Weekend in Hamburg

IMG_0804

Hey guys!

I hope you are all good 🙂

Today I wanna share with you about my short trip to Hamburg I made last weekend.

I mentioned that me and my boyfriend were planning to go to Hamburg. The idea was to go on the first weekend of June, but we got so excited with the idea that we decided to anticipate the trip, so we went last Saturday. \o/

Since Hamburg is only 2 hours away from Münster, we decided to make it a short trip, we left on Saturday at 7am and came back on Sunday at 4pm.

Hotel

I booked our hotel on booking.com and I found the IBIS Budget hotel which is very well located, close to the train station and to the center as well, we did everything walking, so it was very convenient to us.

The price for one night was good as well, we paid 77 euros for one night (No breakfast included, you can pay 7.50 and have breakfast there, but we didn’t think it was necessary for us).

The check in is at 2pm, but since we arrived at 10am in Hamburg, we decided to go to the hotel to see if we could leave our bags in there in a locker or something. The staff were so nice that they allowed us to check in earlier – probably because the hotel wasn’t full and our room was ready, but still, very nice, 5 points to IBIS! 😂

Another nice thing to mention is that when I made the reservation, I sent them a message asking for a room in the top floor and they attended my request, which I also found very thoughtful of them 🙂

The room itself is very small – as you can see in the picture, but very clean and comfortable, perfect for a one night stay and for couples. I definitely recommend IBIS Budget if you go to Hamburg!

The City + Restaurants and Bars

For this trip, we didn’t search much on what to do there. I saw one picture on instagram – the Speicherstadt, and that was basically what motivated us to go there. We are also not big fans of museums or exhibitions, we like to walk (a lot!) and go where catch our eyes, and that’s exactly what we did.

The place who made me want to go to Hamburg

We started our walk by going to Speicherstadt which is the largest warehouse district in the world – where the buildings stand on timber-pile foundations, oak logs, in this particular case.

The architecture is unbelievable and so beautiful, we made sure to take our time in there to check everything and of course, take a lot of pictures!

There are some museums located in this area as well, but as I said, it was not our goal to visit museums this time, but you can check them here

IMG_0885IMG_0888IMG_0943IMG_0824

After that, we started walking to the center and it was very crazy because during our walk, we didn’t see a single soul in the streets, we don’t know if it was because of the virus or any other particular reason. But as soon as we got into the center, we found out where everyone was! lol

The center of Hamburg is very nice, full of stores (as it should be) and with 3 or so churches around it as well. They were very pretty on the outside, but pretty basic on the inside, since it’s free, it’s still worth to check 🙂

It’s worth to mention that we were impressed by the architecture of the city, every building was so beautiful and they all matched each other, it’s crazy.

After walking for hours, we decided we deserved some drinks and to eat something – not much since we wanted to save ourselves for a proper and nice dinner #travelingionabudget lol

We went to Sausalitos which is a Mexican chain restaurant in Germany, and we had some drinks and fries. As usual, we sat next to an amazing building and made sure to take some pictures.

We decided to go back to the hotel, rest a bit and prepare ourselves to go out again at night for dinner and drinks.

For dinner our main plan was to go to ALEX restaurant, it has a view to the Alster Fountains – a very big lake that is surrounded by restaurants. We called to make reservations but they were completely full, however we decided to go there anyway and try our luck.

When we got there, there was a huge line just to put your name on the waiting list, so we gave up at the same second! We decided to walk around the place and we found a boat restaurant called Alsterlagune

The restaurant was not very full and the view was amazing. They serve seafood, meat and pasta. We chose to order a steak and omg! we were not disappointed! The food was very well served and the meat was delicious! Being a Brazilian and my boyfriend Argentinian, we are very picky when it comes to good meat, we have been struggling to find a good steak for a reasonable price for a while now, so we were not expecting much from this place, but we were very surprised on how good this steak was!

