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 stepped out of the coach that took myself to Noosa, I was feeling quite weird. In the beginning, I had no idea why: I just arrived in a lovely town, I had warm air around my ears and a beach pretty close to me. It was a choking feeling, like air was almost missing in my lungs…
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…”.
I spent the most time I was in Australia by hanging around in Brisbane. This happened because I was trying to avoid thunderstorms coming up on the northern coast. As you might have noticed, I am a coast lovers, but I have to admit that Brisbane was one of my favourite cities of Australia. I walked through the different districts, and I put together a list of my favourite places.
It was pretty clear for me that during my month in Australia I wanted to see Koalas and Kangoroos once. I am not a fan of caged animals though, so I tried to figure out where I could see them in a friendlier environment. We were lucky enough to be served by an amazing staff at the YHA Hostel in Brisbane City, where they reccommended us to go and visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.
Barcelona, like Amsterdam, is one of those cities where I like to come back to every year. First, because I really like this place, especially the combination of metropolitan vibe and beach town; second, because the Sonar Week and the love for electronic Music call once a year anyway.
I still have loads about Australia to tell you guys, but I’m Feeling more inspired to inform you about the places I am visiting now in Indonesia. I’ll save some Posts for the cold and rainy days back home, before I’ll head to my next destinations in Europe. Fortunately, I still have interesting stuff coming up, so I might won’t be that affected from post travelling Depression 🙂
Sometimes things don’t exactly go as planned. This concept concerns life in general, but also more specific things: like here, travelling. There where three places that I desperately wanted to see during my trip on the Australian coast: Nimbin, Fraser Island and the Whitsundays. I had to cancel Nimbin because of Cyclone Marcia back in the days and now the weather seems to wanna play crazy again, so no Whitsundays for me.
After explaining the reason of my disease – travelling – I wanted to jump directly to the second most asked question that comes up very often when I talk to People: HOW do you travel that much?
