Basel was for me for a long time a transit city only. Direct flights to my hometown Naples were quite rare, so I was travelling tons of times across this city just to hit the airport and be gone. I had to realize a while ago that Basel has a lot more to offer and isn’t that far away from in number of events, cultural life and summer outdoor experiences compared to Zurich. I attended one of the most outstanding fall festivals here, which is Baloise Session, and my homebase for a night has been the most perfect fit in order to have unforgettable memories.
The Amsterdam Dance Event is more than just connecting all the lovers of electronic music from different countries or a huge networking platform for professionals: despite the musical events, it also offers to the public an insight into art and movies connected with the scene.
My week in Amsterdam has started this afternoon, and I couldn’t be happier that I had the chance to come back this soon! I will pretty much try to keep you as updated as I can with this series that begin from today. I hope you’ll join the ride and be my companion through the streets of this wonderful city I’m never getting tired of, with new insights and finally attending the very famous Amsterdam Dance Event. I was talking to join this great event since five years already, and now it’s really happening!
When I meet new people and I tell them I’m coming from a South Italian city called Benevento, all I see is a big question mark on their faces. So to make things easier, I explain that it’s pretty much close to Naples. And then comes the big “Aww, yeah Naples, the Amalfi Coast, Capri…”.
As you might already had the pleasure to read about in one of my latest blogpost, I have this thing for wide views. I love taking as many shots as possible from panoramas, doesn’t really matter if I have beaches,cities or other landscapes in front of me: I adore them all! This might has to do with the fact that I was raised part of my life on a hill in South Italy, where I could overlook over all little towns from my terrace, surrounded by silence, holding an espresso and being barefoot most of the time.
Being in and around Naples can get quite magical. I am very proud when it comes to talking about the Italian region I come from. Italy’s obviously beautiful in every way and every part of it has something special, that’s for sure.
Hear, hear! We’re having a wonderful summer up here! Seriously, Zurich has been blessed this year with a good bunch of days full of sunshine, so the need of escaping down south, were the rain risk is lower, totally disappeared.
My hometown offers a good variety of possibilities on how to spend days like these. Our city is well known for having tons of little places to escape the daily stress and enjoy your afterwork rays outside with a cold drink. There’s something for every gusto and, for your own personal refreshment, you can choose between a river or the lake.
There are these places full of creativity, every city has them.
Seven years ago I had the first festival experience ever in my life. At the time my brother was a huge Justice fan, so the only showdate in Switzerland was their appearence at the Paléo Festival in Nyon. I basically had no idea what to expect and how an event like this looks like. So I drove down almost to the French border and was surprised of what I found – let’s say, 2007 was the year of the beginning of my very permanent festival visitor disease. And I’m thankful for that
Here we are again, lovely people ❤ – my weekly throwback to northern Europe brings you to another super inspirational city: Berlin.