IMG_4193

The price was very ok as well, with drinks plus our plates, we paid around 30 euros each. Totally worth it and we were full forever lol

After that, we decided to have a drink at Reeperbahn – which is a street and entertainment district in Hamburg’s. Is one of the two centers of Hamburg’s nightlife and also the city’s major red-light district. 

It was a 40 min walk from the lake until there, but we were so full that the walk helped us to get back on track! The night was very agitated and we went to Spielbudenplatz – which is a place with many bars and street food in an open area, to have drinks.

IMG_1627

After that, we were destroyed and came back to the hotel.

On the next day we only had a few hours before our train to depart. We did the check-out in the hotel and decided to go check the Elbphilharmonie concert hall building, which is so cool! The building is one of the largest and acoustically most advanced concert halls in the world.

After that we decided we needed to have a hamburger in Hamburg, just because! lol I googled some places and found Otto’s burger. We made our way there and we were not disappointed!

I ordered one of their special burgers of the day, which was a burger with gorgonzola cheese, aioli sauce and caramelized onions (it was heaven!) and Juan ordered the Chuck Norris burger.

This was by far one of the best burgers I ever had! 10/10! The place was also vey cute and the service was great as well. In total we spent 40 euros with the burgers and drinks.

After that we made our way to the train station and came back home!

And that was our trip to Hamburg! Very short but perfect for the weekend, I loved it and recommend to everyone 🙂 The architecture was something I wasn’t expecting to be so amazing and I was very happy with the positive surprise.

I hope you liked it and I would also like to mention that all these amazing pictures were taken by Juan, so if you like, please make sure to follow him on instagram for more great pictures 🙂

We talk soon!

Series to Watch on Netflix

Hey guys!

I hope you are all great 🙂

Today I wanna share with you guys some series I’ve watched on Netflix and really liked. I love suspense/thriller series, so this post will be based on these type of genre.

I also love documentaries, but I decided to make a separate post for that, so it doesn’t get mixed.

Another thing you should know is that I don’t have the patience for long series or series that ends without an explanation, demanding a second season. If the show is from Netflix is even worst, because you will usually finish watching the show in one week (or less lol), and the second season usually comes up after 2 years. By then, I will have forgotten everything about the story and the chances of me watching it are zero.

So the series below are short, with a proper end and perfect to binge-watch on the weekend!

  • Quicksand

Quicksand is a Swedish show (btw, I’m loving that Netflix is producing more series from different countries) based on a book by the same name.

“In the aftermatch of a school shooting, 18 year-old Maja Norberg is taken into police custody and told she’s being charged with murder”

It’s a very short show with only 6 episodes of 40-50min each. It really gets your attention and makes you want to know what will happen with Maja. Although the show is centered in teenagers, it has the right amount of suspense that doesn’t let it be too teen or even too silly to watch.

  • Unbelievable

Unbelievable is a US show based on true events about a series of rapes in Washington State and Colorado.

“Unbelievable follows on Marie, a teenager who was charged with lying about having been raped, and the two detectives who followed a twisting path to arrive at the truth.”

The show has 8 episodes of 40-50min each. It’s very evolving, the fact that is based on true events, makes everything more interesting, and revolting as well. The series also shows a bit of Marie’s past to make you understand why people do not believe in her.

 

  • The Stranger

The stranger is a British show and very new – it was released in Jan/2020.

Adam Price is a happily married father of two whose life is turned upside-down after a stranger tells him a secret about his wife. The revelation catapults him into a world of danger.

Is the type of show that I was sure that it would need a second season to unfold everything. For my happy surprise, the main questions are answered in the 8 episodes, yet leaving some cues for a second season, if ends up happening.

  • The Sinner

The sinner is quite famous and should definitely be in this list! Starring Jessica Biel, who is also one of the producers of the show, the drama starts when Cora, a young mother, stabs a man to death with no apparent motive and without later being able to remember committing the crime.  

It’s very intriguing and it makes you wanna watch one episode after the other! The sinner has 2 seasons, but one season is not related to the other one, since it tells two different stories having only the detective as a permanent character.

