The aliens are coming – watch out Campi Flegrei!

In only four days, I will be on my way to go back to Italy, to Campi Flegrei. About six months ago I left, after having spent 3 months as an intern in connection to my education in International Hospitality Management. It was 3 months which greatly affected my life. It was a huge challenge and an amazing experience. Although, by the end of my … Continue reading The aliens are coming – watch out Campi Flegrei!

Culture shock

It’s been almost two months since I left Italy and Campi Flegrei, and during this time I have not been active on this blog. Some might think it is because the purpose of the blog was to document my stay down there, and therefore lost its purpose as soon as I left. But the truth is that I didn’t feel like writing.

And I hope they would describe me as open-minded, outgoing, friendly and sociable. That’s what I thrive to be. I love being around other people and making new friends. Well, going to a … Continue reading Isolation
