GMT +1 ROME | WHERE TO NEXT?

About

WELCOME TO MY LITTLE CORNER OF THE INTERNET!


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, architect & storyteller, fueled by travels.

On this Travel Photo Blog, (mainly in italian), I promote culturally aware and sustainable travels, with a focus on Northern Europe and world’s hidden gems.
50% Roman, 50% Nordic Elf. I was born in Rome, surrounded by art, but the North has captured my soul: Germany and England hosted me for a while, Iceland & Lapland took my heart forever.
I am an independent traveler and I always explore on a budget, making the most out of my travel destinations.

WHY “BEYOND THE PILLARS OF HERCULES”?


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!
