#LondonDiary (2017): 4

Saturday in the city is always the best moment. Tourists from all over the world come and bring joy and life to the busy streets of London. In Notting Hill, on Portobello Road, they do the street market, Camden Town shines in all its splendor, the Borough Market fills up with every kind of food….

Run Baby Run: Eye of the Tiger

Rising up, back on the street Did my time, took my chances Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet Just a man and his will to survive So many times it happens too fast You trade your passion for glory Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past You must fight…

The Time Is NOW

There is no maybe, no later eventually. Live now, live to the fullest, say what you mean, share your point, don’t be afraid, try, enjoy, love, kiss, leave, come back, never return, buy a ticket and go adventure, have fun, wake up at sunrise, go to bed at sunrise, party from sunset till sunrise, work,…

Training – My Butt Hurts

I’m not into weight training. Not even into strength training. I’m more into running 35k for no reason and then not running for a month. I’m more into going to the gym once and then wait a week to go back. You know what they say, go hard or go home. This summer I said I…

The Perks of Drinking Way Less Coffee

After the big day (graduation) I forced myself to drink way less coffee, a couple of espressos per day instead of five, six. Apart from the fact I am sleeping WAY better, due also to the fact I do not have that huge graduation stress, I also feel more relaxed, calm, happy.  Therefore I dedicate…

The List: What To Do When It’s HOT

Nope, I’m not talking about the guy I always meet when running down the trails who screams me “hello, great ass!”. I’m not even talking about hot chocolate nor about hot coffee. It’s the weather my problem. Because for how much I love summer, I cannot stand a temperature that goes about 20°C (18°C if…

Food: New Batter at #LaLanterna

As yesterday there was this food event, I guess a review is pretty much necessary. If you have been reading my blog for quite a while, you would have noticed for sure how big fan I am of the pizzeria La Lanterna. I’m sorry for the others, but there is no competition. Yesterday the Spampatti family organized…

Summer Clean

Yesterday morning I went shopping in Bergamo because something new was pretty much necessary. I haven’t been shopping for months (take off that look, I had a lot to do and well my money had been saved up for something bigger). Anyway, once the shopping was over and we drove back home, I tried to…

Christo and the Floating Pier

About ten days ago, I went at to Sulzano, a lovely place which would still be unknown to me (and to the rest of the world) if it wasn’t for Christo… Nope, not the bible one, but Jeanne Claude Christo. He created this orange floating pier which allows you to walk straight to Mont’Isola without…

July: Hello Summer!

*Okay I’m terribly sorry for having missed the deadline once more but there has been a family emergency and when I finally found a wifi it was already 7pm*. Can you feel the heat while running? Can you feel the burn? Can you feel the sun on your skin while lying down breathless? There’s only…
