Istanbul is really an amazing city. Once landing I chose to take a bus with a guide in order to introduce me to the town and give me a first insight to this country. I was pretty shocked to hear that Istanbul is a city with 16 million of people counting the city centre, the surrounding areas and neighbourhoods. Bigger than New York, and the most populated in Europe and the second largest city in the world. When I was on the bus, the night I was leaving the town, I remembered these words spoken by the guide because it taken almost three hours from the town to the airport. This city is limitless.

An old man said “Dont go there today”
Beatty was the closest town to Death Valley entrance, 121 miles north of Las Vegas, Nevada. This is the last and weirdest experience I lived in my west US trip driving through deserts.
As I said before in this blog, deserts are places that always attracted me. I love getting lost in the middle of nowhere, where the silence gets very irrepressible and the temperature, with the sense of aloneness, catapults you in an timeless period. This is the reason because I decided to travel across the west US, a land where you can drive for hundreds miles without coming across anything.
There are no places like deserts. For many reason. The most reasonable one is that the desert is a place you cannot come across anything. An inhospitable land where humans keep themselves away from it. You can do nothing when you are through it, apart the awareness of being in an uninhabited unknown place not made for being dwelling for human beings. When you drive or walk in the desert, probably the first though you have in mind is that, anyway, you have to be getting outside from it sooner or later so you probably will be safe and away from that desolate land and scenario.

Since I still not have so many readers I want to apologise to those who came across reading my blog for not having posted for months.
I don’t like finding excuses and say apologise for what I haven’t done, but I had to do something urgent in the past last weeks.
First of all, in the eve of my birthday, I got a call from my mom saying my fahter was being taken to the hospital for breathing disease. I have to admit that I’m accustomed to having my fahter in-patient because his health problems. Continue reading
I’ve thought a lot in my life about which job would be the right one for me. I’ve been thinking for many years about how I could have found the right work that suited me best.
After the degree, I got a Master to have better chances to get a better job but I still had no idea what job I was going to do in that period. And, to be honest, I didn’t know what occupation I would have get in my life. Continue reading
The most of time we walk through our city, the city we know better than any other, we don’t stop ourselves to see the things that surrounded us.
The most of time we walk down the street we run everyday in our daily life we don’t look around and see the things that make these streets truly unique.
As I can imagine, any of us does the same street to reach the work place where we stay the all day. And when we get out the office, or the place we work in, we are too tired or immersed in one’s thoughts to not see the beauties of our city. Continue reading
I’ve decided to write my first post on this blog starting from a quote by Albert Einstein I found it very true. I only changed its last part of the quote using “living” instead of “moving”.
A small change that really makes sense to me. I love quotations in general and I’m making this blog also for offering quotes that, in my opinion, could help people make a better experience of their own life.
At least, quotes are little phrases that have inside a deep meaning of life and they can give us a hand when our inner self really needs it. I think they are a piece of wonderful cake we can taste to feed our soul in specific moments. Continue reading
