Sharing My World through SYW

Thank you Cee for your questions!




Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

Maybe it is because there are not so many elevators where I live, I have never really thought about it. I guess I can’t remember when it was the last time I took an elevator. But I believe I push the button only once.

Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (for example if you are visiting a big city you don’t know?)

Well, I am not obsessed by details and the planning. However,  I don’t really like when I am totally unprepared.  So I prefer to jot down a “scaffolding ” idea of a “to do or to see” list. Then, once I am on a plane or  a car, I am aware that something will not go as expected, and I find myself strangely relaxed and in the hands of destiny,  but with no anxiety.  This is so not typically of me when I am at home. It seems a different me pops out when  I travel.

Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words.

OK.  I am honest, I need to think about it.

1 – naive (in a positive way, i.e. genuine)

2 – creative

3 – good listener

4 – extremely curious

If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert? 

Fresh water lakes. Possibly in my beloved Italian or Austrian Alps. It is every time a Sound of music atmosphere to me.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Grateful I am alive.  Looking forward a school trip to Rome… and hope to survive it!



Back to you – Back to SYW

After a long long time (due to work, family and the usual issues) I am back for a SYW and also for sharing some photos I took today in Chioggia, a tiny village near Venice, so called little Venice, where I’ve just discovered the oldest tower clock in the world! Such amazing treasures near my home  and I didn’t know it. But this is another story, new blog posts will follow in the next days or weeks. Let’s start with Cee’s SYW now 😉

Here are my answers:

Ever ran out of gas in your vehicle?

To be honest I almost run out of gas every week, but I manage to arrive to the next petrol station and be safe for another week. I believe once it will happen to me too, to totally run out of gas. Till then, I’ll keep on being positive and believe my gas is infinite…

Which are better: black or green olives?

Even if I am Italian, I really don’t like olives. Green or black.

If you were a great explorer, what would you explore?

I would explore the North Pole and wait to see amazing boreal auroras. That is also my dream… I believe I won’t be able to fulfill it, however a dream is always a dream.

My First Share SYW


Would you prefer to receive a unicycle, bicycle, tricycle or motorcycle?

A bicycle. And then use it! Go cycling all around Europe with my kids.

What is one thing you’d like to accomplish this year?

Keeping on feeling happy. I guess nobody can feel totally happy, there are always ups and downs around the corner, but being aware of being loved and accepting some life failures has helped me much last month.

What was one of the highlights of 2016 for you?

2016 has been a really tough year for me, as a woman, as a wife. In this very moment I can’t see many highlights, but I guess my kids are always there to remind me how lucky I am. So this is why I keep on smiling and being resilient.

Would you prefer to fly a kite or fly in a hot air balloon?

A kite. Hot air balloon?! 😨

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am grateful for my family’s health and love.

I am looking forward my brother’s wedding. It will be quite an International wedding, so happy to be part of it.