The second season is also very good and worth to be watched 🙂

 

That’s it for now! I think that those series are quite good and makes you do not leave your couch until you finish!

I hope you liked and if you watch any of those series, please let me know, I would love to hear your thoughts!

Bye bye 😘

 

Exploring my Own City

20200523_143215

Hey guys ✨

Today I wanna share with you the amazing Saturday I had discovering a new place in my own city!

The initial plan was to take the train (love taking trains! And since the lockdown, I wasn’t able to go anywhere) to go to a nearby city called Haltern am see. It’s a 20 minute train ride from my city and it has a little beach in there, so my boyfriend and I thought it would be the perfect mini getaway.

When we arrived at the train station, we found out that for a round trip in a 20 minute ride to our destination, it would cost us 24.00€! It’s not extremely expensive, but we think is not worth it for such a close destination and that we could go to a bigger city for the same price. So we decided to abort the plan 😦

Our disappointment lasted only a few minutes since we started to check the map and first we thought about going to the Zoo (which was also vetoed due price as well lol) and then we decided to just walk in the lake we have here in Münster – the Aasee. The lake is quite famous and we always go there, but this time we decided to go beyond our usual place and explore a bit better.

For our surprise, we had the best time discovering this part of our own city. We found out a mini forest which is something we love so much and have been looking for a while now.

Happy explorers!

I have been living here for two years and to still find new places to go is always amazing 🙂

We spent the mid morning/early afternoon walking and after we were done, we found a bar and decided to stop for a drink and to eat something.

I must say that it was not the best pizza of all times, but the view + our hunger, made it great!

After that we made our way back home happy that our train ride didn’t work out!

I’m now starting to plan our first trip since the lockdown! I’m thinking about Hamburg, which is very close by and with lots of nice things to do. So I will definitely come back to tell you about that too 😀

That’s it 🙂 a very short post to just show a bit of my weekend. Ah, if you liked the nature pictures, you should check my bf’s instagram @pimbaholic and check out more!

Happy Sunday everyone ✨

Finding a house in Germany

house hunting

Hello!

Today I would like to share with you some tips for those who want to find a place to live in Germany or just have the curiosity to know how the process works in here.

I need to start by saying that I will be telling my experience in finding a place in the city I live, Münster, but the websites, tips and process applies to the whole Germany.

And before we really get started, another thing I have to point: IT’S👏🏼 NOT👏🏼 EASY!👏🏼 – I live in an university city and it can take you several months to find the right house due the high demand.

Where to Start?

There are a few ways to find a flat/room/house around Germany. The first one – and probably the best/most effective one is, through people. There’s always someone who knows someone that is offering a place. So as soon you get here, let people know you are searching for a place!

Besides that, here are the main websites where you can take a look and start your search:

Yes, eBay! When you live in Germany, eBay will be your best friend! You can find everything, second hand furniture, free furniture (this deserves a whole new post, I need to tell you how I furnished 90% of my house on eBay!), clothes and flats!

This is how it looks like 🙂

You can first register (pink highlighted square on the right) and then click on Immobilien – the second pink square on the left, and start looking for what you want! You can select a lot of filters to find the type of place you want.

Unfortunately this eBay doesn’t have the English version available :/ What I do is to open the site in Chrome, then activate the translation to English and voilà!

I must say that this is not the most popular website to find houses, but it was the one I found mine (I will share my experience at the end) so it’s the reason why I included here.

WG is one of the best ones when you wanna find a place, specially if you are looking to rent a room in a shared flat/house.

They also have the option to switch languages to English and Spanish – just scroll all the way down on the website and you will see the option to change languages, which makes things a bit easier for us 🙂

As you can see from the image, is kind of the same thing as eBay, but here you can choose to find a flat-share, 1 room flat, flats or houses.

I like this website because it’s very easy to navigate and people really put an effort when advertising their places. They will tell a little bit about themselves and also tell what they expect from you as a flatmate or as a tenant.

This one is very similar to WG-Gesucht, but you won’t have the option to change the website to English.

