A Christmas Carol – Book Review

A Christmas Carol – Book Review

Title: A Christmas Carol Author: Charles Dickens Date: 1843 Today is my last day of holidays, since tomorrow will be spent between three different airports to go back home. So, what better, during my last day of Christmas vacation, than writing about the most Christmassy book ever? This work of art by Charles Dickens is my first book of 2018. I had it there, on my Italian shelf, and I finally picked it up. Of course, my mind was always remanascing the Walt Disney animated movie, which is amazing, but the book is on a whole different level. For those few who don’t know

Welcome 2018!

Welcome 2018!

Popping a virtual bottle of champagne (Or prosecco, as every self-respecting Italian) I here wish you an amazing new year! It’s been a while since I’ve felt this happy about a new year starting, and I want to writtenly record this moment on here. In exactly one week I will be back to Copenhagen, the place I feel like home. I will go back to work and my routine, but it’s from today that I want to start with my new year’s resolutions. My main focus is not to ever be bored. Every time I will feel like I’m wasting time, I

Aarhus I’ve only hear nice things about the second largest city of Denmark, and from the pictures I’ve seen, it will definitely be a hyggeligt stay. Odense Can a H.C. Andersen obssessed like me not visit the author’s hometown? Of course not. Bornholm This is a place people mention all the time in Denmark, and from the fantastic pictures, definitely worth a visit. Oslo Crossing danish borders, I can’t wait to see the norwegian capital city (I’m

Finally, the beginning of the adult life. Just on the paper; we know that your adult life started way long before the 18 candles on the cake. Well, the Alessandra who’s writing to you is about to turn 23. I know, 23! You always think “23 is the age my parents got married, it’s adult life in its depth, I

Moving to Denmark | Basics

Moving to Denmark | Basics

In July 2017, I packed my most important and necessary stuff, I said bye to the most important people in my life – and my country –  and moved 1500 kilometers away… to Copenhagen! I first visited this city in May 2015. I was lucky enough to be asked to join a workshop in the headquarters of the company I was doing an internship in, and I obviously said yes! That’s how I fell in love with this capital city and, later on, decided I wanted it to be my home. Through my job, again, I got the opportunity to move
