London, July 2013.

"When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life" 

It’s been almost fortnigh I came back from the beautiful London.

 I went there on a study holiday for two weeks. I’ve never had the opportunity to travel a lot; this was only the second time I went abroad.

 If I stop to think about it, it seems to me only yesterday (oh my gosh I’m talking like my grandmother) I worried about a looot of things about this trip to London

. For example that my suitcase would never arrive at the London airport and it would end up in Timbuctù, instead..

However, the things that worried me the most were the fact of not being able to make friends and not being able to get by.

As I discovered later, there was no reason to think all of that.

 People I knew were so funny and down on earth that I got on well with them. I have to thank them too if I enjoyed this trip so much.

And yeah, I discovered that I was really able to get by; feeling a little indipendent  is a nice feeling.

(But I’m not going to lie: during the first few days I really felt homesick.)

 AND, last but not least, my suitcase arrived!

London is a really stunning city.

 Aside from the wonderful places I got the opportunity to see, what I really loved of London was that you could see a lot of different people, dressed in a different way, maybe with pink or turquoise hair, with lots of piercing or tattoos, and no one turned around and glared at them.

 I know maybe I stayed in London too little time to say it and maybe happens that people turn around and judge, but it’s just what I was able to notice for the short time I was there and I really loved it.

Anyway, I’m going to show you some pictures I took! 🙂

First post!

Hello people of WordPress!

I’m one of the hundreds and hundreds (maybe I should say thousands) of  people who, today, have decided to open a blog.

From the things I’ve just read on the internet, there’s a huge percentage my blog will die in a few months unless I write something interesting, unless my blog’s name and its layout are captivating and unless I follow some instructions such as: “Fifty plus one advice to build a successful Blog!”. Or whatever.

(Okay, I do admit I read something similar to that ‘fifty plus one advice’ thing…)

Anyway! I’m just going to introduce myself a little bit.

My name is Giulia and I’m seventeen years old.

Really big dreamer, New York obsessed (and hopefully a future New Yorker, thank you so much), books and music lover, fashion devoted, aspiring writer.

(My blog will be full of thoughts and pictures about these things.)

Stubborn, kind, touchy, honest, moody, passionate, ambitious.

I adore my family and my friends. Oh and of course: pizza.

I’ve decided to write my blog in English, even if it’s not my first language. It’s not at all because I have the presumption to think I can speak and write English as my mother tongue. It’s just because I really want to practice it more than I can. So, really, feel free to let me know any mistakes I will make. It will be appreciated!

Thanks very much to anyone who has spent a few minutes to read my first post!
