I’m Sara, class 1985, travel agent for a bit. Born and raised at the foothills of the Small Dolomites, not very far from Venice in Northern Italy.

Geography and “the World” have always been a passion of mine: the first book my mother put in my hand, right after the Disney classics, was an atlas, so I presume this was kind of a destined path for me.

 

Since I was young, I devoted my life to the cult of the three T (territory, travel, tourism) by studying and researching these fields of interest. Now I’m trying to put into use what I learned “on the field” in an era of great challenges for the sector of tourism (the advent of the Internet surely one of the biggest).

What you will find in here

Having worked in the sector for a period as a travel agent, I’ve soon learned that the figure of the travel consultant has to be a sort of “human encyclopedia” (well, sort of!), able to jump from one niche to another and with a widespread knowledge concerning various topics.

As a consequence I’ll try to apply this ‘rule’ even over here even if the central theme of this blog will be one: Italy. But don’t be fooled by the classic image of Italy made of sunny beaches, lemon trees and olive groves, the Belpaese is much more diverse and complicated than that and I’m here to help you to discover it in all of its aspects: starting from the touristic spots – that consist of classic routes and off the beaten path attractions – to the cultural aspects that involve local people, customs, arts and folkways. After all the local life is what truly makes the difference when exploring a new reality, it’s the soul of a country.

It’s not by change that a topic I feel pretty invested in is the so-called experiential tourism. As they say, “goods are tangible, services are intangible, experiences are memorable”. Experiences are those things that make a holiday unforgettable and that also allow us to grow as individuals and human beings. I will share with you some experiential itineraries that will make the difference to your holiday in Italy!

I think the perspective of a native like me will be of great help for any tourist or Italophile who lives abroad 😉

Welcome in my blog 🙂

  2. I love your introduction.
    We shall have to stay in touch.
    Just spent two weeks in and around Pordenone, from the collini dei Prosecco to VV, Vitorio Veneto,of course, a beloved city, and then almost as far east as Marco Polo, yes, Friuli, that strange land, where they may eat like us, drink like us and even look like us, but as soon as they open thier mouths, strange sounds emanate sounding like a Frenchman being put to the rack.