Just an extra info: WG-Gesucht and WG-Suche are mainly focused on shared flats. Of course that you can still find flats and houses, but that’s their main focus 🙂

This one is a very broad website to find places, you can find places from flat until nursery homes! 

Writing your Profile

Once you know where to find a place, you need to have a good profile. Make sure to have as complete as possible, with pictures, your e-mail, phone number and the most important: a nice letter! 

Present yourself, inform where you are from, you age, the languages you speak, your hobbies, what brings you to Germany, for how long you are here for, what you like to do in your free time, if you are a smoker or not and if you have pets (very important info in here, since some places don’t accept smokers and/or pets). 

After that, read carefully people’s ads, since in some of them they will ask you to inform something extra that you might not have it in your standard letter. Is also nice to make each application personalized, insert the person’s name and something else you found nice about the room/flat that got you interested in applying for the place. 

Visiting a Room/Flat

After you apply for a room/flat, the landlord/room owner will schedule a day so you can visit the place. Most of the times they will inform the same day/time for a certain amount of people who also applied for the place, so don’t be scared if you get there and you see 4/5 people checking the place as well – as I said, is not easy and the competition is high!

Make sure to check everything and ask all the questions you have! (I can make a separate post just for the most common questions when renting a place). This is the place you will live, so make sure you know everything about it!

If you are visiting a room, make sure to talk to the flatmates as well, see if you like them and if your interests are aligned with theirs – it’s very important to have flatmates that you get along with, makes the whole flat sharing experience better, or less stressful hahaha

Documents for Application

After checking the place, you will apply for it. The required documents will depend a lot from place to place. But from my experience and the people I know, they will ask you for a copy of personal documents, an income proof, the SCHUFA (SCHUFA is a German private credit proof that you can request in your bank – it costs around 30.00€) and sometimes they will ask you to have a house insurance as well. 

The documents can variate from case to case, but those above are the most common ones. 

After this, they will analyze your profile and your documents and will give you an answer if you got it or not 🙂

My Experience

I’ve been living in Germany for two years and lived in two different houses. My first house was a rented room in a shared flat with a german girl. A person in the company I work was leaving the room and I was informed that it was available. I lived with this girl for one year until we both decided to leave the apartment and move to another place – she found a place closer to her work and since she was moving out, I decided to look for a place for myself instead of finding a new flatmate. 

The story of my second flat is an exception, because things happened very fast and the place is a rare find. 

I found my flat on eBay Kleinanzeigen. I sent a message to the landlord and the visit was on the following week. When I got there to visit the flat – I kid you not – there were at least 10 people checking the place as well. The flat is very well located and with a good price for the location/size. 

Everyone was speaking german and I was the only non-german speaker. My boyfriend who went with me told me, “Lari, there’s no way that you will get this place, forget about it”. OH WELL, I sent my application and on the following week I was signing the contract! lol this is really an exception because usually it doesn’t happen this fast and landlords usually prefers people that can speak in German for communication purposes. 

BE AWARE OF SCAMS!

Before I finish this post I must warn you about scams. They exist and very much common in those websites. 

If the flat is very nice, perfect size, fully furnished, low rent – be suspicious! They will usually ask you to make a deposit into another person of your trust in western union or any other transaction website. They will also claim that they are not in town, therefore they can’t show you the flat and they will be so very very nice with you. So be aware of that and don’t fall for this, if you’re in doubt, start asking more information to the person you are talking to, like their phone number, a contact of the previous tenant… I’m pretty sure they will stop replying to you 🙂 

I guess that’s it! I hope I was able to cover most of the process of finding a house here in Germany.

Please let me know if there’s anything else you would like to know! In the future I can make a post about what to ask in an interview to your landlord, and another one on finding cheap/second-hand furniture – which I love doing it! 🙂

I hope you liked, tschüss!

Guess who’s back?

It’s been so long since my last post (3 years, to be more precise)! To maintain this domain, I pay an yearly subscription to WordPress, and every May I receive an e-mail informing that I will be charged for the domain.

