Week 35 – I bought a Red Wheeled bicycle

I had thought about buying a bike to cycle around Paris for a while (since early Summer) and had even borrowed my mother’s old bike to fix it and see if I would like using it. However, the bike is old and heavy and even though in the process of fixing it I proudly learned how to change the inner tube of a wheel (it took me 2 hours), I later realized that there would still be too much work to be done on it so I’d rather just buy a new one that I would actually like.

Week 34 – My first race, La Parisienne

Sunday the 10th of September was the day I ran for La Parisienne, a 100% feminine 7km race raising awareness and funds for Breast Cancer. It had been raining the day before but it was a beautiful morning when I woke up for my first race ever. Continue reading “Week 34 – My first race, La Parisienne”

Week 33 – I am now officially a Knitter

More or less at the same time that I adopted cats (and I do not think that the events are unrelated) I developed a passion for knitting, which also perfectly matched the equal passion the kittens showed for wool balls. Continue reading “Week 33 – I am now officially a Knitter”

Week 32 – My first piece of Street Art

All summer I have mostly been going out to the same bar: in theory I like “change” and “new experiences” (hence this blog) but in reality I must be attached to my routines more than I think . Truth is, I like to know what to expect, mostly because I tend to visualize my future and activities long before I am doing them and need to know what to expect. Anyways, after a few evenings out, I forced myself to try new places, and one amazing evening was spent at… Continue reading “Week 32 – My first piece of Street Art”

Week 31 – What would you do if you knew you would not fail? A question from Chris Guillebeau

I feel that most of the 30-Something are looking for a sense in their lives. As if people do not want to just pass by and earning enough money to pursue their hobbies, living in a nice place , going regularly on holidays and having a family was not enough anymore.  Continue reading “Week 31 – What would you do if you knew you would not fail?

Week 30 – Becoming a Foster Family for cats

I have always loved animals but I have always loved traveling and independence too. I always thought that growing up (or getting older and having my own place and a good income) would allow me adopt catS and dogS someday. However, I never found a way to conciliate my will for independence and taking care of another living being, especially since I have no friends or family able to take care of any potential animal while I am away. That was until I learned about Foster Families for animals! Continue reading “Week 30 – Becoming a Foster Family for cats”

Week 29 – “La Sagra della Fojata”, my village festival in Umbria, Italy

One of the smallest villages in Italy is the place I call home. I have moved around a lot and this village, where my father’s brother and sisters have lived all their life is the only constant place I have known all my life. Since I left Italy 17 years ago it has become more than ever the place that connects me to my childhood. Continue reading “Week 29 – “La Sagra della Fojata”, my village festival in Umbria, Italy”
