  1. They Threw Stones Over My Head …

    01 Jul 2021
    I GOT HIT WITH A STONE! Napoli was my most foreign cultural experience thus frar. No other city has shocked me the way this place did. Congested, sticky, dirty, poor - those are the first adjectives that pop into my head when I think of it. The number of inhabitants…

  2. Tears Dry On Their Own

    18 Jun 2021
    TEARS DRY ON THEIR OWN Over the past month, I bonded with my sister and was really surprised to see how sad I was to get back on the bike. The flat area of Ferrara quickly turned into hilly Bologna, and I was challenged both physically and mentally. I thought…

  3. Do I Really Wanna Leave?

    03 Jun 2021
    Hitting the road TOMORROW! Is going to the South of Italy in the midst of summer heat the best idea? Well, if this sounds a bit mad to you, welcome to my World. My logic is pretty solid tho- I won’t know (if it’s gon’ kill me :D ) until…

  4. Getting Ready to Leave

    28 May 2021
    All Things Come To An End For the past 10 months, I have been restlessly photographing, journaling, and of course, pursuing personal projects, the biggest one being the Book.  In the past 5 weeks, I have been putting all of my time and effort into polishing the sample chapters…

  5. I Nearly Died

    18 May 2021
    NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE There is a reason why I travel alone. Generally, I find it extremely difficult to find someone who vibes the same way I do but when my sister offered me a little getaway, I didn’t hesitate because I craved to spend some quality time with her. And so…

  6. Is This The End?

    28 Apr 2021
    In the past weeks, blogging became secondary to me. There was simply too much going on and I wanted to make sure I am in the moment, truly seeing, exploring, and feeling all of the spaces that I was in. So where have I been in the past few weeks?…

  7. France Goes Into Lockdown

    08 Apr 2021
    WE MEET AGAIN As much as I always try to avoid France, for some reason, each and every time I end up staying longer than planned. I took a lovely break in Perpignan, exploring the city with my fav Moroccan hosts, and later hiking through the mountains in search of…

  8. Absolute Infatuation

    29 Mar 2021
    Not wearing my photographer’s badge this week has been weird. Partially, I felt free- after all, I didn’t have the urge to flip out my phone every 5 minutes because that simply was not an option. Moreover, I found myself more connected to myself, Nature, and the experience of Now.…

  9. Time To Say Goodbye…

    19 Mar 2021
    IT’S BEEN AN INTENSE WEEK I have been putting in some serious mileage this week. In a way, I felt like I started to chase after covering as much distance as I could but really- did I have a chance to actually sit in and enjoy the moment? GETTING LOST…

  10. I Crashed The Drone

    12 Mar 2021
    A lot of time I get torn between my urge to document the trip and an attempt to get to my designated destination. I want to get some quality contemplation time, hang out with my hosts, and work on my book but the day has only 24h and something always…
