Hi! Happy New Year for everybody! After a loooong break (and an amazing trip for some more spots in Europe – yes, I wanna rule the world!) I am finally back. Carrying only one RyanAir sized bag, I’ve been to 5 cities in 12 days. Quite a challenge! But if there’s something out there that I learned quite well is that the less things you carry, the farther you go. And I’ve gone far… From Milan to Helsinki. From Helsinki to Riga (even if for only one night). From Riga to Brussels. From Brussels to Bruges (and the way back). From Brussels to Amsterdam (and the way back again). And from Brussels to Milan, my home, my cozy bed, and 3 entire days of sleeping to recover. On my way to these places I was always picking friends and bringing with me – in the first day I was completely alone, while in New Year’s Eve we were 5 already, five crazy girls
watching the fireworks crying, singing and drinking at Leidseplein Square in Amsterdam.
I’ll begin from the beginning: Helsinki, Finland, the place where since last Christmas I dream to spend some days at. This year, exceptionally, there was no white Christmas there – something disappointing even for locals! But I had Livia instead, a good friend of mine since I was a 14-year-old-purpled-hair annoying teenager. And she hosted me at her place, showed me the best spots in town, told me the best stories and prepared the best salmon I’ve ever had!
