I like travelling – what I really like is to learn (also through museums), to see nice architecture, getting to know the history of a country, learn languages, interact with people… I decided to post just a few old pictures, to remember them It was amazing to see again old photos, when I was thinner To see that I wasn’t so “colorful” before – my clothes at the time are so… practical (I still like so), but not very colorful Or maybe the colors today are more vivid because of the digital technology. I’m sorry for the photos quality – they were “paper photos”
Disclaimer: By no means this page is about “bragging”, before someone thinks so. There’s nothing to brag about, in my opinion – everybody travels. It’s for me to have a place to see my pictures and remember good moments! I confess it’s more because I’m lazy. I have 3 computers and my digital pictures of more recent trips are on the other two, and I don’t want to look for them now!
I went to Austria many times (I even spent one new year’s eve there), Salzburg included, Vienna, Graz, Kindberg, Semmering and other cities, too. And France, fantastic! I spent some new year’s eves in Paris, very cool. And I went to, among others (difficult to remember all, now), Saint-Malo sometimes (I love it), Alençon, Le Merleraut, Aigue, Honfleur, Rouen, Caen, Le Havre, Cherbourg, Dol-de-Bretagne, Rennes, Mount-Saint Michel, Nice, Cannes, Bordeaux, Chambery, Poitiers (where part of my family is from), Strassbourg, Riquewihr, Eggisheim, Colmar (some times), Le Mans, Tours, Osseja, Reims and so many more cities. I have a Master’s in French Cultural Affairs – Literature, Philosophy and History, so it shows how much I love the country!
Italy – another case of love and part of my family. I love Italy! I went to many cities as well – Treviso, Venice twice, Rome, Brindisi (so cute!), Milan, Bergamo, Pisa, Firenze, Verona, Lucca and many other cities, and I am always longing to go again and again!
Because I normally rent a car, I went to many more cities in Czech Republic, Argentina and Uruguay (Montevideo, of course, the capital). But as I said, I chose for the page the “best” pictures One thing I love is to travel alone. I have gone to many places alone, and you can do what you want – see what you want, sleep when you want, buy what you want
To Switzerland I went a dozen of times too, Zurich being the place I most visited. In Scotland I went to the fantastic Edinburgh, Perth and Inverness – and close to it, I saw the Loch Ness. It’s really amazing!
To the Netherlands I went a dozen of times, too, mainly to Amsterdam, I love it! And Utrecht, Aalsmeer, Zwolle, Nijkerk, Afsluitdijk, Gouda, Venlo, Maastricht, Eindhoven, Rotterdam and others. Two of my best friends live there and I love to visit them!
Germany is a chapter that would need two pages I lived and studied there, for my Masters and to improve my German language skills. So in many years I went to many places, many weddings and got my Master’s in British Social Affairs – Politics and Economy for Education History and Literature. I know, the name is long, it included lots of aspects. I used to study, in the final year, around 16 hours a day, so demanding it was. I went to every state of Germany and even to some islands. These are not all the cities, towns and free states I have gone in Germany, but the ones I remembered
