What you'll find on this Travel Blog:
I opened my first travel blog in 2006, to keep my friends updated about my Erasmus studies in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The blog was hosted on Splinder.com, an early italian blogging platform. I continued to blog until 2009, when I was traveling Australia on a “Working Holiday” visa.
Back to Italy in 2010, a series of unfortunate events prevent me from traveling for more than two years, and consequently I put my travel blog on a pause.
In 2012 Splinder closed down before I knew it, and I lost almost everything I had written so far.
Having a new travel blog where to publish my travel tips and stories is something that I kept postponing for several years. Until I went back to work in the digital field full time (an old passion of mine). “Leave! The Dream” was born, my brand new “Surf Travel Blog”, where to post about my former and current travels.
On “Leave! The Dream” you will find:
- Travel Stories and funny misadventures of mine while traveling around the world.
- Useful travel tips & travel hacks
- Country cards for the destinations I have visited.
- The travel quotes that motivated me most to to travel “full time”.
- “Living the dream”: a section of interviews with savvy travelers who live their dream day by
- Tips about how to learn Kitesurfing, and funny anecdotes of my career as a Kite and Surf I
