10+ things about myself… Liebster Award part 1

A Liebster Award is given by one blogger to another blogger whose work you like, Liebster comes from the German word for favourite or beloved.And I’m so happy that the nomination arrived from an UK blog that I really like, NyLon Living… thanks Shobha for nominating Italian Bark among your fav blogs!
It’s a also funny way to tell something more about myself
(actually I almost never do this on my blog!) and also to suggest you other great blogs I love.

What’s your favourite city in the world?
London. I love London and I feel nostalgic about when I used to live there…
but actually when I was there I felt nostalagic about Venice.
So maybe, I have to answer with two cities: London and Venice.
They are completely different but I love both of them: one for its way of life, its cross-cultural population, its dynamism…the other simply for its beauty, and for each corner of it, it’s incredible,

I‘ve been there million of times, but I always find something new to love!

What is a favourite childhood memory?
All my favourite childwood memories come from the countryside where I’ve grown.
Definetely the favourite ones are the long afternoons spent playing outside in the big garden!
That’s maybe why now I love staying in the open air and I’m so frustrated about working in a office!!!
(but you can’t be forever a child, do you?)


If you won the lottery, what would you do?
No doubt. I would travel the whole world. From Australia to Alaska, from Bahli to the Andes…

oh no don’t make me think about this, I’m already travelling with my mind!!

What’s your favourite room in your house?
It’s my living. I live in a small house and this is the bigger room,
which I can decorate with all the unusual objects and souvenirs from my travels,
as I enjoy having objects which remind me of the places I visit

In a fire, what is the one possession you would save?
All my blocks, diaries and notebooks from past years…
because you cannot buy them again and there’s so much work on them!!

How have you changed in the last 10 years?
Well, I’ve changed a lot in the last ten years…but the most relevant thing I’ve noticed it that ten years ago, when I was twenty, I used to care so much about what people thought about me as to influence
also some of mine behaviors and decisions…
Now I feel much more indipendent, maybe stronger and with clearer ideas, so I do things for what I think,

what I love and what I feel better for my future!


What’s the one thing you never leave home without?
My Iphone. Definetely. Everytime I use it (so….like one hundred times a day ;P)
I think about how great inventions can change your life in a positive way!


What’s the one temptation you can not resist?
Pizza! I should avoid from eating it but I just can’t.
I could be able to dinner every evening with a coke and a pizza for all my life 🙂
