Just Take Me Away
My daily remainder
of all the unique memories I have been building travelling the world
and of the amazing people I have been meeting
along the way.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I hope mine will be a boost for the future dreamers and travelers to take off!Hey there! I am Giusy, an italian native but a world citizen. I am a dreamer with the head in the clouds so this blog is m
I grew up looking at the postcards sent home from our friends and relatives on vacations. Those pictures got the mind of that little girl wandering through places so far away. I remember I was used to say “One day, I will take off and see these places by my own eyes”. Moment when my mum was used to point out “Really? With what money?” Bam – back to the reality!
That idea of travelling, though, was hidden in a little corner of my mind, waiting for the right moment to pop up.
I remember being at my high-school finals and the examiner asking me “Miss, what would you like to study at college?”
I had basically spent my entire life at school and I’d never really had time to think about my personal interests or passions.
I was like – damn I gotta find an answer quick – so I just said to him – “I’ll take Foreign Languages at college.”
Yeah Giusy, that actually makes sense – I told myself after the plan for my future was finally set.
Apparently my mind was more awere of myself than I was.
It was there it all began.
First thing first, I needed money. I started working. I did any kind of job while I was attending university. I paid on my own my semester abroad in UK. I visited places I didn’t even know exsist. I met people with my same passions.
I was not the only one willing to discover the world.
I got more and more confident and I understood I would not have been able to stop myself from catching the next flight. So, I went back to Italy, I completed my studies and a few months after my Bachelor’s I left. I had just one big dream – going to the States.
