For some people travelling means lying in a horizontal position and absorbing ultra violet radiation, taking off far away and putting a virtual flag without even coming into contact with the location.
For me traveling is exactly the opposite: It is something that makes me feel completely alive, a chance to explore new cultures and to open my mind, where I cannot waste even a second to understand better the essence of the place I am visiting.
I’m Valeria, an archi-photographer fueled by travels.
On this Travel Blog, (mainly in italian), I promote culturally aware and sustainable travels, with a focus on Northern Europe.
I was born in Rome, surrounded by art, but “the North” has captured my soul: Germany and England hosted me for a while, and Iceland took my heart forever.
I am an enthusiastic, independent, and aware traveler; I always explore on a budget, making the most out of my travel destinations.

“A camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera”
In the ancient times, going “Beyond the Pillars of Hercules” meant to overcome the gateway to the unknown: thirst for knowledge is definitely my attitude.
While I am travelling, my way to go “Beyond the Pillars” is seeking unconventional and authentic places or exploring the well-known through new eyes.
This is NOT a “been there, seen that, got the T-shirt” Travel Blog!
