Martinica, l’isola dei fiori (Italian only)

L’estate oramai iniziata e la voglia di mare e’ scoppiata! Ed e’ per questo che ho chiesto la collaborazione dell’amica blogger Sabrina di Appunti di Viaggio by Seven Days di farci conoscere un posto nuovo, lontano, incantevole, da sogno: la Martinica! Ci sarei dovuta andare con una cara amica tanti anni fa’ per fare un corso di francese, almeno questa era la scusa eheh, ma poi ahime’ cambiammo idea. Per fortuna che c’e’ Sabrina che ci raccontera’ la meraviglia di questo luogo. Buona lettura! ———- // ———- Uno dei miei ultimi viaggi è stato a Martinica, un’isola meravigliosa delle Antille Francesi, nei Caraibi. Quest’isola è la meta ideale per rilassarsi e vivere a contatto con la natura. Non a caso è conosciuta come l’isola dei fiori ed ha una temperatura media di 26° tutto l’anno! Il mio viaggio a Martinica  inizia all’aereoporto nazionale di Lamentin, dove affitto una macchina per potermi dirigere a sud dell’isola. A mio parere l’auto è il miglior mezzo per muoversi su quest’isola. La mia prima tappa è Saint-Luce, un caratteristico …

Needing an Unconventional Xmas Gift Idea? Want to support a Special Project? “On the Glo” is the way to go!!! // State cercando un’idea regalo originale per Natale? Magari supportando un Progetto Speciale? Ecco la soluzione: “On the Glo”!!!

Well, how did I find about the “On The Glo” Project? As most times, through a dear friend. We were catching up after a while, since I moved to Australia. When you’re far away you’re more prone to tell about yourself, your dreams, your projects, and so on. And so I did share with Titti my interest and passion towards jewellery and the desire of keeping this passion alive and maybe creating something in the future. The entrepreneurship theme seems to be a pretty trendy topic lately, although I’ve known it all my life somehow, unconsciously or not, since I was a kid, but had to go through a lot of amazing, exciting and interesting experiences before understanding my motivation, interests, etc… in short myself more deeply. And that’s when Titti told me about “On the Glo”, her sister’s project. So here’s my interview to uncover this fantastic Project! It’s a useful thing, it’s a fashionable thing, that keeps you safer and also an unconventional Xmas gift idea for you! You really need to read …

3 days to visit Kangaroo Island, a Honeymoon destination for Italians, not explored as much as it deserved by Aussies

Kangaroo Island as experienced by my mother. Guest Post written by Beatrice Porrati with some “add-ons” by me. Let’s start – How to get there? For example, from Melbourne take a flight to Adelaide, then rent a car and drive until Cape Jervis, roughly 1 hour and 40 minutes, so if you are arriving on Friday night, you might want to think of spending the night somewhere halfway or close to Cape Jervis. 40 minutes on the ferry and you’ll reach Penneshaw, one of the little town on the Island. Here, before starting your visit through the third biggest island of Australia, you can stop for coffee & cake or a quick lunch at Ultima tule Cafe’. Kangaroo Island is simply beautiful: three days is the minimum stay to have a taste of its nature, wilderness and peaceful life. But if you have more time you can stay all week to appreciate its people, environment and culture. The people who live here are mostly farmers and fishermen, but there are also some artists. Approximately 4.600 …

Saigon – An Eu(Pho)ric Experience! // Saigon – un’esperienza eu(Pho)rica!

From time to time guests, bloggers or just casual writers, give the honour of writing a post on my blog, which enriches my blog with different experiences and point of views. Very much appreciated! ~~~~~~~ Here, for example, is a culinary experience written by Carlo Tagliabue. It’s easy to get lost in the maze of Asian food – such a variety of flavours, colours and tastes that leaves a novice like me always baffled when staring at menus of traditional eateries. And navigating dish descriptions and ingredients does often not help (what again is Horapa??). So one starts to find his own bearings with some iconic dishes. These might clearly label you as a tourist, but they are at first a safe bet to leave the restaurant with a full belly and can become later on the starting point for a more extensive exploration into the unchartered territory of that country’s food scene. When it comes to Vietnam’s vast culinary ocean, my own safety raft is Pho. A typical noodle soup consisting of broth and …
