My name is Anna and I’m a licensed tour leader and the creator of this blog. I caught the travel bug in my 20s and my life has changed since then.
I’m an Italian girl based in Portugal, however my heart is Israel: this is the reason why I know the country, the culture and hopefully I’ll be able to speak Hebrew soon!
Since I was a teenager, I had the great fortune of living in international contexts, favored by educational choices, friendships, holidays and experiences abroad. I’m that kind of person who can’t just stay still and I realized that traveling is what makes me happy and fulfilled.
After completing a three-year degree in Intercultural Communication, I continued my studies by pursuing a Master’s in Translation and Interpretation. When I was young, I moved to several Italian regions before settling in Genoa for good. I also undertook an internship in Lisbon and studied for a semester abroad in Kingston upon Hull (England). After graduation, I lived for several years in the middle of the ocean working on cruise ships as a Shore Excursion Staff.
The name of my blog – Viaggiovagando – is an Italian word I invented to express travelling around the world and wandering with imagination.
I created the blog in 2012 and, in the past, I wrote about all the places I visited for vacation and work. I decided to keep the posts and collect them under the generic heading Archive. I look like one of those people who is afraid to throw old things away, right? I think they can be useful for those looking for information and to let you understand my path of life and experiences as well.
