask you a few questions. Thank you Jools

    Ciao Claudia,
    che meraviglia scoprire il tuo blog grazie all’articolo su La Nuova Sardegna. Non conoscevo questo bellissimo spazio di un’isolana come me (io sono di Alghero). Ti seguirò d’ora in poi 🙂
