Rounded Rocks

Gran Canaria is my place of the heart. I have a lot of good memories in this island and it meant a lot of things for me in the past.
First of all I've met (or re-met) my actual boyfriend while I was taking a flight to go there.. It's the place where I've started to surf on my own, where my family is... Gran Canaria is part of me and it will always be.

Help Punta Colorada ! NOW!

I suppose that my readers are people quite interested in the world we are living in. There's a major issue threatening the natural environment.
One of the best preserved beaches of Mexico is about to become a Marina.
In my opinion ANYONE even a little bit interested in our environment should help to avoid that this project could EVER become reality.
At the moment there's a PETITION for protecting the area by declaring it a Natural Reserve to be kept and preserved in its pristine and undeveloped original state.

Thanks Daddy !

In Italy we have some days off next week, a religious holiday called "Il ponte dell'Immacolata". 
This days of vacation allow us to have some rest before the sprint of the Christmas Holidays that usually at school is the busiest time of the year except from the final exams in june.

My dad this year gave me a very special present: 2 flight tickets for a beloved destination... my isla querida Gran Canaria !!

This is my Dad with the love of his life, his Mehari . Taken in Lake Garda, 
he's wearing a Quiksilver tee and Jackerson's trousers.

Soooo it's time to travel again! After mexico I thought that my luggages would have been still a little more but thanks to daddy.. It's time to take them out of the closet again.

Since my sister will be in Miami at that time , (the lucky girl has to sail in the Melges 20 World Championship) will be just me and my boyfriend to leave for the canaries! and a bunch of good friends that are already there.

Can't wait to show you my tanned face again !!

Maria is living the dream ! Update from Oz..

Remember my friend Maria? She moved to Australia not long after our first post ( clic HERE to see it )and these are some pictures to have an idea of how much she is enjoying Oz... We are all jealous :)
"I live just next to the beach and next to a spot called Alexandra Heads. I wake up every morning and have a wave check from my balcony, trying to get a surf every morning before Uni.

Hiding from comfort

 Is not the name of the famous bodyboarding movie, it's the feeling of hiding under a straw hat in a mysterious world of a book, in this case an amazing one.
Leaving what you know behind to be in a parallel universe made by your mind staying at the same time in perfect reality.

Peek-a-boo !

 There are bikinis, trikinis and SURFkinis! I guess all my friends that enjoy riding will be pleased to try on a bikini like this one.. without getting naked at every wave!

Just another day in paradise

Ok, I have the same bikini f the previous post but WHATEVER this blog is not just about fashion and fashion is just not about wearing items just once. We all have our favorites that we'll never drop, and when we travel they pretty much always with us.
I wanted to show you this place, it's called Playa Carrizalillo (Puerto Escondido, MEX) and is amazing believe me. The water is light blue with gold shades, the sand is gold and whatever you have around is green forest. Just that. You get to the beach after a long stairs walk (the way up is pretty rough..) but it definitely is worth the fatigue!!

Stretch out your hands to the sky..

This amazing statue is actually a very sad one, the outstretched hands on the surfy beach commemorate the surfers who drowned here.

Mexican Sunset

 Whatching the sunset from the roof terrace of our hotel (Hotel Aqua Luna) here is just amazing...

From airport to airport..and yes another airport!

Three days of travelling are over! We spent the first night in Milan airport, then we got to Paris and after the nearly 12 hours flight to Mexico City I was already with a serious cold (thanks to the crazy air conditioning of airports and planes) and feeling dizzy. And it we were just halfway there! So we decided to sleep in a hotel in Mexico City instead of another night on the floor!!

Sleeping one night in a real bed and having the chance of showering was like being brand new!! We have spent the night in the beautiful hotel Camino Real inside the terminal 1 of Mexico City Airport... Nice and very comfortable not just for the position.. but maybe we saw it so comfortable because of the 48 hours without a real bed!
The morning after we took the last plane, directed to Puerto Escondido.
After three days we finally landed in this amazing place full of palms, it was so hot when we landed that we could even imagine it! ITS SUMMER AGAIN!!
I'm wearing a Quiksilver Women tank top (F/W 11), Abercrombie & Fitch super skinny jeans, DC flip flops and a Stella Forrest scarf.
Bag: Quiksilver Women (F/W 11) Trolley: Quiksilver

Summer is over...this means just ONE thing...

is time to LEAVE ! 
Colder winds are blowing and it didnt stop raining for the last 24 hours.. is time to go somewhere hotter.. on the opposite side of the world maybe, where the summer never ends and we can still enjoy amazing sunsets and warm water..

I'm leaving for Mexico tomorrow, it's a super long trip.. I have to go to Milan first and in the nightime the plane will take us to Paris, then another plane to Mexico City that is nearly an 12 hours flight ! okay at this point we are just HALFWAY there! One night in Mexico City airport and the day after we'll finally be in our destination: Puerto Escondido.

My boyfriend says that I'm a good secretary, so this is my secretary-skill : 
I'm sorry its written in italian but is actually funny! My check list for the trip: things to bring! I had to reduce the clothes quantity to the minimum and thats the reasong of all the checked things.. yellow is maybe, blue is handluggage!

The sun shines on diamonds..

My journey to Mexico starts from very far away. Daddy's car is full of my luggages of the whole summer that I spent in Lake Garda, Italy.. I'm ready for the first part of the trip: GOING HOME.

This car is my Dad's pride and joy. Is really super fun and even comfortable..and if starts raining? no problem! there are holes in the floor to let the water slip away ;) It has a feeling of sahara and sand in it..

Under the stars

 The feeling of the ocean has something very attractive to me... but in this pictures I couldnt be farer from it... I'm in Trentino!! in Lake Garda, is in the middle of the mountains but this place has "something" that makes it a little paradise on earth.

It's time to think about travels again..

In my mind an old James Taylor's song sings..."Oh, down in Mexico, I never really been so I don't really know, Oh, Mexico, I guess I'll have to go..."
In this pictures we were in Gran Canaria, I was wearing a Dorothy Perkins floral dress, Roxy sweatshirt and Vans shoes.

Turquoise is a feeling.

On sunday I went to see the Red Bull Cliff Diving in Malcesine (Italy), 13 very brave men dived from a 27 metres platform on the top of the Scaliger Castle of Malcesine, Lake Garda.

Chasing Ducks

 This place is in my hometown : Mantova. Is a very little city surrounded by even more little lakes.. it almost seems a town of the fairytales...

Love is something very complicated...

is twisted as a braid, but at the same time as a braid is constantly united and firm.

This was a bracelet I once had but that now is on my boyfriend's wrist...