This year I got curious and started checking my blog again and it gave me a feeling of happiness that was very weird. I got an urge to do something with this blog and to write about everything and nothing at the same time lol

I can admit that consistency here is not my best quality. But every time I write, or come back here and see everything, makes me really happy so I decided to once again give it another try.

With no pressure or commitment, I will write again. To talk about what has been happening with me and share tips with whoever is interested 🙂

A lot happened since my last post and slowly I will share a bit of what happened since 2017. But for now, I would like to say that I left Italy 2 years ago – in 2018, and since then I’ve been living in Münster, Germany! It has been a very crazy experience and I can’t wait to share the most I can here 🙂

I know that these days with Instagram, Twitter and Youtube, blogs lost the majority of their readers and no one has time or desire to stop their lives and read a blog, even if it’s just for 5 minutes. – A little thought here: it’s crazy how we’ve become so lazy with internet, no? the less to read, the better. Information needs to come fast, easy and with not much effort, please. Sometimes we don’t even have the patience for more than 5 Instagram’s stories. Crazy times.

But for those who are interested, I will be sharing my thoughts, a part of my life, some tips regarding living in Germany, traveling around Europe and whatever more that comes to my mind!

This time I will write in English. The majority of the people around me these days has either English as their main language or is the only common language with me. And it will also be a good practice for me as well 🙂 So yes, grammar errors will come! Please feel free to correct me 🙂

I’m feeling quite rusty, I must say! But I will keep this blog updated and try to make the best out of this 🙂

See you soon!

 

O que é Couchsurfing?

Oie, como vocês estão?

Hoje eu vim com um post mais informativo, porque ninguém merece só ficar lendo sobre minha vida né? hahaha

Já desabafei tudo que eu tinha pra desabafar, agora vamos pra o que importa: trazer informações úteis pra vocês!

Vim contar sobre um site que me ajudou muito nas minhas viagens pelos EUA, o Couchsurfing. Couchsurfing nada mais é do que um site onde você acha pessoas ao redor do mundo que oferecem suas casas pra viajantes se hospedarem de graça! Parece bizarro e um convite pra um filme de terror né? Mas não é gente, ainda existe pessoas boas nesse mundo que querem ser gentis, e querem vivenciar uma troca de cultura.

Funciona assim, primeiro você faz o cadastro no site. Depois, escolhe a cidade pra onde deseja ir, coloca os dias em que estará na cidade e com quantas pessoas você vai viajar. Aí, o site de mostra uma lista de hosts que estão disponíveis pra te hospedar nos determinados dias. Você manda uma mensagem pro host contando um pouco sobre você e seus companheiros de viagem, e que você adoraria que ele hospedasse vocês. Combinam os detalhes e voilà!

Ah, não espere um super quarto de hotel, aliás, não espere nem que você tenha um quarto. É qualquer canto pra dormir mesmo! Sofá, colchão, casa do cachorro hahaha o intuito do Couchsurfing é justamente a troca de cultura, você conhecer alguém local de um lugar que esta visitando, e seu host conhecer um pouco de onde você vem. Além ter a oportunidade de fazer uma viagem super legal com um custo bem baixo.

DICAS!

• Sempre optar pelo host com mais reviews e que tenha o perfil verificado!

• O site tem uma proposta incrível, mas infelizmente existem pessoas no mundo mal intencionadas. Quanto mais reviews e fotos a pessoa tiver, melhor! Tente extrair o máximo de informação que você conseguir da pessoa pra não cair numa furada!

• Tenha um perfil completo! Coloque fotos e preencha seu perfil com o máximo de dados que você conseguir. Isso também ajuda você a ter uma reputação legal no site, e com isso, ser aceita mais facilmente.

• O mais legal do Couchsurfing é que é de graça! Mas gentileza gera gentileza né?! Não custa nada tirar uma noite da sua viagem e preparar uma janta pro seu host, tomar uma breja, levar pra um bar ou fazer qualquer coisa que esteja ao seu alcance pra demonstrar seu agradecimento.
Eu e a Daff sempre fazíamos strogonoff nas casas em que ficávamos. Era um ótimo jeito de agradecer pela hospedagem e uma ótima troca de cultura! E cá entre nós, quem não ama um strogonoff? Os gringos piravam!

