Impressions from places and people around the Earth

About Me

Hi! I’m Annalisa, a full time researcher of uplifting places and communities.

I was born and bred in Roma, Italy but I feel at home in many places in the world. I travel to ground myself and heal myself.

My favorite arts are photography, writing, listening. In this blog I share my impressions and intuition about the people and places I experience.

This is all to inspire you. Enjoy

“This world is but a canvas to our imagination.”

Henri David Thoreau

Travel Italy With Me

“If you can’t live longer, live deeper.”

Italian proverb

I specialise in planning trips to my home country, Italy.

My favourite areas and the ones I know like the back of my hand, are the small towns and coastlines between Rome and Naples and Rome and Florence.

I also love planning tours that explore the beautiful island of Sicily.

I specialise in creating tours that combine wandering cities filled with arts and culture with relaxing in nature.

Experience The World With me

“Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places”

Roald Dahl

The pull towards distant places has been with me forever, sometimes in the background, but sometimes it was overflowing. I studied foreign languages because I knew one day I would fly away. My heart was waiting for me in Asia, ever since I had met Buddhism through a book about Tibet on my auntie’s bookshelf.

In 2011, after trying different jobs in Italy and graduating from university, I moved to China. The transfer was a leap into the unknown, but I was more than happy to leave a place that was offering me so many disappointments.
