용마랜드 Yongma Land, South Korea | Take note and go.

When I was first introduced to 용마랜드 Yongmaland, I remember I felt particularly confused. I had never heard about it before, and when I was suggested by a Korean friend to reach an abandoned amusement park and have a walk there, I had no clue why someone should ever recommend a place like that for a day trip and, above all, why someone should ever accept. 
However I did it, and thanks to my curious attitude I visited one of the most IN places in Seoul for Instagrammer wannabes and more.

Il cimitero delle fontanelle might be the creepiest place on earth | Take note and go.

Going to Napoli on Halloween time? Looking for spooky spots which can creep you out during your trip to Italy? YOU ARE READING THE RIGHT POST, my dear crazy reader!

Napoli is not only about the Vesuvio, the sea, the best pizza and tens of foods which are a real attempt to your diet projects. They certainly play an important role in making this city one of the unmissable destinations, but Napoli has a lot more to offer. Think about something you’d like to visit somewhere in the world and this city will please you: it basically has anything you would be willing to visit, included a cave full of well-disposed bones and skulls.

DMZ, South Korea | Travel Chronicles.

Visiting the DMZ has always been my dream, ever since I started cultivating a certain interest in the Korean political situation. I was indeed fascinated by the history of these two countries, the divergences in their current lifestyle, culture and language; I was intrigued by the relationship they established throughout the years and its slow changes that finally led to the celebrated meeting of the last 18th of April. This topic had always had a heavy emotional impact on me and when I was offered the chance to visit the Demilitarized Zone, namely the border area corresponding to the 38th parallel separating the two Koreas, I didn’t hesitate and immediately paid for the tour.

ECOnscious travels | An introduction to my very first blog column

September 2018: I type the so-called eco words on Google and a new world unfolds before my eyes.

If I were asked, I wouldn’t be able to explain how and why I suddenly developed an interest in the ethical lifestyle, but I guess it’s something common to everyone who uncovers the Maya veil and discovers what used to be concealed by simple lack of knowledge.
The process is simple: it only requires a dull moment, a faint but alluring voice in your head and a research engine. A dollop of intrinsic thirst for knowledge certainly plays an important role, but free time and boredom ultimately are the fundamental ingredients.
So it happened: I typed some eco keywords on the search bar and I let the internet open my eyes to the ecological matter. Read More

부산 BUSAN, South Korea | Travel Chronicles.

The reason why I haven’t posted anything in the last 6 months or so is linked to the biggest event of my 2018, and possibly of my entire life so far: thanks to a scholarship won with a contest held by my University, I had the chance to study at Sungkyunkwan University, in Seoul, for one semester as an exchange student. Even though I had promised myself to keep up with my blog project, life, fortunately, hit me harder than expected: there wasn’t a day I was given to rest, I fully lived any single moment and experience I was offered. If on one side this meant to set aside the blog for months, on the other I collected so many memories that now I have plenty of topics and places to talk about in my digital diary.
Given the necessary introduction, I want to make my comeback today with a travel chronicle of my trip to Busan, in the hope it can usher in a new chapter of my blog!

Shakespeare’s Globe Theater stole my heart | Take note and go.

Some people accuse it to be a waste of space, some others answer back highlighting its importance as a cultural centre in the city of London: I simply say I like this place and I willingly could spend my time in it, quoting the bag I bought there as a souvenir.

MONTRÉAL, Québec | Travel Chronicles.

The first thing I would say if they asked me to describe Montréal is “it’s like New York City, but smaller”.
There is a high chance I just talk no sense since I have never been to NY, but this is the impression I had considering the typical landscape I get to enjoy in movies set in the Big Apple.

Rione Fornelle and its painted poetry | Take note and go.

That day I got lost and I found myself wandering around neighbourhoods of Salerno I had never been to before, I discovered an incredible place where I could enjoy street art and get overwhelmed by the beauty of verses written on walls. I didn’t simply walk around forgotten areas of the city, I roamed through poetry.
