My first crazy day in Yogyakarta

March 12, 2015 // 0 Comments

When I left Bali to go to Java I was not expecting adventures 24/7, I thought I would have taken my time and relaxed a bit but every single day on the island was unexpectedly crazy! I arrived in Yogyakarta the 28th of February, I left my backpack in the hostel and went to explore the city straight away. The first impression was not that good, I did not feel safe and the heat was killing me even if it was only 9 am. Quando ho deciso di lasciare Bali per andare a Java, sapevo che avrei visto posti bellissimi ma mai mi sarei aspettata di vivere 7 giorni di avventura continua. Sono arrivata a Yogyakarta il 28 febbraio e, dopo aver lasciato il mio […]

Teaching english in Bali

March 3, 2015 // 0 Comments

I love kids, that’s why I enjoy to be an au pair so much, I really wanted to go to a school while I was in Bali, I just didn’t know how to get in one. The manager of the hostel where I was staying suggested me to just go to the local school and talk to the main teacher and ask him if I could teach English to the kids for a couple of hours. I did it and everyone was so happy to have someone to help the kids improving, Indonesian people are  very curious about us, they love getting into contact with us, especially if we can teach them something good.   I bambini mi piacciono moltissimo, per questo ho lavorato come […]

The second day I was in Ubud, I decided to visit the Monkey Forest. I had heard horrible stories about monkeys jumping on people ‘s back, biting them and stealing sparkling things from them and I was kind of worried. I took off all of my bracelets and earring ( and people that know me know I never take them off because they’re too many) and walked to the forest. The entrance was 30.000 Rpe  and You can actually see the monkeys even before getting into the forest because they walk around the street looking for food. Around 600 monkeys live in the sacred forest and they are all macaques.   Il secondo giorno che sono stata ad Ubud, ho deciso di visitare la foresta […]

This is how I climbed my first volcano

February 27, 2015 // 0 Comments

I was on my way to the hostel when a man on the street asked me if I wanted to to climb the Batur mountain for 300.000Rpe, by instinct I said another agency told me they could do it for 200.000, It wasn’t true of course but It helped me to pay 250.000 instead of the full price! Batur is an active volcano located in the middle of two concentric calderas,its last eruption was in 2000 and on his side there’s the largest crater lake in Bali: lake Batur. I woke up at 2 am and waited for the driver at the entrance of my hostel, he was late and I started to freak out because my phone doesn’t work and I didn’t know how […]

First day in Indonesia

February 20, 2015 // 0 Comments

First night & day in Indonesia gone! First thing I noticed once I got off of the plane was the strong spicy smell and the boiling hot air, I liked the first one and I hated the second one, especially because I was  wearing winter trousers (the only pair that didn’t fit in my backpack) a jumper and holding at least 18Kg on my shoulders. It took me a while to find my driver(I managed to have someone to pick me up and take me to the hotel), I’ve been offered deals by at least 15 taxi drivers and I finally found my man after half an hour. The hotel was nice but a bit out of the centre, I booked a room just for myself […]

Today I want to talk about Airlie Beach, which not only It has been the place where my travel mates and I stopped for longer during the 5 weeks of the road trip but also the place where We paid the least for an accommodation  that in my opinion was way better than all the other hostels We stayed in.   Oggi vi parlerò di Airlie Beach che non solo è stato il luogo in cui i miei compagni di viaggio ed io ci siamo fermati più a lungo durante il road trip, ma anche il posto in cui abbiamo pagato di meno per alloggiare.   WHERE IS AIRLIE BEACH? Airlie Beach is a locality in the Whitsunday region, in Queensland. It’s very popular among […]

Camogli is a small village in Liguria, Italy. You can visit It in one hour, yes It is that small! You don’ t want to miss It  if You’re around Genoa. It offers a very romantic and poetic scenery and It is quite nice to walk around  eating “gelato” . Camogli è un piccolo villaggio che si trova in Liguria, Italia. E’ talmente piccolo che lo si può visitare in un’ora! Se vi trovate a Genova, vale la pena vederlo perchè è molto caratteristico e la vista  sul mare e la chiesetta è unica nel suo genere . Se  il tempo è bello, concedetevi una passeggiata lungomare mangiando un buon gelato e rilassatevi!   There is a very cool place in Camogli called “Pirata Bar” which is a pub […]

This is my third month in Melbourne and I feel like I can finally write more about the  city. I’m going to start with some history because I think It’ s very important on the way to understand better the developement of the city (don’ t worry I ‘m really not into history so I won’t be boring) , I will then give You a generic idea of what Melbourne looks like and  I will finish telling You some curiousities about the city. Sono ormai tre mesi che vivo a Melbourne e finalmente sento di poter scrivere su questa città. Inizierò parlando delle sue origini (non mi dilungherò molto, anche perchè storia era una delle materie che odiavo di più a scuola, ma credo sia utile per […]
