“My God is the God of the wayfarers”

I am not a religious person. I was raised Catholic, I did all the Church steps till I was a teenager. Then I started to think, and I realized that I did not find myself in that. I believe in humans. I believe that their abilities are far bigger than we realize. I believe that … Continue reading “My God is the God of the wayfarers”

The Portuguese way

I left Italy many years ago. Since then I have been happy, and I have been sad. I have been explaining over and over the Italian gestures and I had fun every time. I left many people on the way.

In search of the Christmas glory

I’ve always loved wintertime. The cold, the sparkle of fresh snow, the sound when you walk on icy sidewalks. Baking cookies, having tea, reading books under a warm blanket. I just love it. Especially Christmas. This time of the year when you go home to see your family and friends to simply be together and … Continue reading In search of the Christmas glory

You don’t have a Christmas Gift? – Worry no longer!

Hey everyone, okay, honestly I am quite nervous to write the first blog entry here. Isn't it annoying how you always think people judge you? Well, maybe that is just me. Anyways, we shouldn't say or not say something because of being afraid to be judged or valued in any way...