• Quer melhor forma de conhecer um lugar do que pelos olhos de quem mora lá? Converse com seu host, peça dicas de onde ir, onde comer, como ir, quando ir… Tente extrair o máximo de informação sobre a cidade que você conseguir, com certeza sua viagem será mais especial e única.

• Fez Couchsurfing e gostou? gostou do seu host? recomendaria? Faz um review pro cara! Comente sobre sua experiência na pagina dele, é bem importante! Ajuda ele a ter uma reputação melhor no site e com isso, outros viajantes podem ter a mesma experiência legal que você teve =)

Minha experiencia

A primeira vez que eu e a Daff fizemos couchsurfing foi meio que no desespero hahaha Estávamos em uma cidade que se chama San Luis Obispo, e nossa intenção era de só passar o dia na cidade e voltar pra San Francisco a noite. Mas a cidade tinha bastante coisa legal pra se ver e acabou ficando tarde pra gente voltar. Como éramos AuPair e hotel não era uma opção, a gente já tava conformada com o fato de que iríamos dormir no carro (que não seria a primeira vez! se tem uma coisa que a gente fez quando éramos AuPair, era dormir no carro! hahaha Que época boa meu Deus). De ultima hora a Daff achou o couchsurfing e encontramos um cara bem legal pra hospedar a gente. O cara foi demais, cedeu a cama dele pra gente dormir e ele foi dormir no sofá. Confesso que eu fiquei meio apreensiva, acordei varias vezes durante a noite achando que o cara ia matar a gente hahahaha. Claro que deu tudo certo.

Depois, usamos couchsurfing quando fomos pro Hawaii e Chicago. No Hawaii usamos 3 vezes pois ficamos em Oahu, depois fomos pra Kauai e depois voltamos pra Oahu. Todos os nossos hosts foram incríveis! Conto mais sobre uma das melhores viagens da minha vida num outro post =)
Em Chicago também usamos e nosso host foi demais também, ele nos indicou vários lugares legais pra irmos, e ainda nos levou pra comer pizza no lugar preferido dele, e brunch num restaurante incrível!

Com certeza minhas viagens tiveram um toque muito mais local pois eu usei o Couchsurfing. Fora a economia né?

montagem post sem fundo

Nós e nossos hosts incríveis!

É isso gente, eu amo Couchsurfing, com certeza o site fez minhas viagens serem possíveis, pois é uma economia bem da boa. E eu espero um dia poder hospedar viajantes na minha casa também, pra tentar retribuir um pouco das experiências incríveis que eu tive graças ao site =)

Espero que tenham gostado, beijos!

Ciao!

Oláá!

Como vocês estão? Vim desabafar um pouco sobre minha vida desde que eu cheguei aqui! =)

Bom, como eu disse no último post, eu vim pra Itália meio que na loucura, minha prima me chamou pra vir morar com ela e eu não pensei duas vezes, comprei a passagem em uma semana, e depois de um mês estava aqui, em Torino, uma cidade que fica a 2horas de Milão, e é também cidade onde fica o maior time de futebol da Itália, a Juventus (que aqui se pronuncia Iuventus #ficaadica).

Eu estou no processo de tirar minha cidadania Portuguesa, que olha, é bem burocrático e bem caro. Posso até fazer um post sobre isso mais pra frente. Bom, minha cidadania era pra sair logo depois que eu chegasse na Itália, então eu tava super tranquila.
Meus planos eram chegar aqui, pegar uns bicos de babá até minha cidadania sair, fazer um curso de italiano e depois de uns 3 meses já ter casa, emprego, carro, marido, filhos (os dois últimos é uma gostosa brincadeira amigos, pelo amor de Deus). SÓ QUE NÃO NÉ.

E se tem uma coisa que essa Itália ta me ensinando é: PA-CI-ÊN-CIA 
Eu sempre fui – e ainda sou – uma pessoa imediatista, quero tudo pra ontem, e se não acontecer, eu desisto, simplesmente. Como uma boa ariana né queridosss hahaha.
Então desde que eu vim pra cá eu sinto que estou sendo “testada” a todo instante, pra justamente ser uma pessoa mais paciente e ver que as coisas não acontecem da noite pro dia.

Acontece que eu to aqui já faz uns meses e minha cidadania ainda não saiu, meu italiano não tá ótimo ainda, as pessoas aqui não falam inglês, logo eu não consigo muitos trabalhos como babá, e os cursos de italiano só começam em outubro.

Nos primeiros meses, eu me desesperei. Chorava todos os dias, tava sem rumo, sem direção, ficava pensando se eu fiz a escolha certa, se minha prima ia me chutar de casa da noite pro dia, se o dia ia raiar amanhã, se a vida fazia sentido, se o branco era branco mesmo, bem novelona mexicana mesmo, dramaaaatica hahaha

Minha prima e eu conversamos muito. Ela me deu total segurança de que ela tá aqui pra mim pra o que der e vier, que ela sempre soube que não seria em um mês que minha vida iria se resolver e que era pra eu ficar tranquila. A sorte que eu tenho de ter alguém que já passou por tudo que eu to passando, e ainda ser alguém da minha família, não dá pra descrever. Nem sei o que eu tenho que fazer nessa vidinha e nas próximas, pra agradecer tudo que ela tá fazendo por mim, sério mesmo. No meio dessa turbulência que tá a minha vida ultimamente, Deus tá sempre colocando anjos no meu caminho pra eu não enlouquecer de vez, ainda bem.

A questão é que eu não sei ainda se eu tomei a melhor decisão, eu ainda não sei que rumo tomar, ainda não tenho um emprego fixo (to fazendo uns bicos aqui e ali) e eu ainda me desespero de vez em quando. Mas eu to aprendendo a ter paciência, aprendendo a entender e observar o que tá acontecendo. Não é fácil, eu sou agitada, quero tudo pra ontem, quero viajar, quero ir pra Londres, Berlim, Barcelona, afinal, eu to na Europa meu Deus, me deixa aproveitar! Massss, não é assim que tá funcionando e eu to tendo que aprender a lidar com a vida de uma outra forma.
Não é fácil, mas vou contar pra vocês que não tá sendo ruim não, viu?! Tá sendo um desafio me encontrar e de manter a calma no meio desse mar de incertezas que tá essa vidinha de meu Deus, mas eu to aprendendo demais. E quando eu vejo pequenas coisas dando certo, aos poucos, está me fazendo ser mais grata por tudo que tá acontecendo comigo.

Minha relação com a Itália é de amor de ódio, quero fazer um post sobre as minhas primeiras impressões daqui e das diferenças daqui com os EUA e Brasil também.
Mas, resumindo, eu to amando essa nova fase da minha vida, amando as pessoas que eu to conhecendo, e também as pessoas que mesmo de longe, estão me dando uma força descomunal pra tudo. Eu não poderia ser mais grata por todas as reviravoltas que a vida tá dando, tá TOPSTER! hahahahahahha

É isso gente, foi só um desabafo mesmo sobre tudo que tá acontecendo comigo nessa terrinha da pizza. Prometo que os próximos posts serão mais informativos do que pessoais, como tá sendo até agora. Eu só queria colocar pra fora e tentar mostrar que não é só porque eu to fora do Brasil, morando na Itália, que minha vida tá menos difícil, alias, ela tá bem mais complicada do que se eu tivesse ficado na minha zona de conforto nos EUA ou no Brasil. Mas aqui a gente não trabalha com conforto e vidinha fácil, a gente coloca no nível hard e só vai. Eu to muito feliz com a minha nova vida, de verdade mesmo, e com todas as decisões que eu tomei até chegar aqui.

Beijo no coração.
